Capture Those Precious Moments

As a mum I know that the moments that are the most precious are sometimes not the most obvious. They are not always the high days and holidays, the birthdays, parties, or the family get togethers. Those are all important times to capture and preserve photographically. But equally important are those quiet, close moments when you and your family can just be yourselves and celebrate that special bond between you. That's why I want to preserve those moments before you - so in years ahead, in times of hurried growing, learning and exploring you can remember a time when there was you and your small child enjoying a moment of peace and tranquility.

Beautiful Things for a Beautiful Home

One of my favourite shoots was for The Little Apple Tree in Bollington. The owners are helpful and friendly and the gifts and interiors items on display are gorgeous! Perfect for gifts or to give you or your home a little touch of luxury for the Summer! Items by Jan Constantine, Emma Bridgewater and Cath Kidston are all stocked.

Maternity Shoot

I was honoured to be asked to do a maternity shoot for my friend Jacqui. I went on Tuesday to do a consultation on it, but she looked so good that I took some shots there and then.

She really was blooming and I got some beautiful head and shoulder shots as well as pregnancy ones. We are doing a further shoot next week with different clothes and a bit more bump on show!

Both she and her husband love the shots - I am overjoyed and and I can't wait to meet their new baby!

Breaking the Silence

Sorry, I have suddenly gone very quiet! This is due to a number of factors but mainly due to the hard disk on my laptop packing up - it has takn me a couple of weeks to get it fixed. Also I have been doing a commissioned portrait job - my first paid job - which has taken up most of the last fortnight. It has given me the idea of setting up a photography business so watch this space. I have also been doing some freelancing and have at least made favourable contact with a couple of magazines.

Tomorrow I am doing a consult for a maternity shoot for a friend. We will be doing the actual session on Friday. I am so looking forward to it - in the meantime I have been doing my research and I have stumbled upon the amazing Jennifer Loomis - the creator of outstandingly beautiful fine art maternity photography. Inspiring!
