Way back when, in the early days of For the Love, I did a solo shoot with my pregnant sister, India. At the time I remember thinking 'oh my gosh she is SO pregnant' - well let me tell you, she was a lot now pregnant by the time we did this shoot!! As I mentioned in my … Continue reading India’s second bump shoot with us…
We've had a busy few weeks of, shall we say, life. But you know us, never able to resist a photo opportunity... So when I went to a gig at Audacious Art Experiment in Sheffield on Saturday I of course took my camera along with me. It was both a happy and sad event. It was a … Continue reading Fly On Byrd, Fly On… please!
Months ago whilst I was having my latest tattoo by my very talented brother I got chatting to Dean, who is the owner of Black Tooth Tattoo in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, and we planned a bump shoot for he and his pregnant wife. At this point Katy was in the early stages of pregnancy, so it was more … Continue reading For the love of a countryside maternity shoot
As the title suggests, we were recently hired to shoot a litter of 6 week old cocker spaniel puppies. Now I absolutely love dogs, well all furry creatures really, but especially dogs.

It did occur to us that travelling to London the weekend after the city was sadly targeted … Continue reading For the love of summer in the city

Over the bank holiday weekend I (Anna) headed on my very own road trip down to see one of my oldest and very best friends, Nastassja, in Bristol. Ever since Nastash moved down there I've been promising and meaning to go down for a visit. But money gets spent on other things, time flies and … Continue reading For the love of new cities and old friends
Last weekend brought my third wedding anniversary to my lovely, long serving husband Dan. I can't quite believe it's been 11 whole years since we met. So, anyway, off we went (in bank holiday traffic) to Wales, southern Snowdonia to have some 'us' time. To our new favourite place in the world Graig Wen. On … Continue reading Take me to the mountains.
[Please note: I wrote this post before the terror attacks on 3rd June. Sending thoughts of peace, love and hope to all those effected by the attacks and those who continue to bustle in our city of London] I was never particularly taken with our capital. I'd visited London a few times to go to … Continue reading How London won over this Northerner
