Hello and welcome to my website! Originally from the UK, I moved to Rye, New York in the summer of 2005 and it very quickly became my home. As a mother of a college junior son and a college graduate daughter I've experienced first hand how quickly our children grow up. Life can be complicated and moves incredibly fast, so I encourage you to do whatever you can to capture special family connections before they fly the nest. Children grow up in the blink of an eye and I'm passionate about helping families slow things down, capturing special memories and connections that will be treasured forever.


My family, portrait and lifestyle sessions are informal, warm, fun and relaxed. You'll be in a setting that allows everyone to be themselves and I'll capture images that reflect your family in an authentic, joyful way. I encourage everyone to just be themselves and relax! We'll get the 'traditional' family poses out of the way at the beginning of the session and then it's all about me capturing personalities and connections - these images are always the best. I've lost count of how many times parents apologize for their kids not co-operating during a session and it always makes me smile when they see that actually the images tell a very different story!

As well as photography, I love music, live concerts, spending time with family and friends, relaxing with a glass of Prosecco, candles, warm weather, fluffy socks, sunrises, sunsets, spinning and my 2 cats!

As well as natural light, outdoor and studio portrait/family photography, I love to capture scenery, candid moments and images of everyday life and can work with you on commissions if there’s a particular scene you love. Please click here for some examples of my wall art.

Please contact me with any questions or pop into the studio and say hello!
