The Perrin Family shoot


The Perrin family

The Perrin family contacted me to book in for a surprise photo shoot. Mr Perrin aka Dad, didn’t have a clue that his lovely wife a two adorable children were having a photoshoot done. As it turns out the photo he has on his desk was a teeny bit old! We needed to update it and get mum and the two children in a picture together. One he could have on his desk at work, look at everyday and see his family smiling back at him. We decided to visit Kourion Ruins which is absolutely stunning! (link to Kourion can be found at the end of this post)

We took a nice slow stroll around the grounds and found some lovely places to settle down and take some shots. One thing a realised very quickly is that it was 31 degrees and the sun was harsh, I worked with it but it was obvious that a full hours shoot in this heat would cause problems. No one likes a sweaty look about them in their photo’s now do they?

We had such fun exploring and I finally felt like I was fully back at work. As most of you know, we have only just moved over to Cyprus and I had taken just over a month off of work. Normally that would be heaven but when your hobby is your job, you miss it, really miss it. I love my job so much that it didn’t matter what had to be done, I wanted to be back at work the day I landed in Cyprus….. Obviously I didn’t do that but I really wanted to. Instead we spent 3 weeks exploring the Island and finding lots of lovely places for photoshoots. I always like to go exploring so I can offer new places to my clients. I spent 3 weeks learning about lighting and the suns positioning in the sky at certain times. Anyway, I loved the photoshoot and the family were just lovely.

Before I go on and on about how amazing everything was, here are some of my favourite shots from the shoot, I hope you like them. If you do, why not give it a share on facebook :)

Mr & Mrs Turner Wedding


The Wedding of Mr & Mrs Turner

I love weddings, I love the atmosphere, the nerves, the emotions and the absolute love you see as the couple exchange their vows. The way the day all of a sudden changes once the ceremony is over always amazes me. All the nerves are gone and everyone takes a breath and gets on with enjoying themselves. It is such a lovely thing to be able to capture and be a part of.

The wedding of Mr & Mrs Turner was held in Macclesfield at Heaton House Farm.
It was such a beautiful location and the grounds were absolutely stunning, I would love to sit up there one day and just photograph the landscape, miles and miles of sheer beauty. The rolling hills were such a perfect backdrop and the amazing tree was perfect for framing my shots.

Although it was a very cold and very windy day they sun came out and the wedding began, Chloe looked beautiful as she walked down the aisle on her fathers arm and Chris was bursting with joy, I’m pretty sure I saw a tear in there somewhere. I do love it when you see men get seriously emotional when they finally see their bride, happiness just bursting out of them.

The ceremony was lovely and the couple looked amazing. After the ceremony we braved the outside for a while to get the couple shots before joining the others on the hill for the group shots.
As I always do, I will tell you the story through my images and stop waffling on.

Finley’s Deployment mini shoot


Being an RAF family, I totally understand what it is like when a loved one goes away. I have also seen the other side, when I served in the Royal Air Force I spent 6 months away so I know how it feels to miss family back home. There are always young children around me who are missing parents who are away serving the country and I wanted to do something to help them out. something fun that would take their minds of Daddy or Mummy just for a little while. I came up with Deployment mini photoshoots. Any way my first taker was this gorgeous little lad, Finley,  who had the biggest smile I’ve seen for a while. We had loads of fun on both of his photoshoots and I have been told that his dad, who is away at the moment, think’s the pictures are great! Here are my favourites. Enjoy xx (more…)

Royal International Air Tattoo


As you all know, I adore my family. I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful daughters who light up my life. My life before my family was the military, I served in the Royal Air Force as a Police Dog handler. I loved my job and would have spent my life serving my country…..but then I met Aaron and fell head over heals in love!  Aaron has given me a wonderful life and two gorgeous little girls. So now I live as a military wife, it’s not so bad and it does have it’s perks. For example, the Royal International Air Tattoo. I love everything Military, especially the planes. My eldest daughter is the same, she adores planes. You will notice this in one particular image below. So R.I.A.T is a huge deal to us as a family, we Love it! Anyway, R.I.A.T was last weekend and I took my camera along.   Here are some images from the day. This is my family…….and the red arrows!
