Hello and thanks for taking the time to find out a little about me.  I'm a Reading-based children and family photographer with a warm, natural and vibrant style. 

Photography has always been a passion of mine, but it was only when I had children that I started to take it seriously. I used my maternity leave to study a Diploma in Professional Photography, a qualification that has shaped and developed my love of capturing the magic and joy of childhood, set against the beauty of the great outdoors.  I've swapped working for  large corporations in IT sales to spending time with families, capturing memories and creating beautiful photographs.


I know that a relaxed Mum and Dad makes for happier children so my aim is to take pictures of children doing what they love best; stomping in puddles, sailing a toy boat along a stream, reading a book under a tree or having a picnic with their favourite teddy.  If you like the fairytale, whimsical style then I have some lovely outfits and props to help. Or you might prefer more natural images of you simply enjoying time with your family.  Whatever your preference, I will tailor each session to you and your family.


Although the idea of having a camera in the midst of a family ramble can seem a bit daunting, most people are surprised by how enjoyable my sessions are and come away having had a great time and  excited to see their photos. Whether the images are for the wall, an album or to share with family, I'm here to answer any questions and help achieve the best results for you.
