Mmmm winter...

wood fires, GREAT fashion, boots, rain, thunderstorms, hot food, cool scarves, movie marathons with my boys, the drive-in (we just love the drive-in!), rain, rain, rain and more rain :o) I'm still very excited about the rain! The best bit about winterfor me though is the light. The light is just exquisite now. Have you ever looked out the window and seen that amazing glowy light that makes the world look like it's lit with moonlight in the middle of the day? It's incredible, and such a buzz to create something beautiful with.

Winter is also a fantastic time to photograph indoors. I don't get much of a chance to do it during summer, the outside beckons, but indoor shoots are a real love of mine. I love the way I get to use light and the environment and create something for you that will forever remind you of that time and place.

This shoot was a prime example. This was the weekend we had the most rain we'd had in umpteen years. All in one weekend. I was lucky enough that the rain stopped for an hour or so, but even if it hadn't we'd have managed. We were warm and cosy while it was so miserable outside and the images show it. This is Lynette and Dave with their darling boy Liam. He was the master of many faces, all of them VERY cute.
