"I love creating beautiful images"

Photography

Based in Chorley, Lancashire, I provide lifestyle and fashion photography for editorial, commercial and private clients in all areas of the north west and further afield. With a diploma in Fashion and also over twenty years as a makeup artist, I started out at a hobbyist photographer just a couple of years ago. I simply wanted to take beautiful photos of the makeup and hair styling I had done. However, this soon developed into a love affair with the camera. I started creating and designing my own shoots with models and this year for the first time, a selection of my images was published in Femme Rebelle Magazine. This was a big turning point for me, giving me the confidence to continue with my creative work.

Influences

I have worked for several clients during my first year as a professional photographer. I recently completed a fashion photography workshop with Lara Jade Photography who's work is a great inspiration to me. I also collaborate with my colleague Andy Park at Onyx Studio when a professional studio location is required. My influences include old Hollywood movie stars, quirky beauty, fairy tales, fine art, story-telling, colour and nature. 

Makeup and hair styling 

Depending on the size of your wedding party, I am able to provide a hand-picked team of talented stylists to assist me. I love weddings and enjoy nothing more than creating beautiful flawless looks for my brides and their guests. Please take a look at my testimonials page and read what my clients have to say. I have developed an extensive portfolio which is updated constantly. I has a long list of awards and achievements within the beauty industry, including: The Vintage Hair Lounge 'Vintage Hairstyling for the Camera', Lynette Page 'Special Occasions Hairstyling', House of Makeup 'Fashion & Photographic Makeup' and Stephanie Brinkerhoff's 'Bridal Hairstyling'. My aim is to create makeup and hairstyles that not only capture your theme perfectly, but flatter and enhance every age, shape and size. Your makeup will last from morning until evening because of the cosmetics and techniques I use in application. I use only the highest quality makeup and hair products and am a Kryolan, Jane Iredale and MAC pro member. My work commences once you have secured your rehearsal. I do a great deal of research and study beforehand, so am well-prepared when we have our initial meeting. Note: Please read my terms & conditions of booking and price list before making contact so you have all the details needed before you make your enquiry.

At your rehearsal I will go over your requirements and make a plan that will suit both your personality and unique style.

On your wedding day my focus lies not only in ensuring that you and your guests look your most beautiful, but I will do her utmost to make it a personal and relaxing experience. I will plan a schedule which allows plenty of time, so you will feel pampered and stress-free, allowing you to enjoy your wedding day preparations fully.
