CRAFTING WITH LIGHT AND CAPTURING BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS

There’s nothing quite like a shaft of afternoon sunlight. The way it softens edges, adds glimmers of gold and warms everything it touches. I’m something of a sunlight obsessive, and my photography style is heavily influenced by the play of light and shadow. I love to create airy, artistic images that are infused with a soft glow – using natural light adds a little bit of magic to my camera.

Photography has always held a special fascination for me – even as a child I loved snapping images and freeze-framing memories. My passion blossomed from an enthusiastic hobby into a full-time career after the birth of my third child, and I’ve never looked back.

FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY

I find inspiration in the people I meet and the places I visit. There are so many creative and talented business owners in the wedding, lifestyle and travel sector, and working with these small-but-mighty brands to photograph their beautifully styled workshops, press events, retreats, venue/resorts and business branding is a real joy. From florists and planners, to stylists, cake designers, craftspeople, designers and bloggers, the passion each person has for their business is infectious, and a brand shoot never fails to leave me feeling lit up with inspiration.

If you’re looking for light-filled, fine-art photography that will tell your unique and beautiful story, then I’d love to hear from you. Have a look at my portfolio for examples of my work and get in touch for a chat.

interesting facts ABOUT ME

FLOWERS – My house is always filled with fresh flowers, and in the summer months you’ll find me in my garden. There’s something so calming about planting seeds and watching them bloom.

TRAVEL – My wanderlust continues to grow with each year. I’m inspired by other cultures and landscapes, and love experiencing the art and architecture of another country and learning some of its stories.

FAMILY – My husband and three children are my World. I spend time with them every chance I get, and love planning adventures together.

BAKING – I’m not exactly a star baker, but creating sweet treats in the kitchen is one of my many forms of therapy. It’s calming and soothing, and there are delicious things to be had at the end of it!

KITTY CAT – I have a British Blue called Coco. He’s my beautiful fur baby.

SISTER – My identical twin, my other half. I’m very lucky to be so close to my twin sister, and love having someone so completely on my wavelength!

 
 

 
 
 
 

“One life on this earth is all we get, whether it is enough or not enough, and the obvious conclusion would seem to be at the very least we are fools if we do not live it as fully and bravely and beautifully as we can.”
