Behind the Lens

“WHICH OF MY PHOTOGRAPHS IS MY FAVOURITE?
THE ONE I’M GOING TO TAKE TOMORROW.” – IMOGEN CUNNINGHAM

Photographing people is my passion! I fall in love with every new set of photos and I’ve never lost that excitement as each new image is revealed. It’s intoxicating to capture those beautiful moments charged with emotion and the quirks of human nature. Working as a family and wedding photographer certainly throws you in the center of all that makes us human. I get so much satisfaction in visual story-telling and really getting a feel of the moment.

And my style? I guess my aim is to record with an honest, editorial eye and fine art finish. I think it’s important that your images are timeless, beautiful and fun.

People have always inspired me, but as a shy child I learnt to observe and read situations instinctively, which is possibly why it feels so natural behind the camera. It’s the emotions evoked that truly make an image and being an emotional girl who wears her heart on her sleeve, I am always moved by those precious moments in life: a mother’s tender smile for her newborn or that stolen glance between nearly-weds .

My background and training is in art and design, achieving a BA (hons) in 2004. I’m also am a qualified art teacher but I love what I do too much to just teach it! I’m so lucky to have worked abroad photographing wedding and lifestyle shoots and have been published in national magazines, but for me the greatest rewards still come from working with amazing and inspiring people every day. I love my job!

I currently live in a tumble-down cottage in the depths of South Norfolk with my fantastic husband, 2 mischievous children, Mitsy the cat, our dogs Rufus & Brodie, and soon to be added feathered friends: Hetty, Betty, Liddy & Esther! I adore my little mismatched family. They are my inspiration and motivation, and an endless source of photographs.

Some love to be the life and soul of the party, others prefer to keep a tighter ship and keep you on your toes. I like to take a different approach…read more
