A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to work with an amazing stylist Mary Kei and the very talented lighting guru Selva. Mary Kei and Selva were kind enough to offer a day of their EID holiday to shoot with me. I have been shooting food at home the last year with natural light but I lack the experience of shooting food in the studio with lighting set ups. We made a plan to use 2 sets – one tungsten lighting and one studio flash. I enjoyed using both lighting setups but boy to prefer natural light still! I love the images we came away with and am very proud to feature them in my portfolio, I must say if I had to choose I would use the flash set up! Read More
One of the most favoured breakfast food in our house is pancakes! My girls love them especially with fresh berries such as blueberries.

My eldest daughter came home from school super chuffed with herself that she loved something new that she tasted in school – lemon curd, so we had to get some! Instead of buying some we made some together and helping mummy in the kitchen is always fun!

There are some pretty amazing benefits from eating lemons, here are just a few……Read More

I love to make a big batch of soup and freeze it for later. Read More
The last six months, maybe more I have questioned my abilities, what I am good at, what I want to shoot and what makes me happy. I have loved shooting weddings the last few years and find myself more and more interested in the detail shots of the bride’s shoes, dress and flowers more appealing than the portraits – maybe I’m not cut out for people all the time!Read More
Marco Pierre White Grill Restaurant at The Conrad
I had the pleasure of going along to the new Conrad Hotel in Dubai to shoot some of their new festive dishes as well as get some new pictures of Marco Pierre while he was visiting. We have to tell you the food smelled amazing and we all wanted to devour it rather than shoot it!
