I love to work with natural light and enjoy what that brings to my location shoots. How it can create moods and pick out detail within my images.
My portraits have an authenticity and honesty about them. I find myself making decisions about when to shoot in order to catch something faithfully whilst perhaps revealing something unexpected to help tell your story.
My photographs show an attention to detail and often reveal expression, a show of feeling or thought. I love showing beauty amongst the everyday in my photographs too.
Very few scenes in life are ever repeated exactly and for people and animals and their behaviour, never. Being able to record these moments for clients is a pleasure. Alongside this, I try to capture a bond. A connection between people, and people with their beloved animals.
I love it when I look at my images and feel that I’ve caught something special. The most special moment.
Above all, my images are designed to resonate with emotion and stand the test of time.
As a former primary school teacher and having grown up on a small holding in Northamptonshire, I’m an expert on my favourite subjects; children and animals.
My teacher training is invaluable when dealing with camera shy children and pets. Whilst my knowledge and experience from owning a Warmblood and training with the British Horse Society means I have a very good understanding of horses.
It was after many compliments about my eye for composition and light in my portraits, that I took the plunge and set up as a professional photographer in 2011 and have never looked back.
I have great relationships with all my clients and have made many friends along the way. My proudest moments are visiting, years after a shoot, and seeing my pictures displayed in homes and businesses throughout the Cotswolds and beyond.
