How it all began - Happy Anniversary Ben and Lou

A year ago today Ben and Louise got married and I was there as a guest. There this whole journey began. This was the first time I really used my DLSR that had been bought conspiratorially by my husband, family and friends in a big secret collective birthday/Christmas present. I loved the process of seeing their wedding this way and being able to present the photos as a gift to them afterwards. 

And so began the Big Idea ... to perhaps pursue doing this a bit more.

Happy one year anniversary Belliot and Lelliot - thanks for all the encouragement along the way.

Sarah and Fintan Engaged

This is Sarah and Fintan. They get married this very Saturday and were the first people to ask me to do their photos. So back in May we headed out on a blustery day into the hills of Sheffield to have a little practice run ... an engagement shoot if you like. This is a spot they go to often to get away from it all.

I'm looking forward to Saturday and seeing them dressed up all pretty - photos from that will appear here sometime soon ...

Away we go

So ... I've taken the plunge and set up a blog. About time, some might say.
This is where I'll post up what I've been getting up to - an ongoing portfolio charting my both-feet-first jump into all things photography.
I've been procrastinating over having a website ... it feels so public ... but that's where I shall repeat my mantra of 'get on with it' and just, well, get on with it. So ... because of the delay in getting started, I'll spend a bit of time going back over the last year sharing such highlights as; my first ever wedding, my second ever wedding, my husband with his head in the clouds. I bet you can't wait.
In the meantime, here is a photo of me to get going.
