Here’s one of my favourite engagement sessions from last fall. What better way to spend an unseasonably warm holiday afternoon than walking around the Freemason area of Norfolk, photographing a beautiful couple? As soon as we began, Nina and Charlie were totally laid-back and comfortable with the camera, and some of my most favourite images […]

As my camera bag shrinks in my constant pursuit to minimize my equipment overhead, it’s getting more difficult to find room for these little treasures. But scanning […]
