Apples about You

I love adding it when something a bit different is added to a wedding, you now that little thing that’s so subtle but stands out beautifully, this was my inspiration behind this styled bridal photoshoot – and I must say everything came together so beautifully.

Inspired by something different, I wanted to create a bridal shoot around apples, it started out as “what could I possible do with apples?” and the idea grew from there.

I had the opportunity to work with some lovely people on this session; beautiful bridal bouquet by Jenny from A Different Colour – Florist who created magic when I told her of my crazy ideas of a bouquet with apples.

I cannot wait for next wedding season to continue capturing all the beautiful moments of love.

New Packaging


I am so excited about my new packaging and I just couldn’t wait to share it 🙂

I chose these boxes as the way I want to present my clients with their beautiful photos after a photoshoot, this decision was very important to me as I want people who book me to be as excited as I am for every step of their photographic experience.

So… When you book a standard photoshoot with me, not only will you receive your allocated session photos, you will receive them beautifully packaged in one of these lovely keepsake boxes with 5 ready to frame 4″x6″ printed photos AND a crystal USB with your fully edited session photos, ready to view and print.

Wishing everyone a lovely Sunday 🙂

Mommy & Me – Claire & Max

Claire had a beautiful Mommy & Me session with her little prince, Max at only 3 months old.

Little Max was super good for his Mommy & Me photoshoot, looking around, fascinated in his surroundings. I was absolutely thrilled to capture these precious memories for  beautiful mommy and her precious one and such a pleasant job working on these photos getting them ready to be treasured.

Mommy and Me photo sessions are a something you will always be able to treasure and share with your family, so remember to capture your precious family moments and book your Mommy & Me or Family session today.

Self Portraits

So a while back I decided to have some fun… I hand painted a new background and just had to test it out ASAP!

Here I used natural light to do a beauty styled photoshoot for myself, there are several challenge that come with self portraiture but I am so happy with how these photos came out. I am also so in love with the backdrop that I brought it with me to the United Kingdom when I moved and now I can wait do use it again.

Lavender Mini-session – Mommy & Me

Mommy and Me sessions, such a beautiful way to celebrate the bond between a mother and her children.

Beautiful mommy, Natasha and her angle Mikaela had their Lavender Mini-session on a perfect sunny day, it truly was picture perfect with such a photogenic pair. I loved every moment, from capturing their love to post production.

The bonds I am blest to witness as a photographer, capturing peoples precious memories will for ever be a honour.

Lavender Mini-Session – Bodenstein Family

I have had the pleasure to photograph the Bodenstein Family for three years, they are such lovely people always happy and ready to try new and fun things, so naturally when they contacted me to book the lavender mini session I was beyond excited to see them again, especially in this crazy beautiful lavender field.

I love seen how a family grows over the years and having the privilege to capture them as they grow each year is such an honour for me.
