So I’ve had a pretty wonderful end to the week, and I’m pretty chuffed about that! In true British fashion I do feel rather weird shouting about it (I’m told I’ve assimilated pretty well, haha!) but it really is exciting so here it goes! :)

I’d found out I was placed in the Top 10 Documentary Family Photographers in the World according to FPJA (Family Photojournalists Association), at number 7 to be exact.

I’m also the only UK-based photographer in the Top 10, so I guess that makes me Top UK Documentary Family Photographer – and that’s pretty cool, really! :)

The ranking is based on the contests FPJA ran throughout 2018, with images awarded points by some of the big names in the photography industry, including Pulitzer-prize winning photojournalists, and I’m very proud to be in the top 10 among some other incredibly talented photographers.

I know I couldn’t have done this without all the families that trusted me to document their life adventures beautifully and honestly, and were prepared to be open and vulnerable in front of my lens, so thank you!

Here’s an even more exciting bit:

To celebrate me finishing off 2018 on this incredible professional high, I’m offering 20% off all session fee purchases from today until Black Friday (that’s November 23rd 2018).

I’m now almost fully booked for the remainder of 2018 but you can still purchase a session for yourself and tentatively schedule it for 2019 (with an exact date to be confirmed later) or purchase one as a gift for a loved one (I’ll even send you a pretty card to put under the Christmas tree). A gift certificate is valid for the whole year so plenty of time to schedule a date in. I pretty much never run sales, so if a family shoot is in your plans for the next year don’t miss this one!

Simply ping me a message to request the full brochure, and I’ll take it from there!

And don’t forget to share this with all your friends too!
