Puppy Love

A friend got a puppy. Everybody in their household was buzzing with excitement. When I first saw it, it was a curly haired furry little sleeping heap. Guess what my first question was? You’re saying ‘Can I take photos of your puppy’? – You’re exactly right. 🙂 I must have given them a bit of […]

A Soft Spot

I do love faces. Children are the easiest to photograph, adults much harder, and women the worst. They rarely like their appearance (I know the feeling!) and are generally incredibly nervous during a shoot and very critical after a shoot.

The Perfect Sunset

One minute there were no clouds, it looked like it was going to be a dud, then the sky turned the most gorgeous pink and purple with a whiff of clouds that came out of nowhere in between. Sunsets. They can be wonderfully serene and beautiful and nature’s beauty and all. But they can also […]
