Angel of dawn

“I lift my head at the noiseless tread of the angel of dawn.” Last weekend I was restless. I know when I get like this the best thing for me to do is grab my camera and head out the door. Walk it off. The timing of the restlessness may make a few of you…

Summer Tease

We’ve had a lovely taste of fine weather this week, and although we’re now back to my favorite weather (yes, I do love the rain) the sun did make me feel nostalgic for the summer weddings. Having a good old look back through my work I thought I’d share some of Pete and Anna’s wedding…

Indulge your curiosity

  Have you been wondering what a boudoir shoot would be like? Many of my clients are unsure what to expect when they book their consultation with me. What they all seem to find is a very friendly, short and enthusiastic woman who, with the generous slice of homemade cake, puts them at ease and explains what…

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….

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…

The power of Portraits

Something happened to me this week that I want to share with you. I was at a shoot where my client was super nervous. She wasn’t sure about how she would look on camera as (like most women these days) she was concerned about her body image. Our concept for the shoot was based on…

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…

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…
