Originally from Essex, I moved to Norwich in 2005 to complete my PGCE. 14 years later and I'm still here! I am still teaching (although part time) and started my photography business when I was on maternity leave with my son, Ollie. I also have a daughter, Annabelle, who will be starting school in September.
My Style - Weddings
Ever since getting married myself back in 2007, I have absolutely adored weddings and feel really fortunate to be able to do something that I enjoy so much. I love capturing the details of your day that so much thought and time go into as well as candid shots which really help tell the story of your day. I have a real passion to photograph every aspect of your wedding so in years to come, when you see the photos, all the memories will come flooding back.
My style is natural and relaxed; I find the best pictures I take are often when people are unaware that they are being photographed. I try to stay in the background for the most part, after all, you want to remember the day itself, not the photographer! While I would encourage you to take some time away from your guests to get some lovely couple shots, I will not infringe on your day too much; I can usually get them done in about 20 minutes. You also won't hear me barking orders at you or your guests; I find the more comfortable and relaxed you are, the better your photos will look after.
I offer a no obligation meet up so we can discuss any ideas or requirements you may have. I can also show you some sample albums so you know what each package I offer might look like.
I also offer a complimentary pre-wedding shoot (which includes 10 digital images) with each wedding package that I offer. I find this particularly useful if you are not keen on having your photograph taken - hopefully I will put you at ease before the wedding so you can focus on the important things on your special day.
If you would like me to capture the story of your day then please get in touch, I am looking forward to finding out all about your plans!
My Style - Lifestyle Photoshoots
I have a desire to capture the true personality of your child and take photos with a mother's eye. I only shoot using natural light and in natural settings to achieve this so if you have a favourite park or beach that you like to visit, it might be the perfect spot to get some lovely images for your walls.
My style is relaxed. I love getting to know you and your child before the shoot so like to spend a bit of time discussing your needs and ideas first but I find I get the best images when children and families do what they would do whether I am there or not so I try and stay in the background for the most part of the shoot.
Motherhood and teaching have taught me patience so if your baby/child needs feeding or soothing that's fine - I always ensure your child's needs come first.
