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...

Good photographs are taken not with the camera. Good photographs are taken with Mind, Soul, Eyes, and Imagination where Eyes like a shutter, Mind like a lens, Imagination like an object and Soul like a canvas.

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.

I feel extremely privileged being a part of your story and can’t wait to meet you to capture you own special moments in time.
