Rebecca - Part 2

I think I may be heading into a bit of a Black and White phase...

Rebecca's orange hair is amazing but I like this moody shot and think it definitely works better in B&W.

Take care

A selection of photos of Rebecca taken at Virginia Waters near Windsor last weekend.

Love her hair!

Take care

I've been working on my web site quite a bit lately. Hopefully the results will become visible soon, but since I am completely replacing the original hand-coded version with one powered by WordPress it is taking some time.

So, just to have a bit of a break I thought I'd photograph my daughters new teddy. :)

Take care!

Farewell Nutmeg

Had to say goodbye to Nutmeg last night. At seventeen she has been around for a long time. She, and her "sister" Coffee were here before me, as Lorna likes to remind me, so they were part of the deal. Fortunately they seemed to like me, and Lorna let me stay.

This shot is from almost five years ago and she is in her favourite place, on the back of the sofa in the living room. I will certainly miss her incredibly loud purring in my ear whilst I was trying to watch TV. And the occasional surprise when she fell asleep and fell off her perch onto my shoulders!

She wasn't supposed to go into the bedroom, but for a while now her morning routine has been to sneak in, quietly jump up on the bed, and snuggle in. We pretended not to notice. Maybe she thought that, at her age, she had every right to sleep wherever she pleased. Maybe she was right.

Going to miss you Nutmeg.

Models: Amber, Ella and Frankie
Hair and MUA: Tracey West
Photography: Richard Danter

Starting the new year off with a bang!

I am really excited to be able to share some of the photos from a recent shoot for Twirl By Night in Petersfield. With a new range of Prom and Evening Wear just released I was asked to photograph a number of dresses for the web site.

We had three wonderful models in Amber, Ella and Frankie. Tracey did a great job with the hair and makeup too. Thanks also to our team of assistants who helped the girls get changed, moved furniture, held reflectors and did all the other jobs which need to be done for a successful shoot.

I have a feeling 2013 is going to be a very interesting year!

More soon.
