Who am I? Well most importantly, I’m mummy to scrumptious little people and wife to a truly wonderful man – they are the inspiration behind everything I do and am.
My love for capturing and expressing emotion and connection, found life when I found photography. Although I have always felt at home with a camera in hand, my first steps on the career ladder were actually in education, as a primary school teacher. However, with the arrival of our daughter in 2013, I picked up my camera and I have NEVER put it down again. As a mother myself, I find myself compelled to tell the story of others. Of mothers and fathers, of new brothers and sisters. Of families nervously expecting and welcoming new life into the world.
BUT, REMOVE THE CAMERA AND I AM:
- A mummy, navigating the crazy road of parenthood with my wonderfully supportive husband Luke.
- A night owl, who rarely goes to bed before midnight
- A self-professed technology geek – I love a gadget!
- A foodie (I try to choose the healthier options, although sometimes we all need a treat.
- A travel lover, beach, city, mountain – I love it all.
Specialising in maternity, newborn and family photography in Reading, Berkshire, I take a lifestyle approach to photography - capturing everyday moments and memorable portraits. My goal is to deliver unique images, each beautiful and meaningful and inspired by the love and laughter of family and childhood.
My approach is very natural. I consider each image as a frozen moment in time - I want my clients to look at their collection and say 'Oh that was when...' 'Do you remember when she used to do that' or 'Oh I had forgotten the way he....' There is something so magical about freezing beautiful moments – tiny newborn fingers; a father’s smile for his daughter; the infectious laughter rippling through play time with a sibling. Early family memories really do pass by FAST: to capture them is to hold them there forever. I simply adore and treasure the responsibility of photographing these special times. With each click of the camera, I aim to capture you, your family and your life. Each image in your gallery is fully edited and only the very best photos are selected.
Your session with me is built around you. I will join you in your family home or on location and work alongside the demands of family life. As both a mummy and a teacher, I know children can be a little unpredictable (and I love that). If a feed is needed, a stretch or play necessary or just a breather, then this comes first in your session. I like my clients to feel calm and relaxed from my first click to my last.
I hope you love and identify with the photographs you see on my website! If you do, then please contact me for further information and a session consultation. Take a glance at my portfolio more insight.
I want to provide families with the most beautiful, meaningful and authentic images they possess.
I want you to feel excited and emotional when you view your images, both now and for the rest of your lives. To fall in love all over again.
