This is my story……Originally a Fermanagh girl, since marring Ryan in 2009 I am now based in a small village called Knockloughrim, outside Magherafelt. I am the proud Mummy to Lily & Chloe, and in January we welcomed baby Jake into the world!! We have so much love for him already..he has just completed our little tribe!! Last but not least we can’t forget about the furbaby Olly, our 2-year-old LaSapso who also doubles up as my office buddy!! My family are my world and I love being a Mummy, it’s my No1 achievement in life!!! They make me smile, even on the days they are driving me mad!!
My No2 achievement is doing a job that I love… Every day! It may sound cheesy but I do!! I’m a qualified Graphic Designer but always had a love for Photography, so what was once a hobby turned into my business. I trained with a Portrait and Wedding photographer for 7 years and I grew the love for making people smile and capturing this for them to remember forever. After loosing my brother in 2016 I realised the importance of my job, it isn’t until you loose someone that you really appreciate the value of a photograph, memories are all you have left and they are priceless. I truly believe I was put om this earth to do this job and I have met some amazing and inspirational people along the way, that I now call my friends!
With the Weddings I travel all over the country and love getting to somewhere new!! I love capturing every last little bit of effort you have both put into your day, details are my favourite. The cute little rustic venues with loads of character are right up my street!! So if you like, old, brick, character buildings or the beach well I’m the girl for you!! Meeting for a coffee and a chat can always be arranged, any excuse to talk weddings!!
I am so grateful to watch these couples grow into little families, it is so sweet to be asked into your home to capture the first portraits as a new family, it makes my heart melt. They are so important as they don’t stay little forever and its great to document these early days and then through to their teenage years.
