loving photographer! If I'm not shooting or editing, I'm usually spending time with my kids, playing sports, training at the gym, or enjoying a box set with my husband Andy. Family and friends are everything to me, and my two kids Sophie and Callum are the reason I bought my first DSLR. I was (and still am), desperate to hold onto every moment of them growing and changing!

Their presence in my life is why I became passionate about family photography. I want to help others capture expressive moments of their lives together.

A snapshot into my life

1 / 2

Sophie and Callum are everything to me. Sophie is elven and turning into a teenager before my eyes! She has my addiction to Netflix and a love for horse riding and soccer. Callum is ten and loves playing computer games, and soccer!

My husband and I have many mutual friends from school, but we didn't officially meet until I was in third year at university. We both studied Business Management, and he graduated two years before me. He is my biggest supporter in everything I do, and he is the best dad to Sophie and Callum.

MY family is MY WORLD

2 / 2

I love visiting family in Scotland and travelling to new places. Since we moved to Katy, Texas, we have been so lucky to be able to travel! Sophie's favourite place so far has been Colorado where Andy and the kids learned to snowboard, and I learned how to get from the top of the hill to the bottom without falling too many times. Ha ha! It was challenging, but we all loved it. Such an amazing experience! 
The only issue with traveling is having to leave this guy behind - Whisky is my shadow and I do feel a little lost without him at my heels!

My Favorite Things

The best of the best! I was late to the game booking Christmas card photos this year and Claire was able to accommodate me within the week. She was so genuine and sweet and captured my family so authentically. I have an almost 1 year old son and she was so great with him. She got lots of pics very quickly so we finished before he got restless. I got my gallery in half the time she quoted me which was the best surprise. I couldn’t pick a favorite because all of the photos were so amazing!

Now you have met me and my family let me serve yours. I am passionate about capturing families at whatever stage they are at, and as a Mom I understand the desire to hold on to the memories of them growing. I would be delighted to document your family in a timeless and beautiful way.
