Alan & Nicola!

When I found out that my beautiful friend Nicola was getting married and she wanted me to capture her special day, I felt honoured and very happy because I love everything about this woman. She’s crazy, with lots of passion and a very positive drive for life. I knew the wedding would be just perfect, with beautiful people and amazing energy. Plus I love Nicola’s rustic, boho style. 

Congratulations Mr and Mrs Grant!

Size 16 and proud!!

I was delighted to be invited by Frock on the High Street to photograph a local mum who is promoting body positivity. Stephanie Redmond shared an image of herself wearing a bright red bikini on social media. She posted the image of her size 16 body to encourage other women of any size to be positive about her body and to wear any clothes they want! Women should be able to dress how they like without the worry of what other people think of them. I am a huge supporter of this and was excited to be part of the shoot. 

For me, body size doesn't matter. What's important is finding a style of clothing that suits you and feel comfortable in, whatever your body shape. Stephanie looked incredible! Whilst selecting what she would wear for the shoot she tried on several outfits that she didn't feel comfortable in... so we kept going until we found the outfits that showed off her figure and she felt like herself in. The results speak for themselves. She looks stunning and completely comfortable. I hope that seeing the images helps women to gain confidence in their own body and encourages them to wear what they like not what society tells them they should wear! 

The article and photographs were published in the Herald Newspaper & Daily Mail

This year I entered Dying Matters photography competition ‘Celebrating Life in the Face of Death’ and to my surprise, I was shortlisted. It is an amazing feeling knowing that this very personal project and a photograph of my granny is helping encourage people to engage with issues surrounding death.

Personal brand photography

My new  client was a very talented third year photography student  Naomi who required portraits of herself to launch her new photographic identity. She wanted the images to represent her as a photographer. Naomi contacted me because she is a fan of my style of work: 

"It has a rustic, quirky and relaxed theme about it, that is charmingly refreshing" - Naomi

 I think this ability comes from the fact that I take time to research the individual or people that I am photographing. I just love photographing people and their passions, talents, skills and characters. 

Please check Naomi work on her new website:

I'm told I'm now an artist...

I've been told that once a photographer sells their first print they can officially be considered an artist! Well, I am pleased to announce I have sold my first print, therefore I am now a fully pledged artist! 

The print was called 'Balance in between' and featured my favourite model, Mila. My daughter. The image was part of an exhibition held at Boston Tea Party, Plymouth. They asked if they could keep the image after the exhibition had ended. I obviously agreed and was over the moon that someone liked the image so much they wanted to buy it. Knowing that someone now has one of my photographs hanging in their house is thrilling!
