Capturing family memories
REAl moments, for a lifetime
Around the time I had my son, I came across the concept of the "longest shortest time" - referring to this fleeting period that parents spend with their children, and how quickly it passes us by. As a mum I know how busy we as parents get, and how documenting family memories can be difficult in the hustle & bustle of everyday life. I love spending time with families around London to capture these memories together. Family photography is beautiful and meaningful, and I look forward to creating work that your family will cherish.
Since the time I picked up a camera I've always been drawn to capturing people in everyday moments - on the street, in their homes, at work and at play. After I became a mother, a natural connection emerged between my work as a photographer and documenting families. I love finding the magic in a moment of family playtime, a sweet cuddle with a newborn, and the exciting anticipation of a maternity photoshoot. I work with natural light and a true-to-life, documentary style to create family photographs that will feel timeless for years to come.
Having a baby around the start of pandemic nudged me in the direction of starting my own family photography business in London, to have more flexibility and time for my family!

In my spare time I run a small textile studio, where I enjoy natural dyeing, sewing and making classic hand-stitched patchwork quilts from linen, wool, and cotton.

My home office also doubles as my craft studio, where I do various fiber-based things like spinning, weaving, and tapestry making! My goal for 2023 is to learn how to knit.

While I don't get nearly enough time to read these days, I enjoy non-fiction and the occasional crime thriller, as well as listening to audio books when I'm working in my studio!
