Winter Family photo shoot Cornwood, Plymouth, Devon

It was a beautiful day spent on an adventure with this lovely family for their special woodland winter photo shoot. The family chose the location due to the stunning pink painted oak tree; of course the girls love anything pink! The oak tree is a brilliant fluorescent shade of pink painted by Henry Bruce in the small Devon village of Cornwood.

Henry Bruce, 35, wanted to raise awareness of a fungal disease which is affecting trees across the country.

It was very fun on location portrait session, the girls enjoyed exploring the woodland and playing with the leaves and fresh saw dust! As you can see there is so much love in this family and the little girls are so very cute!

I love on location natural family portraits, being a natural light photographer I love nothing more than taking a trip to the local beach, park or woodland with a family to capture them laughing and having fun.

All life stages can be photographed by Liberty Pearl Photography from maternity to 100-year-olds’ birthdays! I am comfortable shooting any age: babies, toddlers, children and adults, for both full family and individual portraits. Please contact me for further information.

Grublin Games – Waggle Dance

Build a beehive, collect pollen and make honey – be efficient, be strategic, outmanoeuvre your opponents! Waggle Dance is a euro-style worker-placement dice game for 2-4 players, designed by Mike Nudd & published by Grublin Games Publishing. To put it on the market, we were booked to photograph the prototype ‘Waggle Dance’ game in the unique community run social enterprise pub BreadandRoses in Plymouth, Devon.

It was an interesting afternoon and the models had great fun exploring the new game. Everybody was getting hooked on the game and learning how to us cunning strategy needed to win the game.

This amazing new board game will only be funded if at least £15,000 is pledged by Sun, Jun 29 2014 11:59 PM BST.

If you would like to back this game please visit the Waggle Dance KickStarter webpage and make a pledge.

More info about the Waggle Dance game…

Waggle Dance is a worker placement dice game where your bees take the form of dice… lots and lots of beautiful dice.  There are two phases to the game, a Day and a Night phase.  During the Day, each player rolls their bee dice and takes turns assigning their bees to different actions within the hive.  Each action enables the players to improve and grow the hive, taking them a step closer to their ultimate goal – HONEY!!!!  Once the Day phase is complete, the night phase triggers and each of the actions are resolved and the hive grows.

It’s up to you how to achieve this… Do you focus on pollen collection, increasing your bee population, expanding your hive, seeking favour with the queen or splitting your resources to accomplish all of these?

Whatever you choose, the natural world is a competitive environment and you can be sure the other players will be looking to maximise their advantage so choose wisely and be efficient!
