The story of a photographer...

Since I was a little girl, I’ve always been fascinated by people. Characters. Relationships. Connections. I’d sit there for hours, lost in my wild imagination, wondering, “How do they know each other?” or “What’s their story?” Watching closely for their behaviours, mannerisms, and interactions, I couldn’t believe how much I could learn about someone’s life in just a matter of seconds. 

 Before I yearned to be behind the lens, I was very much in front of it. For over 13 years, I wore many theatrical hats. From being a stage and screen actress to a professional singer, even a presenter and voice over artist, I thought that was where I belonged. It wasn’t until my firstborn arrived that I realised I was ready to kickstart my new adventure in something I was truly passionate about: photography.

 Having always been branded a ‘sensitive soul’, I knew that I longed for a career which allowed me to do something meaningful and impactful. Something that allowed me to get closer to people and communicate their message their way. Capturing special moments on a camera allows me to do just this. 

 It’s been 8 years since I took the leap and I’ve never looked back. Every snapshot fills me with joy and expression. Every wonderful person that I’ve had the privilege of meeting and photographing is a constant reminder that this is what I am supposed to do.   

So why chose me...

It’s all well and good loving the photographs that your photographer has taken of your day, but how did they make you feel in the moment? Did you trust them? Did you feel like you could be relaxed around them? All these factors are so important – I know, especially, because I’ve been in front of the camera many a time. I know that some people don’t like being in front of the lens – and that’s perfectly okay. I’ll make you feel confident and comfortable. I’ll make sure your photographs are honest and genuine. I’ll make sure that every picture tells your story. 

 You’ll guide me as much as I’ll guide you. I'll join in on the fun; I can take control of the party if you wish; or I can just be a fly on the wall.

Want me to photograph your little ones?

My years spent as a teacher and children’s entertainer comes in handy here. Having hosted children’s parties and presented one-woman shows to over 400 primary-school-aged children, I know the importance of making a connection with them. I’ll let them take the lead. Whether they’re jumping in muddy puddles with Nanny while grinning from ear-to-ear or cuddling up to Daddy after a little fall, those honest moments truly make the best memories. I’ll make sure they’re relaxed and familiar with me before we get started, so we can all enjoy the day and make some memories that really do last a lifetime. 

And most of all, I’m human. I’m a mother, a wife, a daughter, and a friend. I’ll add perfectionist into that list, as well! All that I offer to you, is what I would want for myself. 

I’d want to feel relaxed, confident and like I’m enjoying myself. I promise you’ll feel nothing short of this. 

Let’s make some magic together.
