As a creative gymnast I jump between taking pictures, advertising, graphic design, architectural concepts, house renovations, complete interior design, kitchen design and sourcing a huge range of high-end materials both economically and innovatively.
I am also known as a professional photographer. Although my family know me best as mum and capable wife.
I have been a photographer for over 20 years now, and my work is largely instinctive. When I started I had no idea what would happen but thankfully people liked my pictures and started buying them! When I began photographing weddings, I quickly created a unique style, working fast and capturing informal shots as well as semi-posed “set up” scenes. I wanted the wedding party to enjoy the day, relax and have fun because a lot of the day revolved around the photographs and the last thing anyone wants is to be wondering when the photo’s are going to finish!
I spent weeks going to seminars in the uk and abroad, learning first hand from the most successful international photographers. My speciality was modelling clients to get the best possible pictures and always striving for the ultimate image for national competitions. All this helped build an multi award-winning business and the work got more varied, covering all kinds of events, commercial product shots, private parties, informal portraiture, photographing royalty, celebrities, pop stars, sports champions and the occasional film star.
I recently took a break to have our two lovely children, Alex and Bradley. That of course meant the photography was on hold commercially, but gave me the chance to take lots of pics of my own babies!
Now I’m getting things started again with help from my husband, Mike.
My aim is to create fantastic pictures, capturing what you want to see and remember. I believe this is best done through an informal approach that helps you, the customer, relax and helps me capture the right moment.
I’m available for private parties, informal portraiture, school and nursery shoots, weddings, corporate events and commercial photography. I have experience in covering any size of event having access to a complete professional photographic team if necessary. As for travelling distance – I’ve worked in Scotland, Uk wide and have been flown abroad at my client’s request!
If you have an idea that is a bit different, why not give me a call and we’ll see how it can be done!
