IT'S ME... HI!

Since receiving my first camera at 15 years old, I’ve worked my way up to shooting with big name fashion and e-commerce brands. I have shot everything from model and lifestyle photography, to product and event photos.
Over the years I’ve captured brands, businesses, individuals, couples, and families in a relaxed and authentic way.

I understand how to help people feel relaxed in front of a camera to capture your true self, and how to help business owners show up and shout about their amazing work.

My aim is to make my clients feel supported, relaxed, confident and powerful.


Warmth and authenticity are at the heart of what I do.

Do you shoot weddings?
Unfortunately I don't. Wedding photography is a specialism, and I find that I shine in smaller groups and one-to-one settings. 

There are so many amazing wedding photographers that have spent years learning the craft and thrive on the buzz, so I will leave the weddings to them.

How much do you charge?

I have a pricelist here that covers most shoot types. These prices cover shoot prep, travel within Northamptonshire, the shoot day itself, retouching, and more. If you are looking for something else then please don't hesitate to get in touch and I can draw up a quote for you.

I don't live in Northampton, do you travel?
Absolutely! I would love to work with you, no matter where you are based. Travel costs outside of Northamptonshire are an additional cost. It covers my petrol/ticket, and any accommodation I need if travelling back the same day isn't feasible.


Did you go to university? What did you study?
Yes I did! 

I went to university to study Media Production, which covered photography as well as film, tv, radio and graphic design.

I actually specialised in graphic design rather than photography.

I do not think you need to have a degree to become a professional photographer.

Did you always want to be a photographer?

It’s safe to say that the photography bug got to me early. When I was a child, one of the very first toys I remember was a toy camera. I used to go around the house taking ‘pictures’ of my family, watching their eyes light up when they posed for me.
However, doing photography professionally always felt out of reach. Self-confidence issues prevented me from believing that I could achieve this goal, but it didn’t stop me learning and progressing.

How did you become a photographer?
At university I focused more on broadening my skills across media production and marketing to become more "employable", but photography always ended up playing a huge part of every role I had. 

I set up my own photography business after I was made redundant in 2023. I did a lot of thinking about what my next step would be and I realised that waiting until I was "ready" to start my own business would mean that I would never start.

Life is too short to not take risks.

Why are you so open about your mental health on your business pages?
I want people to know that I understand how it feels to be self-conscious, camera-shy, to suffer from imposter syndrome, and have self-doubt.

By being open about my experiences and encouraging others to share theirs, I hope to reduce stigma and let people know that they are not alone in how they feel.



Think I'm the right person for the job?

Or simply fancy a natter?
