Carrie and Tom – Engagement Portraits

February 22, 2009

I’ve had a great day with Carrie and Tom today, discussing their wedding in May and also shooting some engagement portraits for them.

We walked all over their village Burwell having lots of fun, it’s quite obvious for all to see the love between these guys and the easy humor between them

You guys were totally awesome, thank you for letting me have so much fun with my camera, I can’t wait for May!

Twig Social Network Logo

February 19, 2009

I am really excited, as one of the founders of a new Cambridge Network, Twig, I got to indulge my passion and play with my camera, this is the picture chosen for the Twig logo.

So what is Twig I hear you ask?

Twig has been launched because of the enormous surge in businesses using social media networking tools (think Twitter, blogging, video blogging and ‘traditional’ online networks such as Facebook), and the conundrums and possibilities that these present.

The rules of engagement are definitely changing: we want to learn more about them, and we don’t want Cambridge to be left behind.

Put simply, Twig wants to look at two questions – who are you trying to talk to, and how are you doing so?

But we’re also intensely curious about the value of these tools, the merging of offline and online communication, and perhaps most importantly how all of this is being applied to the different people that we need to talk to – clients, competitors, suppliers, investors, employees, analysts, and so on.

This network is not just for entrepreneurs. It’s also for directors, managers, thinkers and perhaps even the odd oddball, who are all looking to change how they as individuals or businesses communicate to their network and grasp the opportunities that are now out there.

Spring is here – well almost!!

A lunch time stroll in the sunshine (yes that said sunshine, hard to believe I know) and look what I found!  

Snowdrops! Aptly named you could say after all the recent challenging white weather!

What they do mean is that we are on the home straight everyone, not long and it won’t feel like we are living in the artic! (Although I have to say I will miss playing in the snow!)

Edward and Esmee

Esmee came up to see us today, so Edward popped in to say Hi! There are some real coincidences between these two and two seems to be a significant number for them. Both their mums are called Jen, Esmee was due two weeks before Edward, however she was two weeks late and Edward two weeks early so hey presto he arrived first!

Anyway they try and catch up and compare notes with each other whenever they can, and today we discovered they have both found their voices! If only we could understand what on earth they were saying to each other!

Edward has the coolest shoe collection, these little gems even rattle when he moves his feet, much to everyones’ amusement! So cute I want to trade my stripy socks for some!

Adam – Jan 09

February 15, 2009

img_54091 Just over a week ago I had the absolute delight of spending time with Rachel and her new baby, Adam. Daddy Andy was at work, but don’t worry we will be getting all of them together soon at their new house for some family pictures! 

So whilst the snow came down outside, we stayed nice and warm inside and Adam performed like a true professional  whilst we took lots of pictures (Mummy thinks he has a future in modelling!!).  These are two of my favourite from the session.

London

A weekend in London doing nothing but taking photos allowed me to capture these.

It was a challenging weekend as for once I was photographing buildings, using new techniques and creative perspectives. I came home absolutely knackered but really exhilarated by all that I had learnt and as always excited to download the results.  

The photos in the this post are my favourites from the weekend.
