Artistic Photography In Pregnancy - Maternity Photo Shoots
Many women choose to have their pregnancy documented with a studio photo shoot.
I try to capture the beauty of pregnancy on camera, the Mother's joy and expectations. As such, most maternity photos contain little or no movement, just subtle lighting changes to try and capture different moods.
My goal is to try and convey a sense of the sincerity and seriousness that accompanies a major change in a woman's life. I always let the Mother decide how much or little clothing she wants to wear. I make suggestions, but in the end, it is what the Model is comfortable with.
In the past week,I have done two maternity shoots at my studio in Harleston - and examples can be seen here, if you click on the link :-

Today, I photographed the wedding of Lucy & Nick at Gissing Hall in Norfolk.
It was a lovely wedding and a very enjoyable one to photograph. What started out as perfect lighting conditions at 1.00pm, turned into "challenging" lighting conditions by 3.00pm. It was very much a case of rushing through the romantic Bride and Groom shots and Group photos, as quickly as possible, as I feared the rain would hamper my photography, but the rain held off and I managed to capture the romance, fun and details of the day.

Today, I braved the weather
to photograph the East Anglian Air Ambulance helicopter coming into land
at the Archbishop Sancroft High School in Harleston. In recognition of
the Bullock Fair charity shops in Harleston raising £500,000 since 2004
for the Air Ambulance, a party was held for the staff; as way of a thank
you for all their hard work. In reality, they have paid for over 2000
As well as presenting each member of staff with a
gift, one of the Air Ambulance Helicopters flew in to land of the school
playing field. Despite the bitterly cold wind, the staff had the chance
to view the EX135 P2 Helicopter "up close" and even sit in the cock

Little Mix @ Manchester O2
Tonight I went to Manchester to meet with Leigh-Anne, Perrie, Jesy and Jade (aka 'Little Mix') - not in a Professional capacity; but so that my Daughter could meet them and get autographs;
before seeing them in concert. Now I've been to some concerts in my time, and over the years seen some of the biggest rock bands in the world, but the sound of 3000 high-pitched screaming grils, was probably the noisiest I have ever experienced.
So it's official, "Little Mixers" are a noisy lot! lol.
The photographs I took now appear on my Facebook page.
