There is a moment during every shoot when I stop being a photographer, and you stop being a stranger. A fleeting second when my camera delivers more than an image, and captures a sense of you as a person. Gone in an instant yet preserved forever, it’s the magic of those moments that makes me love my job.
Like all photographers, I obsess about lighting and composition, but my real passion is people. My clients come from all walks and stages of life. They come alone. They come as couples. They come as families. Some arrive with a clear idea of exactly what they want, others with a blank canvass. No client or project is ever the same, but all of them are generous enough to share a little of their journey with me. I consider it a privilege and a responsibility to make my living as a portrait photographer. I like to believe that when my work leaves the studio it starts a new life, becoming part of the history and fabric of a family. I’m continually amazed by the thought that years from now, some of my photographs will still be looked at and talked about by my clients and the people they love.
If you’re interested in sharing a little of your journey with me, and would like to discuss a project or a maternity photography session for you or your family, I would love to talk.
