Royden Park Family Shoot


Family Shoot at Royden Park

An enjoyable  time capturing  a family shoot as well as some pre wedding pictures
Its nearly time for this family to be celebrating a wedding!  Our couples always love a pre wedding shoot with us and family are always welcome too
It’s always good to get some pics on your own too so we suggest a responsible adult comes along to look after any young children whilst teh couple have their own portraits.

Our style is very natural, not over posey.  We want our couples to engage with each other and that is exactly what Emma & Kevin did.
Lots of smiles and laughter at the ready.   Really going to enjoy their spring wedding at Inglewood Manor.
It was lovely to meet mum and the family too on this pre wedding shoot in our favourite local park on the Wirral – Royden Park.

Unfortunately the walled garden was closed during the visit – looks like they were re-planting and organising the garden
Still plenty of other options to enjoy. The daffodils made for a beautiful frame. Emma spotted a Wirral rocks pebble which made for a unique ring shot.

Enjoy these highlights, just a few weeks to go til the wedding itself.

Couple Shoot: Claire & Simon Reunited

Pixsmiths don’t just do engagement shoots we also enjoy couple shoot . We just love shooting any couples in love whether engaged to be married or married already.
Indeed we have previously shot anniversary shoots as a celebration of love.

We were so happy to capture some gorgeous shots for Claire and Simon, happily married for several years now.  Claire is a fellow wedding supplier, a  lovely mobile hair dresser and super mum to Evie.
Simon’s work takes him away from work for long periods and its true when they say “absence makes the heart grow fonder”. Claire and Simon can certainly testify to that!
Simon went of to sea just before Christmas and has only just recently returned.

Being an incurable romantic it was Valentine’s Day when the idea for this shoot came about.  Claire was naturally missing her man even more so on this day …
so light bulb moment and sent her a private message, explaining would love to do a shoot for them when Simon was back home…
but in the meantime they were to write down how much they were missing each other ..and bring these letters with them to read.
the momentum was buildign when Claire did a live facebook video as she waited (ages) for him at the airport.
Neither had seen each others letters before the shoot.  so the stage was set, a sunny afternoon in Royden Park last weekend.
Well it was truly heartwarming and an honour to capture such a personal moment.

this is what Claire had to say, “honestly I have to say it was so special ❤️ One of the most beautiful ways of showing our love for each other was made today .
Simon said, he felt quite emotional afterwards, “it was like saying our vows again”.  There were hugs and kisses and lots of laughter!

It truly gladdened our hearts to do this shoot, its really good to give back and see the sincere appreciation of such lovely deserving couples.
We all had beaming smiles. Thank you so much again Claire and Simon for allowing us to capture this special time with you.

Of course we sneaked a few shots with Evie too, she love to pose for the camera – she can often be seen modelling bridesmaids dresses on a wedding show catwalk too!

So couple shoots are not just a way to get to know a photographer but a chance to celebrate your love and enjoy something special and making memories.
we look forward to arranging a shoot for you.  Please get in touch

Royden Park Couple Shoot: Danielle and Dennis

Back at Royden Park for another engagement shoot – this time with Danielle and Dennis
We never tire of visiting here, always something new to discover, new options for pics>
What a sunny-natured couple – their joy was so evident.
plus Danielle picked the perfect outfit for the shoot she loves the colour yellow – brings so much sunshine and fun

Danielle and Dennis had never been to the walled garden at Royden Park or the little nearby mere
Royden Park is run by the local council and has a handy cafe in the coach house courtyard  run by volunteers too.  More information on the Park  here
They were enthralled with the location and the floral beauty. Even more so when they saw the Laburnum arch – almost in full bloom – well a match made in heaven!

We met one of the rangers just beforehand who gave us updates on the garden – nearly time for poppies to bloom. Also the kestrel is still residing in the old tower and is currently sitting on 5 eggs.
If you go in to the coach house – just by the Barking mad cafe there are monitors in there so they can check for the new hatchlings.  Must go again soon!

For now enjoy a few of the images from the session.  Dennis will be marrying his beautiful Brazilian bride in October this year and we can;t wait for another day capturing their happy smiles

Wirral Engagement Shoot
A stroll around Royden Pak with Laura & Dan

We dodged the rain for this lovely Wirral engagement shoot with Laura and Dan.  An hour before wet ..and later on in the evening it rained.
We had a perfect window of weather – not too hot/bright but fresh colours after the rain made it just right…plus very few people around so even better!
Lots of colour and features in the walled garden, The laburnum arch is almost ready, some good coverage for this shoot though, always a popular location.
Just a brief stop here as rangers were closing up early but still plenty of other areas in the park to explore.  The heron on the mere even made an appearance for us!

Their daughter Rebecca is going to be a flower girl for their summer wedding next year. …they thought she might be shy and would be a good idea to bring her along to get to know us.
Well she was far from shy,  a model in the making …almost stole the show! she Loved the camera and the camera her!

Laura and Dan were just so natural, and a treat for Dan’s birthday too.  We really can’t wait for their wedding ..they are going to be a dream>
Its not til next summer but Laura and Dan have taken advantage of a weddign fayre special and have one of our fabulous weddign apps where guest can RSVP,
save the date to their calendars and see the schedule and locations for thee wedding.  Their app has now been updated with highlights from this Wirral engagement shoot
Its a useful wedding app that will that will continue to be added too after the wedding and be a lovely digital keepsake of their wedding journey.

It was a fab session and so many images captured just a few we hope you enjoy.  All their engagement images will be provided with their wedding images on our prettily packaged USB
