'Do you ever sit and daydream trying to reminisce
about all the little things gone by and some you probably missed?' - Steven Spall

as long as we remember it' - L.M.Montgomery
Photographs are a very important part of our lives and are nearly always our most prized possessions (ask a fireman which possession is the first thing a person will try to save during a fire) also they are one of the things we take most for granted.
Before you know it life has passed us by and this is when we realise and also wish we had more quality photographs to reflect on our wonderful life. Time goes by so quickly and we don’t realise this when we are young, I have only a handful of photos from the age of 0 to 18. This is one thing I wish I had much more of but know that neither money nor time can bring that to me.
When my daughter was born in 2003 I vowed to make sure she would have her childhood recorded in great detail, so much so, that she now runs a mile when she sees me with a camera in my hand!!! She might think I am a pain right now because she doesn't realise the importance, but I can bet you your bottom dollar she will be eternally grateful when she is older. I have always had a passion for capturing the moment, capturing that split second of joy and being able to bring it to life, so that the moment can be relived again and again. All these fabulous moments we have in life can only be retold in full by being captured, displayed and then giving us the opportunity to hand down to our grandchildren.
I would very much like to be a part of capturing your memories so that you have them to reflect upon and pass down to your family generations. This is not just about me taking photographs for a job, I take it very personally due to my past and want to ensure that you have the highest quality images that you can enjoy for the rest of your life. Prior to even getting my camera out I would like to spend a little time with you, get to know you a little better and find out what you are looking for from the shoot. This way we can tailor our journey together and create the images that you will love and cherish. I shoot on location and love our scenic countryside, living in the beautiful Ribble Valley with so many stunning locations it would almost be a crime to shoot in a studio.
Me and ‘Our Kid’
A little about me personally - I enjoy walking, cycling, the great outdoors and most sports, especially skiing as it is great to feel that freedom of the mountains with no restrictions on where you can go. Spending time with my family is most important to me, all together, enjoying the adventure of life, exploring, learning, discovering, taking on new challenges, and most of all laughing and having fun with each other.
It is my aim to capture as many of these memories as possible so when I’m grey and old I will be able to relive them again and again, and also pass them down to my future generations.
I hope you enjoy your visit to my site and I would love to be able to create some of your memories in the future.
Please don't be shy, give me a call, even if it’s only for a friendly chat.
