I'm a maternity, newborn and family photographer based in Hertfordshire, UK

I've been obsessed with capturing images since I was a little girl and way before digital cameras camera phones, facebook and instagram.  

When you ask people what matters most in their lives they won't say their ipads, designer handbags or other material possesions; the likelyhood is that they will say their family, friends and their memories. 

Imagine someone telling your story, your connections and recording your feelings in 1/125th of a second... well that's what I do. 

A photograph taken 20, 30, 50 years ago has the power to unlock so many emotions and memories and take that viewer back to the very day the photos was taken. For me this is what makes it an extraordinary form of media. Unlike film, which is undoubtably important, we can flick through photo albums, hang photos on our walls and display them around our homes. 

The old quote says "a picture is worth a thousand words" and when you think about it, it really is. AND  that's what I look for when photographing my clients. I look for the subtle looks between partners, the emotions of a new parent and the fun and excitment of children. 

Over the past ten years I have photographed many special occiasions included weddings and engagements; plus hundreds of maternity, newborn, family and baby photoshoots. 

I always look for the fun, mischief and of course Love in every photoshoot. 

You may have guessed by now that I am a hopeless romantic. I cry at romcoms and at John Lewis Christmas adverts. My family (2 boys and 1 very girly girl) laugh at me always for being such a "softy"! But I don't care, I love a good blub. 

So, feel free to have a look through my galleries and hopefully you can see the love and emotion that I have captured; then if you like what you see feel free to contact me and we can have a chat about what you are after.
