I was always taking photographs when I was younger. I still vividly remember my turquoise blue 110 Halina camera when I turned 9. The reason I loved that 110 was because I could just drop a film cartridge into it. I never quite mastered 35mm film loading, (quite a few of my dads rolls of film were ruined by me exposing them to light while trying to load them into the camera) which is probably why I never pursued photography any further. I ended up like most people just buying a small point & shoot camera or using my phone's camera.

In September 2012, whilst I was going through some turmoil in my life, someone lent me their camera for a week, to get me out in the fresh air & to help me relax. That was when I truly found myself & fell in love with photography. 

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.  

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.
