We love spending time at Hubbard's Hills in Louth. It is one of those places where all you need is a picnic and some sunshine and you can enjoy a whole day of family fun. During summer, as we were preparing to go out for a picnic, Carl discovered a roll of expired film in a drawer, so it became the perfect excuse for a spontaneous photo shoot. We grabbed the camera, put in the film and off we went.Read More
We had the pleasure of photographing family portraits of Nicky Carly & Frank a little while back.
We shot these portraits at their Lincolnshire home. With Carly having additional needs, photographing her in her own environment helped both her and Nicky relax. It also meant we got to meet Frank, their gorgeous, but slightly boisterous dog, who played the role of the loveable rogue throughout the shoot. He did however do as he was told at the very end of the shoot, which allowed us to capture the four legged member of the family (after bribing him with an appropriate amount of treats).Read More
Sometimes, it feels like there are never enough hours in the day. I'm sure it's not just us who feels this way. Since our son was born, time seems to gone by even faster.
This month he turns 5 and yet it only feels like yesterday we were bringing him home from hospital for the very first time.
I guess this is why our clients are so happy when they receive their prints. A photo freezes a snapshot of time, one that will never happen again, but can instantly be relived, even in our incresingly busy lives.
While we sit here typing this blog post, Lisa looked up to the prints of our son on the wall, taken a year apart and said "you never see the change day to day, it's only when you look back."
As he approaches his birthday, it's good to look back on those photos. If only to remind us when he is playing up that actually, he is an amazing little man that never fails to make us smile, laugh and astonish us every day.

There are moments when you are working as a photographer that you realise your clients are the perfect fit. With Rebecca & George this moment happened during their wedding reception. Their playlist could have been one of ours. Almost every song we either had on our iPhone's or had lurking on Vinyl or CD at home. We should have known as soon as we saw George's cherry red DM's that this couple had great taste.Read More
