Little girls in beautiful tutu dresses, dancing with teddies and galloping on rocking horses always bring a smile to their faces, and an opportunity for lovely memories to be captured.
These dresses are loaned to me by Dawn Houston, a creative dress-maker who stitches wonderful powder puffs of girliness for the little ones, and big ones, to wear. She sells them from The Small Business Emporium in Denton.
Here’s a few from a recent tutu photo session:
Christmas is coming and it seems people are already thinking in that direction.
I’ll be announcing special Christmas shoots very soon – if you want to book and get ahead of the game contact me here
This coming Sunday I will be at the Oldham Academy at the Dragon’s Den famed Mum2mum Market. ( Nearly New and New Baby and up to 6 yrs Equipment and clothes amongst other things! ) I’ll be exhibiting some of my recent work, involving the Cardboard Box Project and the Tutu Shoots. My work at present is involving not only Maternity and Newborn sessions, but also babies in their first year and older children.
Mum2mum Market is at the Oldham Academy 1.30 til 3.30pm, this Sunday, 17th September. See you there!
Facebook has been awash with phone images of first day at school. Here’s a few I took of Sam just before his first day back, looking pristine in his new school uniform, proud and very excited to be going.
More of this session can be seen here : Back to School

Thanks to my wonderful brother Richard Grinter, my website and branding has a new look. It’s taken the two of us months to design and perfect the idea, but I’m over the moon with the new look and how it can be used. Please check out the rest of my website to see how it looks.
Maternity Photography or Bump-to-Baby Photography.
I love to meet mums before they give birth, in order for them to get to know how I work and that their newborn baby during their newborn baby photography session will be in safe hands. It’s a quiet and calm time when mum can feel pampered and looking amazing.
If you’d like to have a chat about what it involves or book a session for yourself please just message me or ring on 07759 599134.
Don’t be another one that regrets she didn’t do it.
Beautiful babies, changing so quickly in the first year of their lives. From Newborns, sleepy, curly little characters to sitters and then up onto their feet. They’re all wonderful opportunities for capturing moments in their developing worlds.
Ten things to capture yourselves:
- first smile
- baby stretches
- little character traits that you may notice like wriggling their noses, or fanning out their hands
- first roll
- sitting progress from needing support to sitting alone
- first laugh
- playing with a favourite toy
- mode of transport be it crawling, shuffling or rolling
- first steps and expressions
These are all little moments that can easily be captured on a smartphone or camera. They may seem cute at the time but they’ll be wonderful to look back upon years later. Remember to back up your images or even get them printed as simple prints put into an album or in a printed book. Images on a computer or phone are easily lost!!

I’ve recently had the pleasure of meeting little Piper when her mum brought her to my photostudio.
Let me introduce her to you: She was a two year old bubbly little lady, with a bounce of blonde hair and a wonderful smile to go with it.
Now usually I think twice about having a terrible two year old in the studio as the little maturing toddlers are well known to be brewing an awareness and understanding that what ‘they’ want ‘me’ to do, isn’t great fun but is much more amusing to do the opposite. Luckily with Piper we hit on a good note and got her very engrossed in dressing up in frilly dresses and playing with the very interesting toys I have in the studio.
She loved it, and experience and quick thinking allowed me to get a great range of images within the 20mins we managed to keep her attention for.
Then the strop happened – and everything ground to a halt. It made for one final image that is one of my favourites in the set – ‘Miss Diva’.
Here’s a few of the images from the session. The tutu dress was kindly loaned by Dawn Houston of The Small Business Emporium, Denton. The other clothes also available from the Truly Piper range also at The Emporium. A big thankyou also to Piper’s Mum Lis for her assistance in the studio.
