He loves to climb!

This incredible boy loves colour and describes people in terms of the colours he sees for them. Being Autistic means that his brain works a bit differently than most peoples. This can create extra challenges but is also what makes him such an awesome kid. Gaining Trust I knew that I needed to build trust…

Family photoshoot in Leamington Spa

Tis the Season

These gorgeous children’s photographs were taken just outside my portrait studio in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. I grew up in South Africa so I had never seen snow falling until I moved to England about 10 years ago. It still makes me super excited like a little kid and I sit with my eyes glued to…
