– ABOUT ME –
How did I become a newborn photographer? This is the part where I am supposed to write about when I first picked up a camera, but then you wouldn’t really be finding out about me now would you! Of course, I love photography, and of course, I love babies and children, doing this ‘job’ that should be a given, but me, the real Emma, what can I tell you about me.
I’m 40 something, although I still convince myself I’m 30 something. I have one beautiful girl who I just adore. She’s 6, nearly 7, a complete bossy pants and she keeps me on my toes. I love music (mostly cheese), good shoes, (you know the ones), Jo Malone candles, anything from The White Company, sunshine, Cadbury chocolate, Hydrangeas, food (especially cooked by someone else), Greys Anatomy, and David Beckham! And recently I have found my love of writing again, something I used to do a lot of when I was younger. I’ve even started sharing some of my poems on my blog!
I moved up to Oxfordshire when I met my husband, just over 12 years ago. And worked as an account director for a local marketing agency for many years before I decided to give it all up and change my career. Since then I haven’t looked back!
This past year has been a struggle for everyone, photographers included. I’ve been closed for months than I’ve been open in the last 12, but it’s really reminded me why I do what I do. I have felt so upset for all the new parents that have missed those newborn memories, and families that have missed out on capturing special milestones and pictures of their growing bump.
If you’re looking for someone to talk to about photographing your precious family. I’m always open for a chat or cuppa and would be happy to talk through your requirements.
Only photograph what you
And then comes the why. I’m a soppy one, cry at everything. I want my daughter to grow up looking at images of her, us, her nannies & granddads and everyone in between, and to remind her of home. Pictures belong on walls, not on phones, or laptops, or ipads. Real ones you can touch and pick up, and smile at.
