I have been photographing this morning to promote Bride in the aisle event with the lovely Zoe and Rich from Heart Radio who are supporting the event. Zoe’s been really showing off her modelling skills this morning with a selection of beautiful wedding dresses. While Rich has been playing the role of head bridesmaid, with helping Zoe find her one dream dress for this event. It is not easy finding the right dress so it seems there are 100′s out there but the event is fun so you can wear your wedding dress or why not support a local charity shop and see what you can find for the big event on the 10th May.
What lovely morning thank you everyone x
Stand up to Cancer with Kimberley Garrod Photography. I am supporting standing up to Cancer. I have been watching the Stand up to Cancer Campaigns on TV and newspapers and really want to get involved. Cancer effects so many people and two people in my family and friends circle have died to Cancer. So I want to use my skills as a photographer to help support Stand up to Cancer and help all of you to celebrate your loved ones. So I am standing up to Cancer one day every week from now till end November I will be opening the studio for the whole day to raise money for Stand up to Cancer.
Why am I doing this?
So I have been a photographer for many years capturing the important family moments. A story that has always stayed with me in my career and a story that has changed my life has inspired me to get involved. I was working as a photographer for a corporate studio when I first met the gorgeous little girl by the name of Oliva. Only about 2.5years old she had cancer and she came into the studio after getting the all clear from her doctors after under going some very extensive treatment. Her family wanted to celebrate her life and the family unit as they had a little boy a few years older as well. I remember her hair was only just growing back but she was extremely happy and full of character playing with all her favourite toys in the studio. I created a lovely selection of photographs and when the family came back to view the images we were all crying together looking at the pictures they had come out so beautiful and they really captured her personality and happiness. The power of photography always seems to surprise me. I was so touched to be in the presence of this wonderful family who had really gone though some amazing things together. A couple of months later I got a call from a friend of the family telling me that Oliva had got really ill and that she had passed away. I was so upset hearing this news I realised that the power of photography truly lasts a lifetime and that once the moment has gone it can never be captured again. The studio I was working for at the time would not release the images without a extremely high fee for the images. So against my morals a few weeks later I left the company and set up my own business as a freelance photographer. So the Stand up to Cancer campaign is so important to raise funds to help support and accelerate the pace of groundbreaking research that will get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives.
