Hannah & Freya

  Every couple of years Hannah & Freya’s lovely Mummy asks us to take pictures of her girls.  It’s so wonderful to see them each time, much taller, but always as smiley and expressive.  This time we headed to Avenham Park on a gloriously sunny afternoon, and had lots of fun exploring.  They are so...

Victoria & Family

We were so happy when Vicky asked us to come and take pictures at a family party.  We love a good celebration, and they had plenty to celebrate (Vicky’s upcoming 30th, Dad Steve’s 60th and Mum Louise’s retirement).  They trimmed up Croston Old School with flowers, bunting and pom poms, and had a lovely afternoon...

Emily & Philip Portraits

  We spent a lovely evening with these two gorgeous people, who recently decided to spend the rest of their lives together.  Philip was tasked with sourcing balloons earlier in the day, and he managed to find the most enormous ones, which they unleashed into the wind over Albert Dock.  We had an explore, got...

Kate & Luke Portraits in London

  These two crazy kids are getting married later this year.  We had a fun trip down to London to go on a nature ramble in a pretty park in the scorching sunshine.  The wedding is going to be an awesome, cosy, wintery affair and we cannot wait, although I’m pretty upset they won’t be...


This shoot was a first for us; we were a birthday surprise!  George and Rick have made an utterly adorable addition to their family; we took a few pictures of him in their beautiful home (including possibly my favourite ever baby photos of the birthday boy and his son playing pool :-)).

Courtney & Adam Portraits

Courtney and Adam are not only lovely, funny and adorable with each other, but they also happen to have a beautiful home in an idyllic village in the Cotswolds.  We went down to spend the afternoon with them (and their two rambunctious pups); talked about their wedding next summer (excited!), talked shop with Courtney (she’s...

Natalie & Ian Portraits

Natalie & Ian run a very busy wedding photography business (www.wowtasticweddings.co.uk), which doesn’t leave them much time to actually have some pictures with each other.  We know the feeling! Determined to fix this, off we went to one of our favourite haunts, Rivington, to get some portraits of their lovely faces!  They were an absolute...

Hannah, Carl & Reenie Portraits

Little Reenie is such an adorable tot!  Last week we went to meet her (and catch up with Hannah and Carl), and took some pictures at home and at their new home, which is undergoing quite a major renovation.  She was so happy, even in the freezing cold wind when we had her sitting on...

Hannah & Dan Portraits

Last week I headed on down to Birmingham for a little pre-wedding ‘practise’ shoot with Hannah & Dan in Birmingham.  They were a pleasure to hang out with and very photogenic!  They also knew some secret little parks that were pretty much deserted despite the glorious weather – very useful! Can’t wait for their wedding...

Isla & Family

It was a pleasure to hang out with these lovely people last week in the afternoon sun.  This isn’t the first time we’ve photographed Isla, but it’s amazing how much she’s changed – walking, talking, and that cheeky smile!

Mary, Lee & Eva

A few years have passed since we photographed Mary and Lee’s lovely wedding, it was wonderful to see them again and meet their beautiful little Eva.  She is such a calm and happy little thing, just like her parents.  We had a good wander around Yorkshire Sculpture Park in the sunshine, an amazing place, think...

Rebecca & Joseph Portraits

Bex and Joey are getting married this summer; in-between suit fittings and cake testing they managed to squeeze in some snuggling in the woods, and we just so happened to be there with our cameras 🙂


This is my friend Laura.  We met on the first day of high school (“hi my name’s Laura” “No WAY so’s MINE!”) and bonded over our love of stationery, Clueless, making up dances, and our entrepreneurial spirit (we made a fortune selling decorative objects made of salt dough at school fetes).  Here are some pictures I...
