As some of you will know my first career before photography was producing and directing documentaries and factual  television so when one of my fave programes 'Countryfile' asked me to follow them for a couple of days and capture behind the scenes photographs of their team at work I was thrilled! I still have super fond memories of (the one and only) John Craven having a cuppa in my kitchen before I drove him off to location.  I can still see my (usually very composed) hubby's face as John introduced himself  'Hello I'm John, John Craven' - the hubster just looked wide eyed To View More >>

"We wanted an alternative to the typical 1st birthday photo shoots and wanted honest, true and natural photos of her and us as a family to document the day. . . and the results are stunning. We were slightly nervous about having someone taking photos of us on our little family day out but we need not have worried at all as we hardly noticed she was there really.

A true professional skilled in her line of work" When Vicky messaged me and asked if I'd join them at Ash End house Farm for a birthday day out I leapt at the opportunity!

Can't wait for this pair's big day!  We caught up on one of the crisp winter mornings we've had recently for a wander around Sutton Park and an engagement shoot. I’m often asked what an engagement shoot is and I'd say it's a chance for us to get to know each other better, maybe go for a cuppa, have a giggle and get some fabulous photos to boot! On your actual wedding day, you will be seeing a fair bit of me - dashing around with a couple of cameras, various lenses and possibly a step ladder - so spending some time getting to know each other and practising having a camera following you To View More >>

How lucky have we been with the weather this winter? Amit, Seema and I decided to take advantage of this mild spell and hit Coombe Abbey in Coventry just a week ago for some tea, wedding chat and a little engagement session thrown in for good measure! The sun was low, bright and warm which meant we managed to get rid of our coats and take a wander outside.  If you haven't yet visited Coombe - do! It's a little gem of a place with fabulous grounds to explore. An engagement session is always a good way to do something fun before heading into weeks of planning that naturally comes with weddings!  To View More >>

As we  begin to canter through 2019 I just want to say a massive thank you to all the brides and grooms that have welcomed me into their lives and trusted me to document their weddings in 2018. I’ve had THE best time with your fabulous families and a few firsts this year; a Hindu ceremony, sheep cakes, dogs as flower bearers, kickboxing grooms and jäger bomb dominoes! Plus there’s been the usual things I love about your days; wonderful speeches, many tears, much laughter and a bunch of awesome party people! Here’s a little round up of some of my highlights. I did a To View More >>
