Walls With Love

One of the things I love about running my own business, especially as a Photographer, is being able to support fellow businesses in the local area. Whether it is for Headshots, Corporate Photography or even Product Photography, quality images can really help boost business on social media and business' website. On Monday I was delighted to work with the hugely talented Kate Love, a local artist who paints her artwork onto reclaimed wood. Such a lovely idea, taking something natural and creating something beautiful that is absolutely one of a kind. Kate is currently exhibiting her work at the Blue Anchor in Tadworth, an amazing pub and restaurant by the way (it is our go-to happy place with v

Three words to help you choose the right Photographer

On Wednesday of this week I attended a BIPP course to learn about Marketing a Photography Business. The course was run by the amazing Julia Boggio and the brilliant Anne Derbyshire; Julia is London’s leading Luxury Boutique Portrait Photographer with some amazing accolades and a body of work that is just absolutely stunning, and Anne’s experienced Sales and Marketing Coaching has helped some of the newest and most innovative brands excel. It was very insightful, and they're both absolutely lovely people too! One of the things that I realised is that social media is prolific and an easy way to get your brand noticed, but thinking more deeply, is this the best way for my potential clients to s

A Portrait Experience... the gift they'll cherish for years to come

Is it just me or has this year flown by faster than ever?! All of a sudden it is November, and if you’re organised, you may have started your Christmas shopping already. Each year, I always start out with the intention of giving thoughtful and personal gifts to loved ones, but with everything going on in the run up to Christmas, quite often it ends up being a mad dash at the last minute. And those good intentions fall by the wayside, and memorable gifts turn into another jumper or pair of boots! But the most memorable gifts are not just something to hold, but an experience, quality time with close family and loved ones is often at the top of people’s wishlists. How can we turn that into one

Boxhill Bugs

We're very lucky here in Surrey that we have lots we can do with our little ones. We have a whole array of lovely places around here to help us entertain them, be it parks with adventure playground, a soft play centres, theme parks, local farms and play trails. And then there are the organised toddler groups, drop-in playgroups, and a huge array of classes from classical music to art to street dance. With 2 boys, my eldest now 5, i've been lucky enough to try most of the classes on offer. But there's one group that's head and shoulders above the rest, and is teaching our youngest son some wonderful life skills too. And that's Boxhill Bugs. We discovered Boxhill Bugs just over a year ago. The

The Golden Hour... on location in Oxfordshire

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of working with the gorgeous Leith family at their home in Oxfordshire. Karen and her three children are old family friends of ours, and it is wonderful to see how the children have grown into such lovely, caring young people. They were a real joy to photograph, and as I think you’ll agree, pretty photogenic too! The session was split into indoors and outdoors, and during our pre-session consultation over Skype, Karen filled me in on their characters and we planned different posing options in order for their personalities to shine through. Then we headed outdoors for some fun in the woods, just in time for ‘Golden Hour’, the last hour or so before sunset wh
