I'm a photographer, videographer and mom of boys (even including the dog) living village life near Stourbridge in the West Midlands. I'm very laid back, obsessed with outdoor adventure and dedicated to preserving as many memories as I can in individual pearls of nostalgia.
I live every day reminded that these moments will not last; the vivid memories will one day be slowly fading, fragmented images that I can only replay in my mind. That is why I try and freeze the moments to stop them fading and preserve them forever in little nuggets of life that can be shared and loved and relived.

You're probably wondering what to expect if you choose me to capture you and your people.
Well, I get to know you as real people and I can't guarantee that we won't actually become mates IRL outside of me doing my camera thing. I'll get overly excited at the prospect of meeting your dog, be very open to any ideas you have, however alternative or creative, and go with the flow as much as possible.
You can expect me to ask all the questions, find some unique things out about your relationship and know that I'm gonna surprise you with some of the most personal touches along the way. I'll become your mate, your third wheel and your personal hype man and I absolutely can't wait.
You can stop your search because honestly, I've got this down for you.
MORE ABOUT ME
MY GO-TO COFFEE ORDER:
Not coffee... I try and be a trendy coffee-drinking hipster every now and then but immediately realise I'm just not that cool and wish I'd have gone for a tea.
So, English breakfast tea all day long over here.
You should probably know that I am an avid tea drinker, (and I am excited at the chance to use the word 'avid' in an actual sentence) to the point where we found out the exact blend of National Trust tea - hands down best I've ever tasted.
THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE ME:
Laid-back, open-minded, adventurous
MY FAVORITE PHOTOSHOOT LOCATION:
GO-TO PARTY TRICK
I can still do the splits. I say 'still' because I recently tried for the first time since I was about 16 and could still get down there, but getting back up was another matter entirely...
I gave you two for one there, you're very welcome.
I can only apologise to my 14-year-old self, but the chazza bargs are so worth it.
WHAT I FILL MY EARS WITH
When I'm allowed to listen to anything other than Blippi and the Sea Shanty Remix (thanks, children) you'll find me filling my ears with mostly pop punk from the 00's (the best time), folk music or podcasts.
"WHAT YOU HAVE CAPTURED IS BEAUTIFUL"
Looking through the photos made me cry!
