Doing it, together.

When you’re part of a couple you do all sorts of things together.  Movies, walks, sports, breakfast in bed. The list, happily, goes on. We routinely take out our mobile phones and take a quick snapshots. I do it myself. That got me thinking. Why not give these moments a fitting pedestal. After all they…

Atomic Blonde

I’m a nerd, I’ve absolutely no problem confessing that fact. When I find something that is both interesting in plot and visually intriguing, I may obsess. Just a little. The brilliant trailers to the new film, Atomic Blonde has had just that effect. The action, the style of costume, the storyline,  hell even the lighting (yes…

A dish, too tempting.

  Have you ever been to an event and offered food that looks so tempting that you just can’t wait to taste it? I have, it’s a small part of the reason  I love being a food photographer. We’ve all been victim to how amazing something looks on a menu rather than the sound of…

Making movies 

Anyone who has been reading my blog or knows me understands how I feel about the necessity of portraits. How much of a wonderful privilege and luxury they really are.  I honestly see them as your story, immortalised. Such wondrous celebration deserves to have every part of the exuberant experience wrapped in beauty. Hence my gorgeous handmade, bespoke folio…

Prom

The amazing thing about Prom is not how it seems to have crept over from America these last few years but how it has been widely accepted and has become a part of our end of high school rituals. This is an event that I highly advocate. I’ve been able to offer portraits this year,…

Unforgetable

Music, food and Champagne. Always a good way to start a shoot. Especially as we were celebrating. My talented and beautiful client, Jac,  is getting married and her wedding day is fast approaching. As one of my brides, she was given the opportunity to come with those she loved most to have a glamour portrait shoot….

The importance of your existence, in photographs, NOW!

You are here.  If you’re anything like me, you document that. You continuously share images taken on your phone and on any and all social media. It’s evidence. It’s your precious life’s journey. Maybe you focus on your children, your job, this amazing world around you, the food you eat. If you do, I applaud…

There are monsters in the woods…

  There are monsters in the woods. Or so my mother told me… ..Creatures of such fierce nature that they would make you stand and quiver.  But don’t run. Don’t make any sudden moves then you’ll understand a secret. Do you want to know what I uncovered? Do you want to see? Are you brave? I…

Christmas tradition

There is an overwhelming desire that happens to me at Christmas. An almost desperate need to repeat traditions that it is as rampant in the air around me as Wizzard, wishing it could be Christmas every day. But this is not a complaint. I simply adore Christmas with the side trimmings of it’s wacky, family and seasonal…

Colibri

Bespoke, graceful and effortless. Caroline Everett is on a mission to style our little ladies. Sat together at my kitchen table I’m relived at its large size.  Caroline has brought a sumptuous amount of textiles, all tangibly tantalising with rainbow variations of colour and hue. Bold summer flowers, swirling mists of the sea and creatures…

Vintage Flowers

As I walk down Blackfriars street in Hereford I’m actually glad of the small pip’s of rain dotting my shoulders.  I have a bag of goodies loaded on my back that includes my camera, tripod and lights.  It’s not a far walk for me today I’ve cheated and parked around the corner from The Great…

The Philosophy of Cake

Did you know that the word Philosophy literally translates as ‘love of wisdom’. There is certainly a heaped measuring spoon of both of these virtues; in the superior and  delicious cakes that Vic’s Vegan Bakes produces. Despite her young age (only 20!!) Vic has taken her two most passionate, essential beliefs to create cakes that…
