I love the special bond these two have…



Hurlingham Club Styled Wedding Shoot
02nd December 2014
Trying to choose my favourite image from the Hurlingham Club Styled Wedding Shoot is pretty difficult, there were so many special moments.

What an exhausting day, but I wouldn't have missed it for anything in the world. Always great to work with Matthew Bishop Photography and, to top it all, all the suppliers were top-notch, the models ballet dancers.

Just take a look at the flowers and the scale of them, I don't want to think how much they would cost! Better start saving for my boys' weddings! Will try not to be the mother-in-law from hell, but can't make any promises…

Love autumn
17th November 2014
Beautiful walk up to Leith Hill Tower yesterday…

My latest venture...
12th November 2014
...Boudoir photography!

Now for something completely different, I am excited to share with you a couple of images from my latest venture, boudoir photography.

Top left in the picture is our model, the lovely Emily Waugh - she is the girl next door, literally, not a professional model - before the talented Emma Josey Hair & Make-Up Artist started work.

If you or someone you know would like to have some similar photos or if you are looking for an original Christmas present that is not only a fabulous experience, but also something to treasure for ever, please contact me as I will be offering special rates to my first three clients.

A wet bonfire night...
08th November 2014
Managed to get a few images despite the torrential rain at the Ockley Bonfire Night. Ended up with some interesting effects with water on the lens...





Styled Wedding Shoot
08th November 2014
Here are some images from the Chiswick Town Hall Styled Wedding Shoot a couple of weeks ago. It's a new wedding venue and was beautifully styled by Love, Laura Wedding Planning, Pumpkin Events, Signature Flowers by Emma Newman, Friend of Faux, The Pretty Cake Company and Ginny&I.

The Benton Twins

Nearly six weeks early, here are the Benton twins, aged 11 days…

It's official - Leslie Bliss LBIPP
04th November 2014
I am now a fully qualified member of the British Institute of Professional Photography, having been awarded my Licentiateship today. Most exciting of all is that I've been nominated for the prestigious Best Licentiate of the Year Award.

A massive thank you to everyone who has helped me on my journey, especially Emily Hancock FBIPP, without whom none of this would have happened.

The perfect autumnal day
28th October 2014
What a perfect day for an autumnal shoot - can't believe we were wearing T-shirts when it's nearly November!

A maternity shoot
23rd October 2014
My favourite from yesterday's shoot. It's not often you photograph a bump of twins!

Behind the scenes at a fashion shoot
13th October 2014
Thank you Ashley Rossiter from Mirror Me PR for this behind-the-scenes video of the Freddie Parker fashion shoot at the Lanigan's racing yard in Lambourn this summer.

The value of a good PR is so obvious when I see how all my images from this shoot have been used and appeared in all sorts of media over the past few months and I've been reliably informed there's lots more to come!
Extra special
10th October 2014
It's always extra special when a client chooses to have a framed image and it also happens to be my personal favourite. And I do think this grey frame works rather well with the blue roan…

Diddy album
09th October 2014
I just love this little 6"x6" album with its 10 prints. There's a lovely Dutch expression "Klein maar fijn" which translates something like "small but perfectly formed" in this instance. Can't wait to show it to my client.

You get what you pay for
09th October 2014
Sometimes it's worth spending the extra and I've done just that to display my portfolio images. Thank you Plastic Sandwich! More will be revealed regarding this investment in due course...

BD National Championships 2014
23rd September 2014
It was great to catch up with so many people at the Nationals and I had such fun experimenting creating some different shots.



Mr Munchie
09th September 2014
Some horses just exude character and presence and the subject of today's shoot was certainly one of those horses. His colouring - blue and white roan - certainly make him stand out from the crowd.





Beautifully tailored Jackets by Torty
06th September 2014
It was great fun photographing Torty and her stunning waterproof jackets, especially as her 10-year-old daughter decided to help out with the modelling.

A memorable shoot
01st September 2014
Photographing a fashion shoot for Freddie Parker at the Lanigan racing stables in Lambourn was a special experience, so it's awesome to have this YouTube video as a reminder of the day. Thank you to Ashley Rossiter at MirrorMe PR.

Something a little different
28th August 2014
Exhausting but absolutely fantastic day with NPhoto's Editor and apprentice today. Managed to get something a little different to the standard portraits…

Freddie Parker fashion shoot
29th July 2014
It's so lovely to see the results of my fashion shoot with Freddie Parker at racing trainer David Lanigan's yard Kingsdown in Upper Lambourn in print.
