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 […]

Down on the farm

Doing this job, you get to discover a lot of hidden gems, and some of those are just beautiful little slices of countryside you’d never normally get to see. This pretty farm is one of those places, and being able to photograph this lovely, friendly young family on their own turf was a joy. We […]
