Cudmore Grove Relaxed Beach Family Session | Mother's Day | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

It might have just been Father’s Day, but I’m throwing us back to Mother’s Day for this lovely family session!

The Penny family have been such avid supporters of my work ever since day dot, and for that I am really truly grateful. I first met Joanne’s daughter Katie when she reached out to me last February about covering a charity ball she was organising. She had put the ball together completely herself at Braxted Park to raise money for Alzheimer’s awareness, which was a charity close to her heart as her grandmother has Alzheimers. As my Grandad has dementia, it only made sense to support her by photographing the ball. I am so glad I did, because it was incredible. It was also really lovely because she invited my boyfriend along as my plus one, and I got to see a bunch of school friends. As it turned out, the two of us had lots of mutual friends from school, but had never met!

Laughter-Filled Couple Session | Cudmore Grove Beach, Mersea | Katrina and Jim | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding And Lifestyle Photographer

I am not quite sure you’ll ever find another couple who laugh their way through their couple session quite as much as Katrina and Jim did here. These two were so much fun that even my cheeks hurt from smiling and laughing so much when we finished their photos and got back to the car park.

Well, they were so successful that I’ve decided to run Father’s Day Mini Sessions too, so get excited!

Cudmore Grove Beach Pre Wedding Session (With A Dog!) | Hayley and Sam | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex, Alternative Wedding And Lifestyle Photographer

Hayley and Sam were absolute stars when it came to doing their pre wedding session on a baking hot Bank Holiday Monday in the middle of an extremely busy beach! But these two shy lovebirds didn’t let that bother them, and we had a whale of a time frolicking down on Cudmore Grove’s beach front amongst passers-by definitely wondering what we were doing, and definitely eyeing up Hayley’s beautiful (not to mention on-brand) golden gown! (Ladies, it’s from New Look if you’re wondering - I just had to ask!)

Winter Family Beach Sunset Session at Cudmore Grove | Bushell Family | Grace Elizabeth | Colchester, Essex Alternative Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

I first met Jo (also a wonderful family photographer!) through one of my Gold Dust Project participants, Lorna. After photographing Lorna with her little ones at her home (and spending a little too much time chatting at the end!), just as I was leaving, Lorna’s good friend Jo turned up for a catch up with her. I never expected that a few months down the line, Jo and husband Stephen would be looking for family photos. It is always a HUGE compliment when another photographer wants to book in with me!
