2017 {Newborn and family photographer, Surrey}

They say that when you find your passion you'll never work another day in your life and I've found this to be amazingly true since starting my business just over a year ago. I've met so many lovely people - both new clients and fellow photographers - attended some inspiring workshops, won four Bronze Awards in the The Guild of Photographers Image of the Month competition, as well as having my work featured several times on The Teabreak Tog community pages.

I'm really proud of my achievements this year and I thank each and every person who has liked or commented on my work or referred me to a friend. Your support means so much to me. I'm especially grateful to all the wonderful families I've had the joy of photographing throughout the year - it's been a huge honour to capture so many memories for you. It's impossible to share something from absolutely every session but here are just a few of my favourites from the year...

Beautiful baptism and celebration {Christening and baptism photographer, Carshalton Beeches}

I recently had the pleasure of photographing a beautiful baptism full of happiness, warmth and fun. The ceremony was held at Saint Margaret's Catholic Church in Carshalton Beeches, South London, and was followed by a wonderfully relaxed celebration at the family's home. With a large number of guests and little children to take care of, not to mention a delicious buffet of home-cooked treats to serve up, the family was relieved to hand over the task of documenting this special event. I throughly enjoyed every moment of it and I'm so grateful to have been there to capture the story of the day as it unfolded. Here are just a few of my favourite images...

I love photographing family celebrations and use the same candid approach that I do with my family portrait photography to capture those precious moments and to tell the family's story. I'm passionate about delivering a beautiful selection of images that will be cherished for decades to come. Please get in touch if you'd like me to photograph your child's baptism or christening.
