My name is Sophie!
Capturing all of life's beautiful and real moments is my favourite thing to do. I know how important the big and small moments are and how it all comes together to tell a story, which is why I aim to capture everything and not just the highlights. I once read in an article that a photo is a return ticket to a moment that is otherwise gone, and that really stuck with me and motivates me to capture all of those in-between bits and details. With the power of photography we can catch a split second of emotion; smiles, laughter, tears, love. You will be able to re-live those feelings through a photo for years to come, which is pretty magical if you ask me!
Stories live forever, but only if you tell them.
I have a relaxed and fun approach and love to have a more personal rather than formal relationship with the people I work with. Getting to know you means I'll have a better understanding of exactly what you want. It's so important to me that we can get along and laugh together as this is adds something special to your photos; It helps you to relax so I can capture you being you.
I am based in the South-East of England close to London, but am able to travel all over the UK - and much further!
Bits n Bobs about me...
I have a Cat called Tilly (but we all call her Kitty) who I love more than anything in the World. She follows me around non-stop and loves a game of fetch!
There is always a bag of sweets on my desk. Usually peanut M&Ms or jelly beans. Or both.
I am named after my Mum's favourite pet hamster.
A cup of tea is not complete without a bourbon biscuit (or ten).
I'm a bit of a hoarder. I still have all of my teddies and keep all of my birthday cards. Collecting memories is important to me, which is why I love photography so much!
I love eating food, cooking food, and anything to do with food. It's surprising I am not a food photographer! I especially enjoy Mexican and Indian food. I love anything spicy!
When I have a camera in my hand I am fearless. I will do anything for a good photo. You want me to get in the lake? I can't swim but I will get in the lake!
My party trick is the Moonwalk!
