A VERY WARM
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 family photoshoot. Quick! Let’s do it before anyone gets any older! Or perhaps you want photos of yourself – whether to stand out in business or simply just to record who you are in life right now. Either way, I can’t wait to meet you!
PHOTOS OF YOUR FAMILY
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
But you’ve been putting it off, 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 a light and airy home-styled environment or an outdoor setting.
You’ll enjoy working with me as your photographer if you’d like someone friendly and chatty and who understands just how life is as a busy working 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.
I’m a musicals-loving, tea-drinking, cat-owning, mum-bun wearing, 30-something mum to a 6-year-old wannabe vet/ palaeontologist / singer! We’ve got another daughter on the way (yes, I wanted to know!) so we’re currently Marie Kondo-ing our house to make room for a new arrival!
I’m a photographer with a fresh, light, relaxed style, working with other mums, their families and businesses to create stand-out contemporary images.
UNIQUE & SPECIAL
“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!”
PHOTOS OF YOU
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
However you’d like to be photographed, be it as a mum, an entrepreneur or just as yourself, I’d love to hear from you.
MEET KATE’S TEAM
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.

CHILDREN – FAMILIES – WOMEN
FROM THE BLOG
Here's a simple, creative activity idea to try with your child to spark conversation and memories. I trained as a Primary School Teacher and my first passion was for children's wellbeing. This led me into pastoral care roles in schools, whereby I was responsible for...
It’s International Women’s Day 2019. At some point, I seemed to have unknowingly graduated from ‘girl’ to ‘woman’. Now that’s a bit of a shock in itself when you realise that small children have started referring to you as ‘that woman’ and you’ve stopped being asked...
I should probably preface this post by saying that I can't cook. Or is it won't cook? I often joke that I don't know where the kitchen is and that I only actually have a kitchen at all because our house came with one! Well, a fridge is essential for the best chocolate...
CAPTURE THE MOMENT
“Kate has an amazing ability to not just capture the moment but to capture the very essence of your child! How you feel about them, caught and
immortalised in print!”
