I love people. I know that’s a common expression but I really do. The sheer variety of human beings in the world is truly staggering and I think it’s a sort of subconscious mission of mine to meet them all. Or at the very least, stuff as many of them into my life as possible.
I bring a warmth and cheer to my work that makes me excellent (in particular) with families. I adore kids and getting the most delirious giggles out of them on a shoot is one of the best perks of my job. The friendly rapport I naturally secure with my clients also means I’m pretty good at coaxing them into a relaxed, happy place when they’re having their photo taken. Lots of us hate having our picture taken (hey, we’re only human) and having a photographer who sets you at ease is a really magical thing. This particular talent comes in handy with my commercial work, too.
I’m an Aussie who fell in love with a Scotsman, moved herself to sunny Linlithgow (it’s just outside Edinburgh…in case you were wondering) and had three beautiful babies. I’ve been taking photos for a very long time. I love my job and honestly can’t think of anything I could do that would bring me as much joy. I like to help people feel seen, to feel heard. I want my work to really show my clients as I see them: confident, glorious and loving life.
Lots of my portraits are used – eventually – on the orders of service for funerals. I know! Sounds like tragic feedback, doesn’t it? I really wasn’t too sure how to feel about it the first time I saw one, but when I really considered it, it’s the grandest of compliments. The perfect photo to use on the last event that celebrates you should be honest, moving and happy. And lots of people choose mine. It’s actually sort of beautiful when you think about it.
YOU’LL LOVE ME IF …
YOU’RE AFTER SOMETHING LOW KEY BUT LOVELY
If you want some portraits taken but are having the heebie-jeebies about having your photo taken, then I’m the perfect photographer for you. I keep things calm, fun and very, very chilled.
YOU MIGHT WANT TO LOOK ELSEWHERE IF …
YOU’RE JUST AFTER SOMETHING QUICK ‘N’ CHEAP
Just want a set of digital prints? A set of snap-and-go photos needed quick smart is all well and good but I’m not your girl for that kind of photo shoot. I like to take my time, connect with my client and deliver something gorgeous and bespoke. Plus, I deliver prints with all of my packages (as well as digital).
