I began taking photographs from a very young age...back in the good old film days! 

Over the years my passion lay in making people feel good about themselves. Having been fostered and then adopted; I have no photographs of my first year of my life and I love to see the Loving Unity between a Couple, Siblings or Parent and Child/Baby.

Not having Photographs of myself I am passionate about capturing all ages in appropriate environments for their ages! 

I have a 16 yr old Son and 18yr old Daughter, and absolutely Love being a Mum!

I have a huge understanding and insight into many ages of people in life. Drawing on my history of working with pre-school children, in Reception class as a Teaching assistant, and of course watching my own two grow through the days and months which fly past so quickly! I babysat for local families at only 14 years old, and continued through the years to becoming a Mothers help and helping at home with foster children of all ages. I worked for a few years in an Elderly Care Home which I equally loved, and one of my favourite jobs was working on a farm! 

I am qualified with The Master Photography Association, and a Fellow with The British Institute of Professional Photographers, which is the highest accolade awarded to Professional Photographers in our industry. 


National Pet Portrait Award; Bronze Portrait Award in May and June 2013.

Worldwide Photographic Awards; In 2016, I was chosen along with four other Photographers to represent Team UK in these prestigious awards.
