A little bit about my journey into Photography...

My love of ‘photography’ started back in the 80’s when I bought my first Nikon SLR camera and studied photography at college in the days of film and dark room processing.

My passion back then was ‘travel photography’ so when I could, I’d travel to different parts of the world, documenting the cultures and my experiences on film and slides. Ever since I fell in love with photography, I’ve always had my camera with me so I can capture the very essence of where I am and what is happening around me. After 24 years, I knew that photography was more than just a hobby… I had a real passion and a keen eye for creating images that were part of a story, a journey and a special moment in time.

Reaching 40 was a significant turning point in my life, when I decided that I wanted to be my own boss and in control of my own destiny and with my passion of photography spanning nearly 3 decades, setting up my own photography business was a natural decision. Taking that leap of faith filled me with excitement and anxiety at the same time but with the amazing support from my family, it felt like the right to do it and I’ve been on the most incredible journey of discovery, learning and growth since launching in October 2012.

Like lots of mumpreneurs, I’ve faced many challenges juggling the running of my business activities with running a home and family commitments, and I still do, every day but it’s all worth it as I love being my own boss and being a good role model for my son.  I’ve worked with some amazing business owners and feel privileged to have had the opportunity to tell their ‘brand’ story in unique and personalised images.

Every year brings new adventures and opportunities to work with more wonderful clients to create some great looking Brand Photography to help promote their business and having founded MOTUS Women Entrepreneurs Network, Derbyshire’s unique and supportive network for women in business, in January 2017, I’m really looking forward to connecting and supporting more women entrepreneurs through our fabulous monthly events and private Facebook group. 

If you’d like to connect, please get in touch, I’d love to hear from you.
