I help people just like you create precious memories. Portraits of you and your loved ones that radiate just how beautiful you really are.
Portrait photography creates lasting memories
Your portrait, your family photo, become priceless. They are more than just photographs - they are lasting memories. Memories that you will revisit time and time again, but will outlive us both and become a treasured heirloom for generations to come.
Why you deserve portrait photography
Why are you worth this? This is a question many struggle with. Why are you worth spending money on, and who wants a timeless fine art portrait of you anyway?
Well, aside from the obvious answer - that you do, and you are worth it because you are you - the truth is this is not all about you.
This is about the people who love you. The people who will miss you when you are gone. The people who will love you when you are a grandmother or grandfather. Your grandchildren and their children. The person who sleeps or will sleep next to you each night. And you. You, who will look back at your photograph in thirty, forty, fifty years and think to yourself, 'Wow. I really was beautiful...and happy. Look at my eyes and that smile!'
Once you have experienced this, you will understand the value for you, because you will be and see yourself transformed: the very best version of yourself.
Relax, I've got you
Getting a professional portrait taken can be tricky. There is the stress of getting out and ready and coping with the rest of the family as you bundle them into the car. Then there is the worry that the children will get bored, you will have to cope with a new situation and what if it all goes wrong?
On top of this there you can hear that voice in your head that never lets you forget you're too fat, too old, not this, not that. That you're not enough. That you're not worth it. Then there is the pressure of everything else in your life. It feels like there is no time. Getting the family ready and out on time and all looking their best feels one step too far.
With me, things are so different. Your portrait session is so simple...I come to you.
Every portrait photograph that you see in these web pages has been photographed in a home or at a favourite place. During your photoshoot, I will take you through every step, every pose. I show you how to relax in front of my camera, and we will capture the real beauty within you. You can relax knowing that the children are at home and can go play, you have a whole wardrobe to try out, and if your makeup needs a little help, then that will be no problem.
I am here to show you that you too are beautiful.
There is no secret, and no-one is 'photogenic' without skilled lighting, make-up and posing, standard tricks of the trade used to turn ordinary people into those miraculous creatures you see in magazines. What I do, in addition to this, is make you feel so beautiful that it glows through your eyes. Confidence in who you are, and who you want to be.
