The City is Their Playground

We spent a sunny Sunday in Manchester (!) with this lovely family.  They live right in the heart of the city, and we had lots of fun exploring their neighbourhood, drinking coffee and chasing little people.

Best of 2014

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]hat a year it’s been!  We’ve watched our little baby celebrate his first birthday, shot forty weddings, lots of portrait shoots, travelled both for weddings and for fun… and eaten an awful lot of late night takeaways!  It’s been something of a blur to be honest, so it’s been really good to sit down and...

Amy, Elliott & Jacob Portraits

Nothing is more lovely than catching up with previous brides and grooms and meeting their new additions.  Amy and Elliott made a beautiful little boy, Jacob, who is absolutely adorable.

Helen & Terry’s Family Portraits at Formby Beach

We shot Helen & Terry’s wedding 7 years ago, back before we even had a blog.  Sometimes it amazes me that we’ve been doing this for so long!  Their beautiful little family has now grown and it seemed like the perfect time to get a few family portraits in. As they know Formby pretty well,...

Matilda and Family Portrait Shoot

[dropcap]These[/dropcap] guys were so lovely to photograph, and their little one is utterly adorable – you cannot beat a hat with ears! The weather was glorious. Or rather, it was windy and rather chilly, but the light was pretty and that’s what matters – right??

Nell & Rob Portraits

Rob happens to be an awesome photographer who’s moved into video in a big way (Shot by Sodium). He also happens to be getting married to the …

Charlotte & Co Portraits

[dropcap]It’s[/dropcap] been a year since we last photographed this gorgeous family; it was so great to catch up and see how the little ones are now not so little! This time we had a little wander around Lytham Hall, which has some gorgeous grounds – especially in autumn. Just seeing those orange leaves makes me want...


Our friends Rebecca and Pete made a perfect little human. Her name is Bea and she is utterly precious …

Sarah, Steve & Noah Portraits

[dropcap]A[/dropcap] few weeks ago (or rather, just over a month ago – we are rather behind on the blogging!), we met up with these lovely people and their adorable new addition to the family.  Noah is pretty much the same age as our Albert, but he’s already crawling!  Putting aside our clear envy at this, we...

Rebecca, Pete & Bump

[dropcap]Next[/dropcap] week our lovely friends Rebecca and Pete are having a baby.  We had a wander around Chorlton with them to capture some shots of that gorgeous bump before it’s a distant memory.  We are beyond excited for them, they are going to make such wonderful parents!

Kim & John Portrait Shoot at Formby

[dropcap]This[/dropcap] is the third time we’d had the pleasure of photographing Kim & John – their pre-wedding shoot, wedding, and now this portrait shoot before John heads off for an amazing new job.  Having spent this much time with them, we can quite confidently say that Kim & John are awesome.  Warm, funny, and with...

Diane & Adam Portraits

We had a fun little nature ramble with Diane and Adam (slightly more of a ramble than we had initially anticipated, sorry about your shoes guys!).  We’ll be shooting their no doubt lovely wedding at Middleton Lodge this Autumn, and we can’t wait.
