What I do & How I do it...
I love the varied directions my work takes me, from photographing weddings & christenings to pregnancy, babies, children & family portraits and occasions. Whatever line of work I'm involved in I always feel privileged to be a part of people’s lives. Being given the opportunity to capture those special moments in their lives where celebrations and special days only come around once is an honour. I pride myself on unobtrusive, honest and personal photography with images that carry an editorial context.
Thanks to my background with managing celebrity shoots I can bring my experience of working with make-up artists, editors and set designers to help create the desired outcome for your shoot day. This is particularly important when working with brides in the lead up to their weddings. I insist on meeting with clients to discuss their visions and then work with the other vital team members on the day to ensure this is carried through. Allowing you to trust in me to achieve what you envisaged.
I enjoy capturing individuality and style be it a bride’s heirloom jewellery or dress, table centrepieces and flowers or the guest’s reactions to the best man speech! All of these elements are the reflection of the couple and should be recorded for you to reminisce over and share with friends and family for years to come. My inspiration comes from varied sources but I get excited over beautiful fashion shoots and advertisements in magazines such as VOGUE, Red and GQ which I like to take ideas from and translate in the images I take (& no I am not comparing myself to world famous fashion photographers, but we can all dream can't we!)
After graduating from the Arts Institute Bournemouth with a BA Hons degree in Photography I went on to work for Insanity; a media talent management agency based in central London.
There I was promoted to Creative Director managing photographers, stylists and make-up artists as well as managing production for photo shoots for leading publications, PR clients and celebrity commissions.
Although I LOVED working in this industry I made the decision to focus solely on photography as it’s my passion and where my heart had always lied.
A little bit more about me...
As most of the work I photograph captures LOVE and you share that with me I wanted to share some of the LOVES in my life with you…
My gorgeous family consisting of my hubby, daughter and baby boy. My family and friends, Pinterest (obsessed), Prosecco and Kettle Chips, a ‘can’t stop watching’ box set, dancing (not professional just for fun), reading a book that you can’t put down, laughing so hard you cry, high heels, train journeys that run efficiently, leopard print, that feeling after going to the gym (definitely not the feeling before).
Now that you know a bit about me I’d love for you to take some time and browse through my work to get a taste for what I do and to take a look at some of the images I’ve already had the honour of capturing here in my PORTFOLIO
