2017 {Newborn and family photographer, Surrey}

They say that when you find your passion you'll never work another day in your life and I've found this to be amazingly true since starting my business just over a year ago. I've met so many lovely people - both new clients and fellow photographers - attended some inspiring workshops, won four Bronze Awards in the The Guild of Photographers Image of the Month competition, as well as having my work featured several times on The Teabreak Tog community pages.

I'm really proud of my achievements this year and I thank each and every person who has liked or commented on my work or referred me to a friend. Your support means so much to me. I'm especially grateful to all the wonderful families I've had the joy of photographing throughout the year - it's been a huge honour to capture so many memories for you. It's impossible to share something from absolutely every session but here are just a few of my favourites from the year...

Awards from The Guild of Photographers {Award winning family photographer, Surrey}

When I started my photography journey the idea of winning an award from a professional body as highly regarded as The Guild of Photographers seemed like a dream. So I'm absolutely thrilled that within just a year of launching my family photography business I have achieved not one but three awards in The Guild's Image of the Month (IOM) national competition. The competition receives hundreds of entries every month and so to be recognised with these Awards is both humbling and something that I'm really proud of...

I look forward to entering more of my photographs in The Guild's IOM competition over the coming months and years and I'm very thankful for the recognition and support I've gained so far. With hard work and determination it appears that some dreams really can come true!

At home family photography session in Purley {Family photographer, Purley}

I love being invited to photograph families in their homes as it's such a perfect way to truly immerse myself in the family environment and capture those really lovely moments of connection. Before too long all those little games your kids enjoy and those funny little quirks become a distant memory and so being able to freeze the moment is so special.

I had so much fun with this family. We started out in the playroom where the children showed me their favourite toys and read stories with mum and dad. When the sun came out we headed into the garden for some swing action. So relaxed, so real - just a family doing what they normally would on a Saturday morning. Here are a few of my favourite images from our time together...

A beautiful Cheam christening {Christening and baptism photographer, Cheam}

I was so happy to be invited to photograph the christening of this gorgeous boy after having met his parents at another family celebration back in May. After a beautiful baptism ceremony at Saint Christopher's Catholic Church in Cheam, the celebrations continued with a gorgeous garden party on what turned out to be a lovely sunny afternoon. I had such a great time capturing the fun and festivities of the day. I even found a beautiful patch of light just behind the marquee to take some lovely portraits of the family and their guests. Here are a few favourites from the day...
