Inspiration can be found in so many places. I started my journey to professional photography in the UAE and over the next couple of years drew so much inspiration from my friends who were established photographers. Kirsty Larmour Photography, Emma Wood and Chloe Lodge Photography to name a few. Often loving a body or work that was different from mine and still unsure of the style I was leaning toward.
As time went on, I found that I absolutely loved working with new mamas, capturing them in the precious stages of pregnancy and then again when baby was born. I was drawn to newborn photography and fell in love with it when I mentored with Jillian Greenhill Photography. Her style of photography is so classic and clean, beautifully hand edited images that are perfectly captured for parents and I was so very fortunate to be mentored by her and learn from one of the best!! I am continually drawn to her use of colour and her ability to capture newborn portraiture effortlessly (trust me, it’s a lot harder than it looks!! 😉
As the years have gone by my style has emerged. Using a soft palette of pastels and many neutrals as my backdrop, I’m able to create the images I have always loved and have become my favourites. Soft, light, bright, airy, timeless portraits of baby. Many of my images are nature inspired, I often combine a blend of simple monochromatic set ups with a touch of florals, leaves and textures and draw inspiration from the colours and tones that are in a gorgeous bouquet.
