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

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 […]

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 […]

Falconry Day – Photography Experience

So what do you buy a photographer for Christmas?  New lenses (not exactly as these are too expensive).  This dilemma is faced every year by my children and husband.  They have now decided that anything photography related is a no go!   That’s so sad for me as I love getting photographic experiences, even though […]

Lifestyle Maternity Shoot

Being pregnant is a joyous occasion and I can honestly say as a mum of two children (now grown up) I enjoyed my pregnancies with both of them.  Mind you I did have it easy, no morning sickness at all, in fact no sickness whatsoever so I was very lucky in that respect.  I craved […]

Ann & Mary – Equine Photoshoot

Last summer I had the privilege of meeting Ann and her horse called Mary.   To cut a long story short, Ann was a mental health nurse who was retiring so her friends all got together and purchased a gift voucher entitling Ann to have a photoshoot with her horse.    So when the voucher […]

Finn, Maggie & Polo

Last year I was commissioned by Alan & Kristina to take some photos of Finn, Polo & Maggie.  It was a great session.  Kristina really wanted to recreate a photo her mum had had taken some thirty years prior with her then horse and dog.  As you can see the weather was kind but the […]

Baby Delilah

Say hello to little baby Delilah who had her newborn photoshoot with me last summer!  Gosh a whole year ago aww bless, it really does only seem like 5 minutes ago.   Delilah’s session was quite special as I was having my newborn photography refresher course with my wonderful newborn photography Mentor, Laura.  I had […]

Maddie’s Dog Photoshoot

Say hello to Maddie, she’s a rising three year old black Labrador and one of the daughter’s of one of my client’s dog, Maggie.  In fact she’s the double of her just she’s a little finer built as she is still young!  When we did this photoshoot Maddie was almost two years old so still […]
