A love for photography has been in my family for generations. From an early age I was endlessly inspired by my Granddad and his black and whites of my Grandmother as a young woman, Lough Corrib in the 1930s and an occasional self portrait that he set up using a string pully to activate the shutter.
My father bought me my first SLR camera for my 18th birthday and my interest in photography has been a constant in my life ever since.
I qualified as an Occupational Therapist in 2001 and worked with people with mental health problems, of all ages and stages, for twelve years after. I loved my career as an OT and I think I have earned a true understanding of the human spirit and highs and lows of ordinary life.
During that time my skill and passion for photography continued to develop through experience and attending various courses and workshops.
My two children, Max and Eliza Mae, arrived in 2009 and 2012. Eliza Mae seemed to bring with her a burst of inspiration and I set up this business shortly after her birth.
I am now a full time professional photographer and I love it. I miss Occupational Therapy but I like to think that a photograph of a precious moment also does wonders for a person's happiness, wellbeing and overall mental health!
Here's a little clip of me working with a gorgeous little man that, like all my little subjects, was an absolute joy to meet. The parent's took it without me noticing and kindly sent it on. He has the best laugh ever!
