I know 'Photos of the Year' type posts are meant to be limited to a small amount of shots (I have a great deal of respect for photographers who can choose 10!) but I've gone for a smaller amount of shots in a variety of categories! 2015 has been a fun and varied year with lots of exciting and beautiful things to capture. Spring and summer seemed particularly long this year and so there were more opportunities for outdoor photos. I also had the great joy of becoming an Aunt too (my new nephew Eli makes an appearance below).
To all who I've had the privilege of working with this last year, thank you!
Some lovely locations locally and further down the country (a beautifully sunny Bristol!). Congratulations to all this years couples x
Flora and Fauna...
As ever, its a real pleasure to live in Cumbria with easy access to the Lakes. There were also some new (furry) additions to the residents at Dalemain Mill that will probably mean that next year's 'fav photos' will feature less birds!
Local Businesses and Organisations...
Thanks to Creations Hair and Beauty Salon, MJ Cabinetmakers, Eden Boutique, and The Rendezvous Restaurant for some fantastic sessions this year. As always, it's been great to work with Ullswater Community College again this year and join in with all the wonderful things they do.
Sessions with some lovely people...
Thanks to all the lovely people I've spent time with this year - I look forward to seeing some of you again soon! And of course, welcome to Eli!
Hospice at Home...
Lastly... a little splash of colour at two Hospice at Home Colour Runs. If you weren't involved this last year and live in Cumbria I'd definitely recommend signing up for the Carlisle or Penrith event. As you can see, it's amazingly fun!
There may or may not be a film show reel of the year too but just in case - a belated Happy New Year! Here's to an equally wonderful 2016
It was a privilege to be organising and photographing at the Branch Out 2013 reading competition - launched by the wonderful John Hurt. A competition very close to my heart and very exciting to have John Hurt launch it for the students of Ullswater Community College.
