You’ve made it here, hurrah! I’m guessing, if you’re anything like me, you’ve managed against all odds to snatch 5 minutes in your busy day or you’ve finally settled down with a cuppa after your kids are tucked up in bed.

How do I know? Because that’s me too!

Have you just been scrolling through social media and wondering how everyone else does it? When you see their photos, they always look so together, so stylish and gorgeous.

If you’re reading this, then I’m guessing you’re considering a photoshoot. Quick! Let’s do it before the moment passes!

Maybe you’d love photos of your family before anyone gets any older. 

Or perhaps you want photos of yourself – whether to stand out in business or simply just to celebrate who you are in life right now.

Either way, I can’t wait to meet you!

“Kate has an amazing talent to photograph in the most natural way, making the photos so beautifully true to life and she manages to capture those moments that maybe you don’t see. Best of all, what you get from Kate is something unique and special and very personal!”

Lyndsey Lazell - 'Lyndsey Loves'

I’m a musicals-loving, tea-drinking, cat-owning, Netflix-watching, mum-bun wearing, 30-something business owner and proud mum to two little daughters.

I’m a photographer with a fresh, light, relaxed style, working with other mums, their families and businesses to create stand-out contemporary images.

Kate is an award-winning photographer based in Sittingbourne, Kent, with multiple features in magazines and blogs, most notably VOGUE Italia. She shoots in a light and airy style for weddings, families and businesses. With a prior background in education, Kate is great with children and is recommended by past clients for her ability to put people at ease to get the very best results.


Have a look at your phone photos right now – lots of family snaps or hardly any at all? In either case, you’d love some really great family photographs, right?

You’d really like to find time to organise a session and appreciate the value of existing in photographs with your children and for your children. You’d also like to do it for yourself. You’ve been putting it off though, haven’t you? I know why and have some answers for you on my FAQs page!

You’ll love my style if you’d like to see your gallery filled with natural candids, relationships between family members, genuine moments and expressions, interspersed with a few portraits of everyone together, looking relaxed and happy in the light and airy home-styled environment of my studio, an outdoor setting or in the comfort of your own home. You’ll enjoy working with me if you’d like someone friendly and chatty and who understands just how life is as a busy mum! Don’t worry about the kids not ‘performing’ either. I was a primary school teacher so I’ve got plenty of ideas to engage your little ones so they’ll really enjoy the experience.  

With a relaxed yet stylish approach, my signature images aim to portray everything that you love about your family.


But what about you as an individual?

You feel that there is more than motherhood (as wonderful as it is) to who you are. That’s why I want to work with you, to help you recognise that you have a right to be yourself and celebrate being you. Perhaps you could do with a day off and would love some pampering with professional hair and make up and a set of gorgeous photos of yourself taking the time to look your best? You’ll love my ‘Sirens’ sessions. 

However you’d like to be photographed, be it whimsical and romantic or strong and confident, I’d love to hear from you!


Are you building a new business and want to stand out from the competition with imagery of you and your venture that helps grow and speed up your success?

As a business owner myself, I know you’ll need strong visual imagery to promote your brand’s message, showcase your products and services and generate greater leads and sales.

Whatever you need, we’ll tailor a session to ensure you go on your way armed with a collection of stunning photos which make everyone sit up and take notice!




Assistant & Associate Photographer

Amanda is Kate’s ‘second-shooter’ for weddings and she also enjoys working with women in the studio as she feels that everyone deserves to have a lovely photo of themselves at any time of life and for no other reason than because they want to feel pampered and look their best.

When she’s not shooting, she’s doing lots of behind-the-scenes jobs which keep the studio ready and waiting for you. Essentially, she’s the one you go to when you need something fixing!

In her other life, she’s a popular Radio Presenter on 92.2FM.



Make Up Artist & Hair Stylist

Andrea is your magic weapon!

She loves working with women to create a look they’ll love. She helps you to feel camera-ready and gives you that boost of confidence to strut your stuff.

As an ex MAC professional with plenty of experience in both the wedding, beauty and fashion industries, she knows her stuff and will make you feel relaxed and pampered at your ‘Sirens’ session.

Andrea needs an official headshot and Kate needs to organise that soon! Sorry Andrea!

We also work with our other equally lovely MUA, Gemma, at Beautiful You.

2019 Summer Mini Sessions

Last Of The Summer (Wine?!) In my village, there is a beautiful little spot, where the grass is long and the orchard trees provide a shady little haven from the sun. It's here where I chose to hold some summer mini sessions to celebrate the end of the summer, or...

immortalised in print!”
