2013 Review

December 27th, 2013

It’s that time of year again where I get to look back and reflect on what was good, what was bad and what was really, really ugly. Truth be told, 2013 has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride with many ups and downs. The first part of the year was quite difficult as I’d been struggling with my health, and although it was something I didn’t broadcast I was conscious that my business wasn’t moving as fast I wanted. I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid and unfortunately two doctors had missed it, so for three years my symptoms had been growing to the point where I just couldn’t function. I never realised that left untreated it could cause so many problems. I’d got to the point where I just thought I was suffering from stress and also generally being a bit mardy! When I was finally diagnosed it was like a huge weight had been lifted – mainly because I realised I wasn’t being mardy AND it was treatable. High fives all round! By the middle of the year when my medication had kicked in I was finally starting to feel like myself again. This was also the point where I started to push my business in a whole new direction.

Headshots {Lisa-Mary}

March 29th, 2013

I first met Lisa back in December 2012 when I was shooting stills for The Rise and Fall of Little Voice, she was so full of energy and enthusiasm. Shortly afterwards Lisa contacted me to book in for some headshots.

The session was really relaxed, which is key when having a photoshoot done, and I think it’s safe to say that Lisa’s personality shines through on these photos – she has such an amazing and infectious smile! We did a mix of indoor studio shots, and outdoor shots – here are a few of my favourites from the day….

If you’d like to book in for a headshot session, please get in touch. Prices start from £99

2012 Review……

December 22nd, 2012

So here we are, 2012 is drawing to a close which can only mean one thing – my end of year review. I’ve had an amazing year and I’ve had the pleasure of working with some fantastic people on a range of equally fantastic projects. I’ve made some lovely new friends, and not just on Facebook and Twitter but in real life too! I know! :) I’ve also had the opportunity to be part of some amazing weddings and I’ve met some truly brilliant people. If I could high five everyone I’ve had the pleasure of working with this year, I would. But you’ll all have to settle for a virtual chest bump instead! Thanks for a brilliant year – I’m looking forward to working on some new projects in 2013 ! :) In no particular order, here is my year in images……

The Rise and Fall of Little Voice…..

December 21st, 2012

Last night I had the pleasure of shooting stills for the opening night of The Rise and Fall of Little Voice at The Lantern Theatre, Liverpool. Put together by Purplecoat Productions, it’s a show not to be missed. It was near enough sold out last night, so if you’re still trying to decide what to do tonight or tomorrow, I suggest you book yourself some tickets and head over :)

Happy Friday!
