Me!

(and what I can do for you)

Hi, I’m Stephanie ….. photographer, coffee lover and an abuser of clichés and quotes.

I’m often asked …… do I prefer being called Stephanie or Steph?  Long answer ……. I get called lots of things, especially by my Mother In Law who can never remember my name – this morning I was Vanessa!  My rule is – if you’re looking vaguely in my direction speaking, I’ll assume you’re talking to me!  Short answer …… either will do.

A sucker for procedures but definitely not of routine, my aim is to provide you with the experience and photographs you are looking for, and not what I think you should have.  This means your photo shoot will be totally designed around you and your friend and not part of a set piece.

After having bright red hair for years (of course it was natural – the bottle said so!), the dreaded 5-0 started to approach and my rebellious streak took hold  ……. so …….

  • I don’t dye my hair – I let the silvers shine.
  • I love singing loudly (and badly) to heavy rock.
  • To cap it all off – shock, horror – I don’t cover my upper arms!

Age is definitely just a number, and I intend to enjoy the rest of my numbers doing what I enjoy.

I combat my fear of falling my becoming Captain Marvel!  It’s fab, I go all over the place & when I’m not being her, I’m off on my flying bed!   Believe me, the world inside my head is a fabulous place to be!

Just so you’re pre-warned, (apparently it’s annoying) ….. I insist on having my coffee served boiling hot, but will wait until it’s cold to drink it!  Don’t judge!

I BELIEVE
I truly believe a photoshoot should be an experience, rather than just having your photo taken.

From the moment we first talk, until I deliver your artwork, you and your furry/feathered friends are treated as individuals, with love, fun and with individual needs and requests.

I am absolutely passionate about making sure you are not another item on a customer conveyor belt.

As much as I want to have fun with you and your furry friend, making sure you get amazing photos for you is incredibly important to me.

When we lost Buffy, my beautiful Choccy Lab, a few years ago, we realised we didn’t have any photos of her in a good pose, or of a decent resolution to print.  So I took a course on dog photography to make sure that not only did we not go through that again, but also to help other people, like you.

My ultimate aim is to get you images you will love and cherish, that will have pride of place in your house.  Images that make you smile.  That make you laugh at the memories of the shoot, and you will want to keep when memories aren’t enough.
