LATEST NEWS

Welcome to the blog! Written as regularly as I am able to between shoots, editing, meeting clients, being a taxi driver, chef and housemaid to my kids.  It’s jam packed not only with insights into client sessions but locations, lovely people I’ve met, local businesses, food and fashion.  Basically, anything which inspires me and I hope it inspires you too.

And if there’s something you’d particularly like me to include feel free to contact me or add a comment in the blog.  I’d love to hear what you think!
