hello

When I was a little girl, about six, I watched a Disney film, an old fashioned one, you know the type; lots of technicolour, lots of music, girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes. You know the kind of thing. At this point my first epiphany occurred. People did this, and this was called a job! So maybe this should be my job?

 

So I spent the next twenty years gallivanting around, wearing interesting costumes and generally showing off. Because I always had a rather low boredom threshold I added to my skills, that of director and film maker. It was fun, and very exciting. And then came a point in my life (with three small children) when I realized that I had to curtail my creative adventures in order to spend time with my growing family.

One day I sat down, a stills camera in my hand and I started to take photos. I started and I just couldn’t stop. It became my obsession. You see I could combine everything I had ever learned and express it though the camera. Now I am a portrait photographer and concentrate on Lifestyle, Fashion, and Bespoke Portraits, as well as commercial commissions. I have picked up a few awards on the way, usually made of wood, which is great for my eco credentials , but a little rubbish for my magpie tendencies.
