Hello! My name is Charlotte! I have been behind the camera specialising in portrait photography for 8 years. I started my photography adventure working on cruise ships with the rich and famous, travelling the world and the seven seas! I then went back to my home country England and became a school portrait photographer which I did for 6 years. I have also had the pleasure of capturing many weddings and newborn babies. Photography isn't just my job it's my passion. I feel super privileged to capture these special memories for my clients and give them photographs that will last a lifetime and that will hopefully be passed on through generations, which is pretty amazing when you think about it like that! I can tailor my skills to suit each individual shoot depending on your tastes and preferences. I provide shoots for weddings, families, newborns, businesses, couples, or individuals, be it your big day or your little ones first days.
These are some of the companies who I have had the pleasure of working with: Jessops, Ocean Images, Holland America, Pixi Foto, Fraser portraits, Scene to believe, GM Photographics & Happypics.
They say you'll never work a day in your life if you love your job, well thats so true! Photography isn't just my job it's my passion. I feel super privileged to capture these special memories for my clients and give them amazing images that will last a lifetime and that will hopefully be passed on through generations, which is pretty amazing when you think about it like that! I love meeting new people everyday and building new relationships.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done many family shoots, the key to capturing amazing family portraits is to make sure that each family is as prepared as possible before the shoot so that everyone feels relaxed on the day. If the Parents are relaxed, the kids are relaxed and I'm relaxed! It's much easier to capture natural expressions when the whole family are having a good time! I will give the families advice beforehand about what to wear in their photo shoot so that when they get their images back everyone looks comfortable and well presented which adds that extra special wow factor to the finished product. I also give them advice on what to bring/ what not to bring- for example if the children have any special toys/ bikes/ surf boards that we can include in the shoot. To leave mobiles/ wallets in the car or at home so that nobody has distractions or a bulge in their pocket! I also find out names and ages of the children before hand to prepare myself with things that I can bring along to encourage smiles and make them feel at ease on the day calling them by name.
