Self-Employment and Getting Away -to Avoid Burn Out

Being self-employed is firstly something I love and I’m not sure I could ever work for someone again. Why? simple, I get to do everything I love and the satisfaction that I’ve done it for me and of course my fabulous clients plus I get to travel to new places and have lots of cool […]

Dog’s beginning with A

Continuing with dog breeds I’ve photographed over the last couple of years, I had the pleasure of photographing two gorgeous Airedale’s, which lets face it, are big teddies.   With their tight curls and square beards, they are beautiful terriers and it might just surprise you that their coat is very soft!

Dog’s beginning with A

Hello, been a few weeks since the last blog.  As summer is here and it’s very hot outside, it’s a little too warm for dog photoshoots after 11.00am and not before 6.00pm, so I’ve been coming up with some new ideas which I hope to announce later on this week. In the meantime, I thought […]

Engagement Shoot – Bradgate Park

I love Bradgate Park in Leicestershire for many reasons. Aside from it being the ancestral home of Lady Jane Grey (The Nine Day Queen), it boasts from beautiful views across the valley which are steeped in history, beauty and wildlife.  Anyone who knows me, knows how I love history especially the Tudor/Stuart era, so this […]

Snowdon – A Walk he Says, No problem!

So last May, I went away for a long weekend with Barry (the husband) to Wales.  We stayed at a local campsite within the Snowdonia National Park in a teeny village called Betws Garmon and the campsite is called Bryn Gloch. It’s a beautiful campsite with lovely views of Snowdonia and runs alongside the banks of River […]

As a photographer I love receiving kind words from clients and such like.  It makes me feel happy and very proud not just in myself but for the client’s I have the great honour in working with.   Photography is not the easiest of jobs to do but it is highly rewarding. To receive kind […]

My Travels to Albufeira, Portugal

It’s been a few weeks since my last blog post and as much as I love to write about my photography work, I also love to share my travels.  So last year, it was my sister-in-laws 40th birthday and to make the birthday a nice one to remember, a trip to Portugal was booked.   […]

Lola – Dog Photoshoot

Last spring (seems so far away ago given this year’s weather so far), I met with Lola the Boxer dog for her dog portrait photography session.  We met up in the village of Ticknall in South Derbyshire. Lola is a very special dog as she belonged to a lovely young man called Aaron arriving at […]

Kind Words

I love photographing weddings. I get excited and nervous all at the same time. One thing that does make me feel good and love my job even more is making couples happy. To receive thank you cards is just lovely. Not only that receiving messages of thanks be it via Facebook, texts, emails and personal […]

A Day out at Mach Loop – Wales

I’m not really a plane enthusiast when it comes to fast Jets whizzing around the sky above me but when a friend of mine who loves aviation, said come along for a day – see what you think!  So I did just that.  Don’t get me wrong, planes are interesting but it’s certainly not a […]
