‘A family session in Colorado?!’ you’re thinking. ‘But you’re from the UK!’ you’re thinking. Well yes, you’d be correct! You can imagine how excited I was not just to visit a state I’ve always wanted to go to, but to also be able to photograph one of my friend’s oldest friends, Maritta, and her beautiful family down at Cherry Creek in Colorado!Read More
So, if you’re a keen follower here, you might remember that this year for Mother’s Day I decided to hold beachy mini sessions down at Cudmore Grove in Mersea to celebrate our wonderful mothers or mother-figures.
Well, they were so successful that I’ve decided to run Father’s Day Mini Sessions too, so get excited!Read More
Our parents deserve to be celebrated don’t they? Luckily, there’s two occasions every year where we can celebrate everything they do for us, those being Mother’s Day and Father’s Day!
This year, to celebrate Mother’s Day, I’m offering mini sessions! I know how difficult it can be to round up all of the family for a lifestyle session, but mini sessions are just a quarter of the length of my usual lifestyle sessions, at just 30 minutes long, and these ones are for a very special price, too!Read More
This might just be the biggest family I have photographed in one go!
When my friend (and amazing photographer!) Emily asked me to take her family portraits, I was so over the moon! It is always such a privilege when another creative (especially a photographer!) asks you to take photos with them, and this would be a lovely session to take some more for the family album.Read More
This extended family session was truly special, and let me give you a bit of background as to why…
Laurel Beth first got in touch with me when I was shooting a wedding in December, and her enquiry was just so sweet that during my meal break I had to reply! She told me that she and husband Ryan had moved to the UK back in spring last year for work, and that this was meant to be their first family Christmas apart. Having experienced having long distance family and relationships myself, I totally knew how she felt. However, as I read on, I was so overjoyed to hear that her family had planned to fly from Tennessee to the UK to spend Christmas all together - how precious is that?!Read More
I first met Jo (also a wonderful family photographer!) through one of my Gold Dust Project participants, Lorna. After photographing Lorna with her little ones at her home (and spending a little too much time chatting at the end!), just as I was leaving, Lorna’s good friend Jo turned up for a catch up with her. I never expected that a few months down the line, Jo and husband Stephen would be looking for family photos. It is always a HUGE compliment when another photographer wants to book in with me!Read More
After heading to take a few photos with Joe and Emily’s grandmother at her home, we all drove a short distance to Donyland Woods on a chilly but sunny November morning, somewhere that Joe and Emily spent many hours exploring as kids with their parents and grandparents. I am always happy to suggest photo locations but more often than not, it’s lovely when you take the lead because it lets us make memories in a place which is probably already packed full to the brim of memories from years gone past!Read More
So, here's a funny story... I used to actually go to school with Emily-May, who booked this family session with me to celebrate her mum's birthday... But I hadn't seen Emily in almost ten years! It was so surreal to catch up with her and meet the rest of her family, and what a fun session this was!
