Photography Clitheroe Mark's Birthday It was an absolute pleasure to be asked to photograph Mark Murphy's 50th Birthday party at the Eagle in Barrow, Clitheroe. 

Wow there was a magician, casino, show girls, music, food and lots more.  What a lovely couple Mark and Sarah Murphy are.  The guests were amazing and lovely to work with.

He is a sneak preview of some of the photographs taken on the night.

Cake Smash Photoshoot Clitheroe Come take a peek at Emily's cake smash and find out more about these sessions, we had a ball!

Cake Smash Photo shoot Clitheroe

The look on your babies face is truly priceless when you place this lovely cake in front of them and give them free reign to not only touch it, but smash it to bits!        What could be anymore fun than that?!

Cake smash sessions take place around your little ones first birthday. Even their second birthday too.

What should my toddler wear?

I would suggest for little girls, a tutu or a frilly skirt.  For little boys a pair or shorts and / or a bow tie.  I would suggest not wearing anything on their top half as you will be able to see the cake more all over them lol

Due to food allergies etc I request that parents bring their own cake or even a trifle ! If bringing a cake make sure it is buttercream so your toddler can grab it easy. If you prefer I can get a local cake maker to give you a quote to make the cake for you (as seen in the photo below)

I will literally do everything else, you don't even have to clean up, the mess is all mine!!!!


How much will this cost ?

For a beautiful 10x8 mounted photo with six images in (see below) the cost is just £99

Baby Photography Alanzo Towler As I photograph lots of babies of the first 12 months of their lives as part of my 'Watch Me Grow' series I thought it might be a good idea to create a summary of their first year for them. 

What better way to start by using a cheeky chappie that I photographed recently, the gorgeous Alanzo Towler!

Alanzo has a fabulous mum, they came to me towards the end of 2015 for his first portrait sitting,  can not wait to see him again in April 2016 when he will be sitting up.

This is a photo of the start of Alanzo's blog board!

5 Tips to Dress Irresistibly Well for your Photoshoot Gone are the days of everyone wearing matching outfits to their family portrait session... Thank goodness! There is nothing quite like a "photography trend" to date your photographs in years to come. But this does open up the question - what on earth do I wear? These photographs are going to hang on your walls for years to come, so you want them to last the test of time when it comes to your clothing choices. Here are our Top 5 tips to help you choose your outfits:


Whether you prefer pastels, monochrome, bolds or neutrals - sticking to a small selection of colour will mean your photographs will look nicely coordinated and neat.



Do you have bold colours on the walls? Creams? Busy wallpaper? Since you will be framing these photographs in your home, you'll want them to blend in and match your decor.

  Family photographer Clitheoe


Tuxedos and ballgowns have a place in photography, but perhaps not for your family portrait. You still want to look like "you". Rather, think what you would wear to a nice resturant in the evening. Make sure you're comfortable and feel like yourself in these clothes.


There are certain parts of your body you may like to play down in a photo shoot. You want your lovely family's faces to stand out the most, so choose darker bottoms, tops with sleeves that cover the elbow and black socks/shoes. This rule is more for the grown-ups than the kids ;-)



Family Photographer Clitheroe


Patterns look great every day out and about, but can add a lot of distraction to a still photograph. If you wish to use patterns, go easy and we recommend just one of you wear a pattern with the rest in co-ordinating block colours to compliment. A chequered shirt or floral dress can look lovely... in moderation! The same goes for the kid's tops: Yes, Frozen might be their favourite film but an Elsa top can be very distracting in your portrait. 

So in a nut shell, think "timeless and classic" when it comes to your precious photographs. Keep it simple and go with your heart! These are your special images and you'll want to look at them with pride for years to come.

Spring is here With March nearly over and Spring fast approaching, where is the year going !

What a fantastic start to my year.  It has been so busy with baby and family portraits.

Also I will be at the Chipping Steam Fare in May.  Look out for another chance to enter the free prize draw again at both of these events

Where it all began ! I have always had a passion for photography taking my city and guilds photography 25 years ago.

Photography has run in the family with my father and brother both keen photographers and we set up a 'lightroom' in the loft at home to develop our film images (them are the days before digital!)

About 15 years ago my best friend Debbie invited me to her son and daughters christening and I decided to take photographs of the event and make an album up for a christening present. Seeing her delight when I presented her with the album has never left me. A couple of years later she asked if I would take her wedding photographs. I was only too pleased to do this. All I can say was I loved every minute of it. I knew straight away this is what I wanted to do.

I shadowed and worked with a professional photographer for a couple of years gaining invaluable experience before setting up my own photography company.

A good friend of mine who is also a photographer introduced me to the world of baby photography, something I had not thought about doing. We set out and asked if anyone would let me practice photographing their baby, I absolutely loved it, never looked back. I decided to submit a portfolio of images to the Cherubs baby photographers and was delighted to pass the assessment and become one of their Cherub baby photographers and will be taking over from Andrew Hall Photography from January 2015 - very excited :)
