Dotty Day for Dorothy House

I took a few photos in honour of DottyDay for Dorothy House who provide care & support to patients, families and carers #whenitmattersmost

DottyDay is super special because it falls on an extra day this year and we want to use it to make a huge difference and do something special to help those with life-limiting illness, their families and carers.

By wearing dots and making a text donation or doing a sponsored challenge, you can help us celebrate the 40 years of care we have given and help provide 40 years more.

Oh my poor neglected blog

There has been quite a lot going on over the last few months, and i have to admit I just haven’t gotten around to updating this blog as much as i would of liked, though i guess it’s better to be busy than bored.
I really do promise to try harder next year.

In the meantime here is a photograph of my daughter getting into character as Mary for the school nativity, as you can see she took it very seriously.

Open Studio – Sat 17th November

I’m thinking of opening up my studio on Sat 17th November for mini shoots.

I thought it might be fun to do some mini shoots where you pay £5 to book a 20 min slot and then you get that £5 back when you order prints or high res printable images afterwards.

And here are some photographs from my mini shoot with my girls, this shoot was probably about 4 minutes in total, they really wouldn’t sit still for any longer, they were desperate to get back to some elaborate game of pirates and ponies.

But then a lot of the time 4 minutes is all i need.

Contact me if you’re interested and i’ll send you a flyer with my ‘reduced rate’ prices for this session.


Simple Black and White

I always forget how wonderful a simple black and white shot is.

I get caught up in the beauty of colour, because there is so much you can do with colour, you can go from one extreme to the other by making the colours pop with over saturation or you can go to the other extreme of muting all the colours so they look all lovely and vintage-y.

And then i go and rediscover how simple and striking and wonderful black and white is, how elegant and timeless they are, i mean look at her skin how flawless it looks (even though it really wasn’t!)

I shot these yesterday with black and white in mind just cos i could, and i love them.
