My aim is to create timeless and elegant images for you using natural tones, simple props and delicate fabrics which allow your children's features to be the focus of the image: tiny toes, pursed lips, eyes full of wonder, or delicate eye lashes in the case of the babies; cheeky smiles, twinkling eyes and sibling cuddles in the case of older children.
I haven’t always been a photographer. A lover of photography, yes, but for years I wasn’t brave enough to take the leap into doing what I really loved professionally. I started my working life as a prep school teacher because I have always enjoyed working with children (and perhaps somewhat inevitably coming from a family full of teachers, head teachers and educational psychologists!) but always had my camera close at hand.
Shortly after my daughter was born, I really learnt the value of family photos: both those which you snap on your camera phone in the middle of some great hilarity or to capture an unrepeatable moment, but also those which are planned: those which perfectly document the tiny physical details of your child, capture their unique, evolving personalities and which immortalise the priceless relationships between family members.
I had always known that beautiful, professional photographs can bring joy day after day, but I finally understood that those images - and all the associated memories which they evoke - become immeasurably valuable possessions, cherished and thoughtfully passed down from parent to child… and possibly even further!
So, I went from welcoming children into my classroom to inviting you and your family into my studio. Just as you invest in other elements of your children’s lives, I believe that it is worth investing in professional photography and I invite you to join in too.
