My portrait shoots cover everything from individual portraits; couples, throuples and family photography; band photoshoots; and even pet photography! I favour a natural style for my portrait photography, one which incorporates your authentic reactions along with the environment around you. Posed photos can be lovely, but I think emotion is what makes a truly gorgeous portrait. I prefer to capture people laughing, reacting to one another or lost in a particular moment in time.
The thing I love most about portrait photography is the creativity it requires. I'm up for trying just about anything, even if you've had an idea for something really unusual! Past shoots have included a 60s style group photoshoot in a laundrette, a hike up a mountain for some adventurous couple's photography, and a two month long project which involved me taking portraits of people through their windows, while they were stuck at home during the covid-19 pandemic.
One of my main priorities when I take photos is to ensure that my clients feel comfortable. I understand that being in front of a camera can feel anxiety inducing, which is why I take the time to get to know you and help you relax. All my shoots begin with a 30 minute consultation. This gives us the time to get comfortable around each other, will help me understand more about who you are and what you want from your photographs, and also gives you a space to talk through any specific anxieties you might have about being on camera.
