“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.
-Dr Suess


About Me
Photography lights my fire. I believe it is important in so many ways; the memories it records, the emotions it invokes, and the pleasure it gives. These are particularly prominent in portrait photography. After all who doesn't smile at treasured photos of their precious family and friends?
It's these special emotions and memories I want to capture for YOU. YOU can have amazing images to display in your home, view every day, and remember the special time they were captured.
I am a relaxed kind of soul that will put you at ease throughout your photo experience, whatever the genre, the outcome is the same. I work closely with my clients to achieve the look YOU want. Sure, I'll have plenty of my own ideas, but I love to hear you ideas too, what YOU want is what I do.


My Motivation
I don't like 'celebrity', I prefer 'ordinary' because it's real and much more interesting. I create in all sorts of mediums, because, ultimately, that's what I really love to do.
Hence the photography. I am totally self-taught, having received no formal training and, although it’s not the easiest way to learn, it has helped me create images in my own evolving style. I love looking at great pictures, you know the ones that speak to you every time you look at it? Those. And that's my motivation. To create images that strike a chord with people, that provoke some sort of emotion…..it's a never ending process. As Imogen Cunningham once said “Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow."

Does this sound like we might be a fit? You think you might want to work with me?
