Family Shoot in Calderstones Park

In September I had a very special family shoot and everybody was dressed beautifully for the occasion. These are a few of my favourite pictures from the day.

Family Shoot in Greenbank Park, Liverpool

These three cousins were a hoot to shoot – the photographs were for a 50th wedding anniversary present for grandma and grandad so a quick turnaround was required to get the favourites printed up. I hope they enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed the morning!

Small Product Shoot

This is a sample of product shots which I took recently and, after a misunderstanding over the degree of whiteness of the background, had to edit again by cutting each item out using paths and placing on a 255 white background with no shadows showing. These were used on an Amazon sellers site.

Liverpool Landmarks Shoot for Website

I was commissioned to photograph famous Liverpool Landmarks for use as illustration on a high profile website. This involved getting up at the crack of dawn to get down to the Pier Head and Albert Dock to capture the most beautiful light on the buildings. I also wanted to capture night falling on the Catholic Cathedral as I had seen in other photographs that it lights up at night. I’m not sure that it actually did as much as I’d hoped but it was worth hanging around with my tripod as The Everyman across the road looked spectacular!

Getting Creative with Product Photography

Recently I Photographed some bamboo toothbrushes and straws for Amazon supplier Vector Space. By pure chance I happened to have a bamboo tree in the back yard and so I took a stem of leaves and really enjoyed getting a little creative. My client loved the photos! Amazon does stipulate that the main image is on a pure white backdrop but any other images can be more natural and those are the ones I have shown here.

A Summer Beach Shoot

In my first week back to work in June I photographed William and his brother George at Formby beach. William I first photographed when he was 18 months old and this was George’s turn to have his photograph taken. We could not have picked a better day and arrived at the beach early to avoid the crowds which was great as we had the beach to ourselves for about an hour. We then headed into the woods to take a few pictures there too. I absolutely love these photos – the colours are so striking!

Family portrait in Newton Le Willows

It’s been a while since I last posted due to being on maternity leave and this shoot I’d really hoped to get on my blog before I went on leave last August as I love the pictures so much. Better late than never though! Simon and Natalie had the most beautiful front room with amazing light and it was the perfect backdrop for their family shoot, as well as being close to a park so we used both. The twins started nursery yesterday and I’m so pleased to finally have a moment to get these pictures up.

A Spring Family Portrait Session in Liverpool

Back in March I had a lovely portrait session with the O’Connor family in Sefton Park, Liverpool and these are a few of my favourite pictures from our afternoon.

I’m adding this last shot because I love it – we all loved it – even though the kids are bawling at the end of the shoot, it’s such a funny shot and reminds me of a near identical one of my dad and me and my sister.

Commercial Shoot for Northwood Estate Agents

It’s exciting to see the image I took for Northwood Estate Agents used on their billboard ad. Currently on display on Hoole Bridge in Chester. The boys did a great job of posing in freezing temperatures at Christmas – bet they think it was worth it now!
