Branding Session | Organic Market Garden | Sedgefield

This group session was a little different from my normal family/group photo shoots because instead of frolicking in a field of wild flowers or running wild and free on the beach, this group (Juan, Katja, Waldo, Tilani & Simon the dog) wanted to be photographed harvesting their full moon crop of fresh leafy greens from… Continue reading Branding Session | Organic Market Garden | Sedgefield

3 Tips – How to Prepare for a Summer Maternity Shoot

Baby Session | m + f | Sedgefield

No one is ever quite ready; everyone is always caught off guard. Parenthood chooses you. And you open your eyes, look at what you've got, say "Oh, my gosh," and recognize that of all the balls there ever were, this is the one you should not drop.
