Hi, I’m an award-winning photographic artist who uses unscripted and creative photography to capture emotive, keepsake images across West Yorkshire. Specialising in families (of all shapes and sizes), occasions, and maternity and newborn photography.
The reason I chose lifestyle photography is that awkwardly posed, perfectly lit, well-presented family portraits are really not for me. I love the honesty and straight-forwardness of documentary style photography. Grubby kids, messy homes, real emotions, and true personalities; that is where I find my perfection. Some of my own favourite family photos are those that are taken without any planning; they are just spur of the moment events, that without those images, would have disappeared into distant memory. But when I look at those images it’s like stepping into a time machine and I am back there; right in that moment!
Also, I truly believe that it is so important to document as much as we can; from the big days like weddings, graduations and birthdays – right through to the simple day to day stuff; trips to the park, bath time, sleep times and tantrums. I truly believe that every moment of your life is important and my job is to encourage you to capture it all!
My unscripted sessions are fun and relaxed and they can take place either in your own home or at a favourite location where you literally feel right at home! Capturing moments as they happen while you go about your day. Freezing in time those little things that make up the big things; resulting in a wonderful gallery full of unique, personal moments in which your real personalities shine through!
