Welcome to the squad Buddy Ray!!

So, it’s been a pretty crazy year has 2015!!! I’m sure every year must feel like that to everyone, but this one is extra specially crazy for us; we moved house, (twice! The in-laws kindly putting us up for 2-3 months) and we also welcomed a final member (that is it, no more for us!!) […]

Wedding-Photography-Workshop_0013.jpg

So, a couple of months back I decided to book myself onto a photography workshop, a first for me! I’d spotted Liam and Neil promoting Redfern + Crawley UTD on Facebook and decided to just go for it. A definite impulse purchase! I really wasn’t sure what to expect, and whether or not it would […]

Well, what a year that was. If 2013 is half as good, I’ll be a very lucky boy!! I loved every minute of 2012, its been a whirlwind and I’m not really sure where its gone, but I really couldn’t have asked for more. It got off to an amazing start with the arrival of […]

Baby Portrait Shoot

A little visual update for those of you who aren’t able to see Betsy on a day to day basis, we’ve had an amazing few months and as you can see from below, she’s now happy to show off in front of the camera!!

The ‘Not to plan’ Baby portrait sessions

Usually, in fact 99.9% of the time (so pretty much most of the time), photographers capture babies giggling, chuckling and just generally being content. Now, with having a new blog and all, I thought, lets get some of those pictures and put them up for all to see. Betsy is 9 weeks old now, I’m […]

The Day Everything Changed – [Royal Hospital, Derby]

Betsy-3

Well, they say the birth of your first child (and I’m sure the birth of any children!) are special days, and whoever ‘they’ are, they’re not wrong!! It all started on a friday night late in February 2012, and I won’t bore you with the details, but the signs were there… Jemma was adamant that nothing […]
