Sue & Dolly - Equine Lifestyle Photography in the Lancashire Hills

August 14, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
Almost every equine lifestyle photo shoot is a little like venturing into the unknown, before I arrive I have no real idea of what the location will be like from a photography point of view. I don't what the light will be like, whether we will be able to venture far from the stables, if we can go into fields and obviously I have no idea what the we...

My Story (Part Two) - Stepping Outside Our Comfort Zones

August 06, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
A couple of posts back I shared part of my story, how I bought a camera, very much on whim, just a series of events that all came together and ended in an unplanned purchase. I shared some of first pictures which I'm happy to admit are pretty dull and uninspiring. Towards the end of that post I mentioned that I enrolled with The Open College of th...

Introducing Lifestyle Maternity Photography - Mini Sessions

July 31, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
I'm really excited to be launching mini sessions for lifestyle maternity photography with a fantastic offer, which I'll get to later, but first I wanted to explain why I'm so passionate about maternity photography and why I'll be offering year round mini sessions even though they aren't something I normally offer. I'm a mum of a very nearly 23 yea...

My Story (Part One) + Why I'm Launching Online Training

July 22, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
It sounds a little dramatic to say that photography changed my life but it really did in so many ways. From small, but really important, ways such as changing how I look at everyday life (everything is a photo opportunity!) to the really big change of having my own business and all that that has lead to, winning a major national award, being in var...

My Favourite Images (its all about the emotion) | Equine Lifestyle Photography in Cheshire

July 13, 2015  •  2 Comments
I'm sure I'm not the only photographer who has their personal favourite images from each photography session and I think we will all have our own, very different, reasons for those favourites. For some I'm sure that it will be the lighting or the composition or maybe a just so perfect pose. I've been looking through some of my favourites recently,...

Hunting for Whales & Snails | Manchester Family Photography at the Seaside

June 10, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
Anyone who knows me will know how much I love to be beside the sea, it doesn't even matter what the weather is like, I've been known to trek along a beach in my wellies in the middle of winter when its been so windy I can hardly keep my eyes open. Fortunately the weather for this family photo shoot was much better than that, the dark and ominous cl...

Commercial Food Photography in Bolton

May 27, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
It's not that often that I share the photography that I do for my commercial clients on my blog but when it looks so mouth wateringly tasty it seems a shame not to share! I don't have much of a sweet tooth, personally I'm much more of a savoury person, but if there's one desert I love it's cheesecake so imagine my delight when I got the phone ca...

A Well Kept Secret | Children & Ponies in the Ribble Valley

April 24, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
"Never work with children and animals" - that well known old saying, I've always wondered where it came from but wherever it was it couldn't be less true for me! I love working both with children and with animals so when Amy & Dylan's mum rang to book a photo shoot for the children and their ponies, Dolly and Blaze, I was really excited. Photograph...

Sue And Her Boys | Equine Lifestyle Photography in Lancashire

March 18, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
I gave myself a little surprise when I realised that I hadn't actually shared this lovely equine photoshoot from last summer on the blog, I'm also a little pleased though because it gave me an excuse to have another look at the images! I was really excited to photograph Sue, not only does she have four beautiful horses that mean the world to her b...
