Hey, this is me, a photographer and business woman, who was lucky enough to turn a hobby into a career, who travels anywhere to photograph weddings, families and dogs, but is a born and bred North East country quine.

When I am not busy at this I love to spend my time being a wife, dog mum, daughter, a sister and fun loving friend. If you have met me, you will probably have met my bestie Arthur, the Welsh Terrier, who almost has as many Insta followers as my business page does and who we welcomed into our lives in March 2018.

 

Most of my down days are spent with my husband (who I met on a bus in 2005, buy me a coffee and I will tell you the full sliding doors story) travelling in our campervan Bella or eating out. We’re huge foodies, so wherever in the world we are you can guarantee we’ll be researching ahead of time the best places to stuff our faces.  We love exploring Scotland, going to the theatre and festivals and have a serious soft spot for New York (we got engaged and honeymooned there).

I never really set out to be a photographer, I studied Corporate Communication at RGU in Aberdeen, but I have always enjoyed all things creative. I bought my first ‘real’ camera in 2009 and haven’t looked back. I’ve now been shooting weddings and portraits full time for over six years and have had the pleasure of documenting 100+ since I became self-employed three years ago.

I whole-heartedly love what I do and feel very lucky that, somewhere along the way, this became a job where I feel like I have never worked a day in my life.
