Newborn photography at home

I love taking pics with natural light of tiny babies, it’s just so soft and natural. Welcome to the world little ‘India’ she was so chilled having her pictures taken I think it helped that mum and dad were pretty relaxed. I am looking forward to taking pictures of her as she grows bigger…

National Animal Welfare Trust – 2018 Calendar

Years ago we used to have rescue dog, her name was ‘Zena’ (her name at the rescue I didn’t have the heart to change it) she was a black lab mix, a big softie, sweetest nature and the best ever companion. We still miss her today she was very much part of our family and I have always wanted to give something back to the rescue to say thank you for our lovely furry friend. So I approached the National Animal Welfare Trust and asked them if I could take pics of some of their rescue dogs for a 2018 Calendar to help raise funds for the rescue which is in Clacton, Essex. They do such an amazing job of looking after and rehoming dogs, cats and other animals if you are interested in ordering a Calendar and supporting this great cause please contact them or drop me a line. All funds go to the NAWT rescue centre in Clacton.

Here is Arthur one of the rescue dogs who has now found his forever home.

Woohoo Nicholas McCarthy’s new album cover!

I know it’s been a while since I added a blog post, after a busy summer I took some time off and lost myself on a boat on the Norfolk Broads and loved a week away on Rhodes cycling to deserted beaches and eating lots of greek salad. Now I’m back having switched one of my labels from being a ‘smoker’ to being a ‘vaper’ I have also had my haircut and am seriously reconsidering the gym!

So a little piece of news ( which I am really chuffed about) is Nicholas McCarthy (Pianist) has chosen to use one of my images to use on his new album cover Echoes which is out now he is also on tour see more info here.

Family photography on Mersea Island beach

Spending so much time in my studio it’s a refreshing change to go and shoot outside. The beach is a great place to head with young children you don’t need many props just let them have fun and explore as long as it’s not too cold or chucking it down with rain it’s perfect for getting natural shots. Take a look at my site The Family Photographer to find out more.

Playing about with Cinemagraphs…

Okay so I have become hooked on a new distraction, making Cinemagraphs!

I love this effect of using video and creating layers in Photoshop to keep some of the image as a moving image but make the rest of the image static.It makes for a cool selfie don’t you think?
