A quick note on COVID-19 ... While in Lockdown #3 I am still working with product, landscape and location photography but sadly not face to face appointments. I will give updates on how, with the right measures, we can get face to face photography going again in Tier 3 or below.
The world keeps on turning, our families keep on growing and our businesses still need the best kind of promoting - I am taking provisional bookings from February 15th 2021, alternative dates will be offered if, for any reason, shoots cant go ahead.
So do get in touch to with inquires.

Incredible time at an autumn mini shoot. Deborah put my son at ease and made the whole experience enjoyable and fun. The images are all amazing and I can’t wait to get them printed and in frames. Thank you so much :)

If you need a professional but friendly photographer in the south Somerset area, go to Deborah. She was brilliant with our photo shoot. It was fun and relaxing and the photos we came away with are just perfect. Couldn’t be happier - thanks Deborah x
