I'm lucky to meet so many different people in my work and I feel privileged to give them photographs that they will look back on to remember this time in their lives. More than anything I love capturing motherhood, the poignant moments and the fleeting everyday ones, because the raw, loving, layered and emotional connection between a mother and her child is unlike anything else and for me, she is the most important person to capture.
Some years ago I left a career in finance to work in the film industry where I discovered cinematic tones and the craft of storytelling. Working as a photographer now I bring everything I learnt about narrative, movement and film aesthetics to my photographs. When I had my own children I realised how much more there is to creating these photographs than I thought I knew, from understanding the beauty and vulnerability of pregnancy to fully appreciating the wonderful but all-consuming early days with a new baby, I started to see different ways I could photograph family lives and the women at their centre. I look for off-beat moments alongside styled shots, where the unique nuances of our relationships are found, and create warm and intimate images that will look beautiful on your walls for generations.
I am a strong advocate for maternal mental health and after getting my masters in documentary photography I also work on long form projects exploring healthcare inequality, birth trauma and postpartum rituals across cultures. I currently have a touring exhibition called That Which Goes Unsaid, Unravels, a documentary and research project exploring the maternal mental health crisis in the UK.
I live and work in London. Please get in touch below for bookings and commissions.
