Cooper's Mersea Island Beach Newborn Session | Grace Elizabeth | Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

Amy was quite heavily pregnant at the time, and as the couple didn't want to do an engagement session, I offered to do newborn photographs instead! You could really tell that their family dynamic was so important to them, especially with son Hudson (who was super excited about having a little sibling!), so I was more than happy to do this instead!

Teddy - for Oh Little Bing Childrenswear | Grace Elizabeth | Alternative Wedding Photographer, Colchester, Essex

Having undertaken the Gold Dust Project, a celebratory, body-positive project which had led me to meet mothers who had suffered with infertility issues, mothers with negative body relationships, and just generally mothers across a huge cross section in Essex, I felt even more compelled to reach out to Lindsey at Oh Little Bing. I had wanted to chat with her about photographing her pieces for such a long time, but the stars hadn't quite aligned... until now.

The Ciantar's Family Session at Crow Point, North Devon | Grace Elizabeth | Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

Tommy's Family Session on a North Devon Farm | Grace Elizabeth | Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

Allow me to introduce you to two of my lovely and oldest friends, Lauren and Dylan. Lauren, Dylan and I go way back, in fact, we all went to school together when I lived in Devon! Since then, the two have fallen in love, are currently engaged to be married, and have two absolutely beautiful little ones, Kaylah and Tommy.

There is actually a bit of a funny story towards me finding out Lauren was pregnant again with Tommy...

Flossie's Family Session at Arger Fen, Suffolk | Grace Elizabeth | Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

Katie and Jono had the perfect little girl, Flossie, and what a cutie she is (you'll get to see her in a minute!) But sadly, her first few months on the planet were met with illness, meaning that the family didn't have a chance to do those family portraits they envisioned in the early days. Thankfully, Flossie soon became a lot better, so we headed to the beautiful Arger Fen on the Essex and Suffolk border for their family photographs when she turned around six months old.

The Gold Dust Project - Chapter Two - Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

After sharing a few images from the project over on Instagram and Facebook, I received the most incredible response from so many people. Whether the comments were from those who had taken part, those who now wanted to take part having seen the photos, or people from across the world who follow me - there was an absolute buzz of positivity! For that, I am so grateful.

But what was so crazy you ask? Well, on February 21st, I received a super special enquiry in my Facebook page inbox..!
