Normally every year for as long as I can remember we have had lovely sunny, simpson cloud days out at Sutton Bonington Show, this year, it was a little wet and maybe the start of the September that we have got used to with umbrella's and sunshine a predominant feature, can't complain as a photographer, grey clouds can add drama and we all know I love drama!

Matching Tablecloths
August 31, 2017 05:12 PM Hot off the Lens
I'm lucky as my work is so varied and I get to photograph lots of different things. Whilst photographing his really cute baby girl I met a chap called Richard Preston. Richard owns Doreen Preston and Son a business his mum set up quite some time ago and he now runs. He is one of the UK's largest suppliers of vinyl tablecloths. You know the type, they are very durable, you can wash, scrub or wipe them and you get to see them in a lot of cafe's and restaurants, that's ......

So, after spending a late dusky summer afternoon in a garden, forest and church photographing the wedding dresses and separates from Bride Diva. We were reduced to a rapidly fading sky and not a lot of light left to show off one of the wonderful wedding corsetts reliving its life with a more casual attire. Who says you can't wear your wedding dress again?Two dilemma's....fading light....and how to go from a wedding dress set to a night out look in Wendy's back garden. So cue ......

Bob n Bob two delightful gardeners from Norfolk appeared at Beaumont Shopping Centre today to make the place beautiful with blossoms and their comical antics. Its so much fun watching the kids get caught up in the entertainment and even better watching two very talented street performers work their magic.

Feeling proud...Becky Lewis
July 28, 2017 06:29 PM Hot off the Lens
I'm feeling proud, just like a mum, but I'm not a mum, I'm a boss. At least that's what Becky calls me when she introduces me to her fellow students. I've just attended Becky's end of year exhibition and I am so very proud of everything that she has achieved. I met this shy, pretty and quiet girl when she was barely touching her teens and now that same lady can organise and co-ordinate shoots, models, studio briefs and weddings with confidence, ease and knowledge. ......
Hedge Hugging - Only at Beaumont Shopping Centre!
July 27, 2017 06:22 PM Hot off the Lens
Its not every day that you get to meet Human Hedges, but that is exactly what happened to us at Captcha on Wednesday of this week at Beaumont Shopping Centre. Human Hedges (Ed and Imogen) had been booked to welcome shoppers, but I was so very surprised when it became a hedge hugging day. Our human hedges have just come back from Dubai and are off to Belgium next week and have also spent a weekend at a major celebrities wedding (sorry folks can't reveal that one!) and they are at ......
East Leake Academy - Schools out...for some!
July 19, 2017 03:51 PM Hot off the Lens
t was lovely watching the excitement and whoops of all the staff and teachers from East Leake Academy on Friday night saying goodbye to the pupils at the East Leake Academy prom. I guess when you've got to know kids over a number of years and watched them grown, develop, change and blossom then it really can be like a bird waving goodbye to its chick! And...with a prom there is no school tie or jacket or rushing to get yourself together for school start time. With a prom, ......

I love it when East Leake Community comes out and the Year 6 prom is becoming exactly that. Friends came from surrounding villages, 9 and 10 year olds came to see what was going to happen to them. Grandparents visited and the traffic nearly came to a stand still. But it all came together with huge success, so lovely to see the different modes of transport, horse and carriages, open top buses, sports cars. All dealt with brilliantly by our marshalls and Prom Security.The securit ......

No, not the musical proms, but the end of school...moving on proms! Time to dress up in all your finery and celebrate end of school, a time of relaxing, dancing and fun.

The East Leake Carnival, this year, although missing my MC-buddy Tracey Waterfield (who had taken an amazing holiday for a big birthday) I was accompanied by Tracey's daughter Lucy. Lucy I've known since she turned double digits, I've spend lots of happy days rehearsing with Elaps, we've acted together and had romantic involvements when she was Ali ......

Ceramic Artist Sara Budzik on snails...

One thing for sure, as a photographer no day is ever the same. What I like most about my job is the variety of work, meeting new people, animals and some amazing Ceramic art that was so very beautifully crafted it was an absolute pleasure to photograph.I was delighted this week when local Textile Artist Sara Budzik brought in her latest creation - a family of Snails. No, not pets but snails that she had created from ceramics, textured, painted and glazed and so very true to life. &nbs ......
"Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory" - Dr Seuss

Sadly 8 years ago I lost my brother Dean, to a brain tumour. He was one of the most kindest, considerate, warm and generous people I had the pleasure of knowing. We miss him all the time. Dean's Children are 12, 10 and 8 were very young when he left us, but his memories and everything he was and did adorn all our homes as prints either in frames or albums, he is everywhere. When coming back from holiday one of the children said that they were glad t ......

Its just as exciting as Christmas
March 28, 2017 11:59 AM Hot off the Lens
Its funny the memories that jump back at you from your childhood. A lot are evoked from photographs and images and old cine film. One of my favourites was the day I was bridesmaid to my Aunty Christine. It was a day just like Christmas, there was a build up, not sleeping the night before and so excited by putting on the dress and white frilly apron (it was the 70's!) and being at the hairdressers for ringlets (a first). The day was amazing, I felt like a princess, th ......
