“Photography is a way of feeling, touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever…It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything”

I'M AN ADVENTURER, WIFE, MOTHER AND LOVER OF HUGS
I’ve been incredibly lucky to experience some of the most jaw-dropping places on Earth. I’ve watched the sun set on Mount Everest, the Milky Way in the middle of the ocean and the morning sun turn the Alpine mountains into a white sea of diamonds. I’ve jumped off turquoise waterfalls in the Grand Canyon and my adventurous spirit is always looking for new challenges and explorations.
But as much as the wonders of our big blue planet feed my soul, the smaller pleasures closer to home bring simpler, but just as special, meaning. A snuggle on the sofa with my kids (though it needs bribery these days), a really good bar of chocolate or the pure indulgence of a back scratch.
When I'm not photographing, I'm an ambassador for SayYesMore, ski as often as I can and run through the woods with my four-legged friend.
I also really like my waders.
Children of Salisbury - Life After Lockdown
A CHARITABLE PORTRAIT SERIES EXPLORING THE POSITIVE EFFECTS OF LOCKDOWN ON SALISBURY'S CHILDREN
During June - November 2020 I photographed 112 of Salisbury’s children, compiling a series of portraits that chronicles how, despite upheaval and challenge, these children found real positives from their lockdown experience. Heartwarming, uplifting stories of how children discovered a love of nature, even their own siblings(!), undertook physical challenges, helped their community. Many many more, each one with a unique story.
It is a body of portraits that document a generation of children in the wake of this unprecedented event in their lives, and how the effect of lockdown has shaped their view on what is important to them and potentially how they live their future lives.
We raised £5000 for The Stars Appeal and Action for Children, and produced a limited edition book of the children’s portraits and their stories – copies of which presented to Earl of Pembroke and Duchess of Cambridge as patrons of the charities.
Breast Cancer Portraits
I run a charitable venture offering sensitive portraiture to women affected by breast cancer, aiming to help restore confidence and self-esteem for ladies who have been affected physically and emotionally at a time in their lives when they feel at their most vulnerable. Having been through it myself, I am all too aware how the often disfiguring treatment can erode our feelings of femininity, desirability and self-worth and I get immense joy at helping these women back on the road to emotional recovery through beautiful intimate portraiture. For more information, please get in touch or see the Breast Cancer Portraits page.
