Evergreen Love

When you live in the city but you don’t want to have an urban engagement shoot what do you do? Find somewhere green, bold and utterly beautiful. Where else but Kew Gardens. The Botanical gardens are steeped in history and fascination. Their bold but fragile nature lends the landscape and charm to the impulse of romance….

The Lost Wedding

My wedding day was a definitely one of the most beautiful days in my life. My husband and I have so many memories of that day that make us smile. But, that’s all we have. Memories. The year we were married our home suffered, like so many others in the UK, from the torrential rain that flooded half…

My Vampire Boyfriend

Working with other artists is always thrilling. Working with another artist who is also a friend is simply sublime. Catherine Green is one of the freshest talents when it comes to her genre. The British writer has injected all her passion and curiosity into her paranormal romance series The Redcliffe Series. I will happily admit to being an…

The little black dress

It’s one of the most iconic and simple items of clothing any woman owns. We all have that one little dress that we know we look amazing in. As part of my boudoir portraits, I offer what I call, The Little Black Dress shoot. This allows ladies to experience beautiful portraits of without feeling too self-conscious…

Documentary of Family life

My family is crazy. I believe every family thinks that mainly because I also believe it’s true. Each family has their own way of sharing and exploring this life. All the little things that we do for one another, that make us smile, laugh and make us proud to be with each other.  My family is…

She doesn’t want chocolates

There is nothing wrong with receiving burgeoning blossoms, cascades of chocolates, or a flotilla of perfume for Valentines. But come on boys and girls. It’s a little boring. Why not do something a little more saucy this year. Come and experience a boudoir shoot. Most people would rather die than sit in their best undies in a studio…

Drink Hail!

At the darkest time of year, there is one sure way to get people to leave their homes and scurry out into the night. The annual Wassailing. For those unsure of what on earth I’m prattling on about. Wassailing is a medieval ritual. It involves drinking copious amounts hot mulled cider (a wassail), carrying flaming…

Seasonal Slow down

I’ve always liked the winter. The crisp skies, the tender crunch of frosty grass underfoot, the warmth of the home filled with family and friends.  Its poetry can go on and on. However, it is a rare treat that we get a decent amount of snowfall. This week, I was delighted to open the curtains…

I love a good romance

When someone asks me about my job and I reply “I’m a photographer” people always say something along the line of “Oh, cool. Weddings and stuff.” They’re not wrong. I do take beautiful images of peoples weddings. But I like to think it’s a little more than that. Photographers are calling themselves artists these days rather…

I dare to bare

Boudoir. It can be the one word that fills women either fear or curiosity. I’ve been creating boudoir portraits for men (yes, that does happen) and women for years and the misconceptions of what it actually is or means are vast. Many people see boudoir as a little harmless thrill. Something naughty to excite one’s…

Seven Day Challenge

So, Facebook sometimes has its uses. This time it has made me join in on a seven-day challenge. The rules were: “Posting a black and white photo each day for 7 days.  Photos of my life, no people, no words, no comments” This was my kind of fun, perhaps you joined in yourself? I definitely added…
