Yesterday I gathered together this little collection of images from my year. I hadn’t planned to do one of these posts to be honest, I’ve been so busy looking forward lately, making plans for the year ahead… but then I started looking back through my photographs and realised I wanted to say thank you, to all the people and places and moments I found staring back at me.

Turns out that looking back as well as forwards was a good move, because last night I celebrated the arrival of the new year with my head and heart full of the brilliant people I’ve met so far, and everyone who has helped me along the way. That last bit is really important actually, I am ridiculously lucky to have the friends and family that I do, so this is a thank you to all of them too. And without a certain boy prising me away from the screen to eat his amazing dinners I would most probably have turned into a baked bean by now.

A great big thank you to everyone who asked me to take pictures for them… I still can’t quite believe how lucky I am to be found by such lovely people.

I’ll be posting some more work from last year over the next couple of weeks, and you might spot a few sneak previews in amongst this lot.

Wishing you all a wonderful year ahead! Here are some of my favourite bits looking back, found in 2013.


One afternoon back in August I met Pete and Ann, whose wedding I’m photographing next year, to take some pictures of them now, just as they are.  We roamed around some gardens, giggled and then grew quiet in the green shade of the woods, and then… well, then we borrowed a barn.

I learnt that hay is not the same thing as straw, that you can find the perfect gap in the edge of a cornfield, and that Pete and Ann make each other laugh. A lot. They are also clearly and completely crazy about each other.

A big thank you to Pete and to Ann, for giving me the giggles too, and for trusting me, even when it involved mud and brambles and a field of nosy cows.
