Fiz: Pets

Introducing the furriest member of our family!  This is Fiz; our 4 year old tabby cat.   

Fiz joined the Morgan household in June 2007. She was 6 weeks old, tiny and gorgeous! My first pet, I fell in love with her in no time at all. Over the years she has firmly established that her favourite things are tuna, my pink gown, her green mousey toy, drinking water out of the bath tap, scratching the arms of our sofa, snoozing in soft places and her Daddy-Cat (also known as BellePixelle photographer Jon;  I'm only wanted first thing in the morning for fusses because she can't wake him up, for dishing out the treats because she knows she can win me around and I'll only do for everything else when and if he isn't around!) 

As you can see Fiz enjoys lying down. A lot. A typical lazy cat! Infact as I type this it appears she has taken herself up the stairs for another snooze on the bed. That'll be the umpteenth time today! 

Pets are often the members of a family that outsiders rarely understand. Especially if they are not pet owners themselves. BellePixelle understand that more often than not the furry friends in our lives are like our extra children. Fiz is most definitely one of my babies and I'm very guilty of spoiling her rotten!  

Having a resident pet has given us lots of opportunity for capturing examples of our pet photography. We've been lucky enough to use lots of our friends furry household members too! 

We would love for your fur-baby to be next; how about a special professionally captured portrait to treasure for life?

Daniel and Janet: Wedding

One of the first occasions we were asked to undertake in our new photography venture was my brother's wedding. This was Autumn 2010 and their wedding was booked for just over 6 months away. Our vision for BellePixelle at the time was in its very baby beginnings and naturally Jon was apprehensive about taking on such a big occasion so soon. Photography shoots generally don't get bigger than a wedding; and my brother's was no exception with over 200 guests invited to the day! 

The date was agreed and BellePixelle set about preparing our kit and ideas ready for the big day. 

So the 26th March 2011 rolled around and their wedding day; we slipped into our dual roles of close family of the bride and groom, photographer, bridesmaid and photographer's assistant. We like to be busy! 

Janet of course looked simply stunning in her lace overlay gown finished with sequins and pearls. Calm, collected and radiant all day is not something many brides can boast but Janet took the entire day in her stride. Happiness shone from both Daniel and Janet throughout the day along with the weather which was gloriously warm and sunny for early spring. 

Like all good weddings there was a theme; daffodils. Long been the running joke in our family of joining the Welsh with the English; Daniel (the Welsh one) and Janet (the English one) wed in her home city Plymouth but incorporated a beautiful yellow Welsh daffodil theme into their big day. And with the sun shining it couldn't have been a more perfect choice. 

Our personal favourite part of the day was spending time at Saltash Passage capturing those beautiful new married couple moments! Going there en-route between ceremony and reception provided the only part of the day Daniel and Janet were really alone to revel in the moment of being just married, and provided us with some of our BellePixelle favourite shots from the day! 

All in all; capturing their entire wedding day started from 9.00am with bride and groom preparations and finished at well gone 9.00pm with their first dance. When the camera was finally put away at 10pm, and Jon was handed a well earned pint, a lot of photos had been taken and after all was finished we had more than 400 post-processed, fully edited photographs to give them in all.

BellePixelle abolutely love the finished work from our first big occasion shoot, and it is extra special to us that it was a personal family event too. If you want to peek at just a few more shots go take a look at our Facebook page and read Daniel and Janet's wedding write up in the The Plymouth Herald

Thank you for giving us such a big part in your day Mr and Mrs V!
