What happens after?

“Oh, they say when you marry in June. You’re a bride all your life.”  I do love that song (June Bride, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers if your wondering).  Perhaps it comes from the fact the Juno, the Roman goddess whom the month is named after, is the goddess for marriage.  However, it doesn’t matter…

The hidden link

Many of my female clients come for boudoir photography as a surprise present for their partners. Most ladies want to include an item that reminds them of their loved one. The classic choice is a favourite shirt whether that is a football shirt or a long white one that they may wear to work. Others…

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….

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
