We love working from our fantastic studio in Cleckheaton.

I have got a few loves in my life; photography, my family, my trombone, badminton, coffee and chocolate.

My love of photography began after my children were born, I wanted to record their first steps, their smiles, their laughter, their seriousness, their silliness, their personality. These photos are in albums, on the wall and have been given as many presents over the years, when they’re towering over you it’s a great reminder how small they once were.

For many years I worked as a teacher which I enjoyed but photography drew me away from that as I love capturing the personality of children and adults.

My family consists of my husband, also an avid photographer but chooses to work on his beloved computers all day, my eldest son who enjoys working in a school and my youngest son who is relishing life as a student at university. Even though my husband is Scottish we love living in the Yorkshire area, it’s so rich in beautiful countryside but has so much history and lots of shopping in the towns.

I have played trombone since the age of 8 and still love the challenge of new pieces, the familiarity of the old favourites and the buzz from performing to an audience. I’ve played in Phoenix Concert Band (see us on You Tube) for many years and have recently joined Yorkshire Wind Orchestra, (see us on You Tube)

I play badminton on a regular basis, we win some, we lose some but most importantly of all, as with life, we have fun.

Coffee – what can I say – milky and sweet for me.

Chocolate – again what can I say – white, milk, dark – lovely.

Concerts – amazing!

I love what I do and have met so many great people, children and babies that I want to continue capturing those special moments of you together as a family.

Now you know a bit more about me I’d love for you to get in touch with me to see how I can help you capture those memories.
