My first month as a Freelance

Well what can I say? The last month has been chaotic but very exciting and I love having the freedom to spend time with my boys. I have been doing some PR work so I’ve gone back to my roots of press work which obviously I love.

Conwy Feast


I had the pleasure of photographing Gwledd Conwy Feast at the end of October. It’s a celebration of food, music and arts set in the medieval riverside town of Conwy. So much work goes into organising such an event hats off to everyone involved as I thoroughly enjoyed the whole weekend. So make sure you get yourselves tickets for next years festival.




Ramblers at Worlds End.


I was asked to cover a ramblers event in Llangollen whilst it was a freezing cold day I got some very good results I was desperate for a rainbow to appear and I was lucky enough I got one too. Volunteers are doing a great job fixing problems along the Offa’s Dyke Path take a look at the work they are doing just wonderful for our beautiful Countryside here in North Wales.



Rubicon Garden Rooms


November I have been doing some work for Ceidiog PR One of the stories I was involved in was Paul Williams, a married father of one who built his own man cave in his back garden. I am tempted for my own ‘She’ cave to escape from the mad house. Would you be tempted? If so he bought it from the amazing This story was picked up by the Liverpool  Echo and The Mirror. I love seeing my work in the newspapers again.


Daisy & Honey


Jane & Mark


Well as November passes it’s been a fabulous month taking pictures of beautiful Daisy and her new puppy ‘Honey’ at Lymme Dam – a lovely location for portraits. We also celebrated the amazing wedding of Jane and Mark at Rowton Hall, Chester. A highly recommended venue and we had a beautiful autumn day too. Thanks to you both for letting us be a part of your day.

I’ve also met some wonderful couples who are getting married next year so looking forward to 2017 already.


I wonder what December will bring now?


Thanks for reading my blog as you can see it’s been a hectic month or so.


Dion & NataliePs I nearly forgot about my Guild of photographer bronze award for this image I am so delighted and thanks for everyone’s kind words.


Hello and welcome…

fullsizerenderHELLO and welcome to my first ever blog.

A bit daunting especially when my background was in journalism but taking pictures not words – so hey ho I will give it my best SHOT. Back in August I made the biggest decision of my life to leave the Newspaper Industry where I have worked since a teenager. I have always wanted to have my own business so with the big  4 0  fast approaching it was now or never. Some might say a midlife crisis? but no I am determined to make this happen.

With two young children Ollie, six and Lewis just 18 months I wanted to have more time with them so what better way than working for yourself and making your own decisions. Choosing which days I will be working and not feeling like I am missing out on them growing up.

So life in October has become very exciting. We’ve had a family holiday and now I am refreshed, ready for the challenges ahead. I know it won’t be an easy ride probably many up’s and many down’s  along the way. But what’s more important for me is that I am the happiest I have been for years.

I love my family but I love my job so now I have got the best of both worlds.

So if you know anyone getting married or would like a family portrait then please get in touch.

Thanks for reading and here is to plenty more blogs.
