Based in Lewes, East Sussex, I specialise in children's fashion and portrait photography. I do also take a limited number of commissions for weddings. Photography has been part of my life for the past 15 years. I have a first class degree in it and have always had an absolute passion for taking photographs since a very young age.
When I'm not taking photos, perfect days out for me are spent with my two boys and our Miniature Schnauzer sometimes on Ovingdean beach when the tide is out, paddling in the rockpools and waiting for the sun to set. Other times exploring forests; watching my boys climb trees, or making dens with them. I love being outdoors, long muddy walks, forests, beaches... I also love discovering inspiring locations; just something that really excites me. Finding a campsite with an amazing stream to paddle in or stumbling across a vast poppy field are things I will never tire of. So too does light. Seeing beautiful early morning light stream through a forest, glistening light shimmering across a river or the magical light that comes after a rain storm when the sun starts to break through; it is why I love what I do!
Exploring things in a way I used to as a child, going off for long adventures pretending to be like Swallows and Amazons, play that was exciting and real. So with my children it has been hiding from the Gruffalo in the forest, going on long exciting walks without a map or staying out late on the beach jumping over the local rock pools and watching the sun set.
Essentially an adventure without knowing exactly what will happen and this is how I like to work on a portrait shoot. A sense that we will create something magical and very personal together, and allow the unexpected to happen, as I feel this is what childhood is all about.
