Thanks for stopping by to check out my blog.
I have always been a keen snapper with point and shoot cameras but this moved to another level following the arrival of our daughter in 2005. Saoirse pronounced ‘Seer-Sha’ meaning Freedom in Irish was born in October 2005 and after 6 months of trying to take lots of pictures of her I started to get really frustrated at how out-dated and slow my 3.1mp Kodak point & shoot camera had become. Despite having some control over the camera’s settings, it just could not keep up with the pace at which my little girl was growing up.
This blog is an open picture book for anyone who wishes to follow it. It’s another method for me to be able to share my passion for photography and to be able to visually document my children as they grow up.
Another reason I take so many images of my children is that my family are spread out between England, France & as far off as New Zealand. It’s a great way for them to see how we are all getting on.
I use a full frame Canon 5D Mark II and my main lens of choice is the Canon EF 24-70 2.8 L lens. I have a couple of other lenses but most of the time I will use my 24-70 as its a great all round lens with fantastic low light ability at f2.8
