As my friend threw his little nephew up in the air, giggles getting louder and louder, I pressed the button on my ancient, bright red, plastic point and shoot (it was unkillable!). When I developed the film, immediately I had a huge smile on my face – yeah, my framing was off and back then I knew nothing about natural lighting but it captured the feeling – you know when you get that one iphone shot that catches the moment perfectly? That was the start of it for me.
Fast forward 15 years, following a career making documentaries for TV and film – it took just one photo shoot with a friend’s kids to see how I could do family photography in a way that was honest, raw and suited to people who are after something a bit different, those little moments you see each day and want to record forever.
Based in Richmond, London, I bring a documentary style to photo sessions in your own home, there isn’t the formality of a studio shoot, we get to hang out for an hour or so and create some great photos for your wall.
