My first animal portrait!

Meet Ralphie......he lives with Harry (see last post) and is adorable which is great praise coming from me seeing as I am not too keen on doggies. Ralphie was very welcoming and even stood still for a few mins wondering what on earth I was doing!
I don't think animal portraiture is for me but I do love this shot......

Monday, 24 November 2008 out for the snowballs when he's around!

I was very excited to wake up on Sunday morning and see a layer of snow everywhere knowing this would make for a more exciting photoshoot.....especially with a 5 year old.

So we have the basic ingredient of snow, add Harry and mix in a large dollop of high jinx and a sprinkle on some cheeky cuteness. Garnish with a photographer dressed for the North Pole and there you have it!

We had a great time and Harry is a great shot with those one point one landed right on the end of my lens. Thank god I had the filter on!

Charlotte - the cutest baby in Durham!

Today I had the honour of meeting a lovely family - Atina, Steve and the most scrumptious little girl, Charlotte. Charlotte is six months old with a lovely smile and quite obviously adores Mummy and Daddy! I had a great chat with Steve about all things photography which was great as I just usually bore my husband!

Atina and I were planning our weddings around the same time are were both regulars on a forum. It is great that they now have a beautiful daughter and enjoying married life.

It was bitterly cold today so we stayed warm indoors but I have been invited back to capture her first birthday where we can get outside in the garden........looking forward to it!

Tony and Donna hit Newcastle's Quayside

It was November 16th and we were ready for whatever the british weather could throw at us and guess what? It was blazing sunshine! Let's hope this bodes well for Tony and Donna's wedding in June 2010....

Tony and Donna are a lovely couple just starting out on life's journey together with a new house and a wedding date set so it was a great time to capture them looking all smoochy together. We took a trip to the Quayside which is a amazing place for a photoshoot and ended up in the park opposite my house (another good place to shoot) for some greenery.

Beatrice takes her first steps!

Unfortunately this was a rare occasion when I didn't have my camera. So in celebration of the event I thought I would post a lovely photo of her that I took on her first birthday last month.

Also I am pleased that so many couples are interested in booking me for their weddings next year. Just today I met Ashley and Peter who are a great couple and getting married at The Littlehaven Hotel in South Shields next July. It's an amazing location and I can't wait for those beach shots!

see for more details.

No Turkey thanks to XL - But rainy London was great!

Many of you already know that we lost our first anniversary holiday to Turkey when XL went under but not to be beaten we went to York instead. But afterwards LLoydsTSB were 'kind' enough to give us our money back so off we went to London! It was a busy weekend in the capital what with the Lord Mayor's Parade and Rememberance Sunday so we tried to avoid the crowds while remembering those who lost their lives fighting for our country in our own way. As per usual the camera came with me and I chose the D40 as it's a amazing camera especially for travelling as it's so light. I missed my zoom lens though and tried to make do with the kit lens. Not great but I was only shooting snaps remember!! We visited St Paul's Cathedral (beautiful), The Tate Modern (no wonder that place is free!!!), Greenwich (pretty and great markets), Covent Garden (loads going on) and load of shops and bars. I've sneaked a photo of my hubby in too....well we have been married now for 1 year and 2 months and he still looks quite good!
