Inspired By….. Steller

Well I started out writing my Three Things post with the very best of intentions of publishing it on the last day of each month. Did you notice I missed August? I didn’t allow for the end of the month being a Bank Holiday Monday and shooting a wedding on the Friday, being away for […]

Three Things – July

It’s that time again, time to share three random things that I’ve enjoyed during the month. I can’t believe how quickly it’s come around and I found myself in a bit of a panic yesterday trying to decide which three things I would include. Well actually it was two that I was struggling over because […]

Past Their Best – Birds Eye Chillies

I’m continuing in my little mini project to photograph out of date food with some simple portraits. All the food photographed for this project has been bought when it’s reduced due to going out of date and photographed after it’s so called ‘best before’ date. These birds eye chillies were a day out of date and […]

In Search of the Perfectly Imperfect 

Recently I’ve found myself constantly on the look out for photography props. In the very early days of my business my prop hunts were for items to use in baby photography but that novelty wore off and now my baby photography is lifestyle based and completely prop free. My hunt now is for items to […]

Three Things – June

At the end of each month I’m going to share three things that I’ve enjoyed or been inspired by that month, some will be photography related but many won’t. Why three ? Well I thought I’d randomly picked three as a number that wasn’t too many to be boring for a reader or difficult for […]

Flowers for a Friday.

I’ve been playing around with still life images in my living room today, it was really a bit too hot in there for it but there were reasons it had to be done today! There will be more about this on a future post but just for now I thought I’d share some flowers & say […]

A Recent Discovery or Two

If you’ve been looking through the blog you’ve probably realised that I love to use my phone to capture images when I’m out & about. One of my favourite apps is Hipstamatic although I must admit I tend to use it in fits & starts, sometimes I get a little frustrated at waiting for the […]

Food Portraits – Past Their Best

I’ve recently developed a bit of a passion for food photography, I say recently but if I’m honest its more that I’ve started to actually do it myself recently whereas previously I’ve just been admiring and drooling over other people’s food images rather than creating my own. After a few recent shoots for clients I […]

Afternoon Light – Celebrating the Ordinary

There’s a new love in my life, a whole new world has opened up to me !! I’ve just treated myself to the Lensbaby Mobile and now I can combine two loves, the creativity of the Lensbaby and the convenience of the iPhone. The LBM10 only arrived yesterday and I’m already infatuated with it, it […]
