I specialise in event and commercial photography alongside weddings and photographing babies, children and families on location or in my studio. I gained my Master Photographers Association Licentiateship in December 2004 and have been running my own studio for over 10 years.
My love of photography and all things creative began in childhood. I would spend hours drawing, painting and looking at photographs. I worked as a Picture Editor in Germany for GQ Magazine then returned to the UK to start a family and it was the birth of my son that was the catalyst that propelled me into becoming a professional photographer, he has taught me pretty much everything I know about photographing children.
Photographs are a wonderful keepsake not only for parents, but also for the children in later life; you never get that time again and it is priceless. I am often found looking through old albums and photos taken by my grandmother who took some amazing images.
Joining me on my team are Stuart and Eva. Sometimes a shoot will involve working with a larger team to help carry and set up. Stuart is my life partner and provides essential equipment carrying and chauffeuring skills he is also known as “One Shot” due to his ability to always get that one perfect wow shot even though his primary job is to ensure any shoots outside the studio run smoothly – he is an essential member of the team and comes into his own at weddings and commercial projects.
The other member of the team is Eva who is my second photographer, always happy and an amazing people person she can make the most nervous of people feel relaxed and at ease.
