Evie Grace

Evie Grace is just a little over three months old, still quite small and with a great head of hair. Her Mum and Dad brought her in to get some photos before she starts growing properly and changes day by day.





Family Pregnancy Portrait

Just to prove it’s not all about artistic nudes and bare bumps and whatnot, I asked a friend if she’d like some photos with her children – just before giving birth to the latest addition to the family. Of course the idea was to get the bump in there too, but with his little sisters in shot as well. I’m sure this will not be the last time the little chap is fussed over and prodded by his older siblings.

Daisy’s Model Portfolio

I photographed Daisy’s Mum’s wedding last December, so it was good to see her and stepdad Andrew again last week, for a shoot in the studio – the aim being some basic portfolio shots before signing up with modelling/acting agencies.

You can get all clever with lighting (and I tried, they were here for hours) but sometimes a simply-lit face-front shot can stand out. I felt this was a strong image even on the titchy screen on the back of my camera.

I’m supposed to notice details, but I have to admit I didn’t realise Daisy’s earrings were different colours, and that they were…daisies!

Mother and Baby

Thank you to Lisa, Richard and Libby who came all the way across the Pennines this week especially for their portrait session, staying over in Windermere the night before to make sure Libby got a good night’s sleep. This is a quiet moment but I could tell that Libby will be an active sort once she gets on her feet!

A special pet portrait

A few months ago, the quiet road where I live got a little bit quieter. Murphy had succeeded in being a puppy for almost fifteen years, but age catches us all sooner or later. He still wanted to play – the toy in the picture below was only brought out at the last minute in case he chased it all around the studio. He was the sort of dog that nobody could dislike. A bit daft, but always fun.

Dog Gone

Never let it be said that I can’t make people relax in my studio. Well, animals anyway. After giving Lyric the golden retriever a little while to sniff around and suss the place out, she promptly lay down and dozed off, presumably not realising that she was in fact the centre of attention.

Now what is it they say about sleeping dogs….?


Say What?

Say What?

This is Ellie. Eight stones of solid muscle. An American Bulldog, apparently. She has a lovely temperament. No, really, she does, but even if she didn’t, who would I be to argue?

I did a portrait session for Ellie and her devoted owners last week. Good job I like dogs really, but they’re actually easier than kids. Kids can pull faces or refuse to look cute. Dogs can’t. End of.
