You've saved the day for them, done the unexpected, comforted and loved them unconditionally. Now I can't play an instrument so I can't produce a unique hero theme tune! But as a portrait photographer, I shoot modern portraits to capture the story of YOU and those that are YOURS. Real moments, in the lives of real heroes who are real people.

read more › Studio portraits are something I really enjoy shooting. The sessions series begins with "this is ME", focusing attention on growth and individual beauty. We are all subject to the twists and turns of life. Usually, after we have achieved something or have overcome an unexpected challenge, we uncover hidden strengths or undefined talents - that we never knew we had. That discovery can do wonders for our self-esteem, give us a renewed sense of who we are and an acknowledgment of what we are capable of.

Matted prints, museum style mega size and real Italian Leather folio boxes are the ideal way to preserve these images and various options are available. I provide these with music allowing you to upload to your social media site or anywhere online. These can be used as great markers for your growing relationship or as demonstrated with Nathanael and Shanice's wedding, used to play back on your wedding day, anniversary or given as a keepsake for relatives.

They fire up so many memories and because of them I have learned about family members and connections in a way that words can't convey. Can you relate to that? Are you a parent who can talk for hours about the different characters of each of your children and the great experiences you have had while their personalities are forming? Are you keen to preserve those memories?

After all the planning, the expense and the emotional investment, your wedding day memories deserve to be captured with integrity and care. I mix documentary wedding photography with a contemporary feel. This ensures your images are true to the unfolding of your day while featuring a creative element that makes for a beautiful re-telling of your love story.

Shooting male portraits requires a different approach to shooting women. Shaun and I had a great time shooting this session in the studio a few months ago and captured some great images. Although the lighting setups are almost identical there are key posing rules to remember that make male portraits visually pop and impress. I detail a few of these male posing tips here in this post.

I wanted professional photos taken to promote my business.
