Here are some photos which I photographed while attending the monthly Snapper Squad meeting at Hanley’s Masonic Centre which is run by The Sentinel, a newspaper covering news in Stoke-on-Trent. The model I photographed was Fiona, she got dressed in three sets of different themed clothes, each carefully showcasing her beautiful tattoos or body art. The whole session took around an hour and a half. Fiona was such a poised model, making sure she gave each one of us her attention and kept moving about. I have done a short demo video clip of our fun session, there are also quite a number of photos on this page and lots more on my facebook page.
Here are some photos which I photographed at the last Snapper Squad Meeting which was held at the Masonic Centre in Hanley. Mark Scott who is a freelance photographer with Leek Post, The Sentinel and other publications gave us some lighting tips using various props such as coloured flash gels, grid and honeycomb flash modifier as well as wireless flash triggers. The model for the day was Jeniffer who was very professional and posed tirelessly while we all took turns photographing her.
I love Autumn! As a photographer, I love the four seasons as it gives me a varied backdrop to capture beautiful images of couples and families. Although Autumn reminds me that winter months are coming soon, which I personally don’t look forward too due to the cold. I still love Autumn season the best as there is still something so breathtaking about the colours and the landscape. I photographed this beautiful family sometime in January this year when we did the winter themed photoshoot and they contacted me again for another portrait session, this time to capture the Autumn colours. We decided to head to Knypersley Pool to get the best backdrop and varied landscapes. Hope you enjoy viewing these images.
Here’s a recent family portrait which I photographed in Knypersley, all photos were taken at the family’s home. The kids felt very relaxed as they were home and had a good time during the session. I wanted to showcase the connection which both the siblings had and how much they loved each other. I am sure you would agree that I managed to do that in this shoot. Feel free to contact us if you would like a similar session done in your home. Gift certificates are now also available for £50 and £100 if you would like to gift someone this opportunity to capture some amazing and candid photos which they can keep for the rest of their lives.

Here’s a Engagement Portrait Session which I photographed for a couple who recently got engaged. They received a gift voucher for an hour long Portrait session as their Engagement present from one of their family member. They decided for me to photograph them at a local park in Biddulph, Staffordshire. Once the photos were edited, the couple were given a wide selection of photos to choose from an online gallery. I also edited the images into black and white as well, these images can be found on my facebook page under ‘Family Engagement Portrait Session‘. Hope you enjoy viewing these photos and feel free to contact me if you need to purchase gift vouchers as a present for someone you know or book a similar session for yourself. Moments captured for a lifetime.
Here are some beautiful newborn photos which I photographed recently in Cheadle at a newborn photography refresher workshop, you can read more about it on my previous blog titled Newborn Photography – Part 1. There were 2 babies whom I photographed, the first was a girl called Lily about 12 days old while the second baby was a boy called Noah, he was just 7 days old. Both the babies settled easily and were just adorable to photograph. Working with newborn takes a lot of patience, photographing them is the easy part but settling them, that takes lots of time and experience as each baby is different. Newborns are very delicate, yet very agile when they are born, so its best to photograph them 14 days or under to be able to mould them into the shape that you want. Here are some of my favourite photos captured from the session. If you would like similar ones done for yourself, friends or family member and are based around Staffordshire or East Cheshire area, please contact us. We offer gift certificates to be presented as gifts to pregnant mums or during their baby showers. Precious Moments, Captured Forever.
Here’s a themed photo shoot which I photographed recently in Staffordshire. The theme was Alice in Wonderland, based on a novel written in 1865 by an English mathematician Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym of Lewis Carroll. It tells of a girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar creatures. We recreated this fantasy themed tea party with the help of some props and cakes in the woods. Here is a collage of some of the images, do scroll down further to see more images.
Portrait shoots like this are so much fun for children as they get to choose the theme, get involved in the planning, preparation of the props and bring their favourite characters to life. These sessions brings the kid’s imagination to life as it keeps them excited throughout the shoot. Themed portraits can be booked directly by yourself for your kids or you can purchase them as a gift certificate for a family or friend. Please contact me through my website or facebook page regarding how to purchase gift certificates, pricing, booking availability, theme ideas or any other questions and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
