A picture really can speak a thousand words. What will yours say about you?
My name is Nicola and ever since I can recall, I’ve always loved photography. Why? Because I love to be able to create imagery that is special, bespoke and unique. A moment made timeless, your emotions recorded for years to come, but most of all, your story.
It makes me sad when I look back at our family albums and one person is missing from the majority of photographs – our dad. He was always busy taking the images, creating our memories, whilst working tirelessly behind the lens.
The gift of photography is timeless. I realise this more now than ever, since we were blessed with the arrival of our son. We have been fortunate enough to watch him grow and transform into a little boy through priceless collections of beautiful, natural images. And it means our family unit has been captured as it is – the three of us side by side.
So how did my photography journey begin? My husband helped to re-ignite my love for it during our travels several years ago. Our cameras were never far from our sides.
And after training with some of the most respected photographers in the industry, and lots of prompting from those closest to me, I finally took the plunge and launched my business. It helps that I trained as a journalist and worked for several years at the BBC, both in production and in front of camera.
It means that I understand the importance of attention to detail and how to help make whoever is on the other side of the camera feel relaxed, even when they’re worried or uncomfortable about having their picture taken. If this is you, then please don’t worry – my mum and my husband feel exactly the same, so I know where you’re coming from!
So do get in contact if you have an enquiry or questions, or even just for a chat. It would be great to meet you, for us to work together to create beautiful, stylish pieces of art, that you will treasure for years to come. But above all else, it would be a privilege to capture moments in your life, and to make them timeless.
