C’est moi, Stephanie. I grew up in the South of France and came to England nearly 20 years ago for love, music and the great British weather. I’m serious! I love how we never take the sunshine for granted and appreciate every beautiful blue sky.
Photography has always been a passion of mine; so after the birth of my first baby, I decided to take the plunge and grow my hobby into a business. Twelve years on and I’ve been lucky enough to spend my workdays with some wonderful characters: from mums-to-be and squishy babies, curious toddlers and their playful dads to adoring grandparents, quirky kids and bashful teens – I strive to capture those wonderful rare snapshots where personality and that inimitable bond with family members come to life. These unique moments only happen when people feel relaxed and comfortable and then forget that there’s a lens pointed their way!
So, a little bit about me. I’m a mum of two teens, Emily and Louis, who have become my live-in models; providing me with inspiration to take to my next shoot. I’m always looking for new and inventive ways to use light and composition in my photos to find the perfect style for each unique family – from classic reportage to contemporary cool.
I get so excited about photography and light that in 2011 I decided to start teaching and sharing the skills I have acquired over the years. I love seeing those lightbulb moments in my students’ eyes when they understand that getting a good photograph isn’t so much about the equipment you have but really about understanding how light works and having a vision for the shot. I take great pleasure in teaching beginners and more experienced photographers alike, from those who just want to take lovely shots of their family to those who need help and mentoring in all aspects of their photography business.
