“Over time you forget some of your own memories of your younger days – I can record your world as it is now, for evermore. Memories of people will always remain through photographs -as long as there are people alive who knew and loved them – they will not die.”

Family portraits

A breathtaking, emotional and crafted journey that takes you and your family picnicking in long grasses (or hunting lions!), foraging in woodlands, or ambling around walled gardens, in the landscape and environment you/your children are growing up in. Those more mature might enjoy strumming a guitar up in the tree house, or taking the full drum kit into the forest – I am known as a very strong porter! P.S. These sessions are also a lovely record of a day out before they head off to College or University.

I offer a free no obligation consultation face to face and I also offer an in-home Portrait service for those children who would feel more at ease in their own garden.


As I regard every family as unique, so is every commission. 

I aim to give you a luxury service by creating a special day for you in which every child and teen will have the opportunity to shine and blossom: the very best way to give you a collection of photographs that portray honest and genuinely beautiful expressions that reflect each individuals character & spirit.

These little details are at the heart of the portrait so I ask each family before the session what is really special and dear to their child. 



I recently created portraits for the Brookes family, you can see one of their portraits below, along with some very kind words they have said about the portraits and the experience of having me create their images for them.


 “We are so pleased with the frames and canvases, they are just so brilliant!

I just couldn’t wait to tell you how happy we are. I can’t wait until people see the pictures. We have said they really make the room homely and personal.”

Juliet, Worcester


“On our daughter’s christening, Celia you were extremely amenable to all our friends and family making everyone feel comfortable. Your own creative and innovative ideas are wonderful, a quality that is essential in our view.”

Lynne, Windermere


“Our photographs continue to bring us lots of joy every day & delight all our visitors. We know they’ll be treasured for years to come.        

Isobel, Harborne

A few single words that sum me up:- positive, calm, honest, impulsive and in love with life.

I have two teenage girls, a blondie husband who’s crazily obsessed with travelling as much as I am and two heavenly floppy eared Cavaliers called Ollie-Jim & Edward VI!

I have been lucky to to win numerous awards over the last 13 years in Portraiture, Architecture and Commercial photography.
