Studio revamp!

So, it’s getting there…we’re not quite done with it yet. My lovely husband, Craig, and I have set a finish date for the studio revamp. Hopefully, by the end of May will have some beautiful images for you. But in the meantime, I want to talk about printing your images. As Craig and I were…

5 reasons for you to Boudoir

YOU  You are amazing. I want you to know that from the start. You may not believe that, but I defiantly do.  And I want you to have portraits that show just that, in a big way! Boudoir photography is all about empowering people to love their bodies. It doesn’t matter if you think your too…

The art of the tease

There are many props that any burlesque dancer owns and loves. The most iconic may well be the ostrich feather fan. Today, at the studio, I asked my beautiful friend and model Francesca to release her inner dancer and tease us with a little bit of the art of the fan dance. We hope you…

Thin veil

The dark half of the year is upon us and I’m for one am very happy. Halloween for me is much more than dressing up in gory costumes and asking for treats. (although who doesn’t love that part!) It’s a time of reflection and personal learning. The mythology of this time of year is very much…

So when I got the opportunity to see how fine art jewellery was being produced I jumped at it. John Mckellars’ is nestled in the corridor of cobbled lanes of church street,…

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…

Leaving you speechless

I love being in a creative community. A lot of the women I have met through my photography are very much empowered and devoted to their skills and craft. I am very grateful to know writers, musicians, artists, graphic designers, bakers, florists and now an amazing glass artisan. Tucked away in the corner of her…
