I first met Lorna and Trey when I photographed their little girl at a bediddy event in Chorlton (before they sadly closed their shop - I still miss their cafe and the wall of colourful, vintage clothes and knick knacks that called to me every time I went in). I took a photo of Lorna and Trey’s daughter with her little best friend and remember spotting and appreciating a cheeky little look in both their eyes. This was inbetween covid lockdowns, that never seemed to end and Lorna was pregnant with her second little girl. I saw Lorna and Trey again the following summer. This time in a bit of new ..read more

Top 5 locations for family photo sessions

I’m often asked where I would recommend as a good location for family photo sessions. I think it’s quite a personal choice about where you’d like to have your photos taken. With all my family sessions I want to capture you & your family as you are, no forced poses, nothing awkward, just documenting genuine moments that remind you of a happy time together and which you will keep coming back to again and again. With that in mind, these are my top 5 suggested locations: Your choice - One of the first and most important things I always suggest is to have your photographs taken somewhere you ..read more

Didsbury family photo session

    When Amy phoned me to say that she wanted to do a family photo session before their round the world adventure, but there was only one date that she could do, I wasn’t sure it was going to happen. I’m glad it did though and we managed to squeeze in a morning photo session at Amy’s home before they had to pack up their belongings to head off travelling.  Not just a photo session to capture the family together before travels began, it was also the littlest lady’s first birthday. Amy’s sister and nephew had already travelled up from London, with Grandparents arriving not long a ..read more

Outdoor adventures with children

You might have heard me say this before, but… one of my favourite things is spending time outdoors, in nature. Just a little bit of time in a green space keeps my mood positive and gives me a boost when I need it. Not quite at the level of tree hugging yet, though a good friend of mine did try it and said it was surprisingly comforting. It’s great to see how much my little girl also enjoys being outside - exploring, climbing and generally tiring herself out (another big plus). As she gets older, we’re able to cover greater distances and I’m often on the look out for new places to visit. Here ..read more

Department has been a much welcome addition to Chorlton, turning a once empty and forgotten space into a modern vintage lifestyle store. A few weeks back I met Heather, the creative behind department, and Simion of @relovedupholstery for a photoshoot. The images will be part of an upcoming Christmas feature on department for @reclaimmag, coming out in December. For those of you who haven’t yet visited Department, here’s a little more info about the store and the welcoming lady behind it, along with a few of the images from the day. How would you describe your business? I would describe it as ..read more

Watch out! Womb warming images ahead… You forget how quickly the newborn days pass. They’re literally here and gone in moments (not so, unfortunately, for those weary nights)… But of course, you wouldn’t change it. All those tiny fingers, toes, little jerky movements, warm snuggles, teeny tiny clothes, that baby smell! Unsurprisingly, I loved spending time with Elora and her family, capturing life with their newest addition, just over 2 weeks since he arrived. A morning of happiness, joy and exuberance. Here are just a few images from the morning… P.S. Tap on the images to view ..read more

Conker crew and Our Kids Social outdoor fun!

Perhaps something to do with being a child of the 80’s, and spending a lot of time outdoors, but I am always drawn to nature and green spaces. I think one of the earliest photos of me is in a massive pram, tucked up tightly in blankets, out in the back garden. I used to spend hours with my sisters out in the garden, making mud pies, playing with toys, shuffling about in our ‘Wendy house’ handmade by our dad, or out in ‘the road’ (not the actual road, worry not, but the turning circle in front of our house) with our neighbours and friends, playing blocky, ‘tennis’ and tag, or riding our bikes ..read more
