Family and Child 2015

Planning to have your family photos taken can be an exciting time! You will be spending  time together and creating memories for you to enjoy. I feel its important to choose a photographer who can capture you as you really are, the true you. I specialise in photographing children and families and bringing out the best in them to photograph and capture their character and smiles.

CUSTOM PHOTOGRAPHY AND WHY IS IT WORTH INVESTING IN

I would like to explain what Custom photography is. Its basically luxury investment. It requires a lot of time and money, commitment and planning as well as a big amount of time for the photographer. It is a special experience and one worth investing in if you appreciate quality.

Custom photography is based on being unique and having a unique style. It is really wonderful to have an experience where you can trust a photographer. It is well worth investing in a photographer who values your experience and wants you to have the best time and images that will last.

HOW TO PLAN?

Together we will discuss ideas to make a beautiful experience for you, to create your story thorough photography. I like to work with you to design a theme for your session, that will tell your unique story through imagery in a unique and beautiful way that is personal to you.

Each session that l do is completely different, unique to you. I do put a lot of time and ideas into your session to make it amazing. DSC_0014A session with me just really requires you to be yourself and to not worry about anything. I am there to photograph you as you are. I love capturing your true story.

Sessions with me are a lot of fun, personalised and unique. And we do normally take short breaks if you have little ones as they can get tired.

ANDREA AND KARENS WEDDING DAY

 I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful wedding back in February. It was such a beautiful day, a breath taking venue and lovely company. Defiantly a day l will treasure. 🙂 DSC_0167After having a lovely engagement session with Andrea and Karen and there beautiful dogs, and chatting about ideas for there wedding, l knew it was going to be even more wonderful.

The day of the wedding was here and l already went up to the venue a few days before to have a look around and let me tell you l was blown away, its such a breath taking place.DSC_0009

THE MODEL PROJECT

DSC_00111Because l have had a lot of interest in model shoots the past few days, l have decided to put together a project. I am thinking a garden based shoot involving lots of floral and nature. And l am looking at shooting the natural beauty. This project will take place in Penmaenmawr, so if anyone needs directions please don’t hesitate to ask.

Outfit wise l am looking at plain dresses with no distraction. Makeup is to be kept very natural as little a possible.

I am looking at shooting this project over July, so if any models are interested then please do contact me via my Facebook page, Abigail Chanelle Photography

I am looking at taking on as many models as l can, whoever is interested in the project. I look forward to hearing from you all. 🙂

BE AN INSPIRATION

Four months ago l decided to start intense training so l could be fit enough for the army. I made that decision and l went for it. I made a deal and l stuck to it. Four weeks of training already done and l am getting stronger every day.

I think its all to do with motivation and discipline. If you want to work out you need both. And that’s why l made the decision to get trained for the army.

My inspiration is my Grandad, who was in the army all those years ago. This is his hat and l will treasure it even when l am successful in the army. To have his army hat on my head is so over powering and l want to make him proud. I will go into the army not just for me but for him. I have two weeks of training then l will be applying. Eekk. To get this far with my training l feel so proud of myself. It will be an honour when l get into the army.11425486_10152987706140959_2375231427014919147_n

INPERFECTION

I remember when l first started out in photography, how bad l was trying to create my first website. I look back now and think why. But we all start somewhere right! I could feel myself getting better at photography everyday.

I do talk to myself often telling myself “l am not ready to post this shoot yet or put this site up” In life things do not have to be perfect, they just always need improving. I would encourage you to be in flow with yourself.

From time to time l do often ask myself, ”What would I do if I didn’t have to do it perfectly” I think the first thing that comes into my mind is my future, where will l go from here, when will l marry, will l ever have children. I defiantly find myself saying when l have x amount of money in the bank, l will find a way of shaping my future.

I am going to take my own advice and know that in life all the things you learn, you learn as you go.

Remember your desires and interests. Take action on them.

FITNESS POST

Last week l made a deal that if my friend would get me fit, l would apply for the TA. So we shuck hands and made a deal. Oh my goodness l can’t go back now.

Day two of my training and l am starting to feel it but l feel pretty amazing. In the past l would just workout for fun but l use to always slack and l never got anywhere, because sometimes l would say l will workout next week and l never did it. But a lot of the time our busy work life will always get in the way and we don’t have time for it. But that’s where you need to say to yourself l just got to do it, if l want to be fit and healthy l need to make sacrifices.

So day two of my training l did muscle exercises like the squats and lunges which let me tell you are a killer, but defiantly worth it and l am feeling my legs today. Yesterday l did a lot of running, and when working out l would recommend that running is one of the best to loose calories.

Nutrition: I now have a food plan that l have to stick to Monday to Friday, most of it includes protein, carbs and veg. I feel its defiantly helping me because it means l am cooking my own meals and not being lazy. I have also reduced my alcohol intake and leaving an occasional glass of wine for special occasions.

I want to thank everyone who has wished me luck, it seriously means a lot. 🙂

Life is full of ups and downs, l really would like us all to encourage and to love ourselves wherever we are on this journey and to tell ourselves we are doing great. Encourage each other to live our fullest potential and build each other up. Its all about positivity. x
