Behind the Lens
Firstly thank you all for joining me on my journey. Whilst my professional portfolio is still growing I thank everyone that has given me the opportunity to become a part of their lives. I am very humbled by the opportunities that this career affords me. I get to meet some amazing people at the most special times in their lives and do something that I love and am passionate about all at the same time, and for that I am grateful more than words can ever say Ö
I donít have a fancy story about how I got into photography except that the time just felt right and so here I am. I have been taking photos my whole life, ever since making a pin box camera in year 8 at school. (I still have the photo I took and developed too) I have just bought various cameraís over the years to take as many photographs of my family because I personally donít have many photographs from my childhood, so I wanted to be sure to capture as many memories as I could for our children and their families to be able to keep. I love being able to do this as a hobby and now I have decided to take it to the next level and make it a bigger part of my life.
I am a self-taught photographer & love experimenting at my own pace, and being inspired by my children, nature, and other peopleís smiling faces as well as my surroundings. I believe nature makes an attractive and beautiful backdrop so location photography is my favourite. Don't get me wrong studios definitely have their place (and I am in the process of establishing one) , I just find nature as a back drop so much more appealing, so when I get the option of getting out and about I jump at it.
I can honestly say all my clients will get my heart and soul put into their photographs. For me photography to me comes down to preserving memories, yet at the same time I know that a small part of me will be a part of that image.
Overall I am a regular person just like you. I am striving to offer a quality service at a price people can afford by using a craft that I have a genuine passion for and use that passion combined with knowledge and experience to bring you the client a sense of happiness and memories that will last you a lifetime.

A Portrait Session with Magical Memories is more than simply taking a few photographs; it is about receiving an experience that is personal and memorable. It is an experience which you can relax and enjoy knowing that I am listening to your wishes and are striving to acheive the best possible images of you and your family.
The most important thing for your Photo Shoot is to feel comfortable and relaxed on the day, I will talk and work with you on anything you are uncertain with.
I will usually try to photograph for both posed and candid images, and you should feel happy to let children roam freely as I am often able to capture them at their most playful this way.
The Portrait Session will generally last anywhere between 1-2 hours depending upon how comfortable your family are with continuing, during which time we will capture a considerable range of images.
