Hello and thank you for visiting my website.
This is me
Me in a nut shell: wife, cat mum, lover of animals and all things nature has to offer, passionate photographer.
I live in the beautiful countryside of Chesterfield, Derbyshire with my husband, Jason, and our three ginger toms, Toby, Miles and Fontaine. When I'm not shooting I'm reading, at the cinema, spending time with my five year old niece, Olivia, or horse riding with my best friend Joanne who very kindly lends me her gorgeous andalusian mare, Mimosa.
My favourite and most local wedding venues are Ringwood Hall in Brimington and Van Dyk in Clowne. Venues I would love to shoot at are Hazel Gap Barn and of course Chatsworth House!
I get told a lot by other professionals that I need to "find a niche" or "be a specialist" and to that I say BLAH! I love animals, babies and children, I love romance and weddings, I love LOVE and I love photography.
If my wedding couples and their friends and family want to come back to me for their portraits too then I say yes please! I love seeing my couples again, having a catch up and watching their families grow which is why I will always offer maternity, newborn, sitter, cakesmash, family, pet & equine portraits sessions alongside my wedding photography packages. Why have one when you can have them all?
Why Book Me?
(Aside from my dedicated love of creating your beautiful imagery)
All of my wedding photography packages come with prints or albums and wall art credits as standard. Beautiful images deserve to be printed and displayed whether that be as a huge canvas above the mantle piece for all to see or as an album to be shared amongst friends and family.
Your date can be secured with me for as little as £50 with the remaining balance due 30 days before the big day.
I am professionally insured for your peace of mind, I have completed formal photography training at Norton College and Sheffield Hallamshire University and I continue my training throughout my career, regularly joining online seminars, in person photography masterclasses and genre specific talks as well as one to one training courses and group classes.
I have been trained in newborn safety and posing by award winning newborn photographer Elli Cassidy.
Most recently I have attended James Davies Wedding Photography workshop at Rossington Hall in Doncaster.
I am also available for subcontracting work for sporting and corporate events to work on behalf of a company or part of a team. As a subcontractor I specialise in equine eventing and regularly cover high level affiliated dressage, show jumping and cross country at British Eventing and British Riding Club events.
I am available as a second shooter for weddings in and around Chesterfield and Derbyshire and most of the UK.
