Following a dream

I started my photography career when I was 16 years old (and, no, I’m not telling you how long ago that was! Lol!). But rather than pursue a career in photography my mother told me to get a “proper job” when I left school. So I became a nurse, and then a midwife, in Liverpool for 21 years!

But I just couldn’t ignore my dream of being a photographer and so I eventually decided that I was finally going to do it!

I firmly believe that we should never stop learning and even now, as an experienced professional photographer, I am learning all the time!

In order to create the best possible photography for you, I now have a mentor – one of the most talented photographers and trainers in the country. His name is Damian McGillicuddy he is the lead photographer for Olympus, having taken over from David Bailey

As well as being mentored by Damian, I am also very privileged to now be working alongside him, and Olympus UK, as one of his ‘Baby Whisperer’s’ in the Baby Whisperer Academy. We teach other photographers the art of newborn photography.

I have also gained my Fellowship in portrait photography with The Societies of Photographers, I’m very privileged to be in the top 1% of photographers that have this qualification!  and this year, I am stunned and honoured to have attained my Master of Photography Award! a recognition award for The societies for giving back tot the industry, by teaching and judging!
