About-Header

I adore the beauty of photography. The capture of a moment, the love between people, an exquisite gown, an idyllic beach…
Whether I am holding my camera in my hand or I am just in the moment, I take a picture.  A mental note and it stays with me. I became a photographer out of a love for the image.  To be lucky enough to make this my daily work is indeed a privilege. To never miss a moment, to put my subject at ease, to make someone really smile, that is what I do, every day & I do it well.

In a world awash with images of our entire lives I want to give you not a snapshot but a piece of art, a thing of beauty, something you will be proud of & cherish always. Please get in touch and lets talk about your story and how you want to tell it.

Your-Experience

PORTRAITS

PeopleMy goal when shooting portraits is to make you feel at ease, capture you looking your best and make the whole shoot a great experience. I really enjoy one-to-one portrait sessions. Whether for business, beauty or for the family album, I want to bring out your personality and show you an image of yourself that you recognise. How often do you look at a snapshot and say, ‘That doesn’t even look like me’!  Most of us don’t relish being photographed so its my job to change that and I am very confident that I will. I also enjoy photographing personalities, business people, models, professionals in sport, singers & actors..we can create a story board..shoot a variety of scenarios or just keep it simple with an elegant Black &White headshot. There are many options, whether home, location or studio. We can discuss them all and decide what is right for you.

 

 

A family lifestyle shoot lasts up to 90 mins. In the studio, your home or location.
This shoot includes a 10×8 print.

SHE SHOOTS

SheI have always enjoyed photographing women and appreciated images in art or film of a beautiful woman. There is something immensely satisfying about putting a woman at ease and introducing her to her most gorgeous self. We aren’t talking supermodels here, we are talking about you and me and the women at work or on the school run; us, the everyday women who have sometimes forgotten how beautiful we really are. Whatever collection you choose, your experience will start with a conversation, you will get to know me and start to feel comfortable. We will talk about what you love about yourself and what you don’t and imagine all the ways in which you want to be photographed and put together a plan. This isn’t a walk in-walk out experience, this is a life changer. If you are confident already, you are going to shine and if it’s confidence you lack, we are going to bring it back with style and some gorgeous images to take home too!

 


  • Your hair will be wonderfully styled as you prefer & your make up will be applied by a leading Make Up artist who will make you feel amazing.
  • The shoot will be at your home, or in a hotel or at our welcoming boutique studio where there is always a glass of something on offer
  • The shoot is a private ‘girls only’ affair…you, me and my female assistant.
  • All images are retouched and enhanced by me…this is you but on a really great day.
  • You’ll come back and see your images on a large screen presentation and decide how you want to show off your glorious self.

No special occasion required..it’s just about time you did something for you.

WEDDINGS

WeddingsCongratulations, what wonderful news, you are getting married! The next few months will be exciting, stressful, expensive but you will have the time of your life. The build up to the wedding is all part of the fun of your day, it may not always feel like it but this is a very special time. You have some difficult decisions to make and my advice…go with your heart, it knows best. What do I offer you for your wedding day photography that you can’t get anywhere else? Me, and my undivided attention to you and what you need. My photography speaks for itself. It’s emotive, beautiful and tells a story, your story, one you will look back on and remember fondly and probably shed a few tears over. That’s what wedding photography should be all about. I offer a relaxed style and although ever professional, you will never feel pushed, or dominated or told what to do.  I am there to capture your day as you want it. Advice? I have plenty to give and that comes free of charge!

 

On a practical note this is how we work:
  • Intitial meeting and as many meetings required thereafter.
  • We talk through your timings, write group shot lists, visit the venue.
  • On the wedding day, we will turn up at the time agreed, normally two/three hours before the ceremony to capture all those lovely details you have spent so long organising … and we stay right through to the 1st dance, normally leaving about 9(ish) never before.
  • The very next day we send you an amazing showcase image Free of Charge to share with all your friends and family and when you get back from Honeymoon we will arrange a time to meet and view all your images on a large screen presentation for the first time.
  • All of your fully edited images will be supplied to you in colour & black & white on your own custom printed USB Boxset with 10 Chosen Prints
  • To book I ask for a £400 deposit and payments are made at 6 months and 6 weeks prior to the wedding. Wedding Service Fees are all due prior to the event.
  • Engagement Shoots are available on request, please ask for pricing details.

Day 50 50/50/50 Bob

Well how did that happen?  50 days have been and gone.  It only highlights to me how time flies.  How long I have been out of the UK.  All the people I care about that I need to speak to since I left and how little time we all have to enjoy each other. My next subject epitomises for me the ‘Brooklyn/New Yorker’.  The two may say they are very different but for the rest of the world, pretty much the same.  I saw Bob for the first time when he served me in Publix.  It struck me in that moment, regardless of how good he was at his job, that he looked entirely out of place in his position.  I got that perhaps this was a temporary, perhaps semi retired role for him and not to put it down at all but imagine a heavy weight boxer in a florists and it strikes you a little out of the ordinary. I am stereotyping I know, forgive me I’m of that generation.  I also knew immediately that Bob had been a Police Officer, just a hunch. My daughter was with me and we both knew he would be an ideal candidate for the project but as he was busy working so I couldn’t talk to him that day. Today I considered I needed to go all out, where should I go, who should I look for.  Then I realised that went against everything I felt about this project and I should just look for that every day ordinary but special person and I’ll know when I see them. I got in my car... read more

Day 49 50/50/50 Ummarid Eitharong

My next subject definitely humoured me with his time today.  He is a well established, world know, multi award winning artist of mature years and he has probably been ‘interviewed’ many times.  I saw his work first then I saw him.  His work and appearance both create enough stimulation for you to stop and pay attention. I didn’t intend to speak to another artist today, there were thousands of people but I saw him and liked his face.  There is something mysterious about many artists and it draws you in, their skill for their work fascinates me.  Perhaps my attraction is a subconscious desire for their creativity to rub off on me, insider information, a deeper understanding or it may just be that they all look so cool and laid back that I just like being around them. ‘Tonys’ eyes danced when he talked, he found amusement in everything, I think he probably chooses very carefully who he spends his time with and everyone else is just noise around him, his visual amusement is another way of dispensing with you.  I’m not offended by that, he wasn’t in the least bit rude to me but I was probably annoying and unnecessary to his thoughts and attention today, I imagine this is a man who is happy in his own company in his studio most of the time. His lovely, long term girlfriend sat and watched the exchange between us, she didn’t partake in the conversation, I am sure very used to the attention he attracts and was just listening, smiling every now and then. I would have liked more time... read more

Day 48 50/50/50 Alex

It’s my beautiful girls birthday today, so fitting that she should be my subject.  My daughter is growing into a beautiful young woman and it is bitter sweet.  Sometimes I look at her and it is breathtaking how lovely she is and that scares me too as I want her to stay my crazy little girl.  The one who loves ‘Piggy’ her beloved stuffed toy, princesses and unicorns and all things shiny. Alex is a creative, so much more than me.  She lives in a world of rainbows and fairytales.  Spends her days singing, dancing and dreaming, which as her Mum also drives me mad!  Focus isn’t her thing but I do try to tell myself that its her personality and although I lose the plot sometimes because she is disorganised and unprepared, I don’t want her to change because she really is perfect as she is. Name: Alex Occupation: Student 1.Where were you born and raised? Winchester, Hampshire. ‘I have lived in Windlesham most of my life.’ ‘I live with my Mum, my Dad and my two brothers. It’s been a good childhood. It’s good because I have great family and they always support me in what I do.  They make sure I do exciting things in my life even it it doesn’t benefit them.’ 2.Tell me a childhood memory. ‘I remember always singing with Charlotte and some other girls at Windlesham Infant school, High School musical.  I was always Sharpay because I was blonde and my friend Charlotte was always Gabriella ’cause she had brown hair.  We used to sing duets and we would hang from the play... read more
