What’s it all about?
Lifestyle photography and travel photography.
Two different genres of photography maybe, but I enjoy both with a passion and when the two entwine, I’m one very happy lady – it’s the perfect working combination for me!
I’m based in Littlehampton, West Sussex, but at least three months a year is spent travelling around Europe with camera in hand. Some of this time involves teaching English to foreign students, rarely knowing where or which town I’m going to end up in – or for how long for that matter!
So, firstly a little about the lifestyle and portraiture sessions…
These predominately Sussex-based sessions are all about you and your personal story and there’s nothing I love more than capturing and documenting all the wonderful interactions and emotions that emerge from a photo-session or event. Things like that little shared joke or whispered secret, the joys and the laughter – and even the tears too sometimes.
Whether it is a special occasion, a day during your holiday, a mischievous toddler or capturing the priceless look of a newborn child, it’s telling your story in an artistic, sensitive and (I hope!) aesthetically pleasing way for you that does it for me.
I prefer to work within the realms of nature using and abusing the natural sources of nature’s light and beauty. So, depending on the season, your backdrop could be anything from rugged hills or calm seas to woods full of bluebells or daffodils – or even your own home or back garden. The choice is yours.
Then there’s the travel photography side of the business…
I inherited my itchy feet from my father – or was it the Bohemian blood of his father that seeped its way under my skin? Either way, it was my father who engraved the bitter, sweet gift of wanderlust into my being. New lands, new places and cultures were a way of life for me from very young, and one I embrace, revel in and want to share with you.
Sometimes I find myself in beautiful cities, sometimes in random towns in the back of beyond – though sadly rarely for long. But wherever I end up my mission is always to find something beautiful or unusual to photograph, a story to tell or an experience to share through the lens of my camera.
On a final note
Based in West Sussex and having enjoyed photography with a passion for years, the artist in me loves to capture the emotion of the moment on camera. I love creating all kinds of art forms – be it with a camera and lens or paints and brushes. To me, the journey, the sheer experience, the culminating result of the final image – it’s what keeps me alive.
