I met this family last summer and took some pictures in our local park for them - you can see a few of those here. May is a month of birthdays for them and with their oldest turning Three and their youngest hitting the great milestone that is One whole year out of the womb, they wanted to mark the occasion by doing something a bit fun - a cake smas...

TheMcIntosh Family - Wallington Hall, Northumberland

June 04, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
I love this family, their interactions and visiting National Trust properties. Family sessions are usually a good opportunity for a few posed family shots, then for the children to let off steam, and plenty of pictures of everyone enjoying themselves. This session involved a lot of running, climbing trees, hide and seek, practical jokes and sword f...

Peter & Ruth - Riverdale Barn Wedding, Northern Ireland

May 22, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
I've known Peter and Ruth for about 10 years - maybe more. We met in Edinburgh, when we were all students, another lifetime ago. Five years ago, Ruth was my wedding photographer. She gave us such incredible pictures that I was really quite nervous when I agreed to be their wedding photographer. But also delighted, and so excited to see them finally...

I met Ben and Becky near where my parents live, at Preston Park in Eaglescliffe. It is a lovely park with an old hall, museum and a Victorian Road as part of the museum. I've shot there before. I love it. Ben and Becky were a delight, and could not stop smiling. They love the outdoors and walk and cycle a lot. On their shoot, we walk by the river...

Rebekah and William are a super fun, easy going and happy couple. Our plan was to go to Gibside for a sunset walk around, but it turns out that the National Trust is still on winter time and it closed before we'd planned to meet. So we went to Derwent Walk Country Park a short drive away. We caught the sunset and stayed on the high road (no one too...

I had never been to the College Valley in Winter before. To see the surrounding Cheviot hills with a dusting of snow was breathtaking. I came to this gorgeous part of Northumberland, to meet Sophie and Mike who have a special attachment to this particular location - many a birthday party, family gathering, wedding, and engagement (including their o...

The Thompsons - Newcastle Family Photographer

This morning's blog post features a lovely misty January morning well spent at Saltwell Park with Chris, Angie, and their little one-year-old Frank. Frank enjoyed practicing his walking, spotting dogs, doors (his favourite word), and squirrels. He even enjoyed his snack sitting in a climbing tree that his dad used to climb when he was little. If y...
