               Surrey Family Portrait Photographer              

About

I am a freelance family photographer based in the Redhill/Reigate area of Surrey.  I specialize in taking portraits within a natural environment in locations important to my client as an individual. This includes, the home environment, outdoors or anywhere else unique to the client.

I also offer studio photography which I bring to the comfort of your own home, allowing you to have a mixture of studio and natural images if you wish to do so.


My style is natural and beautiful, capturing my clients’ personalities and spirit.   My images represent a moment in time and the emotions that go with this. In my close up shots, I often use the technique of Bokeh which is Japanese for ‘haze or blur’. This enables the subject to stand out from the haze of the background and has a personal and almost mystical effect.


I feel privileged to be able to document family history in this way and bring people joy from my work.  My lifetime interest in photography developed into a passion since the birth of my son in 2008. 


Being a mother to two young children gives me a good understanding of the dynamics and challenge of family life.  I am a people person, I love children and the family environment.  I am flexible and understanding and have no problem with the sessions being slightly longer, as young children often need a chance to recuperate and perhaps have a snack part way through the shoot.


Previously I worked in Office Management & Administration before deciding to pursue Photography as a career. I graduated from the University of Surrey, Roehampton in 2004 with a 2’1 BSc Psychology degree.  I am fortunate to have been able to transfer my previous office, people skills and educational background to my business in order to pursue my passion.
