About Me



I am a contemporary portrait photographer based near Cambridge, serving Cambridgeshire and the surrounding area. My main areas of work include family, children, newborn baby, wedding, school and commercial photography.

I’ve been taking photographs for as long as I can remember. For me, my work is a passion and not merely a job. To capture a beautiful image of someone, that those around them will always treasure, is hugely rewarding. As a mother of three young children, I’m also well aware of the speed at which children grow and understand the value of lasting images that celebrate each stage of family life.

As a female portrait photographer, I find that I quickly develop a bond with the families and children that I photograph. I have an eye for those ‘special details’ at weddings and brides frequently highlight photos of their preparations in the morning and other ‘candid shots’ as their favourite images that have captured the essence of their day.

Family occasions such as children’s parties, birthdays, anniversary celebrations and christenings are also all wonderful events to capture on camera and to share with friends. I have a broad portfolio of work covering all of these; from first communions through to American-style tea parties!

Based in Hemingford Grey, Cambridgeshire, I’m happy to travel throughout the East of England including Cambridge, Huntingdon, St. Ives and the surrounding area.
