Sherrol's Shoot













I've been threatening my niece, Sherrol, that I'd do her portfolio shoot for some time now, and eventually we got it all together tonight thanks to Lena at Casblanca. Lena and I spent a while doing photographer stuff with lights-well it gives US a buzz anyway!- and then with Sherrol experimented with some new and old poses. I like the results and I'm sure my baby brother's little girl(hardly- 6'3" in her heels!) will too!

Kimberley and Andrew










Saturday posed us with a bit of a problem...we'd arranged a preshoot with Kimberley and Andrew, and the weather was glorious, then as the time approached, the sea fret rolled in and left us with misty, murky conditions. Undaunted, we spent a while at Tynemouth capturing some relaxed shots of the couple. There were lots of kids, dogs and jetskiers around, which added to the fun, but we managed to find a few little spaces to ourselves. I'd promised Kimberley blue skies, and didn't want to disappoint...so I created one of our very own. Ah the miracle of Photoshop!

Cara and Dale

Seaburn and Roker presented us with a fabulous day for the wedding of Cara and Dale yesterday. After a beautiful ceremony at St Benet's RC Church, we set off to capture some romantic moments along the seafront at Seaburn, one of my favourite romantic places! This was followed by a couple portrait session in one of the Sunderland Marriott's feature corner rooms, with a wonderful panoramic view of the coast. Later we photographed the evening reception and touching first dance- the last photograph isn't a slick dance move-it's the moment where Cara and Dale invited their cherubic son Daniel to join them, making the family complete! Thanks Dale and Cara and your family for a lovely day. Enjoy your Jamaica trip!

Kiki's April

Another busy day at Kiki's Kabin, although the glorious weather seemed to have kept the crowds away.Those who visited the Kabin were, however, charming and well-behaved (and that was just the parents!) See below some of the day's images.

Nicola and Darren










Busy busy again today, off with Ian, and today's stars Nicola and Darren for their wedding preshoot at Headlam Hall. I'd never visited Headlam Hall before and was stunned by its surroundings and decor. We spent an hour taking photos in the hall and grounds, and then Ian and I had to tear ourselves away, as we could have spent all day photographing details. The star of the day- Issy, Nicola and Darren's beautiful terrier- she stole the frames!

A Corker of a day
