Countryside adventures with Hettie

A new photoshoot for Hettie with Tom Wood Photography

It has been difficult trying to plan a photoshoot with the pandemic and social distancing , but last week we managed to arrange a shoot with Tom who is our family photographer and a professional wedding photographer . Tom has a lovely relaxed style of photography and has taken many of our lifestyle shoots

Tom and I went for a walk in the beautiful woods near his studio in Chipping Norton - and his lovely labrador Conker came along too . She was the perfect model !  



Labradors as pets

Large, soft and energetic, Labrador Retrievers are one of the most popular dog breeds in the world- and for good reason. With their typically gentle temperament and obedient nature, they make great companions and are commonly used as service and therapy dogs.

They love being around people and make the ideal dog for families as they have a high tolerance of children and are usually very gentle.

Check out our blog collaboration with Sainsbury's for help choosing your family pet.


Tom Wood Photography

" Are you getting married in Oxfordshire and looking for a photographer who will capture your day in a relaxed, honest, unobtrusive, and beautiful way? Are you looking for reportage style images with character and soul? We're based in Chipping Norton , Oxfordshire, and specialise in Fine Art Reportage Wedding Photography.

Creating a collection of beautiful images that will stand the test of time is key. In 50 years when you're sat down with your grandchildren looking through your wedding album, remembering your feelings on the day will be more important than anything else! "


Chipping Norton

Tom's studio is in the lovely Cotswold town of Chipping Norton and the woods nearby are so pretty.

Renowned for its antique shops and diverse shopping offer, including a regular market - Chipping Norton retains a robust living, working market town atmosphere. There is good choice of places to eat and top quality entertainment at the wonderful Theatre, famous for its pantomime and visiting world class performers.

A film recommendation by Hettie - The Art of Racing in the Rain  

This wonderful film is based on the novel by Garth Stein. You will need a box of tissues !
Denny Swift is a Formula One race car driver who understands that the techniques needed on the racetrack can also be used to successfully navigate everyday life. Besides his career, Denny has three loves of his life -- his beautiful wife, their young daughter and his best friend, which is a dog that wants to be reincarnated into a human.
