WE COULD BE {SUPER} HEROES

At the beginning of this year (boy, doesn’t that seem like forever ago?) we ran a competition to celebrate the launch of My BLOVED, with prizes from our incredible BLOVED Edit Members.  The top prize was a family shoot, styled by myself, with mum treated to makeup by Ana Ospina and photographed by the wonderful Fiona Kelly.  On a chilly day in March we finally came together to bring the shoot to life for our winner – Emma Thorburn and her adorable family.  With two superhero obsessed little boys – Gabriel, 6, and Brodie, 3 – the concept for the shoot was easy, they needed to become superheroes to save their mum and dad from an evil baddie!

From their cosy reading nook, the boys discovered a cry for help nestled in between the pages, and so began their transformation…

Gabriel & Brodie each received a superhero ‘kit’ with a felt cape and mask, complete with power juice (a necessity for all budding superheroes!). With the help of Little B writer Jenny from Hip Hip Hooray, I created comic book signs and cut out superhero symbols ready to decorate their capes with help from mum and dad – and a lot of pritstick!  Mum Emma, who is also the fabulous baker & creator behind Buns of Fun also created a superhero cake for us!  Transformation complete, they were ready to step out into the big bad world and save the day!

Mum Emma said “The shoot was a lovely thing to do, my babies look super (hero-y!).  Brodie turned three the following week and it was fab to be able to mark his age in a fun way and get some lovely photos of our family together too! Thank you for everything”

This was such a fun shoot and delightful family to work with!

Mission complete.

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
