Child portraiture wasn’t a genre of photography that I had given much thought to until our son, Josh came into our lives. Almost immediately I realised what so many people had already told me; that kids grow up so fast and those precious early years are so fleeting. Fortunately I have managed to capture some of these moments along the way and so we can look back and treasure them in the years to come. This has also opened my eyes to the delights - and challenges - of child portraiture as a genre. Children grow up so fast so capturing those early memories forever is so important.
Although family portraiture is a relatively new discovery for me, I have loved getting out in our beautiful local landscape and taking pictures of the great outdoors for a few years now. Whether it's a beautiful view or the plants in a garden I love to get out with my camera and attempt to capture the scenes around me. Whilst this is normally just for fun, I am available for commissions too.
I also produce greetings cards and prints from some of my images and occasionally attend craft fairs, particularly in the summer months. If there is an image in my galley that you would like as a print or canvas or would like some greetings cards, get in touch.
Landscape was my first love and one I still try to practice as much as I can. I am lucky enough to live in a truly beautiful part of the world and travel widely around Devon and Cornwall, taking my camera whenever I can. Take a look at some of my images in the gallery.
Flowers & Gardens
Being able to spend time in a beautiful garden is a wonderful thing and if you feel that yours is looking particularly impressive this year and would like to remember it in a series of images, I would be delighted to come along and capture it for you. Get in touch and we can discuss your requirements and the time you feel your garden will be at its best.
52 Week Challenge
For 2017 I am embarking on a 52 week challenge which involves taking a photo every week based on a set theme in one of three categories (portrait, landscape and artistic). The intention is that it will really push me out of my comfort zone each week. You can see how I'm getting on in the gallery or by following me on Instagram
