The Joy of Prints “The object of Art is to give life a shape” – William Shakespeare Who remembers floppy discs? They were the equivalent of USBs where you could save your files and photos, unfortunately they became redundant as technology changed.

David and Lisa’s children were wonderful to photograph and very easy going. […]
