After graduating with a degree in languages in 2004, I worked for 12 years in sales and marketing and in 2009 I gained my Professional Diploma in Marketing from the Chartered Institute of Marketing.
I have been a hobbyist photographer my whole life, enjoying capturing family and friends and putting together little collages of our memories. My passion started to grow into something more when I was travelling in my personal life and my first job out of university – I wanted to be able to accurately photograph the beautiful places I was lucky enough to visit – in China, India, Australia, South America, South Africa and much of Europe.
Once I had children, the desire to capture the moment only grew stronger as I wanted to record every moment I had with them, as I still do, and I realised that other families felt the same. Through multiple courses at Bath College and the Royal Photographic Society, amongst others, I gained a lot of confidence in my skills and got to the stage in 2017, at the end of maternity leave with my second child, where I decided to “go pro”.
I realised that I could also incorporate my love of marketing with my photography skills, through offering Personal Brand Photography to small businesses, entrepreneurs and sole traders in the local area.
My passion is to tell a story through images – showing the world how wonderful your brand is – your ethos, your reason for being, your WHY. I love to see the positive effect that professional imagery can have on a business and how it really elevates the look of a brand. I love how it makes a small brand, sole trader or entrepreneur FEEL when others can see their brand as they do, via smart, professional, on-brand imagery.
I love every minute of it and I am so grateful for the support from all my clients and thankful to receive so many wonderful reviews.
If you would like to know anything further about how I work, or you would like to make a booking, feel free to get in touch for an informal chat, I would love to hear from you. My personal branding sessions are limited to a small number per month so do plan ahead and start conversations early.
