Now I'm 36 years old and I've specialised in portrait photography with a fine art organic aesthetic. I also write and photograph for magazines as an interiors journalist and I'm training to become a fiction editor.
I'm also part of the team that runs 'Arte di Vita Interiors', an interior design studio with a range of paint and fabrics.

While I was studying English literature at university, I discovered my talent for photography and ever since I've been developing my passion for words and my passion for images. I suppose what they have in common is 'storytelling', a word you hear a lot. They say 'an image says more than a 1000 words'. I'll always be fascinated by the image and the 1000 words!

things you might want to know

before deciding if I'm your photographer!

i'm a         person

I have three dogs and I love them to bits. This is 'Floortje'. In Tuscany we also have cats and I love them too! Animals are brilliant. 

my favourite city is

Ever since I was 15 I've loved Britain and everything British. Bath is my favourite city, and the Cotswolds my favourite area. We used to have a cottage there (still sad that we don't anymore).

Here we are photographed together in San Gimignano, Tuscany, by fellow photographer & friend Heledd Roberts. 

For 8 years I've spent most of my time in Tuscany, running a B&B with Rogier, my family & friends, which was an amazing adventure. We still have an apartment there, which we rent out during the Summer.

Style

I shoot with both a digital camera (Nikon) and a medium format film camera (Contax) on old-fashioned rolls of film. I send the film to a lab, who develop and scan the rolls. You will always receive high res digital files in an online gallery. I give my digital images the 'film look', but I'm forever in love with the real deal, and so I shoot both.

Style

'Fine Art' means that I approach photography with an artistic vision. This means that during a photo session I give directions, but in a subtle way because my aim is to create a beautiful portrait but also to capture who the person is; to let the character shine through.

Style

So my style is 'fine art with an organic aesthetic', which means that I love simple, authentic images; a natural look. I love photographing natural materials and textures and I don't use a lot of props when photographing people.
