I'm always really impressed by people who push themselves to be the very best they can be, especially in this extremely tough industry that I have the pleasure of working in.


One particular example of this is my good friend Misha Grimes, she is a perfect example of someone that never gives up and always give more than 100% in all that she does.


Last summer, I was fortunate enough to be a sponsor for Misha on her campaign to become 'Miss Teen Galaxy England 2017' and on March 12th Misha took the title, a well deserved win after persevering for so long.


Earlier this week, Misha began her tour of the U.K. with her extremely supportive mother 'Kasha' and her first stop was with me at my home studio for some new head shots with her sparkling new crown. As always, its a real pleasure spending time with them both and once again we managed tocapture some fabulous new images, so watch this space!


Misha brought hairstylist Duncan Fisher and make-up artist Patrick Baston, both of whom are outstanding professionals.


I wish Misha every success with her career, the next 12 months are no doubt going to be a busy for her, but I know she'll just take it all in her stride as she always does.

I had looked forward to today's photo shoot for a long time, as it was the winner of the portrait voucher I donated to 'Down syndrome Liverpool Group' in 2016.


A lot of you will already know that our son Max has Down syndrome and we are constantly working alongside groups throughout the north west to help raise funds and awareness for the condition.


'Down syndrome Liverpool Group' raise thousands of pounds every year and I was really pleased to be a part of that fundraising by donating the portrait voucher.


But today was all about the winner and 4 year old Melody from Liverpool arrived at the studio and stole our hearts, what a beautiful little girl she is. From the minute she arrived I was on my toes trying to capture her every move and I loved every minute!


As with most child portraits, after 30 minutes she was ready to leave, she'd had enough of me trying to direct her, she knew what was best and made sure her toy monkey got in on the act too.


Overall it was an amazing photo shoot, short and sweet, but we got the shot!


Look out for it here on my website and on my social media soon.


Have a great Easter weekend everyone.

For those of you that visit my website on a regular basis and for those of you that I chat to on social media, you will be aware that I have seriously neglected my website for over 12 months now, in fact this is my first blog since May 2016... terrible I know.


But it has been an extremely busy period for me, one particular client kept me busy for 5 months solid and I finally recieved the planning permission to set up a purpose built home studio. It took over 3 months for that to come through and then I had to find the right company to build it for me and in Dec 2016 it was completed.


My first test shoot ran throughout January and February and I was really impressed with the results, now is the time to push forward and really make it work and I am looking forward to all of the work I have booked in over the coming months.


I am also recieving far more enquireis for wedding packages, this is something I don't do a lot of, but that may change if I feel it is the right direction for my business to go in.


I will be sharing a lot more information here on my blog and linking it to my social media, for those of you that are looking to work with me, you can find my diary here and a link to book me.


Speak to you all soon, keep clicking guys!

I'm all for doing things a little bit different and getting creative at the last minute, but when you've been making plans, researching locations and getting everthing prepared for a very important photo shoot, nothing frustrates me more than the Great British weather letting us down!!!


And that's exactly what happened yesterday! I'd already planned a shoot day with award winning make up artist Anne Bowcock and the original idea was to take a couple of models on location, but when I was contacted by Kiera Weathers management and they told me that if we could arrange to do the photo shoot with her on the 19th May, then that would be perfect, all of our plans changed.


We discussed mood boards and Kiera was spoilt rotten with a fabulous collection of outfits from Mabel Doll.


On the day, we got off to a good start, it was a little overcast and all was looking good, but within 30 minutes the weather changed dramatically and the heavens opened, it meant that our amazing plans of a location shoot changed and it was time to set up the home studio, it's never ideal, but we do get some decent work done in it.


Kiera was in great spirit, we had the music on loud and we all just got on with the shoot.


I'm really pleased with the results and I'm looking forward to working on a few edits over the coming days.
