I’m sitting here on about my 9th draft of “About me” and have just realised that I can’t write about me, without including you...
I always loved taking photographs from an early age. I still remember getting my turquoise blue 110 Halina camera for my 9th or 10th birthday. The reason I loved that 110 was because I could just drop a film cartridge into it. I never quite mastered 35mm film loading, which is probably why I never pursued photography any further. How could I be a photographer when I couldn’t even load the film into the camera!?
In September 2012, someone recognised my love of photography and lent me their DSLR for a week. That was when I truly found myself.
Not only am I mum to two beautiful, intelligent daughters and to a rather hyperactive rescue dog called Charlie. I am a story teller, a painter of light, a woman who captures your story so that it never fades over time. Without you. I would simply be a landscape photographer, which is where I was headed until I started to photograph people...
It’s a feeling that I cannot put into words and I still get it every time I take a photograph of someone. It’s a feeling that I don’t think will ever go away – a feeling I want to last until I am no longer strong enough to hold a camera in my hands. In June 2016 I opened my first town centre studio, which has allowed me to create beautiful portraits. This is a milestone that I am extremely proud off and also extremely grateful for, as without the continued support from my family & my amazing customers I could never have achieved this goal.
One of my biggest achievements to date was when I was crowned Wedding Photographer of the Year 2017 by Mrs2Be.ie. This award will be held close to my heart for a long time as it was thanks to my lovely 2016 couples reviewing my work & their whole experience.
I feel extremely privileged being a part of your story and can’t wait to meet you to capture you own special moments.
