Blossom …

A quick personal post to end the week before I’m off to second shoot a wedding on Saturday at The Orangery and then to exhibit at Bridgewood Manor wedding fair on Sunday. The majority of my photography is for my clients and I tend to hang up the camera when I’m not working. But last week, in the garden, whilst testing out a new…

We’re going to the zoo {personal}

I often work at the weekends, either for family photoshoots or, more often, weddings. So it’s quite nice to be able to schedule a couple of hours in my diary to go with my family to Howletts. We bought a yearly card … and realised that it runs out at the end of this week! I took my camera too – and wow, is…

It’s a wide world on the world wide web …

It’s always interesting for any blogger to see where their blogs are being read. The search terms are also quite interesting and I must admit that I do get quite a few hits because I share my name with one of the characters in Sex and the City. But I just thought I’d show you the geographical spread of my blog hits over the…

Thank you … no, thank you!

It’s always lovely to keep in contact with my couples after their weddings. And even nicer to receive a thank you card – in today’s society of social media and email, to receive a handwritten note in the post surely brightens up any photographer’s day: From Emma and Luke … And from Kily and Ed … It’s thanks to gorgeous couples like you (and,…

What a difference a day makes … {personal}

Those of you who know me or who follow my blog may know that we have a Tibetan Terrier called Alfie. You may have met him or just heard me talk about what a perfect puppy he is (at 18 months, can we still call him a puppy?). Anyway, today was haircut day. So, of course, I photographed him yesterday … and then just…

A walk by the seaside and a chance for some {time out}

It’s been super busy lately. Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining at all! Taking beautiful and memorable images is part of my daily life and I decided, on this wonderful day full of sunshine, to take some time out … just for me. Alfie, my little Tibetan Terrier (boy has he changed since that picture …) joined me on the beach, just…

Something a little bit different from my “normal” photography … no people!

Well, I guess that’s not strictly true. There were people driving the tractors. Alfie (my Tibetan Terrier) and I went out for an early morning stroll, enjoying this delightful weather that the UK has at the moment – temperatures topping at 28.5 degrees, believe it or not! Anyway, we were walking through some woodland, when we came across the preparations for the East Kent…

I have a new man in my life – meet {Alfie}

For those of you who know me personally, or who follow my updates on Facebook and Twitter, you may have seen that we have a new addition to the household … Alfie is a Tibetan Terrier who was born on 18 December 2010. He is growing by the day and has the hugest feet – good for walking on snow, apparently, as Tibetan Terriers…

{End of Year Accounts}

It’s that time of the year when everyone (apart from the very, very organised) are sorting out their year-end accounts. Unfortunately, I am not one of those very organised people, so I put aside today to start to work on my figures. One of my cats, Gato, decided to come and help … One of the great things that helped me get through the…
