I met this lovely couple a few weeks ago at Debdale Park in Manchester for their engagement shoot. When they mentioned reservoirs to em I was so excited and knew I wanted to shoot this around sunset to have that beautiful romantic early evening light that I love.

These guys were so natural and needed very little direction from me. I cannot wait for their autumn wedding, they have just gone and planned a wedding for gorgeous autumn! I just know they will make the most stunning photos!

Here are some of my favourite photos from the shoot. They are ALL my favourite really, but I have to narrow it down somehow, so I will only post ten of them here.

Ok, so technically there’s eleven photos here.. but who’s counting right ?

Family fun on Anglesey

Although I have made the UK my home in the last few years, I still have so much more of this beautiful land left to explore!

We recently spent a week on holiday in beautiful Anglesey. It was so much like the part of South Africa where I grew up with beautiful beaches, mountains and we had fantastic weather for the most part. There was one incident though when the hubs and I stopped with our eldest girl for a cheeky ice cream and cake at a stunning beach cafe because we got caught in the rain as weย walked back to our cottage. Apart from that one day we had sunshine all week!

I took my camera and got a chance to take some holiday photos, it was so relaxing at times to just wander off by myself and take photos of whatever I liked the look of. We went with a pair of grandparents and an Auntie who you may see on some of these. Oh and of course you will see our boy’s “holiday face” as he calls it lol ! It’s a big massive smile he gave me everytime I took a photo of him.

Anyhow it was beautiful and here are some photos ๐Ÿ™‚


It’s about time I wrote about our recent little family getaway. We went on holiday for a week in Center Parcs in the Lakes, and even though it’s winter and it snowed we had a brilliant time.

The day we set off was the nicest weather wise and we stopped at the beautiful Lowther Castle on the way to where we were staying. We ended up spending a few hours there. All thanks to the BEST playground we have ever found ! It was massive and made for children and their grown ups to play together.



Hello ! This is my first blog post in a very long time. I haven’t blogged since I first started photography 4 years ago and shortly after I gave up on blogging completely. Over the years my photography style has evolved into what it is today, it has been an exciting journey as I have grown and matured in my art, and with this I have decided to blog and share more stories of the people I shoot, how I work and a bit more about myself also.
