Friendly family photography

Photographs connect us to our past, they remind us of those we love, feelings and stories. As a mother and a qualified Nursery Nurse (N.N.E.B) I know how important it is to record those special moments which help tell the unique visual story of your children growing up.

I have been an independent professional photographer since 2009, after finding myself redundant I decided to bite the bullet and do the thing that I had always secretly wanted to do. After training alongside other photographers, alot of trial and error and watching Youtube tutorials I became my own boss and although the road has been at times rocky and hard to navigate I have never looked back.

Taking pictures of children of all ages and abilities, my style is simply to take photographs of natural candid moments between children and their families so in years to come your family have beautiful pictures to look back on. From newborn to senior, studio photography to outdoors, dog photography and family do's, get in contact with me and let me know what you are looking for.

Parents hold their children’s hands for a short while but their hearts forever...

Family photography

Natural fun family photography outdoors or at my studio in Colchester. The photo shoots are relaxed and all about going at the pace of the children having a good time, so after the shoot you can have a choice of beautiful family portraits to treasure.

Newborn photography

I like to capture natural newborn poses of your baby sleeping or awake. I enjoy using natural light if possible for home shoots but if not I can use my studio lights. I want everyone to feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible, so you can all enjoy the experience together.

Dog photography

If you're like me and have owned a dog you will know that no-one looks at you like your dog. Animals have come to mean so much in our lives, they touch our hearts and become an important member of the family.
