My grandfather gave me my first camera when I was very young which is when I first got the bug and pretty soon I was snapping anything that moved. In my 20s I took a Master’s in photography, and went on to assist a photographer and then to manage a photography gallery – you could say I’ve been immersed in photography all of my life. Over the last seven years as a full-time family photographer, I’ve photographed 1000s of children and their families.
I absolutely love taking natural photographs that bring out your child’s innocence and curiosity, preserving unique moments that your family can treasure for years to come. I feel incredibly lucky to have a job that I love. It’s such a privilege to be invited into people’s homes to capture intimate moments of family life. It fills me with awe every time.
I’m proud to have supported Street Child by donating my photography – such a great charity, creating educational opportunities for some of the world’s poorest children. I’ve also had the immense privilege of running photography workshops for patients at Trinity Hospice and for Homerton Hospital as well as Dulwich Picture Gallery’s programme for older people. Their art programmes are inspirational and really lifts the spirits of the participants.
When I’m not photographing, I’m juggling my own family, sharing cuddles with my six year old, taking time out to travel, squeezing in a few staycations here and there, running, doing Pilates and playing tennis. Things that get my creative juices flowing: beautiful skies, interior design and architecture, and, of course, amazing light.
