Hello and welcome to my website! I’m Annie, mum of 2 beautiful child, Joshua aged 8 and Emma aged 5, and wife to a very supportive husband! My dog Dave, a cuddly British Bulldog who is now 11 years old. He does make an appearance throughout the website so keep an eye out.
I have always loved photography but it was only when my son was born did I decided to learn how to take a proper photo of him. I then had my daughter two years later and it was at this point, I made the jump from my photography being a hobby to a business.
When I’m not working I enjoy climbing and riding my motorbike as well as going to the gym but prefer accidental exercise! In 2018, I participated in the London to Briton cycle ride and I’m looking to the London to Cambridge in 2019!
About My Photography
I have been photographing clients for the last 3 years, and in October 2018 I opened my new studio in Redbourn, Hertfordshire. It have been an amazing step in my photography journey to move my business forward and expand.
As many of my clients will vouch for me, I am naturally very calm and patient, which really helps to ease the nerves. However, as a parent and a former teacher, I feel that my friendly and personable approach helps to put children, and adults alike, at ease during their photoshoot. I am passionate about creating of natural stunning portraits of a high quality for all my clients, after all that is one of the key reasons you would book me as your photographer!
As a member of some of the most highly respected photography associations in the UK, such as The Guild of Photographers, Master Photographers Association and Banpas to name a few, I continually strive to be the best I can within my field. I have been trained by some of the leading experts in photography, lighting and composition. Over the years I have learnt to blend my creative vision, my passion for photography and the technical know-how to truly capture the “real you” and deliver the portraits and imagery you desire.
Recently, this photo (below) was one of 10 selected out of more than 13,500 global entries in the fiercely contested The Guild of Photographers Image of the Year Awards Competition! The awards night is Saturday 1st January 2020. For read more about this very exciting new please see my blog post.
My fully equipped studio is in the thriving and proactive rural community of Redbourn. I am located on the High Street, next to the very popular Hub Coffee Bar & Cyclist Refuge. Redbourn is 5.1 miles from St Albans town centre.
My studio is a beautiful listed building and dates back to the seventh centre. It is a cosy environment, allow my clients to feel relaxed whilst having their photos taken.
There is parking directly outside my studio, but be aware, like any high street it works on a first come first serve bases and with a 2 hour time restriction. However, there is a public car park near the cricket pavilion as well as parking on Library Lane. Both are about 3-4 minutes walk from the Studio.
