So this is me…
I started taking pictures right from when I was little. Back then we didn’t have phone cameras, or even digital cameras (I know, I’m old!), it was all a little more simple. I just liked being able to be arty farty, taking nice pictures, with a slight hint of science and mystery in how it all worked!
To be honest, not a lot’s changed! I love my job, it’s a little bit arty, it’s a lot of fun and it’s hugely satisfying. I get to be there at some cracking moments in people’s lives and it’s a real honour.
I’ve been shooting ever since I left uni in 2003 and have had my business for over 10 years. I was the Art Director at the UK’s biggest portrait company but after a while wanted to go it alone. Along the way, I’ve tried all sorts of photography, but my real passion is people; you lovely lot!
Besides being behind a camera, I like a good cuppa first thing in the morning, I enjoy a nice bar of chocolate a bit too often, and I adore a glass of Prosecco or two… Even more, if I’m drinking it while having a good natter with my friends. But most of all, I love my family, except during Peaky Blinders, then they can fend for themselves!
Natalie, Mum to Evie & Tilly
‘OMG! We LOVE them! They are amazing. I’m crying already and I’ve only seen 2. I may need a rest before I can look at the others. The ones with the toys are going to be instant tear-jerkers.’
Cat, Mum to Wilf & Nancy
‘Thank you, we love the pictures! You made the children feel so relaxed and kept them entertained at the same time and the result is some brilliant pictures that really capture their personalities brilliantly. Thank you!’
Nikki & Philip
‘Aw, Abi you are truly amazing! We absolutely love all the pictures, you captured some lovely moments! We can’t thank you enough, they’re stunning. We couldn't have wished for anyone better to share our special day with and I’m so thankful you were available. Couldn't be happier. You’re so talented. Thank you!’
Hannah & Simon
‘We cannot recommend Abi enough. She did a fantastic job for us on our wedding day. The photographs were superb and many of our guests commented on how great she was. Abi chatted to us online on a couple of occasions before the wedding so she knew who our guests were and exactly what we wanted. On the day, she went above and beyond, ensuring we had lovely photos of the two of us but also of all our guests. She managed all of this with friendliness and humour and was a really reassuring presence throughout a nerve-wracking day. A great professional and lovely person to deal with; it’s absolutely 5 stars from us!’
Jeni, Massage Works
‘Thank you so much! I really appreciated how you got me organised with planning the photo shoot, and I just love the results! They are exactly what I wanted, but with even more range and options. I often get comments on the quality of my social media photos now. I am busier than I have ever been!”
