Christmas Portraits

I saw a lovely family last weekend who wanted some portraits doing as a Christmas surprise. Louise, Daisy & Jasper were perfect hosts at their gorgeous house near Stockton Heath. They were full of excitement for Christmas not to mention very photogenic. Here are some of the pictures from the day.

Portrait Sessions

Why not book a portrait session for Christmas? Sessions are an hour long and I specialise in children, babies, couples, families and even maternity sessions. The sessions take place in the comfort of your own home, especially ideal for children and babies, or outside on location. Don't miss the opportunity to capture special moments, when you can have them photographed to cherish forever. I offer various lifestyle mediums to display your pictures including canvas, acrylic, box frames and regular prints.
I have a special offer available until April 2009. When you book your portrait session, you will receive a complimentary 10 x 8 print worth £25.00, making the sitting fee a very affordable £25.00. So don't delay, book today on 0161 660 2746.

Studio Shoot - Update

Today I did a studio shoot with a friend of mine - a bit of fun to avoid the cold outside. We had two beautiful models who were great fun to work with. These are a few of my favourites.

Family Shoot

Yesterday I had a family portrait shoot up on the West Pennine Moors. The whole family were lovely and the kids were so much fun to work with - obsessed with bikes and scooters :) Here's my favourites.

Winter Blues

Well as the clocks go back and Christmas approaches, photographers don't have as much natural light to play with. I like to get creative inside in the Winter and so November sees a collaboration with a friend of mine who is also a photographer. We have a studio and 2 models booked for a portfolio session. I can't wait to get stuck in and see the results. Watch this space...

Model Husband

What a beautiful day today so we took the opportunity to go for a walk up Rivington. Of course I took the camera with me and got some shots of Andy, my husband.

So what is Fine Art Photography?

A lot of people ask me what fine art photography is. Well it's about capturing a vision. As a passionate photographer I am constantly thinking about how I want my shots to look and I'm very determined that my work always looks fresh and different from someone else who churns out the same thing over and over again. It's these visions that inspire me and help me direct my Brides and Grooms into the shots that you see on the site. The daddy of fine art photography is Joe Buissink. He's based in Beverly Hills and photographs a lot of celebrity weddings. As you can see from his shots, they emulate style and really capture the moment - in fact it's a cheese free zone. Hey, if it's good enough for the celebs...

Thomas's Christening

I photographed the Christening of Thomas yesterday. Bless him he was feeling a little under the weather to start with but he soon perked up after the ceremony. Here are a few of my favourites.

My Beautiful Mum

My mum asked me to take some pictures of her as a present for my dad's Birthday. We had a great time - my mum loves dressing up and I think you'll agree, she looks absolutely fabulous for 63!


Media City UK Launch

Last night the husband & I attended the launch of Media City at the Pie Factory in Salford Quays. We had a geat evening with comedy from John Bishop, music from Clint Boon and fabulous canapes from Zeus Canapes. We met lots of really interesting people, all involved with media in one form or another and it's so exciting that this whole project has come to Manchester. It will really put us on the map for New Media. Bring it on!

Great John Street Hotel, Manchester

Last week I got to photograph the Great John Street hotel for a client. The rooms are just gorgeous and you would never know it was there as it's hidden down a small street near Granada Studios. The building used to be a school and they have managed to keep so much of the original character.

Bolton Wedding Show

Come and meet me at the Bolton Wedding Show on Sunday 26th October 2008 at the Last Drop Village, Bromely Cross. I look forward to seeing you there :)



Welcome friends to my spangly new web site! Earlier this year I was looking to expand with weddings and portraits so it was only right that this special work had a dedicated web site. After being loved up myself and getting married in April I wanted to work with more brides and grooms. So how do you like the new site?
