At the end of 2011 I did a photo shoot for Nina. She is a super lovely person who traveled a long way to see me for the shoot.  Like everyone I photograph she was a little nervous to begin with, but she really got into the shoot, took direction well and just had fun with it! I love doing boudoir photo shoots because I love seeing the transformation in someones confidence from when they arrive to when they leave! 

I often get sent thank you emails after they have received the photos, but Nina went an extra step and created a thank you card with a photo of her living room on the front and a really lovely note inside.

Below is the photo of her living room - as you can see she now has her favorite photos printed on canvas and up on the walls! Amazing! :D

 And as well as a lovely card, I also got a nice comment on my facebook photography page too! :)
"Thank you so much for the shoot we done a few weeks a go, the pictures are amazing, better then i ever imagined they would be and I could look, and that is all down to you.
You made me feel so comfortable and welcome and I have been practicing smiling with my eyes!!!!!"

Here are a few of her photos from our shoot:

Well Done Nina for a fantastic job!

Working with local designers is always fun :)

Last month I did a promo photo shoot with a talented up and coming designer Ingo Shanyenge. It was a really great day and even better, the sun was out all day! Ingo showed his collection yesterday as part of Brighton Fashion Week. You can have a look at some of the photos below. You can also seen more photos and an interview with Ingo on the Brighton Fashion Week blog here:

Thanks to Joe from and Prosper for being such great models. I hope to work with you both again! And thanks to Jodie and Laura for your styling :0) I can always count on you both to help pull a shoot together!

A sunny photo shoot

A friend of mine did a course in hair and make up this year and I was her 'model' for her exam. Here is a photo of the final look. Well done Marie for doing such a good job!

Here is a shoot I did last month. Our lovely model traveled from London to work with us. It was a fun and relaxed shoot and such a beautiful day! A few of the images are below :)

Real People = More rewarding work!

Yes we all know I love my fashion photography, and don't get me wrong, I love fashion. It's so expressive and creative! I get overly excited when I see a beautiful pair of shoes that I can't afford, but even more excited when I see a beautiful image...perfect model, perfect clothes, perfect styling, perfect lighting, perfect concept and perfect photography. But it's certainly not my entire life and I wouldn't want to become one of those fashionistas I sometimes meet and find a bit...dull and slightly full of themselves. Fashion photography is awesome and fun, but I like that my life is more than that.

So when I get to photograph real people with real stories to tell me - that's when I get even more satisfaction from my job. And sometimes these people blow me away with their beautifully shiny personalities and fantastic sense of humor and view of the world. These are the people I love to meet, and how lucky am I that they choose to use me as their photographer! Below are a few photos from recent lovely clients I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with on a variety of photo shoots.

Thank you to all my previous clients and all of my future clients - you keep me happy and grounded in what I do and I am grateful to you all :)
