It’s so beautiful to see some of the ways my dear client and friend Kim Morrison has been using the photos from our Paris photo shoot - and amazing to see the launch of her new book The Art of Self Love!

I am honoured to see one of our photographs on its cover - it just glows with her beautiful energy as do the magazine spreads below.

It’s such a joy to follow my clients journeys after all we do together, to be a part of capturing it is a real pleasure! Kim is one of the kindest, most inspiring and beautiful women I have the pleasure of knowing 💙 You can see more photos from our shoot on the blog here.

I believe if you’re really wanting to increase your visibility and attract quality PR opportunities it’s so important to have a bank of personal brand photography ready that you feel confident with so that you’re all set when they come along, to share your message and story.

Happy New Year!

As we come to the end of the year, I'd love to thank you for your business and support and share a few of my highlights with you!

February saw me flying across the world to join an amazing photography-business workshop with photographer Jonathan Canlas in Hawaii! It was a huge step up for me to achieve this goal, which at some times felt totally out of reach... But I made it, I learned so much and made some great friendships with other photographers around the world.

How wonderful to be chosen to be the wedding photographer for some awesome couples in Oxford, London and Surrey. It was an honour to capture more beautiful weddings and special moments for my amazing clients and their families.

Including an impromptu wedding harlem shake...!

On a hot and sweaty day in July I found myself in a London studio shooting a cover for an online magazine with Vince Kidd, an artist from the first series of talent show The Voice.

Loved shooting more fashion work for the worlds leading modelling agencies with talent in London and Los Angeles!

And shot some of London Fashion Week!

I photographed more charity events for Handbags-For-Hospices and AIDSArk which included shooting an intimate fund-raising dinner at Graham Nortons London home!

I was beyond thrilled to be invited to shoot abroad this year! I travelled to beautiful Paris for a special family portrait session with one of my cherished 2012 wedding clients - it was such a pleasure to catch up with them and capture the next part of their story with their gorgeous baby boy, spending the whole day exploring their favourite parts of town!

I also shot a really cool up and coming band Wild China in Fuerteventura! It was so great to shoot in a totally different kind of environment and do something so creative... It was so inspiring and I can't wait to be able to share the photos! I'm excited to have been booked for more destination shoots next year! Yay!

I worked with more fantastic entrepreneurial men and women, capturing soulful and engaging portraits for their businesses. I love helping my clients to relax into the session, taking the fear away from being photographed and bring out the passion they have for what they do... Creating photos that they are proud to use!

So what have you been up to this year? I'd love to hear your highlights!

You can keep up to date with my offers and adventures on my blog here, or you can find me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!

I look forward to keeping in touch with you in the new year and wish you a beautiful 2014! xxx

Dreaming of Ventenac... Featured on Entouriste

It was so good to return to beautiful Chateau Ventenac in the South of France earlier this Autumn for a personal development retreat hosted by my amazing mum Ali Soleil.

I shot lots of personal work and was thrilled to have the images featured on the gorgeous travel website Entouriste! I've been loving this site for months and it is wonderful to see my work on there too!

Check out my feature on Entouriste here to read more about the trip!

Radio Appearance on Marlow FM

Earlier this month I was invited to come in to Marlow FM to join Sarah Hunt on her late morning show with co-host Sue Ing-Simmons! It was a last minute thing and I was really excited to step up and come in for my radio debut! :) The theme of the show that week was 'The Outdoors', so on the day Sarah asked me to share a few tips with her listeners on how to get the most out of your shots when working outside.

In almost all of my work I use natural light, either working outdoors or with window light, so I had lots of insights and ideas to give from my experience, and we had a chat about lots of other things photography related in between.

Click the link below to hear the fab show, and my inappropriate choice of song request! ...I am defending my love of Hot Chip here - I just said to Sarah off air "play anything by Hot Chip" which may not have been totally appreciated by their listeners when 'Careful' came on! Oh god...)

Thanks so much to everyone who tweeted, texted and typed to us on Facebook, I was so grateful for your support after I mentioned that I was on Marlow FM on my twitter and Facebook page!
