I have always loved taking photos of people and those moments that often go unnoticed. Before having my kids and becoming a photographer I worked for a children's charity with hundreds of different families. I have always loved working with kids. Photography has always been a big passion for me too and it was after having my daughter that I decided to combine my two passions and start my own photography business.
To me it is all about the joy of the everyday when it comes to families and documenting the warm fuzzy feeling that spending time together gives you. That's why family photography is such a personal thing that takes a thoughtful observer to get right. I much prefer to photograph families subtly from the sidelines while they enjoy themselves, rather than posing them and being an obvious presence. If the idea of having your photograph taken makes you awkward then I know how you feel. I hate having mine taken too but I do love it when someone gets a photo of my children and I without me noticing. These are always the ones I cherish and that's what I aim to capture with the families I photograph.
In my spare time (when I have it these days) I love to spend my time cooking, eating, running, playing with my kids, drawing, gardening and watching mindless action films!
So if you are interested in letting me help you capture some of your families best bits or get you on your way with some beautiful headshots for your new business then do get in touch. I can't wait to hear from you!
