Pretty As A Princess – Prom Photography

Prom Photography with Style

Today, I wanted to write about our visit to Painshill in Cobham.  Having camped next door at Heyswood as a young guide and also a leader in later life, I had never actually visited Painshill … until Friday. My friend has a daughter of Senior’s age and she just finished school this summer. A young lady with ‘the’ most stunning of prom dresses needed a location for her seniors photo shoot that would fit the bill.
I searched the internet for photography locations that were within a reasonable travelling distance for both us and the senior and her mum.  After finding a few nice options, my googling literally ‘stumbled’ upon Painshill Park.  Well, ‘this is it!’ I thought.    This is the ‘icing on the cake’ location for a seniors photography session.  So, a few discussions, and planning arrangements later, all was confirmed for Saturday.
Tony and I went for a recce visit on Friday – something we do whatever and wherever one of our photography shoots are going to be held. Saturday morning dawned and the weather was as promised, dry with sunny spells.  Awesome!  Wouldn’t want it hot and clear skies, and definitely don’t want rain!!
We met up with Yasmin and her mum for a 10.30 start.   We had also booked a buggy for the photography session so that it was easy to get around Painshill and take in as many of the beautiful spots I wanted to capture Yasmin in as possible.  This was, without doubt, a good idea!  Painshill is an 18thCentury Landscape garden and covers a huge area.  You don’t want to be on foot in heels here!  ;o)
Yasmin looked amazing just like a princess, and said herself ‘it’s great to be back in the dress’.  Herself a huge fan of Taylor Swift and Love Story, ‘The Ruined Abbey’ was one location that had me skipping for joy when I saw it at the recce on Friday.
The two hour senior photo shoot was over in flash, but not before we had created some beautiful photographs that Yasmin and her mum should treasure and remember her senior year and her dress, for a long time to come.
I have posted just one image here for now as a sneak peek of Yasmin’s stunning dress, very princess like.  The rest will be shown to Yasmin and her mum soon, and after that I’ll share some more with you all, so be sure to visit here again soon.  Until then!  Happy photo-shooting everyone x
