Last week I did a fitness photoshoot for Michael, a personal trainer.


Fitness photography is all about the lighting, using the light to model the physique in the best possible way, getting as much tonal range as possible, from shadow all the way through to high lights.


Here are a few of the photos from Michael’s photoshoot.

Fitness photoshoots cost £65 (correct for 2015) and come with one 8×12 print of your choice from your gallery.  Other images are available at extra cost.  All photoshoots are subject to a 50% booking fee to reserve your date and time in my diary.

At the end of August I attended Debbie and Lukes wedding at the lovely location of Bracklesham barn in West Sussex, a few miles south of Chichester.  They had the most gorgeous day for their wedding.

Debbie and Luke involved the whole family in their service, the children from the families even did a reading which kept everyone entertained. This was the second wedding of the summer which served fish and chips for their meal, followed by an ice cream van serving their dessert.  They chose a beach theme for the wedding, and made their own table centre pieces. They also put up their own photobooth for the evening guests to take photos in with an ipad.

Although the ceremony ran a little late (due to some very bad traffic on the morning) we managed to nip away to the beach for some photos just of the couple between the ceremony and reception.


Here are a few photos from their day, which was full of love and happiness.

Georgina and James’ wedding celebration, Boxgrove.


In August I attended the wedding celebration of the lovely Georgina and James. They chose to have their wedding celebration at Boxgrove Village hall. This is a lovely light and airy village hall, which was perfect for the celebration they had planned. It is also very handy for bride and groom shots as Boxgrove Priory is just across the road, the ruins are just lovely for some personal quiet time photos between the service and reception.

Georgina and James had planned every detail about the day, including all the things that they like. The reception tables were completed with bottles of Coca Cola and Tunnocks Teacakes! There was a sweetie table so the guests could help themselves, and they even provided sun cream/sun glasses/fans and flip flops, always thinking of their guests comfort.  The meal was provided by a fish and chip van, who also provided the pudding of doughnuts and ice cream.


I hope you enjoy looking at some of their photos.




If you are interested in booking me for your wedding, please feel free to contact me for a free informal chat about your wedding requirements, where you can have a look through some of my sample work.


All wedding bookings require a 50% booking fee to be paid and a booking form to be filled in, signed and returned to me, to confirm your booking.

Charlotte and Paul’s wedding celebration at Southend barns.


At the beginning of August I attended the wedding celebration of Charlotte and Paul. I first met this lovely couple and their family last year when I covered their registry office ceremony in Chichester. This year they decided to have a big party so all their friends and family could celebrate with them.  They chose the stunning Southend Barns as their venue, it is a gorgeous place and was perfect for their informal celebration. The weather was very kind to them (always a relief!) and to top off the day they had a visit from a Delorean car!


I hope you enjoy looking at some of the photos from their day.

Hi everyone.


Today I am sharing with you some photos from a recent newborn photoshoot.   I had this gorgeous family visit me as a referral from her baby cousin, who I took newborn photos of just after I had my newborn training.


It was a pleasure to meet you all and take your photos.

I tried out a few new ideas I had for this photoshoot (the black background photos) and I think they worked really well.  Please feel free to leave me some feedback if you would like to.


Newborn photoshoots take place here in my home studio, in Bognor Regis, West Sussex. Current price is £90(2015), which includes one 8×12 print. Newborn photoshoots can last for up to 4 hours as babies can take a while to get to sleep and get into those cute squidgy newborn poses. Ideally babies need to be under 15 days old. Bookings can be taken from your 20 week scan, and a booking fee of 50% of the shoot price will reserve your due date in my diary.


Please feel free to contact me if you would like any more information or to book a newborn photoshoot.


Thank you for reading.
