About Your Photographer

Why did I become a Photographer?

Photography has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.  As a child, I loved taking photographs of my family.  I have been a member of one camera club or another for over 15 years, talking to other photographers, gaining experience and expertise while enjoying my hobby.

My world changed when I became a Mummy, I want to spend as much time as I can with my family and not wanting photography to become a diminishing skill, I decided to make a career out of it, portraying family life.  So here I am, your family photographer.

I am continually amazed by the expressions that can be captured on people's faces, the way the light catches eyes and hair, and how individual people are.  You can see examples of my work in my portfolio.  Being a Mum myself, I have full respect for the needs of your children and the time this takes, so I will not rush you if it is feeding time or nap time, etc.

I am located in Tadley, near Basingstoke which is ideally situated for me to travel to locations throughout the RG postcode area, which includes much of North Hampshire and Berkshire.

Being behind the camera is only the first part of what I enjoy about photography.  The second part is the post-processing of your portraits to 'bring them to life' - figuratively speaking.  I will sit for hours editing, looking at each photograph in turn to see what I can create in a final image, whilst keeping the intended natural look.

What qualifications do I have?

August 2016: The RPS (Royal Photographic Society) Certificate in Photography.

March 2016: Maldon & Essex Lifesaving Swim Club Save a Baby's Life course .

July 2014:  A Bachelor of Science Open Degree through the Open University (mainly focusing on economics, mathematics and statistics).
