~ January Snow ~

Ok, so the snow arrived again this year and, even though it had been forecast for a week, the whole country still manages to get in a mess, with badly gritted roads, school closures, and panic buying milk and bread.

We, on the other hand, Love the snow. The dog acts like a puppy, the boy builds snow mounds and also test the durability of my camera with snow balls (which seems to keep passing the tests), I get to take pretty pictures that I don’t normally see and the husband gets to get the fire roarings (it’s a man thing I’m sure).

These are just a few of my favourite shots from this weekends antics – I hope you like them! xx

~ Gemma & Anthony – Snowed up ~

Meet Gemma and Anthony – they are childhood sweethearts! Gemma is super organised! She booked me for their wedding this November back in the spring Last year!!! But today was the day that I finally got to meet them both properly. They were beautiful together – sooooo smiley! And the conversation flowed freely – unless that was just me whittering on most of the time!

The (quite obvious) added bonus todays session was the Snow! It was like being in a fairytale – I just loved shooting them, and can’t wait to meet their boys over the summer for a picnic by a windmill:)

I hope you enjoy these xx

~ Cara Blue ~


This is Cara – I’ve been itching to photograph her for a few months and we just haven’t been able to get it together – apart from today! She was a super star cause it was so flippin’ freezin! I think there is something very special about her and the way she looks – she wasn’t too sure about having her photograph taken, but I’m hoping with these I can persuade her to shoot with me again!!

Have a good weekend everyone!

~ R&C Married at Fawsley Hall ~

Well, this was Robin & Cliffs day. I was quite nervous about doing this wedding as I work with Robin at the day job (and I didn’t even know that she had a different name until the vicar was reading the vows in church – Elizabeth!) I think there’s a lot more pressure doing the wedding of someone that you know – I’m not sure whether they expect more, or you’re trying to out do yourself, either way my nerves were rife!

They needn’t have been, The whole wedding party were so warm and welcoming that both myself (and Jenny my second shooter) were put straight at ease – and the weather!!! Well who would have thought that it could be so beautiful in December. I can hand on heart say that this is the wedding that has made me the most proud of my work and ability to deliver something special, and its the people that are in the Photo’s that help create that atmosphere – So Robin and Cliff – Thank you from the bottom of my heart! And please thank the wedding party too! I’d do it all over in a heartbeat!

Enjoy xxxxx
