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 9 505050 Jamie

How long does it take for you to like someone?  I’m a love you till you give me reason to question what I did wrong kind of girl. Jamie is the kind of young woman that many women might avoid on first sight.  Tall, beautiful, big smile, amazingly fit..she is the kind of woman that intimidates many at first.  She absolutely doesn’t deserve that.  I wasn’t intimidated, I was in awe!  Jamie looked amazing and I congratulate that, she takes great care of herself.  But, then again, beauty and success doesn’t intimidate me, ugliness of heart and mind does. Name: Jamie Burke Occupation: Personal Trainer & Co – Proprietor of VI Levels Gym Winter Garden & Mum of a 3 year old gorgeous boy & 6 year old beautiful daughter. 1.Where were you born and raised? Toronto, Ohio (A very small community with less than 5,000 residents not that far from the border of Canada) Jamie is very proud of her home town, the people, the community, they come together as family and support one another which at times in her life has been very important to her. Disney bought Jamie to Florida as a Business Management Student where she eventually ran a hotel, but never stopped her passion which was training & personal training. 2. Tell me a childhood memory. ‘You always love seeing your parents proud, I remember being good at track and being really good in my area.  My Mom, she was always proud of us but never said it but I remember she was at every track meeting, she would be there with this big video... read more

Day 8 50/50/50 Craig

I needed to hear a good story today..not as in reach for the tissues, tragic kind of story, but a happy wholesome had a nice life story. I’d been walking about for a good hour, I lost some confidence today and just didn’t see anyone who caught my attention. One good thing about my search for a subject was discovering the town I was in.  Winer Garden in Orlando, a charming little place with lots of features you’d find in some cool, indie, low budget movie! Behind the town coffee shop I spotted another business, a gift shop.  It was quiet on the streets today so thought that perhaps the sales assistant wouldn’t be too busy to talk to me. I walked in to find it was a charming Christian Shop, with lots of items from Jerusalem and a lovely interior with a peaceful atmosphere. Craig greeted me with warm eyes and a big smile, we exchanged pleasantries and he asked if I had any questions..well of course I did, 6 to be exact! Once I convinced Craig gently that I wouldn’t interfere with him working or bother his customers he was happy to chat. Name: Craig Naugle Occupation: Store Manager for the Silver Shekel Where were you born and raised? Toledo, Ohio. Craig was homeschooled, for religious reasons.  The family were strong Christians and wanted to train their children themselves and felt that, that was a God given gift. 2. Tell me a childhood memory. ‘I was a paperboy, I had a little red trolley I’d pull with all the papers in it and each house would have... read more

Day 7 50/50/50 Dienne

I heard her before I saw her. I needed energy today, I was feeling tired and a little low, I felt I was lacking the energy to support my subject.  T o approach them with the confidence they need in order or give me their story. It’s a Sunday.  Never a good day for me, but then thats my story. So I heard Dienne, then I saw her.  Bright & bubbly, adorable freckles across her caramel coloured face..a rainbow of colours for her hair.  Hello gorgeous, today I am taking to you. Approaching Dienne must have been the easiest subject ever..I told her what I was doing and she whooped and said Yes! You’d think she had won the local lottery. Name: Dienne Husbands Occupation: Sales Assistant Comic Book Store Standing in front of me is a young woman with the most beautiful attitude.  Positive, brave and seeking the best in everyone.  This will keep her in good stead for life,  a few will take advantage, she’ll give them the benefit of the doubt, she won’t get hard cause that isn’t the way she was built.  Some will hurt her because they can but she will smile, count her blessings and will always look on the bright side.  I like Dienne..I remember her.  She was, is, me. ‘My name is Dienne Husbands I am a 23 year old female that works in a comic book store!’ Where were you born and raised? ‘I was born in Orlando and raised a good majority in Orlando and then thrown back and forwards between here and there at least three times a year. My... read more
