I love every minute of celebrating the magical first moments of a new life, of celebrating you and your family in those raw and real moments of new parenthood.Read More

You've done the internet search, solicited referrals from friends and you have been OVERWHELMED with suggestions, so how do you choose the photographer who is right for you?Read More
Mums, do you remember the feeling of holding your child in your arms for the very first time? Do you remember that overwhelming rush of love (and panic!)? Do you remember the moment your life changed forever?Read 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.
This time last year, I had just quit my job. I had been back from maternity leave for just six months and the combination of working nights and trying to look after two small children during the day had me running close to a burnout.Read More
Every time I pick up my camera, I'm very conscious of the fact that I am capturing precious memories. Memories of you and your children, as you are, right now. And mums, those memories really matter, have a look around your home, through your albums and on your phone, I bet you have lots of photos of your children but how many of your family photos do you appear in?
I hope there are many, because as well as being precious to you, those memories are going to be precious to your children too in years to come. Whether you work, or stay at home, are doing it all on your own or have tons of support, whether there are just two or ten in your family, you are the heart and centre of that very special unit. You are necessary, irreplaceable and very loved by those little people you have made. And as they grow, as well as seeing photos of themselves and remembering happy or fun times, they will want to see photos of you laughing and loving them, just as you do every single day (even the very hard ones!)
I make a point of taking as many photos as I can of each individual parent with their children during our sessions. And what I really want to show is what you see in these few examples on this page here, that the relationship you have with your children is precious, it's unique and the love you have for them knows no bounds.
It's Mother's Day in just over a month's time and in the run up, I'd like to celebrate all of you, wonderful mums out there.
For anyone booking a family session between now and 11th March, I'm offering two free mounted 12"x8" prints of your choice.
I love a newborn session. Tiny babies, heart-melting moments with the proud parents and (if there are siblings around) the sheer unpredictability of how it will all unfold.Read More
