I’ve been working as a creative for 20 years now. That’s even hard for me to believe when I say it loud. First as an illustrator, then a designer, then an art editor. My interest in weddings and portraits began whilst working as a designer on bridal magazines. Around that time my children were born and everything changed. I picked up the camera again, purely to document as a mother and realised the impact photographs could have on the heart when loved ones were in the frame. Some of the staff on the magazine noticed my photos and with their encouragement, I started to take on commissions. Since then I’ve never looked back. With photography I felt something more than I ever felt as a designer – a fulfillment, a bliss, a heart-racing need. It’s a discovery of pure joy when you realise you can communicate a feeling or a story with images alone, and others feel it too. “I use my eyes, my camera and sensitivity to capture people and events, but truly these photographs come from the heart.” I’m forever grateful for my life as a photographer. The feedback I get from my clients is what keeps me going. Nothing else. Just your heartfelt response to the images I’ve captured. The words below from a recent couple mean the world to me and they remind to do the best I can everytime.
“You have such a feel for the moments that matter. I remember on the day saying to myself , “Remember how you feel right now”, trying to somehow take mental snapshots of everything. Now I don’t have to worry – as I have this gift from you; a sweet, sensitive, intuitive feel for the moments and people that mean the most to us in the world.”
