The children had a Christmas themed photo-shoot a few weeks before the end of November, for the purpose of getting the grandparents personalised Christmas cards. You can find the post on our Christmas cards here. The photos were taken by Carla Jupp photography. Carla Jupp is the founder and owner of Carla Jupp photography. She is extremely passionate about photography, and this shows through the quality of her pictures.
We had a family and new-born shoot with them when Archie was born back in January this year. The photos from that shoot were so beautiful I would never pass up an opportunity to work with Carla Jupp photography again. When I saw Christmas photo-shoot bookings on their Facebook page I couldn’t pass up the chance!
During the Christmas shoot Carla set up different props and backgrounds, as well as beautiful lighting to bring the festive feeling alive, I was so surprised when I walked into the studio to see such a lovely setup for the photos. Her assistant even dressed the part, as a Christmas elf which was lovely and really made the Christmas feeling come alive, especially for the children.
The shoot was a short 20 minutes, so we were in and out. This was great for the children, as sometimes small ones can lose interest quickly. Sophia smiled for every photo and co-operated well, as did Archie. I put this down to Carla’s great skill at taking quality photos in a short period of time and being able to work well with children and understanding their needs during a photo-shoot. All this contributed to an overall happy, calm and professional atmosphere.
The end result, receiving my email from Carla was amazing, to see such beautiful pictures of my children in front of me, ready to use as I wished, couldn’t have made me happier.
Carla, if you happen to stumble on this, thank you so much for giving us a memory of our 2014 Christmas with our two children at this age. I will cherish these beautiful pictures forever.
