  • how cute are they? | friends portrait shoot

  • From now until 5pm Christmas Eve I'm offering a  voucher for my digital portrait package for the special price of £140.  :) Ladies...don't wait until you've lost a few more pounds or grown your hair an inch or two.  You are beautiful now.  Treat yourself or someone you love to a beautiful rem[...]
  • alex - teen model portfolio

  • Gonna say one thing. Lashes. Yes they're real *sigh*. I was absolutely delighted when Alex's mum Joanne contacted me about taking some shots for her model portfolio.  It's no secret that teens are my favourite subject - they are just so enthusiastic and are generally unperturbed by adverse condit[...]

  • carole & john

  • I'm so glad I was asked to be a part of Carole and John's special day at The Preston Marriott. They were such an easy couple to bond with. We'd had a great time at the pre-wedding shoot so I knew they'd both be pretty relaxed on the day, but I've never come across a more relaxed bride than Carole. [...]
  • hello world

  • First blog posts can be kinda awkward don’t you think? Trying to set the tone for things to come. I read blogs. A lot of blogs. I’m already a blogger and have been for years. My tastes have changed over that time but one thing remains – I like to feel a connection to the writer. Beautiful photograph[...]
