Getting back to busy!

2020, you've been a rollercoaster! Over the past month, I've felt like we've started to get back to some normality, however, by the sounds of the announcements yesterday, we're far from going back to normal.

We had a massive low last month when Nick got made redundant, however, on the flipside, he's now set up a business working with his former Creative Director Chris, teaming together to develop RealmVR! There are many strings to their business so make sure you take a look, especially at their 3D interactive Virtual Tours - https://realmvr.co.uk/gallery/ Love having a nosey around these buildings ;)

So keeping on the bright side of work, we've been incredibly excited to have 6 wedding bookings in the past 2 months! We've had some lovely chats with our new couples over Zoom, we're so pleased that you've chosen us to photograph your big day!


We're continuing to take bookings for 2022, fingers crossed no one else has to make any changes for 2021! Work has slowly started to happen again, it's so wonderful to be back behind my camera!

We've had 2 newborn photoshoots in home studios in July; little Rory & Emilia both beautiful and very smiley.

We also had a lovely opportunity to photograph Jess & Tom's engagement photoshoot at Trentham Gardens. It was a lovely afternoon but we did get caught in the rain by the end! That's the British Summer, though, right?


With any of our weddings, we always give a free engagement photo shoot. It's a lovely way to get to know more about our couples and also reassure you both when under the spotlight :) We know it can be unnerving, but rest assured, we just want you to relax, have fun together, with plenty of laughter - fingers crossed Jess & Tom did :)

Stepping into the commercial role we've had portraits to photograph for existing business websites and new business ventures. It's so nice to see businesses doing well and developing their social role online, especially in the current climate.

This was for Axis Professional, a lovely company based in Sandbach, to help with professional Legal support. Also, a company I work closely with: Envisage Associates, who have just launched their new website and are working on various avenues to develop their expertise.

Thanks again for stopping by and fingers crossed next time I don't have to mention 2020 again! None of us will forget this year! Be seeing you soon
