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...

Wallington at home family photography session at home {Family photographer, Wallington}

I love this time of the year but as the weather gets too chilly for even the bravest little adventurers an at home family photography session is a cosy alternative to heading outdoors.

I really enjoyed capturing this family of four in their lovely Wallington home. Mum initially just wanted some nice photos of her two girls but I always encourage parents to take advantage of the fact that I'm there so they end up with some great family portraits too! Here are a few favourites from the session...

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!

Newborn, big sister and family photography session at home {Newborn and family photographer, Wallington}

I absolutely loved photographing this lovely family in their Wallington home. Big sister warmed to me almost immediately and really enjoyed showing me her selection of favourite soft toys. While mum was busy preparing baby for the shoot, we snuck in a few lovely shots with daddy before it was snack time for big sister.  Baby was really awake for a one week old - perhaps she knew it was a special occasion? We even had an impromptu visit from the family dog which resulted in some of my absolute favourite images from the session...
