A couple of weeks ago I popped over to see an old friend - I'd worked with Lucy about 10 years ago and got a mesage from her on Instagram asking if I'd be interested in capturing her family for an hour or so...Read More
I feel so lucky at the moment, I'm getting to shoot more with more families and friends!

Over a busy weeknd I got to the opportunity to photograph for some very good friends - Sarah has always been Katie's 'sister' so as a result we've all grown to be really close friends - to be asked to capture an occassion as a gift for one of their parents was something I couldn't refuse.Read More
We've had a brilliant and exhausting week off with Thomas which has been action-packed, today we decided to head to Ash End Farm. We've been there a few times before and its always been a great place; this time we met up with our friends Lydia and Ted and we all had a great time. Rather than go on, here's the best bits...Read More
At the end of January I got together with Zoe and Chris to get some shots of them together; Zoe is also a photographer, and so I understand getting pictures of your with your partner can be a nightmare - as you are always holding the camera!
We'd spoken before the end of 2016 about doing a session near them in Birmingham and so planned to make use of 2 loacl parks; we started at Moseley Park before moving onto Cannon Hill Park. Cannon Hill is well known locally as not only is it a large park with plenty to do; it also houses the MAC (Midlands Arts Centre). I'd never visited Moseley Park before but it was beautiful - we also got very lucky with the weather as the 24 hours leading up to our shoot had seen a lot of rain! The sun broke though about 11am and we met up at noon.
After we'd avoided the black swans, a spiders' web and the huge muddy puddles, we strolled back to the car to switch locations and get into Canon Hill. Despite the weather turning really nice, the park was surprisingly quiet - being the main park in Birmingham and with loads for families to do, I was expecting to fight for space for us to use. We took our time around the park and just managed to finish as the skies turned black and the heavens began to open again.
Spending time with Zoe and Chris was brilliant; they are such a friendly couple, who were really excited to get out and find the best locations possible; they welcomed my ideas and got involved by making some suggestions of their own too. The colaboration meant that we got some great shots and hopefully some that they are just as pleased with.
We managed to book a little trip to Paignton and we went last week. I wasn't expecting much from a static caravan holiday, but I was more than pleasantly surprised. We ended up at Beverley Park and I have to say the whole place was brilliant, well run, very clean and it made for a perfect trip (we are already considering booking again for next year!).Read More
Ted is a wonderul little lad and is Thomas' favourite playmate, so we took the chance to tag along and spend a bit of time with them all. Cannock Chase was the backdrop and we had great fun on the walk, we even managed to take the chance to get Thomas in a swing for the first time so even Thomas had the chance to try something new.Read More
