"Photography has always been a great importance in my life, I love looking back on childhood photo albums and reliving the memories they hold, old photographs of generations past have always fascinated me, it is like time travel, a little glimpse of what life was like, time stands still.
And now I have two beautiful nieces who have been my muse throughout my photography development. I find myself wanting to document their precious milestones, from their first smiles to their first steps... I know that in time they will love to look back at their photographs, knowing that I had captured their special moments.
Eight years ago, my first niece was born, at the time I was in Sixth Form, not sure of what I wanted to do in the next chapter of my life. I remember choosing a variety of broad subjects, in the hopes that they would serve me well in the future. It was only when I had begun taking photos with my amateur camera that I stumbled upon an after-school photography class; this is when I decided to take my passion further and applied for a place at University.
Three years later and graduating with BA Hons in Photographic Practice, I now had the knowledge to pursue my career. Throughout my studies, I worked as a photographer at a family studio on a part time basis and later became a production manager at another photography company, which taught me the difference aspects of the business world, within the photography industry.
After gaining vital experience, I decided to start my own business in 2012, capturing special moments for others for years to come..."
