I can’t believe that the year is almost over, I probably say that every year but this one really does seem to of gone so fast! 

2017 has been a wonderful year for my little photography business and I feel so grateful for that. I always like to look back over the last 12 months and check I have reached the goals I have set, see what I could of done better and what I have learned which helps me set new targets for the coming year. 

One of the goals I set myself was to push further and step out of my comfort now more often. This was important to me because in 2016 I felt I was working for the sake of it and not actually loving each job. This year I have said no to things which don’t interest me and really push into new areas and different ways of working, its resulted in longer hours but I have learned so much.

So looking over 2017 what are my favourite bits? 

I have created more campaigns for clients this year than any previously, campaign work takes months of planning and can be stressful to get right. I normally create around 2 to 3 per year, but this year has seen a boom in storytelling for me. They have been so much fun with each one has being so different, it has really pushed my creativity which has been great!

Here are some of my favourites…

Look books have also been plentiful with so many different ones which I have loved planning and working with my awesome teams of people for each of them. Fashion and editorial shoots there has been so many. My favourite fashion story I shot for myself has to be this… 

Another favourite story was with the twins shot in low light in late summer…

Editorial wise there have been two published stories this year which really stand that I have had the pleasure in creating..

In 2017 I have had more work for brands through Instagram than any previous year. Creating content for social media has been very rewarding and very different for me. Something I have really loved was getting back into styling, creating scenes and flat lays for brands. Its been so much fun creating stories for each all the lovely brands I have worked for this year. 


Also this year has brought me some lovely portrait commissions from commercial head shots to lifestyle memories.

Part of my work is weddings as you know, I’ve actually lost count of how many gorgeous brides I have had the pleasure of photographing this year. I wish all my bride and grooms a very Merry Christmas. 

Here are just a few… 

My favourite bridal styled shoot was this one …

This year I had an adventure of a lifetime with my Mum in Canada which was just magical. There are way too many awesome things that actually happened this year. With 2018 already looking to be even bigger and better I can not wait!  

Thank you for all your support through 2017 and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
