Hi, I'm Amanda...

I had children in my 40’s so I know how precious family life is and how quickly children grow up. Childhood is precious, but we’re often too busy living to really record it as a family. I know there’s hardly any photos of my children with me because I was the one taking the photos!

So on finishing my photography degree, I naturally gravitated towards family photography, and haven’t looked back. It’s wonderful to meet so many different families and capture lovely photographs of them enjoying themselves, and making memories that will last for generations.

If I'm honest..

I take the photographs that I wish I had of my family when they were growing up

Beautiful relaxed portraits, families being themselves, capturing the togetherness that families have. I love hair catching in the breeze, hugs, laughter, wellies, special looks, climbing trees, piggy backs and most of all, I love mum being in the picture.

Excitingly, 7 years ago we moved to a small farm inside the M25 and live surrounded by 24 acres of fields, woodland and sheep in the tiny village of Chipstead, Surrey near Reigate, Banstead, Caterham and Kingswood. I now photograph families from all over Surrey, South London, Sussex and Kent.

Get to know me a little better:

  • I graduated with a distinction and prize for my photography degree, and I haven’t stopped photographing since
  • We have a flock of beautiful pedigree sheep, ancient woodland and lovely bluebell woods on our farm
  • Mum to 2 fab teenagers, wife to a lovely Irishman Eamonn
  • Music lover- speciality is 70’s and 80’s (if you need a team member for a pop quiz, I’m your girl)
  • I live in Converse in the summer and boots in the winter
  • Chocolate lover- Green & Blacks 37% cocoa
  • My ideal day would include a country walk with friends and family and lunch in lovely pub
  • I have a motorbike license
  • I really understand that some people don’t like the idea of having their photograph taken. So I’m all about making sure that everyone enjoys the experience so you get beautifully relaxed and natural photographs that you’ll treasure.
