Hi, I'm Sophie... a mum and a photographer with a love of telling other peoples stories. My number one priority is to record you exactly as you are, in a timeless way for the future, those day to day moments and essence of who you are as a family. I work with you to make your photography session hugely enjoyable and totally relaxed. Most importantly you will end up with a set of images that really mean something.

I specialise in capturing family photographs which tell the story of a family in a natural candid way, precious memories captured in a very real way. My images are a vivid slice of family life, they're taken in real scenarios in real locations and certainly don’t consist of self-conscious posing. The shoots take place in your favourite places doing everyday things; you set the scene (walks in the park, lunch, brunch, cooking, games, sports - the opportunities are endless) and I photograph the family dynamic in a laid back natural way. Before all family shoots, I put the leg work in to make sure we have the most beautiful, meaningful locations and do the most engaging, fun things with the kids.

As a photographer, I’ve always chased the most beautiful version of reality and strived to tell real stories in the most vivid way. As well as photographing around 25 families a year I also photograph approx 15 weddings and 20 events, which can be anything from a christening to a 40th birthday party.

Outside my life as a photographer, I’m a mum, a wife, a daughter, a sister and a bessie. I’m laid back, fun loving and not easily fazed! I take this open-minded lust for life along with me to every shoot.
