It’s fair to say I’d rather be behind the camera than in front of it, so this is a rare shot of me.
I’m a photographer and copywriter and spend my days telling stories through words and pictures. Lucky, lucky me. It took me a while to get here – I qualified as a solicitor before seeing the light and making the switch to a life filled with much more creativity.
I’ve trained with some brilliant training academies and professional photographers, including The Trained Eye and Kate Hopewell-Smith as well as second shooting for the photographer genius Rafe Abrook.
I’ve worked with some fantastic big brands including Signet – the name behind high street brands Ernest Jones, H.Samuel and Leslie Davis – on big events including the Brighton Marathon and for big charities, including the Alzheimer’s Society’s Memory Walk.
I’m mummy to an independent, funny, big little person, and know how precious the growing-up years are. I also know how important it is to have lovely images to cement special memories forever. Images full of character and personality. Images that give you a warm and fuzzy feeling. Images that make you want to call your friends and family and say, ‘remember when…?’ and tell them how much you love them.
We all know that kids can have their serious days and that’s all good – I come armed with a few tricks up my sleeve for those awkward moments when the kids just aren’t feeling it!
I live near Hitchin on the Hertfordshire/Bedfordshire border, grew up in the Midlands, spent almost 10 years in Hampshire and love any excuse to travel, visit new places and retrace my steps to the places I’ve called home over the years.
