Jess and Mark – Jesmond Dene Engagement Shoot – Newcastle Wedding Photographer

Jess & Mark decided to have their engagement shoot at Jesmond Dene as it is one of their favourite family places to visit.

Beach family fun – Northumberland children’s photographer

“You must take lots of pictures of your children”. As a family and children’s photographer, I hear this statement quite a lot! And yes, I guess I do take lots of pictures of them, but sadly these days, it seems to be mainly on my phone. However, a family day out at Druridge Bay Country Park […]

Family Portrait – Three Generations at Wallington, Northumberland

It seems a bit strange blogging about a winter shoot in the middle of May, but I’m in the process of catching up on all of my sessions, and the less-than-summery weather outside my window now, provided me with a gentle reminder… Back in January, I was invited to the beautiful Wallington National Trust property […]

Rain didn’t stop play when I went to photograph this lovely family at their home in Northumberland. After taking some shots of the three boys indoors, the older brothers were impatient to get their wellies and coats on and head out into the garden. We’d only been outside for a short while, when the rain […]
