A new family member

I love seeing a new family all together, and I love seeing a kid become a brother or sister. This little guy was so cute with his new brother, and was obviously so proud to be a big brother himself.

A beautiful in-home family session

It’s always lovely to meet new families and I really enjoyed hanging out with this lovely lot. It was also really fun to photograph an almost-teenager, as it’s usually younger children in front of my lens. I also loved their gorgeous home and all the fun things in it!

Leamington newborn in-home session

This gorgeous family have been with me since the early days of being a professional photographer – I photographed their little boy as a brand new baby about three years ago (almost to the day in fact) and it was their session that made me think that yes, I could do this, and I wanted […]

Birmingham Winter

It’s always wonderful to be able to meet up with old friends, so it was great to do a shoot for an old schoolfriend and netball teammate whom I’d not seen for twenty years. TWENTY YEARS! How in the world did that happen? I photographed her beautiful little family in their favourite spot of Moseley […]

Macmillan competition winner: in-home baby shoot

I was contacted last year by a lady who was running a Macmillan coffee morning with raffle, and was looking for some prizes to offer. I try to do a few charity prize shoots per year, as I think it’s a great way for me to be able to give to charity and Macmillan is […]

Always work with children and animals

Some people say to me ‘it must be hard getting children to cooperate’. The truth is, I never mind, because that energy that kids have is the very thing I love to capture. Throw a dog into the mix and it adds a whole new element, especially a dog that thinks it’s a puppy! But […]

A gorgeous in-home Grandparents shoot

I’ve only done one shoot before with grandparents involved, but never one just with grandparents, and now I want to do more!  Grandparents can be so integral to our children’s lives (and ours!) and I absolutely loved capturing that unique bond.

Golden hour at Compton Verney

Sometimes, the light and the people and the place just work and you end up with a set of images that just glow. I was so lucky to get to photograph my lovely friend with her beautiful family at Compton Verney recently and these images are some of my favourite ever.

A wintry walk

It was a lovely sunny, chilly day in the park last Sunday, playing with these gorgeous little people. I’ve never had such a smiley pair! We covered a lot of ground, racing around the park and seeing all their favourite bits as well as seeing some new bits they’d never seen before.

Autumn / winter minishoot madness!

I tried something new this month – minishoots! I went along to a wonderful little playgroup and did a few short shoots for some of the families there, during their regular play session. It was a very different thing from my usual hour or two shoots, but I think we captured some lovely shots. Here […]
