I love photographing families in places that are special to them – whenever they look at their images I hope they remember all the different adventures they’ve had there. This family photoshoot was in a woods where they like to go for walks and we found a beautiful patch of bluebells which were just magical!

We all wish Summer could last forever – endless days of paddling pools, sticky ice-creams and blowing bubbles in the back garden. It’s a feeling I’d like to bottle up for the colder months. Sunny evenings create gorgeous Summer portraits and it’s my favourite time of day. I don’t often get to choose the perfect … Read More
