A Maternity Shoot!

If you had said to me back in January “Cerys, one of the loveliest things you will do this year is a maternity shoot”, I would have laughed in your face and told you, you were off your rocker.

Fast forward to August and I find myself walking shoeless through the fern and nestling between heather to get “the shot” up at the Ponderosa Café with Tara from Upon The Heath Photography…and loving every second of it!

“For couples who value emotion and soul.

Storytelling with light, love and laughter.”

I have met Tara a couple of times before {she owns the Oswestry Climbing Den…as well as a nurse at Wrexham Maelor…yes, a busy woman!}, so I knew I was in good hands! As soon as we met up, I was reminded of the easy going, cheerful and all round good egg that she is…I was instantly relaxed and dare I say it, excited?!

I took 3 outfits with me {ha! of course I did!}, but Tara, and her level of knowledge, said to go with the green as it would work well with the fern and the heather. She wasn’t wrong. We headed up into the fern opposite the Abbey in Llangollen and as we chatted, Tara would give a gentle nudge as to what to do, where to look etc, making me feel completely comfortable the whole time.

Happy with what we’d got here, we jumped in the cars and headed up to the Ponderosa Café.

There were a few cars on arrival which made me feel a little nervous. But Tara being Tara, she soon made me forget they were there and soon had me nestled amongst the heather laughing and chatting away.

The weather that evening was absolutely beautiful! The colours up at the Café were simply stunning and before we knew it, Tara had got the shots she wanted and it was time to head home…well, after an Ice Cream stop at Llangollen first! ;)

What a treat! I can’t thank Tara enough for these photos and such a lovely evening. A lovely memory of such a precious time during this weird and wonderful 2020 we found ourselves in.

Tara, Upon The Heath Photography, also does family portraits, couples portraits as well as business photography and her wedding photography is just something else! Definitely one to look up if you’re after any of the above!
