Captivating photography of brands, boudoir and families

Photography is one of those things that I can't remember a time it hasn't been there in my life.  From my first Instamatic camera aged 8, to my Dad and his life-long obsession with camera kit (who still terrorises every camera shop proprietor in the South of England), a bit of modelling followed by a degree in multimedia and my warm-up career as a web developer - cameras have always been there. Family photography was my first love as a professional photographer when I started in 2010, expanding to boudoir and commercial photography, realising that my passion for portrait photography centres around forging lasting relationships with my clients and helping them build confidence in front of the camera. Trust is at the core of what I do and I'm very passionate about it.

I use my skills to support charitable causes as much as I can - having been involved in several fundraising projects for breast cancer research, a cause close to my heart, as well as local charities (more below). A firefighters calendar and my lockdown portrait series 'Children of Salisbury' have been particular highlights and my work has taken me to some fascinating places. I've even photographed a submarine missile. Yes really.

I know I've had a good shoot if I'm either filthy dirty or my beloved waders have had an outing. I always seem to end up in water just like my bonkers spaniel (are dogs like their owners or owners like their dogs? Never quite sure) and my waders have even developed their own little fanbase on Instagram.

 

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, tracked the Milky Way from the middle of the ocean and seen 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.

Breast Cancer Portraits

I offer a charitable service 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 photography.
