Because my areas of speciality are weddings and kids and family portraits on location there really is quite a mix and I've popped a few personal photos in there for good measure, it's a funny thing when you get this collection all in one place, to see what you accomplished in a year is a wonderful thing indeed.
What I have discovered this year is that I love being on location shooting family portraits in the North East and it's possibly a good time to reveal some news about 2013, you see I've never been entirely happy in a studio, I always felt that it was almost too easy and that there were no backgrounds, I like life as a background, I think it makes for much better photos and the kids enjoy being outdoors so much, it's perfect for my style of photography and so yesterday I handed in my notice at the studio and I'm going to be moving to a brand new NE1 business address, I've found the most gorgeous meeting room perfect for my needs, a great base to meet all of you lovely clients looking for a wedding photographer in the North East of England and for some of you it will be just around the corner from your venues because it's city centre based. It really is an exciting development and I'm so happy with the choices I've taken.
And so come with me for a meander through the highlights of 2012 and do leave a comment with your favourite image
This one right here is my favourite wedding image from 2012, shot in August at Durham Castle there's just something special about it don't you think?
This might possibly be my favourite portrait image of the year but to be honest it sort of changes every week because I shoot so many mini sessions and portrait sessions, up to 20 a week at peak times.
