Passionate people photographer, based in Norwich  …  enthusiastic portrait photographer … Family portraits especially … Particularly fascinated by trying to capture the exuberance and joy of young children making sense of the world…

Family portrait photography and children’s portraits ….

I have an enhanced DBS check and am on the update service. I have £5 million pounds public liability insurance.

30 years experience as photographer, 5 years as professional. (Previously  - 22 years in primary education, including seven years as the head of Mulbarton Infant School) I have conducted multiple photoshoots in schools and preschools throughout Norfolk, clients this year include Mulbarton Primary, Mulberrybush, Nightingale First, Colman infant and Junior, Caister Infant, Fred Nicholson Special School St Helen's preschool, and Salhouse toddler group.

Children are an amazing photographic subject. They see the world differently, and often express a lot more love and emotion than adults. Being able to capture that is both a fantastic photographic challenge, and a profound learning experience.

I also work closely with dance schools and PE departments, capturing the exuberance of young people in motion. Special fundraisers for PTAs and committees a speciality.

The Grove Cromer provides quality hotel accommodation both B&B, holiday cottages and glamping within walking distance of the North Norfolk coast.

A family-run guest house since 1936, The Grove is only half a mile from Cromer town centre, and more importantly, it is just a short walk, through its own private entrance into the woods, from the cliffs and beach.

Alongside a choice of ensuite rooms in the beautiful Georgian country house, we have six self-catering cottages in the adjacent barn conversions.

Our fabulous two rosette restaurant serves a full English breakfast, afternoon teas, Sunday lunch and dinner throughout the week. The restaurant is split into two rooms, with the original dining room available for private dining.

There is plenty of space to unwind both for adults and children, whether splashing about in our indoor heated swimming pool, knocking a table tennis ball around, exploring our three acres of gardens with their tree-house and trampoline, or putting your feet up with a cup of tea in our beautiful lounge or new orangery bar. Further afield, a children’s play area is just a few minutes’ woodland walk away.
All the activities of Cromer are reachable either by car or on foot. You can walk entirely off-road along the cliffs through our own entrance into Warren Woods at the top of the garden.

From the day it was built, The Grove has been a family house, a place of welcome, relaxation and security for more than two centuries. Through the guest house and cottages we aim to extend that welcome to all who visit us. We wish our guests to experience the warmth and comfort that has been infused into the house by many generations of people, and we have built on this legacy to create a place where you can come in and immediately relax.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Grove Cromer.
