About Me, Prices & Contact

Professional qualified freelance Photographer and Retoucher, with years of experience, based in Hertfordshire England.

 

 

I graduated in 2008 with my BA HONS Digital and Lens Media Degree and shortly after, began my freelance career.  I have photographed various sessions over the years including fashion, portraits, products, events and corporate images, as well as babies, toddlers and families of course!

 

During my previous employments, I have worked as the Head Photographer within a popular Family Portrait Studio, and am also an experienced retoucher from my employment within a leading UK Fashion Studio.  

 

Since having my daughter in 2018, I have reignited my passion for baby and children photography, as well as family photo shoots.  There is nothing I love more than providing families with gorgeous images of their precious little ones, photographed and edited completely by hand with love and care to give you the best end result possible and to treasure forever!  It is also a priority to me that my photography is affordable - I firmly believe everyone should be able to have the opportunity of professional images of their family.  Becoming a parent made me appreciate professional photos of babies even more, capturing every detail as they don't stay that little for very long! 

I am extremely experienced working with children, with past employment and work experience at schools, and aim to make my sessions as fun and interactive as possible, from newborns to
any age!  My style of photography is relaxed, fun and modern - I don't like overly posed or tightly wrapped baby shots!!
