Save the Red Bull, I can give you wings

Sunday morning saw me doing something I hadn’t done for a while. I got my sewing machine out to make a prop! I won’t lie there was definitely a little bit of swearing (F**king bobbins) but when I got going it was relatively easy to make my very own Isis wings. For those you who…

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…

A Bridesmaids duty.

Having been to a few weddings I would like to give a little helpful advice to those lucky ladies chosen to be a bridesmaid. Girls, you have been chosen by the bride because you represent either the family members or the best friends that the bride CAN NOT DO THIS WITHOUT. I put this statement in…

The Bridal Emergency Kit

To ensure you remain flawless on your wedding day you may like to consider a little Bridal emergency kit.  I have to admit I was not this organised at my wedding, but luckily my auntie thinks along these lines! Having thought about what a modern bride might like to pop in her emergency kit here are…

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…

5 tips for your engagement shoot

When clients come to me for an engagement shoot they often want to mark the importance of the event with more than just selfies and iPhone images. It can be a wonderful time to document the spark of the wedding rather than having it overshadowed by all the preparations. Naturally, I get asked many questions from what…

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…

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…
