Toddler Photography | Cake Smash | Savanna | January 2019


As I mentioned earlier this month, with little Eden’s cake smash, its always nice to get repeat custom.

I photographed Laura & Mike’s first child, Jamie, a few times now, and even Savanna, as a newborn, so was

really nice to have her back for her first birthday cake smash session ๐Ÿ™‚

Pre Wedding | Jemma & Chris | West Tower | Ormskirk | January 14th 2019

Pre Wedding | Jemma & Chris | West Tower | Ormskirk | January 14th 2019


I’ve known Jemma for a few years now, so it was an absolute honour & a pleasure to be asked to shoot

her & her partner Chris’ up coming wedding.

With them both working different shifts in the airline industry, it was quite difficult to nail down a date where we were

all 3 available, but luckily, on the day we arranged, West Tower was available too, which was nice, as it gave me a

look at their gorgeous wedding venue ๐Ÿ™‚

The day started at Kym & Gavin’s home, where Kym was busy doing the bridesmaids hair –

the joy of being a hairdresser I guess! HA

wedding-kym-gavin-ponderosa (140)

As Gavin wasn’t too far away, I nipped to grab a few shots of him just finishing off getting ready,

before it was back to see Kym, who was in her dress by this point ๐Ÿ™‚

Got to say though, those are some stunning bridesmaid dresses – the ladies pull them off too! ๐Ÿ˜‰

wedding-kym-gavin-ponderosa (181)wedding-kym-gavin-ponderosa (206)

It was then time to head just down the road to St. Peter’s Church, where unfortunately I

wasn’t allowed to take many pictures during the ceremony, but we certainly got a few before & after.

A little confetti shot & a few group shots, before heading to Ponderosa ๐Ÿ™‚

From the moment I met Rhiannon & Craig, at a local wedding fayre – I knew this wedding was going to be fun! ha

It started, at a hotel a few miles away from where Rhiannon & Craig where to marry, for the bridal prep.

wedding-spring-cottage-rhiannon-criag (112)

The sun was shining as Rhiannon arrived @ Hallmark Hotel in Leyland, for her wedding

ceremony, with her man, Craig.

After the ceremony it was time to head to Spring Cottage in Rivington, for as Rhiannon & Craig put it, the party! ha

wedding-spring-cottage-rhiannon-criag (312)

Rhiannon & Craig wanted a good confetti shot .. so that’s exactly what they got! ha ๐Ÿ˜‰

It was then time for the group shots, as the weather was closing in.

See – I told you it’d be fun – especially when the MOTG flips you the bird! haha

wedding-spring-cottage-rhiannon-criag (378)

The rain came quickly & with some force – everyone was under shelter, except this little lad –

no one was stopping him from enjoying himself ๐Ÿ˜‰

wedding-spring-cottage-rhiannon-criag (390)

We decided to leave the bride & groom portraits until after the wedding breakfast & speeches.

So, after the wedding breakfast the rain had stopped, so we headed out for some bride & groom portraits.

Newborn | Toddler Photography | Elliott & Sophia | May 2017

Newborn | Toddler Photography | Elliott & Sophia | May 2017


Its always nice when past bride & groom’s bring their little ones to my studio, for a photo shoot.

The idea for this shoot was to get a few of Elliott & then get some of him & his sister, Sophia.

Elliott was great on his own, but sadly he wasn’t for playing when his big sister came into the shoot!

We still got some great piccys tho – courtesy of In The Night Garden playing in the background! ha

Training Course | Paris | France | Rachel & Nick | May 2017

Training Course | Paris | France | Rachel & Nick | May 2017


wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (5)

I don’t do many training courses anymore, but when I do I make sure they’re the good ones! Ha

This one was another with Chris Chambers, but this time it was a trip to Paris.

A trip away, always has to start with one thing – A journey & this plane journey certainly had some

stunning views ๐Ÿ™‚

wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (6)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (49)

When we arrived on Sunday afternoon, we had a few hours to get things ready, before it was out around Paris for

an evening of photography ๐Ÿ™‚

We, of course started with the most recognisable icon of both Paris & perhaps France, the Eiffel Tower.

Its amazing, just moving your position, and using the light in different ways, what results you can achieve,

with it being a Chris Chambers course, there was an element of adding light too, in the form of speedlights ๐Ÿ™‚

This area below, show what can be done, even when the area isn’t perhaps the nicest, and smells of wee! haha

wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (60)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (61)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (4)

After the “wee” area, it was back to the bridge we started the day on, for a few more night time shots ๐Ÿ˜‰

wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (3)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (13)

Monday, was more of a recce day, so it was a bit (not in terms of walking!! lol) relaxed, so it was a day to take some

iPhone landscapes, drink some beer & enjoy some French food ๐Ÿ™‚

wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (14)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (15)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (17)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (32)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (11)

Tuesday started EARLY, with some sunrise pictures, using both the available light & off camera flash.

It was then off to a gorgeous building we found on the recce on Monday – can’t remember its name though!wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (21)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (22)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (53)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (23)

A loving walk in beautiful Paris, always looks especially romantic ๐Ÿ™‚wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (43)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (24)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (44)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (25)

Then it was more walking, by this point my feet were killing me – but did I complain?

Of course i did! haha – But kept on regardless! lol

We reached Notre Dame , and decided to use the gardens round the back for a few images.

wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (45)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (46)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (26)

The pigeons weren’t playing ball for this one – But we’d get them too! … Tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜‰

wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (51)

We stopped at a lovely Parisian cafe for a break, a few beers and a couple of lovely images.

wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (27)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france

Again, I forget the name, but there’s a bridge in Paris where people leave locks attached to the bridge,

well it was at this bridge, Chris showed us what can be achieved with a simple structure & some great lighting –

we’d be back later tonight, so he could show us more.

wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (28)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (59)

It was break time after that, then off to the Louvre at night – unfortunately it was closed off ๐Ÿ™ …..

However we made the best of a bad situation & found some areas around here instead.

wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (29)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (30)

We then headed off to some of the earlier locations, to see how they looked at night –

the answer = gorgeous!

It was another early start on Weds, as this was the final day & we were all flying back later.

….. Told you we got the pigeons to play ball! ha

A train station was even used to grab another brilliant & unusual shot ๐Ÿ˜‰


wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (40)

It was then time to head back towards the hotel, stopping at a few point along the way.

The flight home treated us to more stunning views.

Have to say Paris was lovely – but you’re always happy to be home, aren’t you? ๐Ÿ˜‰
