We spotted this beautiful home when we first moved to Horncliffe, it is in the neighbouring village and for sale through Inigo sister business to The Modern House estate agency, but specialising in period properties rather than contemporary. We were asked to photograph this amazing property for Period Living magazine. It has just been published […]

The Fishers Arms

You may have heard that in our village, we are trying to do a community buy out of our pub, the Fishers Arms. A passionate campaign has been kick started and I am delighted to have been given the task of designing the interior, should we be successful. Douglas and I arrived in this beautiful, […]

A gorgeous hallway

I am trying out a new routine with this blog: I am going to post features as they are published. So last week I showed off the gorgeous Georgian townhouse in the current Period Living magazine. Sounds obvious, I know, but for various reasons I am usually much more random than that I am afraid […]

A Georgian Townhouse in Berwick Upon Tweed

This quiet town located on the border between Scotland and England is not to be underestimated: steeped in history, its possession changed hands several times over the centuries between the two kingdoms. The centre is a warren of elegant Georgian streets and squares and is ringed by the fascinating medieval town walls. At the head […]

A converted chapel

We photographed and styled this beautiful property in a village in North Northumberland for Period Living magazine recently and it appeared in the January issue. London based journalist, Stephanie Smith, got in touch and introduced us to the owner Dean Keyworth and his husband, Gavin Hilton and we were intrigued. I had seen the house […]

Photoshoots in a pandemic

When Covid hit, we, like many business owners felt quite anxious. How do you navigate a photography business in a global pandemic? We had no choice but to stay at home in the initial lockdown. Going in to people’s homes and photographing them and interviewing them was an absolute no-no and my travel pieces, that […]

Mary-Anne Gallo

Delighted to see our beautiful Xmas feature in the the latest, December 2021 edition of 25 Beautiful Homes. We shot the Edinburgh home of interior designer, Mary-Anne Gallo this time last year, knowing it was going to be published this Xmas. We arrived and Mary-Anne was perfectly prepared with stockings on the mantelpiece, her tree, […]

ARD Bakery

I came across this most extraordinary cake maker recently, also called Alison. Of course I enjoy an instant friendship with anyone else called Alison so I reached out and interviewed her. I was curious what makes Alison tick and where her creativity comes from and tried to ask her some searching questions… Her business, ARD […]

Why I need to do my course…

This move has been such a learning curve. When we completed our last home we had a strong feeling that we needed to do another house, to put into practice everything we had learnt from the project. We honestly thought we knew it all! Errr no, we did make mistakes and we did learn from […]

Carly Kyle’s Edinburgh Home

We did a shoot recently of a gorgeous Edinburgh terrace, owned by interior designer Carley Kyle. Carley studied interior architecture initially and then had a career break when her daughter was born and trained as a photographer as well. She has ably combined both careers with motherhood and during lockdown she started a line of […]

My Diet Journey

I am not hugely overweight, but keen to stay fit and healthy as I get older. I love cooking and eating and socialising, so staying slim is not that easy for me I am afraid. When Love Yourself, a company that delivers healthy food, in a range of plans, got in touch, I leapt at […]

Victoria Wylie Artist

I love discovering new artists that I admire. I was delighted to have the opportunity to interview landscape painter Victoria Wylie and find out about her background and processes as an artist. AG Tell me a little about where you come from Victoria? VW I was born and brought up in North Yorkshire and trained […]

6 Great Things About Moving

My last post covered all the agony of our move, or touched on it at least – I did not want to upset anyone with too much detail! This week, I thought I would focus on some of the good things about moving. At the end of the day I can nip down a path […]
