The wonder of Winter Weddings

I’ve never understood why people don’t have more winter weddings. I live in England, and I adore Winter it is by far my favourite season.  It gives you all the opportunity to surround yourself with warmth. In the food you eat, the company you keep and of course in the literal sense of log fires…

Lessons in Love

“I call upon these persons here present to witness…” If you’ve ever been to a wedding in Britain these words will be very familiar to you. With my last wedding of the year approaching this weekend these words are somewhat more weighty. Some of you may know that I studied history (as well as photography,…

What was in the bag?

A few days ago I posted this picture of myself with my mystery bag of goodies on loan from SJP Bridal. If you’ve been following my blog you’ll already have met “Bella” our little 50’s dress with a modern twist. Would it surprise you to know she wasn’t alone?! Yes, the lovely ladies at SJP…

Individual choice

When I present my finished images to a client, I LOVE how we each have different favourites. How one, two or even more images just have that impact on you. Our individual choice. I adore it when a shoot has run on a theme and collaborations have been made and that out of all the hard…

This is the greatest show

I love it when a client comes to me and says I want to do a boudoir shoot on a theme. I’m a bit of a nerd, so as soon as there’s a hint of cosplay, my response is naturally going to be “YES!” Last week The Greatest Showman got a little boudoir makeover. I…

Save the Red Bull, I can give you wings

Sunday morning saw me doing something I hadn’t done for a while. I got my sewing machine out to make a prop! I won’t lie there was definitely a little bit of swearing (F**king bobbins) but when I got going it was relatively easy to make my very own Isis wings. For those you who…

Brinsop Adventure

This week has been full of road trips,  amazing photo-shoots, makeup mania, consultations, and prop shopping. You might think I’m rather worn out, but this photographer is still on an energy buzz from my mid-week meeting. For those of you that might have missed the announcement, I am overjoyed to be the official photographer from…

Long, are the Autumn nights

There’s something about long autumn nights that gets me very nostalgic. I know I’m not the only one. How often do you find yourself happily curling up on the couch? Pulling down a book from the shelves to read through? With me, it’s usually a classic, something I’ve read before. But the call of meeting…

The Other C Word

Has the cold weather turned your thoughts towards Christmas yet? I know, I know, I’ve mentioned the other C word. But if you’re thinking of surprising your other half this year with a folio from your boudoir shoot this is an important post to notice! To guarantee the arrival of your fine art folios (which…

Fashion Inspiration

One of the most popular questions I get asked (regardless of the type of shoot) is “What should I wear?”  I’ve touched on this before for my engagement couples in previous blogs (5 tips for your engagement shoot) but have never addressed the issue on my blog for boudoir.  Every client that comes for a…

Whirlwind

You know, I’ve been feeling like good old Taz from Looney Toons these past few weeks. Spinning round far too quickly and talking utter nonsense when I stop. My reason for the bizarre and random behaviour is the long hours of editing I’ve been in. With Wedding season slowing down, my studio bursting with portraiture…

Pure Studios Showcase

On Saturday 15th September I was very privileged to be with Pure Studios at the courtyard in Hereford; as they took to the stage to entertain the lucky locals. The annual showcase included 60 of the students from Hereford’s Premiere pole dancing and circus skills company on stage. With strong music and choreography from Annie…
