Today I will be chatting about a topic that i’ve been wanting to speak up about for a long time.

I’ve just struggled with how to word it and how to share my story with transparency without worrying about what “other people” will think. 

Then I found some “other people” who had shared similar stories, and their stories encouraged me – they made me feel less like an outcast, more accepted. 

And I knew that it was time.

If i can be the voice that encourages just one person and makes them feel less alone in their struggle or story, I need to step into those shoes. No question about it.

People who share my story need to know that they’re not alone. They need to know that there is hope and healing and that their struggle doesn’t have to last forever.

Sometimes, life knocks on the door and you've got to be The One to step up and step in. When Kathryn and Moray got in touch with me, they had just been let down by their third wedding photographer. Their wedding was in two days. Yup. 

What makes a picture look good?

A picture can look absolutely perfect to anyone else, but if you felt stiff and awkward in the moment, you won’t like it.

Two years ago, April hadn’t even planned on going to that party. 

The party where she’d sit up all night, talking to a handsome stranger. The party where she met Ricardo.

YOU, ME & US: A Family Photography Session with An Intimate Twist

"This has been really therapeutic! I remembered I really like spending time with you, just you and me. We need to do more of this".

She said to her husband towards the end of our family photography session.

#Goals.

That right there is exactly the impact I want my sessions to have. To be about more than capturing pretty pictures. For it to be an experience that uplifts and restores.

5 Valentine Experiences for Couples in London or Surrey

I love valentines. How could I not – I love love and can be such a soppy girl when it comes to it. My husband, however, is quite the cynic at times. He’s the salt to my sugar! And he sort of thinks valentines is overrated. Thus, we don’t really celebrate it. I mean, I still make a point of doing something special together, just for the two of us – though it’s rarely dinner and roses! Instead, we like fun couple activities :-) And so without further ado! Behold. The Ultimate List of Valentine Ideas for adventurous couples in London or Surrey – though I’m sure you could find something similar wherever you’re based!

This is a story about Lucy and her three boys. When I asked her why she wanted to have these photos taken she said "When they (my boys) look at them, maybe one day with their own children, I want them to see how much we love them".

Inside Hammersmith Town Hall the chitter chatter of excited guests was bouncing off the walls. Exchanging vows, the groom choked back on his tears - completely overwhelmed and overjoyed with the moment. There was enough love to fill the whole room, and then some.
