Goodbye 2011, you were quite a year!

It's officially the last day of the year and like many of you I'm looking back at 2011 and thinking what a year it was!

In 2011 I finally plucked up the courage to enter photographic competitions and I'm so glad that I did as I've won 17 seperate awards for wedding and portraiture photographs this year, even better is that most of those were international competitions!  2011 was the year I finally moved into a studio too!



In 2011 I was lucky enough to shoot 2 of my best friends weddings, Christine and Michael




and Li and Phil


My very first assistant and lovely friend Nigel had a gorgeous baby girl



 and my beautiful friend Heather gave birth to Yovel, a gorgeous brother for delightful Toam

and of course in 2011, these three gorgeous people gave me so much to be proud of, Abigail continues to excel at school


Looby continues to be the most popular girl in the known universe spreading joy and cuddles wherever she goes



and Iain continues to amaze us, because of his aspergers he's not a big fan of photos so I have to catch him unaware but he's excelling at school, he's got more friends than I think he ever imagined he would and he even had his first girlfriend this year.

I love my family so much, without them none of this would be possible

So whatever you do to celebrate have a wonderful New Years Eve and an amazing 2012
