Me & My Studio
Welcome to my world.
I am a 43 year old photographer living with my family in Crawley, West Sussex, and lucky enough to have been able to turn my passion into a career. I spend my days photographing and editing captured moments, frozen in time, ready to be printed and displayed in your home. Whether it's a baby's milestone or a family spending time together.
I am happy to travel to your home for lifestyle sessions, a park or woods to make the most of our seasons or you are welcome to my studio in Pound Hill, Crawley. My sessions here are very relaxed and you can enjoy a hot drink, and maybe a snooze on the sofa if it's a newborn session, whilst I focus on the posing and lighting!
When my first son was born I found that in between feeding, nappy changing and generally being a mum, the instant result of photography was something I still had time for. I also noted amongst my friends that they rarely had photos of themselves with their children, other than 'selfies'. I started taking photos of parents with their children at baby groups, to encourage taking photos of each other.
This was the start of my 'capturing family time' sessions. It's an opportunity for me to spend time with you and your children taking photos of what you actually do; play in the garden, bake, walk in the woods, go to the park, read a story, cook dinner or occasions such as decorating the Christmas tree. These photographs are also perfect for photo books and calendars.
I love taking photographs of children having fun, playing and using their imagination, to capture a photo of who they truly are

Am I The Best Photographer in Crawley, West Sussex?
How do you define 'the best photographer'? I would suggest that it's a combination of quality of images, a connection between you and the style in composition and editing, someone who understands what you are looking to capture, someone you feel relaxed and comfortable with, someone in whose hands your newborn baby is safe, someone who is reliable, someone who adapts to each session taking additional needs into account, someone who comes highly recommended and at a price you feel their work is worth. So, it's really only you who can say if I am the best for you.
I use real people in all my images, ie I do not hire child models. I have carried out all the editing myself, ie I do not out-source it to someone else. As for recommendations, please have a look under my testimonials - many thanks!
I have a clear CRB certificate.
