A Poppy in the poppies

I have a Poppy. It was always the girl’s name I had in my head if I ever had a daughter. When I gave birth to my first child and she was indeed a girl, I scooped her wearily in my arms and knew she was definitely a Poppy. Then when I whispered the name to her and she stared right back at me, wide-eyed and unblinking, I thought just the mere fact that she hadn’t screamed the place down immediately meant that she must agree with me that it was meant to be.

It goes without saying that I also love the flowers too – a short but beautiful season of swathes of delicate, translucent, vibrant colours. Sort of a showstopper kinda flower.

I have been searching for a decent poppy field for a few years – there are not many around these parts, it seems. When I heard of a local place, I knew I had to go there with Poppy. So, yesterday afternoon, after school, we had a small window of time – just half an hour. Here are the results. A breath-taking field of red with my gorgeous flower-girl. Hope you enjoy them.

People are always asking me what i do to my photographs on the computer – I promise that these portraits are pretty much unaltered straight out of my camera, I don’t do any photoshop trickery afterwards. To me, it’s all about getting it right in-camera.

If you would like to learn more about using your camera, how you can improve your photography and how to capture beautiful, creative portraits of your children, then I have a look at my next Creative Photography for Parents Workshop which is on Sat 27th July.
