Sunset surfer beach shoot

My little girl is off to secondary school soon. It feels like such an enormous change and she's growing up way too fast. I wanted to capture her spirit now, before she changes into a full blown teenager and what better way than to spend an evening at the beach with her best friends? They've all known each other since they were born and have so many precious memories together. They hand picked their outfits, chose their accessories and got ready together (whilst eating pizza). Then, we headed to Southerndown beach (our favourite) for the shoot. We had lots of fun and I absolutely loved seeing the girls together enjoying themselves. You're never to old to enjoy splashing each other in the sea, right?

The beach is my happy place and I loved getting in the sea with my camera (a first!) to take the surf shots. If you are a beach loving family and would like to capture your favourite place with your favourite people then please get in touch to find out about my location photo sessions. Gem x

Winter Photo Shoot

"Thank you so much for my photographs. Such a personal touch. I was so excited and could not be happier with all the results. You made the day very special through your lens and captured the circle of love that surrounds me. You're a very talented girl." Terrie

I had a wonderful Winter photo shoot with this fabulous family at Dunraven Gardens and beach. The whole family got together for the session and we spent a lovely morning exploring the gardens and running about on the beach. We were lucky with the weather and managed to get lots of family photos done as the gorgeous Winter sun rose in the sky. It was an absolute pleasure to spend time with this family and I felt honoured to be able to capture the love between all of them. Thank you all for booking me! Love Gem x


The Mayze Family

We made the most of the late October sunshine on the Southerndown beach during half term for this family photo session. Chief models Hannah and Owen were joined by Chipper and Daisy for a good old run around on the beach. And, yes, I did take pictures of Mum and Dad too but they are a bit shy so you're only allowed to see the back of them! :)


Southerndown Beach Shoot

This photo session captured my heart. I love the beach and Southerndown is one of my favourite places to be, so when I met the Cookson family and we had so much in common, I knew this was going to be a fantastic experience. The session started off in the walled gardens, high on the cliffs above the beach and then as the sun started to set, we walked down onto the beach and had a play in the water. I'm super happy with all the pictures from the session and even thinking about booking my own beach photo shoot for next Summer! Thanks for being amazing guys. Gem x
