Beautiful Lila

I recently had the fun job of photographing my friend Hannah’s little girl, Lila. We went to Bellevue Park in Newport and made the most of the glorious spring weather. My daughter Posy couldn’t resist joining in to play with her pal! Shoots like these are my favourite. The more natural and the more fun…

Film is Not Dead

Nowadays we take for granted the ability to take numerous images with our digital cameras until we are happy, so I really love to challenge myself from time to time by getting out my film camera and really taking my time over the composition. When you know that every frame counts as it can’t be…

Posy

You may have noticed that there’s a fairly big gap in the dates of my blog posts… That is partly because I have moved all of my wedding work to When Charlie Met Hannah, but mainly because of this little lady- Posy was born in September and I have been enjoying every moment of my maternity leave! But now…

On My Doorstep

Since being on maternity leave I have spent a huge amount of time at Bellevue Park which is practically on my doorstep here in Newport. Now that Spring is here I have been stunned by all the beautiful colours in the park and had to stop, take a moment and capture them.

A Picnic at the Park

Photographers spend most of their lives behind the camera and are rarely in the shot themselves, so I was thrilled recently to be able to photograph my good friend Hannah Richards Photography and her beautiful family at Tredegar Park in Newport. Hannah and her family are regularly at the park so it was the perfect…

May & Alice at Bath City Farm

Those of you that follow me on facebook and instagram may have already seen my “Sad Ballerina” image of the beautiful Alice taken back in January (right).I recently met up with Alice again, this time with her twin sister May and their mum and dad. We spent the afternoon at Bath City Farm which is…

Family Session: At Home with The Vines

A couple of weeks ago I had the absolute JOY of photographing my cousin’s family: Jade, Sean, the beautiful, clever and very funny Sophie and gorgeous newborn baby Jasper. After taking a few minutes (really, it wasn’t long!) to warm up to having her picture taken Sophie became the star model and insisted on having…

Band Session: Psycho Kiss at the Beach

I was asked by South Wales rock band Psycho Kiss to photograph them ahead of the announcement of their new line up. I met with Helen, Paul, Penfold and new band members Pete & Tom in Neath and we headed down to Aberafan Beach (where Hurricane Barney did his best to blow us away!) and then…

Family Evans

I met up with my good pals Kate & Chris and their two gorgeous boys Seth & Finley at their house. The boys proudly showed me their toys, their trampoline, some magic tricks, got right up close to the camera and just had some fun! We then headed down to Roath Park and I photographed…

Inspired by an Icon

For my final photography project for my latest course with Ffotogallery we were encouraged to look at other famous photographers and use their work to influence our own. Although imitating another photographer’s work is not something I would normally do (or encourage), in this case as a student I chose to emulate a photographer that…
