Family portraits at the beach are so much fun. Imagine the sand in your toes, a sea breeze, the sound of the ocean. I think they are more fun than any other type of portrait. I don't think you can do formal on the beach or running along the water's [...]

Why the half built house? When Roger and Sally and their daughters decided to have a family portrait we were originally thinking about going to somewhere like Delamere Forest. Then we got talking about their new house which was being built near Tarporley in Cheshire [...]

Here’s a story about a beautiful family portrait session at Lymm Dam.
