Being a photographer is like being an artist

I would describe being a photographer as being an artist , a story-teller and an image-maker all rolled into one. My background in fashion and beauty is the biggest influence throughout my work. I live in Chorley which is a small town in Lancashire. I work from Onyx Studio just outside Chorley town centre and I also go out on location as I love to photograph in natural light, especially in the golden hour when the light is really pretty. I am proud to be an Associate Member of the SWPP (Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers).

My invitation

My mission is to take the most stunning photographs you have ever seen of yourself. I want to photograph every woman who has ever looked at herself in the mirror and said "I'm not good enough, I'm too old, I'm not pretty, I hate having my photograph taken, I'm overweight." If you are one of those women, please believe in me when I say we can achieve something truly beautiful together. I can see the beauty in you and I can capture it in the most gorgeous and flattering way.

When was the last time you had a portrait taken of yourself?

If you have been avoiding the camera for years, now is the perfect time to step-up and do something positive for yourself. I can relate to you. The very thought can feel daunting. But it's my job to make you look your best. It will be an empowering experience and I can assure you, you are in safe hands with me. I will gently guide you through the whole process from start to finish. I'd also love to photograph you with your significant other and if you have children, photographing you all together is something we can incorporate towards the end of your shoot. So whatever your age, gender, shape or size I would love to hear from you

"Your photographs will change the way you see yourself"
