Creating beautiful family photographs

About Me

I live in a very old Cotswold stone cottage in a small village perched on top of one of the many hills around Stroud. It’s fifteen years since I started working as a professional family photographer after studying Professional Media at Uni. Since graduating I have met and photographed hundreds of people celebrating a special event in their life. The occasion has mostly been a wedding and the majority have taken place in Gloucestershire although some have been further afield. I wouldn’t swap those years for anything. Creating beautiful family photographs and running my own photography business was my third career change and the best!

It wasn’t an easy decision but in August I photographed my last wedding. I will miss photographing weddings but the time felt right so from mid 2018 I am specialising solely in photographing family get-togethers and head & shoulder shots.

When I’m not working I love taking pictures of my two granddaughters who are adorable and very photogenic. I have an allotment which takes up a fair bit of my time and so does my cottage garden. I sing in our village community choir and ‘Rock Choir’ and I go walking with a friend once a week and swim as often as I can, so I’m always busy. John, my husband and I enjoy travelling, especially to South East Asia although any opportunity to have a few days away is always a treat.  There’s never enough time to do all the things I’d like to but then I guess we could all say that!

If you are looking for a professional photographer to take pictures of your special celebration – a party, a christening, a family get-together or  photoshoot please get in touch by going to my Contact Form or give me a call.
