Emma and James Engagement Session

April 20, 2009

In complete contrast to Thursdays wedding, the sun was out brightly on Saturday for Emma and James’ engagement photos.

We made the best use of the fine weather and took Megan, Charlie and Dexter the dog to the park in Ely. What an amazing park area for kids, they could lose hours in there! (I could have lost hours there, all the play equipment was big enough for the big kids too!)

Emma and James are getting married in August and I am really excited to be shooting their wedding. It promises to be a really close intimate family day.

Here are some of my favourites from the weekend:

First Megan in action


And Charlie, eyes full of mischief


Not forgetting Dexter


And finally, but by no means least, Emma and James

Some high key love


Bright green grass


and finally just somewhere far away



Easter Bunny – Esmee Rose

April 13, 2009

Happy Easter!

I can’t resist sharing a very happy little Easter Bunny with you!


Esmee loves wearing hats and thinks they are very funny as you can see from the photos in this post! She is also rather partial to the paper and a good story!


Grandad – This one is for you! (Remind you of Frank Spencer too?)


Her favourite book, ok a Christmas one at Easter, but it’s a cool pop up book so I don’t blame her.


Deeply engrossed in the News of the world – at her age I am sure it’s all very interesting


And just too cute!



Wedding Photography – Capturing the details

April 7, 2009

I am often asked about my style of photography, so I thought I would share some of my thoughts on capturing your special day, why I work that way and because I just can’t bring myself to post without pictures include some more of my favourites.

Looking at my Mum’s wedding photos, as I have many many times, there are no details from the day, well in the early 70’s they didn’t do that kind of thing, it was just the formal shots of the bride, groom and guests, 25 pictures, done! So it always feels as if there is a chapter or two missing.

Fast forward to my wedding a short while ago and I have an album that tells the whole story of the day from start to finish. Already when we look at it we see things that aren’t so fresh in our minds (not the most important bits I hasten to add, but the little details that made the day so special, but that got lost in the blur of the day, when you are the bride the day goes so quick!) and the photos give our ailing memories a gentle reminder, evoking lots of wonderful memories and huge smiles. I know how much planning went into all those details, how long it took to find the perfect ribbon or stationary, the perfect shoes and flowers, so it’s important that all the details are recorded.

I look to simply capture all the details so that my brides will have complete stories. They can then relive the whole day through their wedding album, anytime they like for the rest of their days, nothing forgotten. And in 40 years time, well it will feel just like yesterday.

So without further fuss here are my favourites:







Jules – Anytime portraits

March 24, 2009

At the weekend I had a couple of friends to stay for a girlie catch up. We all worked together years ago,  more years ago than I think any of us would like to count!

I can’t resist having my camera out, as you all know by now, and Jules has been a willing model on more than one occasion. In fact when I got my first DSLR a few years ago, Jules was dragged out so I could play!  Thank you Jules, you are a little star in front of my camera always!

What you need to know about Jules is that she is a petite bundle of mischief and those who know her can always tell by her eyes when she’s about to be mischievous!

My favourite photo from the weekend sums her up to a ‘T’. It’s all in those eyes of hers!


Jules this one makes me smile everytime I see it! THANK YOU!!


Vicki, Paul and Alfie – relaxed portraits

March 16, 2009

On Saturday I spent a glorious sunny spring morning with Vicki, Paul and Alfie at Church Farm in Norfolk. We were joined by their friends, Simone, Ebony and Esmai. Church farm is a great place at anytime of year, but right now they have lots of baby farm animals including; lambs and calves, oh and mustn’t forget to mention the most enormous rabbits I have EVER seen!  Alfie and I reckon one of them is as big as he is!!

It’s also packed with lots of fun things for the kids to do, including tractors, trampolines and their new indoor play area, with climbing walls and slides galore, every child’s heaven.

Alfie and Ebony had a field day flitting from one exciting play area to another and it was hard work keeping up with them.

Here are some of my favourites from the day:



Anthea – Anytime Portraits

March 11, 2009

Despite the exceptional windy weather conditions, I had lots of fun on Saturday shooting some portraits of Anthea in Saffron Walden, we tried lots of new things and had great fun in the park!

Thank you Anthea for playing along with some of my hair brained ideas it was a blast!

This is my favourite from the session:



Corporate Portraits – Alice

March 9, 2009

I love it when companies have fun with their corporate portraits, throwing away the traditional against the office wall, sat at the desk pretending to work type photos and letting their true personalities shine through.

These relaxed and fun portraits are so much more appealing for customers and suppliers and they enable people to connect with the real person and the business.

So as you can imagine I am really excited to be working with Engauge at the moment on building a portfolio of fun portraits  that reflect not only the personalities of the individuals but also the organisation, as a fresh, fun and exciting company to work with.

On Friday Alice and I went out and about near the office, in the fantastic spring sunshine.

Alice is not keen on having her photo taken,  but this didn’t prevent us from getting great shots, and this was one occassion where the giggles really were a bonus!  

Here are some of my favourites:
