This little guy was so in awe of his strange new world that he really didn’t want to sleep and miss anything!… But isn’t he just the cutest???

2014 in Photographs

As 2014 draws to a close (and as the tradition goes), I like to go back through all my shoots from the year and pick out a very small selection of my favourites.  A mere 10 images out of thousands to choose from – no easy task!

But here they are – the images Me Myself & I loved the most… Special moments captured of some lovely people who remind me why I love what I do so much!


I hope you like my selections for 2014, and I look forward to a very exciting year ahead!  I hope you’ll enjoy following (or even better being a part of) my journey!

This series of images are very special to me, and the hardest shoot(s) I have had to do so far! Introducing the reason I’ve been so quiet since May – my little girl Rosie was born 23 June and has been keeping me on my toes ever since!

Newborn shoots are never really easy and I have a new-found respect for all the new parents who have come to me in those first few sleep deprived days to get those precious shots taken!

Normally I would expect to get at least 20 quality images within the session (which can last anywhere up to three hours… but I was only able to manage around 10 images from my own, over a few different days (don’t even mention the time to edit!) …and hubby still told me off for the positions I put myself in post surgery… oops!

But seriously, I couldn’t miss capturing this fleeting moment in time.  Now I have these gorgeous photos to remind me how tiny she was (and how much hair she had at birth for that matter!) 🙂


Hello 2014!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you’ve all managed to have a fabulous start to 2014, whether it was restful or productive over the silly season.  I managed to have myself a nice wee break, but now it’s time to get back into it… and one of my ‘resolutions’ will to pay my blog more attention this year!

As has become tradition, I like to look back and reflect on some of my favourite images from the past 12 months.

As I thought hard, and eventually whittled down my choices to a mere 10 out of over 2000 images from my library of ‘2013 keepers’, I began to notice a pattern emerging.  Relationships seem to have been a strong focus for me in 2013.  Capturing love in all forms, whether it’s a young couple about to embark on their next big adventure together, a parent and child’s unbreakable bond, or the love between an owner and loyal pet, each is truly special in their own way.  This is why I love doing what I do…. Capturing the emotions of the moment, and preserving that precious memory in time forever!

Then there are the individual portraits, the one’s that tell a story with their eyes and body language.  That moment when their guard is completely down, if I can capture that instant, then it’s as if I’ve got a glimpse into my subject’s soul.  

I hope you like my selections for 2013, and I look forward to a very exciting 2014 ahead, with many ideas and goals to work on!  I hope you’ll enjoy following (or even better being a part of) my journey!

This was a wonderful session of firsts – not only was it Ava’s first birthday celebration, but it was also her very first experience with cake and balloons!

A little unsure at first, I think she warmed to the idea of the whole thing in the end!
