Day 14 of @evielewisphotography #dedicateddecember diary focuses on a Christmas offer. My day job scuppered all thoughts of trying to get a photography Christmas offer out the door. But when asked by a friend to help with a Christmas present, we hatched a plan to do take a few (hundred) pics of a beautiful lady. Such fun, and all editing done, so now it's decision time. . . . #dedicateddecember #evielewisphotography #day14 #Christmasoffer #photoshoot #lastminutepresents #photos #photographer #photography #hampshire #hampshirephotography #hampshirephotographer #dogsandhorses #annarainbowphotography #dogs
It's not often one says that winter is amazing, but on days like today, it so is. Super early start but watching the sun rise on my dog walk was super lovely, even the deer weren't that bothered by us. Another busy weekend looms. Fingers crossed we're not totally flooded out tomorrow. Difficult to believe it's possible with today's sunshine. Who's got plans for the next two days? . . . #sunrise #wintermornings #jackfrost #winterwalks #morningwalks #dogwalks #earlystarts #itsfriday #nearlytheweekend #busyweekendahead #planningmyday #southdowns #storytelling #photos #photographer #photography #hampshirephotography #landscapes #views #annarainbowphotography

I'm often asked when was it that I decided to start my business. Today's day 13 #dedicateddecember topic is just that. In part that depends which business. With my PR business it was simple. I'd been moved sideways after having baby number 2 and that made me think long and hard about my future. Setting out as an independent was super scary. The Internet and email hardly existed, let alone social media! Fast forward 10 years and my little girl had her own, super wicked, pony. From her first XC training session, I went everywhere with a camera - in this case 35mm film - to capture the good (and bad) moments. Fast forward another 10 years and I am where I am today. Two thriving businesses and for the most part, loving what I do. . . . #dedicateddecember #day13 #evielewisphotography #startinganewbusiness #businessplans #PR #PRpractitioner #PRbusiness #b2b #photography #photographer #photographybusiness #2019goals #20yearsinbusiness #equestrianphotography #equestrianphotographer #storytelling #decisionmaking
Today's post. TThank you @tomlane.co for such a speedy delivery! Not sure I really want to give the contents away! Can't reveal them here - too many prying eyes... . . . #christmasshopping #tomlane #beautifulthings #presents 🎁 #christmasiscoming #todayspost #speedydelivery
What goes on behind the scenes? As a photographer, there is often as much work that goes on in the lead up to a wedding as there is on the wedding day itself. For me, having time to tell the whole story from start to finish is what really counts. That often means taking time out to see what's going on 'behind the scenes'. This image is a classic example of just that as I popped in to a wedding reception venue a couple of days before the big day. It was all coming together brilliantly and the mother/daughter love was so evident. . . . #dedicateddecember #evielewisphotography #day12 #behindthescenes #weddingphotos #capturingthemagic #photos #photographer #photography #hampshirephotography #caughtinamoment #thedaybeforethedaybefore #mothersanddaughters #weddingphotography #weddingphotographer #weddingmemories #annarainbowphotography #perfectmoments #momentsintime #canonphotography #canon5d
Sneaking in in the nick of time on day 11 of the brilliant #dedicateddecember challenge. It's not a challenge to do, but there don't appear to be enough hours in the day. Day 11 is 'Testimonial Tuesday'. I'm no good at shouting from the roof tops about what I do or how I do it. However, I still get goose bumps when I read comments like these. They make me do a little happy dance whenever I feel lacking in photography mojo and I too had a fabulous day - one of the very hottest of the year! . . . #dedicateddecember #evielewisphotography #instagramchallenge #tuesdaytestimonial #day11 #weddings #weddingday #photographer #weddingflowers #storytelling #photography #hampshire #hampshirephotography #hampshirephotographer #weddingthankyou #weddingmemories #weddingmoments #mrandmrs #brideandgroom #photos #capturethemagic #summerwedding
How has your week started? Mondays should be all about #motivation For many the beginning of the week is about goal planning for the forthcoming week. As today started, I knew I was up against more deadlines than I cared to think about. That said, I still knew I had a few goals to set over and above my 9-5. Funnily enough making sure my old lady got out to stretch her legs was was key to my day. So often when you can't see the wood for the trees, taking timeout is crucial to your day. I know much of the rest of the week is taken up with corporate communications meetings, so need to do a little planning to ensure all the other bits on my to do list can be accommodated - riding and dog walking are all part of the plan. . . . #dedicateddecember #evielewisphotography #day9 #weeklygoals #corporatecommunications #communicationsplanning #crisiscomms #planningmyweek #PRgirl #clientmeetings #timeout #dogwalks #timeforme #dogs #takingherselfforawalk #mondaymotivation
The little joys of the week, so asks Day 9 of @evielewisphotography #dedicateddecember What can I say. It's rained a lot, which meant riding for the most part went out the window but I did get to go for a much needed country part hack with H's best mate Jacob. Always good for the soul and he felt much better post physio. Couldn't catch Jacob though! Better than that though was handing over a mega album to a client. I was quite nervous if it would turn out OK. But really should have trusted my initial instincts. I love it as so does she, so three smaller versions to be ordered tomorrow. A great way to end a manic week . . . #dedicateddecember #day9 #littlejoys #albumdelivery #birthdaybook #familytime #familymemories #photos #90thbirthday #specialdelivery #photography #photographer #hampshirephotography #hampshirephotographer #storytelling #surprises
You can really notice when a horse has good movement. Little Burty here was attending his first ever show and put it a fab test for c78%. He seemed to take the whole competition atmosphere, decidedly inclement weather and a super spooky corner in his stride. . . . #smallandsuperchargedsunday #mydayattheoffice #eventphotographer #eventphotography #unaffiliateddressage #dressage #firstshow #dressagehorse #photos #photographer #ridingclub #HRRC #ridingclubshow #thepriory #winterdays
Asked what the perks of my role are is quite a difficult question to answer. On reflection there are two answers that could be equally valid. The obvious is that I get to photograph some seriously gorgeous horses, not always competing, but as photography becomes a bigger part of what I do, the enjoyment of capturing animals I've been around almost all my life seems like a pretty good perk to me. However, I could just as easily say that there are few perks about being 'jobbing' photographer. Long hours, endless requests for discounts, and the lack of appreciation that taking photographs is only the start of any particular photo shoot. Often the time taken to edit, collate, upload and deliver the finished product far outweighs the initial camera time. In spite of all I've said, if I could, I would spend twice or three times as many hours taking pictures as I do now. Ultimately the perk is being lucky enough to do something I really love. . . . #dedicateddecember #evielewisphotography #day8 #perksofthejob #photography #storytelling #photographer #photographers #equestrian #equinephotography #equestrianphotography #equestrianphotographer #dressage #equinephotographer #horses #photos #newskills #canonphotography #canon5dmarkiii
Morning views - what a start to the weekend. Walking the streets of South London on a surprisingly quiet Saturday morning. . . . #auditiondropoff #theshard #peckham #streetviews #londonwalks #photos #saturdays
Day 7 of the fab #dedicateddecember 'challeng' is all about favourites. Today's is a shout out to my favourite #Insta profile. At first I thought it could be a difficult choice as there are many people's and businesses' profiles that I follow closely and love what I see, so I do just that. Hit the red button. Why I've chosen @hihosilveruk is two fold. I love watching their stories unfold through their posts but more importantly, I love wearing my little collection of Hiho goodies. . . . #dedicateddecember #evielewisphotography #bestinsta #favouriteprofile #silver #jewellery #silverjewelry #storytelling #bestbits #photos #photographer #photography #hampshirephotography #southdowns #rosebuds #rosepetals #candles
Day 6 is all about #flatlay and who doesn't like a flatlay? As a photographer collating physical things that represent my brand as well as tell a story are core to my way working. Being asked to capture the magic of a wedding is an honour as much as it is an assignment. I love seeing the day unfold and the story evolve. . . . #dedicateddecember #evielewisphotography #flatlay #capturethemagic #underaweddingspell #weddingphotography #weddingphotographer #weddingmemories #annarainbowphotography #flowers #weddings #weddingday #photographer #weddingflowers #storytelling
What are you doing today? So asks @evielewisphotography on day 5 of her #dedicateddecember On essence I was avoiding the rain, but that raised a question. What do you do to focus your mind before tackling a new business opportunity? 24 hours ago I got asked to attend a meeting with a potential client. Great news, but I didn't know much about the business, so had a great deal to learn in very short order. Rather than sit at my rather crowded desk, I upped and offed on my favourite 4 legged friend to have a bit of me time to plan. Was I right? I'm in the thick of client support now . . . #dedicateddecember #evielewisphotography #day5 #myday #newclientwin #PR #planmyday #PRplanning #crisiscomms #communications #focus #focusthemind #timeout #roadhack #hillwork #horses #myhorseandme #timeforme #horsesinpictures #whatididtoday #photosfrommyhorse #photos
Day 4 of my #dedicateddecember is all about my support team. There are many people out there who are massive supporters, both on a work and personal level as well as my family, friends and the ever increasing client numbers without whom I wouldn't be who I am or do what I do. But this isn't so much about the bigger picture, it's more about two people who have given me opportunities that I have massively enjoyed. They've taught me much and I'm grateful to them both. So my 2018 thank yous go out to @rockinahardplace and @sharon_t_photography . . . #dedicateddecember #whatido #PR #PRgirl #b2b #thankyou #mysupportteam #photography #photographer #evielewisphotography
Really quite an early start this morning, but it is so gorgeous out there it wasn't difficult. A tiny new moon still visible with a few vapour trails.

Day 3 of #dedicateddecember is so appropriate - #mondaymotivation Immaculate timing too. Much of my motivation comes from working or collaborating with others. One of my more recent photography collaborations is capturing the super talented @louisemauferonvernet working with her Fascial Edge on my gorgeous boy to help release tension. His reactions were amusing and irritating in the same proportion, but more important is to record how he feels as we get out on exercise again this week and report back for his second treatment in a few weeks' time. . . . #mondaymotivation #collaborations #evielewisphotography #dedicateddecember #forthegoodofothers #fascialedgetool #equinemodel #photos #photographer #photography #hampshirephotography #equestrian #equestrianphotography #equinemanualtherapy #photoediting #partnerships #day3 #decemberposts #horses
