Words and picture by Fiona Campbell Hicks. Thank you to my beloved 2nd cousin by marriage, Sary, who was a Cambodian angel and hosted me when Raffles were overbooked, and guided me around the city. The amazing thing was that I didn’t know of her existence until I got to Cambodia!
So I promised you the full low down on the fantabulous Sarra’s shoot. I loved this shoot because Sarra was totally open to being creative and trying anything. She was keen to get some glamorous photographs to present to her husband Steve for his birthday. She also wanted a serious photo for her linked in […]
Phew! Life has been fun, but crazy of late. Just back from a fantastic trip to the gorgeous isle of Madeira, where I was researching for a story for a certain magazine, photographing landscapes for the tourist office and swimming with these little guys! Well, big guys. They weigh about 180 pounds. And they are […]
Wet weather is always a worry for your wedding. No bride wants it to tip it down on their wedding day, and it’s a good idea to have a wet weather scenario planned. So how do you plan for the weather in England?The first thing to say is, don’t worry about it! Easier said than […]

There were a lot of apsaras in Cambodia, especially in the temples at Angkor Wat. This delightful lady was found looking after the lotus pools of La Residence d’Angkor, a delightful hotel that hosted me.
OK, well not quite ALL my clothes…This is a post about boudoir photography. A lot brides love to book a boudoir shoot before their wedding, when they’re looking their best. However, I had a mini boudoir shoot in January, when I was feeling fat and depressed after Christmas. And I’m so glad, because it turned […]
There’s something about creating a family shoot. For me it’s about knowing that I’m capturing a magical time in a family’s life and helping them to remember the wonder of it all (which gets lost so easily in the drudge of daily life). I like to think that the photos on the wall will inspire […]
