Not my day job…

So I have been promising some cuddly animal photos since I got back from the wedding I shot at Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, so here you are. Some of them aren’t quite so cuddly. It was a bit of a break from the normal day to day and I won’t be shooting for National Geographic […]

Why family photos are awesome!!!

I love photographs. Just as well I decided to be a photographer, isn’t it? Images connect us to our past. They inspire us and show us who we are and where we came from, so not lots of words on this post…but maybe a few of tears. This is the start of a personal project […]
