NORTHERN IRELAND WEDDING & PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER
I’ve been working as a professional photographer for over 10 years now. Before that I had a whole other career as a graphic designer and art editor. When my children came along everything changed. Picking up the camera purely to document as a mother, I realised the emotional impact photographs could have when loved ones were in the frame.
What clients have to say is what matters most.
“You have such a feel for the moments that matter. I remember on the day saying to myself, “Remember how you feel right now”, trying to somehow take mental snapshots of everything. Now I don’t have to worry – as I have this gift from you; a sweet, sensitive, intuitive feel for the moments and people that mean the most to us in the world.”
My favourite photos are the ones where the love shines out of them. Whether that be the love between couples, between a parent and child, or even that spiritual bond between people and place. I’m an eternal dreamer and a romantic. Historical dramas, gothic romance novels, crumbling castles, rugged landscapes and painterly, soft tones are all daily inspirations.
We live a quiet life between the southern shores of the Lough Neagh and the River Bann in Northern Ireland. My favourite thing is to walk the overgrown, soggy lanes in wellies with my two kids and two dogs, Molly the wheatie and my youngest baby – Scarlett the pug :)
I’ve been so lucky to have shot hundreds of weddings, portraits, families and editorials over the years. There’s always the challenge to find the unique story in everything. I’m more than happy to help my clients with planning, tips and advice to make the most of their weddings or portrait shoot for the best photography experience. I’d love to hear from you.
“I use my eyes, my camera and
sensitivity to capture people and
events, but truly these photographs
come from the heart.”
