Hi I’m Robert – a photographer and university examiner, living in the North East of England and photography classes in Richmond upon Thames College in the eighties were just the beginning of my passion!
If you’re a mum or a dad, like me, you know only too well that the most beautiful moments are fleeting: You will never forget any of these things, but sometimes it’s hard to remember all the details. I know you’re here for a reason – because you believe (as I do) that photography really matters and can add depth and meaning to life – not just today, but years down the road.
- The first time you feel your baby kick inside your partner
- The first time you look into your newborn's eyes.
- The first smile, rolling over, sitting up and crawling
- The first steps, first words, first day of school
- And so much more.....
Someday, your children will be all grown up, and they won’t remember everything you told them about their childhood or your wedding day. Our children often get out our wedding album, as yours will, and ask who is this and who is that and ooo, that is pretty.......
When that time comes, you’ll want photographs that succeeded in capturing the joy and love of those early years, which you can then share with your grandchildren, and their grandchildren.
You know that you’re not going to get that from someone who just “takes your picture”. You want to capture – in all its glory – the beauty of your child or your family right now, because everything will have changed by tomorrow.
Tomorrow will bring another milestone, or another adventure, but “today” will have become “yesterday”, “last week”, “last month”, or “last year”.
One of the great things you can expect from me is to make you laugh, smile, and see the love you have for each other in your eyes.
Through my passion for photography, I see the “real” you through my lens, so that you can take those precious moments and share them with the world.
