About

Hello!

Thank you for visiting my website.

I'm based at my studio in Stoke Newington, North London, N16 and also go out and about to weddings, parties, park shoots and clients' homes.

I undertake all kinds of portraiture from newborns, older babies, family groups, weddings, events, parties, corporate portraiture, authors' book covers, actors' headshots and more recently, portraiture for social media. I strive for a dynamic & contemporary style, in colour and black & white, which captures the essence of the person through expression and movement.

I was inspired to become a professional photographer during my gap year travelling through Asia, the Middle & Far East. Upon returning to the UK, I studied for a degree in Photography at Newcastle College, School of Art and Design.

After this, I worked in London gaining valuable experience as an assistant photographer to a wide variety of photographers, working in fashion, advertising, portraiture, food, location and still life.

After my first child was born in 2002, I left the long hours of commercial photography behind and started my own business. My daughters are now aged fifteen and eleven years old.

My client list includes Hackney Council, Ownfone, Puffin Books, Olive Loves Alfie, Kozikidz Outdoor Clothing, Junior Magazine, The Observer and Timeout Magazine, The sun (family travel section) many times, and of course, all the numerous wedding couples and local families.

I look forward to meeting you!
