Would you believe that the majority of my client book me BECAUSE they don’t like having their photo taken?! With my relaxed approach, I make sure you’re comfortable in front of the camera, allowing your natural character to shine through…and not taking up all of your day either!

Use the engagement session to rid those photo nerves, and realise it’s all a great laugh!
