We specialise in baby photography and children’s portraiture.

and that gets the SEO nonsense out of the way. Now you  can really find out what we’re all about.

Things I love and things I do

First of all I’m a mum of two darling children (oops went all mumsnet there!) My children drive my inspiration. I would not watch the things on TV that they watch and I’m sure my life is richer for having Lego Ninjago and My Little Pony in my life.  I still do not understand Minecraft, luckily we are on to the next craze. Pokemon is it?  As what would be classed an ‘older’ mum, (seriously I don’t know what they mean I’m only 47) having a 10 year old boy and a 7 year old girl does keep me young.

As well as taking photographs I also love to sew and crochet. A lot of the props for my themed photoshoots are created by me. I find the creativity of the two mediums go hand in hand. Sometimes I’ll be making a costume that will inspire a photoshoot other times I’ll have a photoshoot idea and then come up with costumes to make. It’s all terribly therapeutic.

Qualifications and Awards

Oh yes I won an award. A really big award. A couple of years ago I was awarded the Society of Wedding and Portrait photographers ultimate accolade. Photographer of the Year in bump and baby photogrpahy. I have a lovely crystal trophy which you can see when you come to the studio.

I hold  a Licentiate in portrait photography. This is the first rung on the ladder of proffessional qualifications and to be honest it’s teh most important one. It tests your skills as a marketable photographer and that’s all that really matters in running a photography business. I am planning on getting my Associate qualification very soon.

I do continuous professional development (training in other words!) with the head honcho at Olympus UK, Damian McGillicuddy.

Weird other stuff

I used to fix aeroplanes. Really big aeroplanes but that was over 20 years ago so you’re  probably safe to fly off on your hols now. When I stopped playing with spanners and rivets I started teaching pilots all about their aeroplanes. Those guys are still flying (except the retired ones who are probably out on a golf course somewhere).

I can tap dance – been on the stage – there’s a video somewhere but not on you tube thank goodness.

My favourite book is ‘Swallows and Amazons’. I so wanted to be Nancy Blacket. It’s been years since I sailed and if I remember rightly the last time I did  the wind dropped and it was an awfully long way rowing back across Hickling Broad in Norfolk.
