I think I was born to be a photographer! I know that sounds funny but when I was 12 I used to dress up my 6 year old sister and make her model for me. I would snap image after image on my mum's 35mm, auto wind, film camera. I remember taking roll, upon roll of films to the local chemist and pay extra to have them processed in the hour (the anticipation would kill me!). It was what I lived for. So, I studied photography at college, learnt about composition and trained in all things dark room. Then life happened, I travelled, got a degree in psychology and carved out a career in mental health (goodbye camera for many years).
Fast-forward 20 years and I'm a mother of 3 amazing little men and wife to a fantastic husband. Just before my 3rd boy was born I was given the beautiful gift of a DLSR camera and I have not put it down since!! I genuinely can't believe that I went so long without capturing the beauty of life through a lens.
