2012... thank you all for sharing your incredible year with me!

I don't know quite where to start with this.  I get really quite emotional when I think about all the people I have had the privilege of photographing this year.  All the brides and grooms who have asked me to take on the huge job of recording their wedding day for them.  Of capturing all those emotional moments, beautiful details, amazing venues and all the unique interactions that make up each individual wedding day.  And then there have been all the families that I have spent time photographing; the newborn babies, the toddlers playing, the precious interactions between parents and children.  It has been amazing to return to couples and families at different stages in their lives, to see brides and grooms become parents, and newborn babies grow into toddlers, some becoming older brothers or sisters.  I really can't think of anything more precious than capturing these moments.  Life moves on so quickly all the time; wedding days finally happen and then pass by, newborns fatten up into bouncing babies, who grow into children and get older.  The thought that people will be able to hold onto these memories through the images I create is incredibly special to me and something that I keep really focused on at all times.

When I started looking through my year of photographs to choose some for this post, I ended up with a shortlist of over 500 that I loved.  So I had to leave out many, many beautiful images that I would consider among my favourites from this year, to finally come up with the selection below.  I wanted to show you a range of images, from different points across the wedding day, and various sorts of photo sessions.  So I've included family images, newborn photography, engagement sessions and lots and lots of beautiful wedding photographs. Perhaps put the kettle on and make a cuppa while the page loads, then put your feet up and enjoy browsing through some (but certainly not all!) of my very favourite moments captured in 2012.

I honestly have no words that can properly express how grateful I am to have been invited into the lives of so many incredible people this year, and it is an absolute honour to show you these photographs now.  To everyone who has invited me to create images for you this year, and to all those wonderful people who have booked me to do the same in 2013 - I hope that your Christmas and New Year is utterly magical.  And thank you xx
