You’re Part Of The Team…

Enquiries come to my studio via email, social media and sometimes by phone.  The first question I get asked is how much?  Once we get over this hurdle and I’ve gone through the price structure, we get to the fun part!  Do you have any creative ideas of your own?

The bluebells are on the way…

WHAT AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE… The photos are phenomenal.  We can’t thank you enough for capturing the kids personalities so well.  Would do it every year, but we would need more wall space. A very happy Mum & Dad from last years bluebell sessions. The Bluebell Mini Session Is Here… £45

Electric (Harp) Ladyland…

I love a challenge… Anita Aslin teaches, performs and plays with orchestras and can be regularly seen tootling around the area in her van heading to a wedding venue with her harp (or Chordophone, thanks Google) on-board.  I have photographed Anita with her classical hat on, but now in addition

Childhood is the Shortest Season

Childhood is the shortest season, I can confirm this to be true.  I know when you’re living it day to day and feel that you are constantly checking them, it’s hard to imagine your little one’s ever growing up. For me the school runs, turned into college runs, which then
