Food-obsessed, adventure-loving mum-of-two from sunny Manchester
… Navigating the chaos of family life with my pair of hilarious chatterboxes, 14 year old Joe (kind-hearted, inherited my ‘human dustbin’ attitude to food) and 4 year old Huey (fearless, favours more of a ‘baked beans or get lost’ approach).
After 12 happy years in the industry, I’m proud to be one of the country’s leading family photographers, working with amazing families and kids’ brands all over the UK, as well as running workshops, courses and mentoring for other photographers, helping them to develop and grow their own businesses.
When I’m not taking pictures…
…I love any kind of adventure, overseas or closer to home – camping / campervanning, train journeys, festivals, snowboarding, forest walks, any kind of exploring.
In my 20s I used to jump out of aeroplanes, and nowadays I’m learning to fly one (hello midlife crisis!)
I live with my two boys, but share lots of happy times and campervan adventures with a mischievous Scouse-Welsh hybrid called Gary who has no idea I like to think of his campervan as my own, and due to his persistent reluctance to go ‘online’ will most likely never find out.
I LIVE FOR FOOD + CAN USUALLY BE FOUND…
…eating, cooking or planning what I’m going to eat/cook next, and sharing good food with good friends fills me with real joy. My reputation for being a gannet once saw me win an eating competition against a 6ft unit of a man known by his mates as ‘Shrek’. When I’m not filling my face I’m also partial to karate, tattoos, crochet, chunky jewellery, stationery and dorky list-making.
Stories are up there with food as one of the biggest loves of my life, and bliss to me is curling up in bed with a good book (paper not kindle) and a brew. Cuddling up and reading to my sons is something I could do for days on end without getting bored. I definitely don’t sniff pages and stroke them.
