Hi, I’m Angela.

A friendly, down-to-earth, creative, hard-working tea snob of a photographer. (If I come to your home and you offer me Lady Grey tea you go straight to the top of my favourite people list).  

I feel passionate that everybody should have a family photo shoot when their kids are little….

But I understand why people don’t hire photographers.

I get thinking the house isn’t finished or I need to lose some weight. I get letting concerns about hating being in front of the camera get in the way, or that the cost of a shoot can seem large.  I get that you don’t have time to drink a full cup of coffee never mind arrange a family photo shoot.

I can only tell you that now I’m on the other side – my little girl is now 18 years old – I would give my right arm for some photographs of us doing the things we used to do when she was little. I  never hired a photographer because I was one but when I  look through the thousands of pictures I have of her I now see something missing – me.  

It’s a pleasure and privilege to provide this for other parents now.

  People who hire me don’t want traditional family portraits.  They want photographs that look like them, feel like them and tell their own unique story.  They want a shoot that feels completely natural, for their kids to run free, for their other half to actually enjoy. Then they want images that make them squeal ‘That’s so US’.    

I will work with you each step of the way to help you get the most out of your photo shoot. We will get to know each other a little before your session by phone or Skype and I’ll be on hand to give you advice on locations or clothes right through to what you can do with your final images.

Angela created some beautiful images of our little family and it was actually fun! She was friendly and put us at ease straight away. Even our toddler seemed happy having his photo taken! It was a much nicer experience than the newborn shoot we had with our son which was very staged. The only problem now is that we can’t decide which photos to get framed! Thanks again Angela x

Can’t thank Angela enough for our gorgeous photos of my newborn. Wouldn’t go anywhere else for a newborn photo shoot the pictures and are just timeless and stunning. No pressure during the shoot, no set backgrounds or strict poses, was so relaxed and the pictures captured my daughter perfectly and naturally. Worth every penny!

Angela has taken the most beautiful photos of our daughter on two separate occasions. The photo shoots themselves were really relaxed with no pressure to pose and Angela put us at ease straight away. For the most recent shoot, our 18 month old could just run around happily and it means that we’ve got photos that perfectly capture her personality. Thank you Angela!
