Thank you for showing interest in my website and just what I have to offer to you! I’m all grown up but a young at heart portrait photographer – I’m an accomplished Mum of three and my children are my sun, moon and stars. Within my world photography is a subject I live for! It’s more than just my ‘bread and butter’ – it’s about creating beautifully styled, artistic images. Magic will happen! When I photograph your family, I know how precious children are, and capture those breathtaking moments of your family for you – the very essence of your heart and soul. I take limited amounts of shoots per year preferring to concentrate on providing the best photography experience for my clients, and an element of charity work with children that feeds my soul and creativity so please get in touch in advance to book your session.

I’ve honed my skills to ensure each child has a fun filled magical  CHILD PHOTOSHOOT experience. I have exceptional baby soothing skills, meaning you can sit and relax knowing we’ve planned your NEWBORN PHOTOSHOOT in advance and watch confident in the knowledge that  I will expertly and gently position your baby into those gorgeous womblike poses, when you come to view your session images you will know there will be a magical selection of bespoke and stunning images to choose from. CAKE SMASH PHOTOGRAPHY are a unique tailored experience created for each child to reflect their loves during those magical milestone moments of birthdays – not only are they fun for the child and great messy play – you’re capturing key moments of your growing child’s life and recording them forever before finishing with a splash in my gorgeous rolltop mini bath – perfect for little people! Most of my clients are repeat clients who value stunning and creative photography – a luxury newborn or child photoshoot experience in and around Essex, Suffolk, Cambridge and London. Don’t just believe me!  KIND WORDS FROM MY CLIENTS.
