Its always a little daunting to book a photo shoot for a fellow photographer but it’s also great to catch up with a good friend. This was a day for both. Top newborn photographer Angela Sayers from Lytham specialises in those gorgeous pictures of babies that only a certain skill and patience can achieve. I love her work and it seemed the appreciation was mutual as we met for her family photography session at Hoghton Tower, the place where Angela and Tim celebrated their wedding reception. Meeting up brought back memories of Jessops camera shop where we first worked. The nasty blue shirts and long hours dreaming of our own businesses. Was it really 15 years ago? I remember we used the second floor at the Blackpool branch for a fashion shoot. Even on our days off we wanted to be around cameras. Was it passion? (more like obsession!) Finding out what you want to do and what you love is an exciting time in life and sharing those years with friends who feel the same is really special. Through the years, those times of striving and hoping have turned into confidence, experience and gratefulness but it’s always good to be reminded of the beginning with all its frustrations, impatience and expensive reels of film! Its great to see how far we have come and meet the new little people that are now part of the journey, but whatever life brings for us, the feeling that never changes is that we were made to take pictures.
