New year, new website!

Well, sort of – it’s the same website, but it’s had a bit of a revamp so you lovely lot can see what it is I do, actually see my galleries, and, y’know, book me if you want a shoot. Because blog posts are brilliant, but photos are probably more what you’re expecting from a photographer.

It’s definitely best to know at this stage that I don’t do anything normally…!

However, it’s quite big and exciting to have it all out in the world in one place at last – after more than ten years of hiding my light under a bushel, I am finally ready to take on the world with my camera… one shoot at a time!

There are big plans afoot for this little business in 2017 – I have been plotting with a fellow photographer, a bridal designer, two authors and an illustrator… and I am very excited for the secret projects we’re hatching together. Watch this space for details.

Wishing you health, happiness, good books and good friends in 2017,

Pet Portraits: Captain Floof and Princess

img_0432On a warm July evening this summer, I received a text from a friend, telling me she and her husband had found a tiny grey kitten on their evening walk, and that the kitten was close to death, and in a pitifully bad condition.

I cried, and then we all waited with bated breath through the days of antibiotics and cleaning and feeding him up. Twelve weeks and an amputated tail (and a quick neutering while they were at it) later, Janine asked if I would do a portrait session of him and his adopted sister Princess.

And I was only too happy to oblige…
