Three reasons to hire a Professional Photographer

We live in a digital age. Smartphones and tablets give us the ability to take photographs of anything at any time. Recent figures show 67% of parents take photographs of their children every week, with 9% of these snapping away on a daily basis. Your camera roll is probably full of children’s photos, pictures at the park, visiting family or just playing at home with toys. It is also a sad fact that the most photographed generation will have no photographs in 10 years’ time. As a Newborn and Children Photographer in Cheshire, my job is to make sure that the portraits that are taken today can be cherished for generations to come. Although technology has given us a fantastic opportunity to c

A letter from one mama to another

This was revolutionary at the time because every other camera used a film to store the images and then the roll of film would be sent off to a developer. About a week later, your photographs would land on your doorstep. Can you imagine that now? I don't think people would be so patient to wait that long to view their photographs. Technology has allowed everyone to take photographs every single day, documenting their life. And if the photo is unflattering, bad light or out of focus, we just delete. The

Is it time to hit the pause button on life?

Life is busy, day-to-day life can be manic. A week passes, then a month, a year and in what seems like the blink of an eye, a whole year has passed. Before you know it, your little ones aren’t so little anymore. I urge you to hit the pause button and take time out to capture those moments before they are gone forever.
