BLOG POST: Wolvercote Apple Day

I live in a Wolvercote, a small village just north of Oxford City Centre. This village and its surroundings, in my opinion, is at its absolute best in early autumn. From the bountiful harvests of fruit and veg on the allotments in Port Meadow, to the horse chestnut trees along the main roads displaying their last fiery glory before their leaves disappear, every corner has a photo opportunity. This weekend the village had its annual Apple Day, where anyone with 50p and a taste for amazing local fruit can rock up, grab a basket and pick their own from an amazing variety of apples that’s been established in the community orchard. Add to that the musical stylings of a funky street band Horns of Plenty, challenges such ‘the longest apple peel’, apple pressing, conker games and beautiful warm weather and you have the perfect recipe for a fun family afternoon.

BLOG POST: Chloe’s Christening and First Birthday

Chloe’s mum Carly got in touch with me a couple of months ago after discovering some of my photography on Facebook, and booked me to document her daughter Chloe’s christening and first birthday party. The ceremony was in a lovely little church on a private estate just west of Bicester and with a party in a nearby pub. Despite a slightly soggy episode at the font, Chloe was thoroughly the centre of attention all day and looked like she was having a blast! It was great to be part of this special day of her early life. SEE IMAGES
