Manchester Documentary Family Photographer - Evie's Birthday Shoot


A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting up with Evie and her family in their beautiful home in Didsbury, Manchester. It was a cold Autumn morning, thick fog hung in the air like a little bit of Halloween magic was waiting for us outside. It was also the day before Evie’s first birthday. We stayed at home for a little bit while Evie had her bath, some cuddles from Mum and Dad, got dressed and was given some of her birthday presents. These are my favorite type of family photos to take. The normal little parts of Evie’s child hood, little every day things like Evie’s Mum putting her shoes on for her are more special than they might seem at first, there will be a day not too far in the future when Evie will be able to put on her own shoes, get dressed and wont need that help any more and that’s what makes being able to capture this fleeting little piece of Evie’s history extra special.

I am currently running some special offers on Family Shoots at the moment, offering different levels of coverage for all budgets… Please check out my Seasonal offers here…

4.52 Structure?

So this blogs only been going for a few weeks and I already feel like it might be getting a bit boring... Lets face it, even with pretty pictures sometimes a week if the life of  me isn’t too much to shout about! Especially at the moment while I'm limping about the house and not getting outside very much (don't worry... if you were... it's only a sprain!)  So I thought I’d bring a little bit more structure (kind of) and I’m going to bring topics in on some weeks, like food, travel, family, birds, etc… For the slow weeks, giving you all a little bit more reason to come and visit me and my humble little blog, I can see some have you have been reading (well I suppose all of you if you are actually reading this!) and that’s quite exciting for me, as I wasn’t sure if anyone would, maybe my Nan and a few of my mates! Hi Nan :)  But thank you for reading, it means a lot and I’ll try and keep it as interesting as I can. If any of you can think of anything you’d like to see a blog about then drop me an email and I’ll see what I can do.

In keeping with the title of Structure here are two photos of two random strangers and a baby!*

*This isn't just any baby this is a 5 star, super cute, cheeky little monkey baby called Harrison, but you'll get your fill of him in a few weeks time.... ;)

So this week I spent most of my time editing the photos from the gorgeous Winter Wedding of Jessica and Leon I did in York the previous week, it was a really special wedding for a lot of reasons, not only were Jessica and Leon totally gorgeous to look at but they were getting married in one of the most beautiful cities in England. I won’t spill the beans on all the true magic of the day just yet, keep your peepers ready for a romantic photographic feast later on in the month…

Katherine Clements and The Crimson Ribbon

One of my favourite shoots over the past few weeks was with author Katherine Clements. Katherine is at a very exciting time in her life as she has just had her debut novel published and is in the middle of writing her next book! You’ve got to admit, that’s pretty damn exciting! We visited the Chetham's Library in Manchester where the staff kindly allowed us to leaf through their selection of precious old books, they even let Katherine into the closed off area to have a good look a the old printing press that they have on the premises. I think that was my favourite part of the day, Katherine was so happy she just couldn’t stop giggling with excitement!
