When an ex-firefighter tells you that what she wants most (to celebrate a very special birthday) is for you to capture a photo of her hanging upside down from a tree and chatting to her grandchildren, you just KNOW it’s going to be a fun session.Read More

This sweet baby girl turned one over the weekend and she celebrated with all her family and friends.
She handled the whole party in style, insisting on drinking from a champagne glass, making sure she tried on everyone's hats and smiling and laughing with anyone who picked her up for a cuddle.
She wasn't too sure how to blow out her birthday candles, but she knew exactly who that cake was for... her dad. She decided he needed feeding and she made sure to dig out the very best bits of her beautifully baked, homemade cake for him!
I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Ava about a month before her birthday, in Greenwich, where I photographed her gorgeous family.
She smiled and laughed the whole way through our session (despite not having had a nap that day) and was just as happy and playful on her big birthday. Ava is just pure joy, I wish her and her lovely family all the very best - she has an exciting second year ahead of her!
London is a vibrant, living map of the memories that tell the story of my adult life. As a photographer, I get freeze pieces of those places in time, so I don’t forget parts of my journey. I’d love to do the same for you and your familyRead More

Dads - after countless shoots, I know that for most of you a family photoshoot is not top of your list of things to do, but I just want you to stop for a minute and think about what your children are going to remember about you and their childhood in years to come.
Will they remember the tickle fights, being thrown in the air, the hugs and cuddles over scraped knees, stories at bedtime or the silly impromptu games you always play?
Will they remember the love in your eyes, the feel of your strong arms around them or the feeling that they are flying, perched high up on your shoulders?
Photography is an investment
Memories matter and I firmly believe that family photography is an investment in your future, a tangible record of who you are and where you are, right now.
And dads when you book a photoshoot with me, you don't even have to look at the camera if you don't want to. I just need you to play with your kids, the same way you do every single day - and occasionally wrap your arms around your partner (that awesome person you fell in love with, all those years ago).
To celebrate all those great dads out there in the run up to Father's Day, I am offering a free framed 12"x8" fine art print for anyone booking a family photography session for any time this year, with me, before June 17.
I still have a few sunset sessions available this month and am taking bookings for July right through the summer.
Memories of who you are, where you have been, who you have loved and who you matter the most to, these are treasures which have a value that is immeasurable and that is why family photography is so important to meRead More
It is vitally important to me that you not only love the photos I have taken of your family but also that you have had fun.Read More
It's no secret that I love photographing families, nothing gives me greater joy than capturing the special relationships you have with your children on camera. And this fun-filled winter family session over the weekend was no exception.
Gorgeous, natural family photos - whatever the weather
Whenever I have an outdoor session coming up, I can get a bit obsessive about watching the various weather reports, especially if it's a golden hour shoot just before sunset. But if there is one thing I have learned, it is that you can never really predict exactly what the weather is going to do!
When we arrived at the park there was lots of lovely dramatic cloud cover and a beautiful even light which lends itself beautifully to lovely portraits. We were also lucky enough to have the sun break through the clouds in a gorgeous sunburst, on the horizon just before sunset. Somewhere inbetween we were also treated to a very brief ice-storm where we were pelted with small hailstones, but thankfully that was very shortlived!
Feeling a little camera-shy? Not a problem during my sessions
I had the best time doing this session, this lovely family were up for having a good time - despite the chill! But their lovely little girl was a bit camera-shy. And it can be quite intimidating to have a stranger point a big camera in your face. But this wasn't a problem because we spent a lot of time playing. We threw leaves in the air, jumped over fallen tree trunks, ran, jumped and twirled and, of course, this lovely little lady had lots of snuggles with mum and dad.
Family photography matters
Of course, you don't have to take my word for it, because what really matters is not what I think of the photos, it is what the family thinks. This is what Sam had to say about the session: "Love them!!! Thank you so much! Couldn’t recommend you enough! You have a true talent with a camera and also getting a slightly reluctant 3 yr old and her Dad to engage!!!"
