Passionate people photographer, based in Norwich  …  enthusiastic portrait photographer … Family portraits especially … Particularly fascinated by trying to capture the exuberance and joy of young children making sense of the world…

Family portrait photography and children’s portraits ….

I have an enhanced DBS check and am on the update service. I have £5 million pounds public liability insurance.

30 years experience as photographer, 5 years as professional. (Previously  - 22 years in primary education, including seven years as the head of Mulbarton Infant School) I have conducted multiple photoshoots in schools and preschools throughout Norfolk, clients this year include Mulbarton Primary, Mulberrybush, Nightingale First, Colman infant and Junior, Caister Infant, Fred Nicholson Special School St Helen's preschool, and Salhouse toddler group.

Children are an amazing photographic subject. They see the world differently, and often express a lot more love and emotion than adults. Being able to capture that is both a fantastic photographic challenge, and a profound learning experience.

I also work closely with dance schools and PE departments, capturing the exuberance of young people in motion. Special fundraisers for PTAs and committees a speciality.

Probably the best way to describe my wedding photography style is modern traditional. I look for those spontaneous and distinctive – sometimes even quirky – expressions of love, joy, and happiness which spark photos into glorious life.

I want couples to look back at the photos and remember specifically how they felt when those moments were captured. My work ultimately is about the couple themselves – what they want and what makes them and their day different to every other wedding, and capturing that. They themselves and their relationship are the single most important focus for me on the day. And I also pay close attention to making the details of the day that the couples have worked so hard on, as well as some of the individual characters at the wedding, and the different elements and events which take place during the day, very much part of the visual story.

I love to produce modern, relaxed, natural, classic and clean imagery that remains as beautiful in later years as it was when it was captured.
