As a parent, I frequently wish I could ‘stop the clock’. Just hold my boys at a certain moment in their life, a specific phase in their development but time just flies and the moments are gone, that is why photography is such a gift for any parent, it gives you the power to capture that moment forever.
And that’s exactly why I love what I do – the opportunity to create natural imagery that captures the moment – not merely just a treasured memory – a tangible, visual reminder.
It is an absolute privilege to spend time with you, getting to know you and making sure I capture the best moments that will be treasured for a lifetime. The shoot itself is only part of the experience.
How I work…
Before I even get the camera out of the bag I like to have a chat, perhaps over a coffee, about you all and discover what you would love from the photo shoot and how the memories will be viewed long after the shoot.
Do you have a favourite destination you love to visit throughout the year or is your garden perhaps the one place where you all feel at your most relaxed? Wherever it is lets explore it and capture the feeling it gives you.
I’ll be with you every step of the way, from getting to know you, deciding on a fabulous, timeless look for the occasion to making sure you are all totally comfortable with being in front of the camera. You’ll then re-live the occasion with a cinema screen presentation in the comfort of your own home a week or so after the shoot, I will have examples of my unique products which you can then decide will be most suitable for you.
The experience is all about you and I’m honoured to be the photographer that captures it for you.
