This is Cooper, his mum and his mum’s best friend. I get a lot of babies in the studio but he’s got to be one of my favourite. He’s so good, always smiling and has a way with the ladies that makes every single one of them want to kiss or pinch his cheeks. Poor lad!Cooper and his amazing cheeks.


An image of my boys this week. My 8 year old son does not enjoy spending time in front of the me he would rather hide behind it.. unlike his lime light grabbing little sister! Today I managed to persuade him to stand in the perfect place for a fraction of a second …you can see one foot is up and he is ready to time to make a lovely father and son image. Working with children and families I am used to planning ahead, thinking of what will make the best frame and using all my powers of persuasion.

The sun is now shining on Cornwall and it’s back to business as usual. Apart from being cut off from the rest of England by rail, which some locals are arguing is a good thing! It’s hard to believe that just a few days ago, this was the view of the harbour mouth from Readymoney Cove.

Sid the kitten is venturing outside and his favourite climbing frame is now the pile of prunings from my apple tree. I am trying to get as many pictures as I can before he really grows up.

A first for me this week – a night safari with the family – very exciting. We explored all kinds of new creatures who’s little eyes glowed in the dark and heard all kinds of noises. But before we even got into the park we were greeted to an amazing fire breathing display. Sadly I’d been busy ordering and carrying the food to our table so only had time for a last minute grab for a shot before the show ended. Here he is complete with tribal get up ūüėČ

Half term is about catching up with friends old and new. Here is my oldest friend’s daughter and my daughter – making their own friendship, just like we had ours.
