Thanks for taking some time out to visit my website. Let me show you how we can work together to capture some wonderful memories for you to treasure for a lifetime.
May I begin by telling you about my journey as a family photographer and my passion for capturing your story.
For me, my family is the most important part of my life. I am a daughter, a sister, a wife and an unashamedly besotted mother to my 2 gorgeous children! My family is my inspiration for being the photographer I have become today.
Photography has always been a part of me, one of the reasons I tick. My first adventure into photography came at the age of 9 when my Dad showed me how to use his SLR camera and develop film using a dark room. Throughout my teens and 20s my camera was always close by, but it’s only really since having my children that my passion for photography has grown.
Children grow up so quickly, blink and you miss it! One minute my daughter was a helpless newborn with teeny tiny fingers and toes, the next minute I saw her first smile (my heart skipped a beat!) then she was crawling, and before I knew it she was riding a bicycle! I found that it was only through taking photographs that I managed to capture these precious moments and preserve our memories to enjoy over and over again. Every day I look at the photos on our walls, and it never fails to make me smile and to remember these happy times growing together as a family.
Having confirmed my passion for family photography and my hope to give other families an opportunity to preserve their memories too; I headed back to the classroom(!) to train at East Surrey College, turned professional and qualified (with Merit) with the Professional Guild of Photographers, with whom I have been given 39 awards (a selection can be seen below). I came 3rd in The Guild’s ‘Portrait Photographer of the Year – People Category’. I am also proud to have been accepted as a member of the ‘British Association of Newborn Photographers’. I am lucky to have photographed over 400 families since I started the business in 2011, and am honoured to be considered amongst the top family photographers in the UK. My knowledge, skill and flair for creativity, have led to my confidence in delivering a truly professional, high quality and affordable service as a family portrait photographer for my clients in Guildford, Surrey and the home counties.
