A very belated Happy New Year to you all! I have been a busy bee these last couple of weeks and haven't had time to blog anything, but I definitely want to make more of an effort to blog more regularly. I have set myself a challenge (that I'm running on my Instagram page) to take a photo a day all year, which I'm really enjoying! Check me out if you're interested -

If I get time I may try and blog each month's photos that I take.

Just before New Year struck, a very good family friend of mine, Elizabeth, had her children and grandkids come over from the other sides of the world to spend some lovely quality time together over Christmas! Her son Marcus and his family live over on Long Island (NY), and her daughter Louise lives in Auckland (New Zealand) - so once the jet lag had worn off it was the perfect time to have a walk in the park and take some family photos to cherish.

Family photo shoots are something that I would love to do more of this year, so if you like the idea of a relaxed and informal shoot, please drop me a line from any of my social media channels, or email me -

Here are some of the highlights of our shoot in the park - we got lucky with the weather as it stayed mild and dry. I was a very happy boy as it gave me the opportunity to test my new lens out (the 85mm 1.2)!
