See all, hear all, say nowt! Take the picture instead.
This is me. Don't let the surname put you off, I very rarely live up to it, although my husband might say otherwise!
I'm often asked about which type of photography I prefer. Generally, it's any genre because I like to dabble and keep my creative juices bubbling. Mostly though, I'm a portrait photographer. Photographing people is a huge buzz, especially when they're doing something they enjoy or they're just having fun and laughing together. That's when everyone is truly themselves, but I enjoy quirky too; experimenting and having fun with my photography. I love it when people come to their photography session with their own ideas too. It's a team effort and I work hard to help them achieve the imagery that they want.
So, from one to one portrait sessions, couples, family portraits, stylised, lifestyle and environmental portraits, or hobby/activity portraits, I'd be happy to work with you. If you have your own ideas and think that I can help you turn them into images, please get in touch.
I have an easy going, relaxed approach. Even in today's world where selfies are common place not everyone likes standing in front of a camera to have their photograph taken. I appreciate that it can be daunting experience. I generally feel the same, so I always have that in the back of my mind when I have someone in front of my camera. Each of us are different, and some may take time to warm up a little and get used to the feeling of having all of the attention on them. It's a perfectly natural feeling and I consider myself very fortunate to have not met anyone who hasn't enjoyed their photography session. If they're enjoying it, I'm enjoying it too. I want everyone to be very happy with their images and it's much easier to achieve that when they're feeling relaxed and enjoying the experience. Having a photograph taken by a professional photographer can be a fun experience.
If you like what you see here and would like me to work with you to create some great images, please get in touch. I very much look forward to hearing from you.
