About Me

Hi! I'm Lindsey, I live in Ilkeston, Derbyshire with my husband, son & our two cats Mollie & Cooper.


I’ve always had an eye for visual voodoo. That’s the reason I studied Art & Design with a side of Photography in college. Afterwards, I worked as a graphic designer, but being behind a camera capturing those small, storybook moments that stand the test of time, that’s what makes my heart go thump thump.


Maybe you’ve been trying for years to get that family portrait where everyone is actually looking at the camera. Or maybe you’re feeling self-conscious about having maternity photos because your eye twitches every time the baby kicks you in the ribs. But don’t sweat it, I’ve got your back. I’ve photographed the squirmiest toddlers, the kids who would prefer making any face at the camera but a happy one, the most beautiful mums-to-be on their toughest days and the sweetest newborns fighting sleep! The perfect moment might only last for half a second, but you can be sure I’ll capture it.


Talking about newborns, they’re my absolute favorite and photographing them has become my specialty. My newborn photography gives you much more than pretty pictures. I love capturing those first precious weeks and making sure the babies (and parents!) are completely comfortable during the shoot. The newborn stage is so fleeting and your baby will never be this tiny again! Newborn portraits will allow your family to continue to cherish and revisit those incredibly beautiful moments for years to come.


When I'm not taking photos, I can usually be found immersed in an art or craft project (I often have more than one on the go!), upcycling vintage furniture, watching comedy or playing the ukelele (badly, but with much enthusiasm) next to a glass of red wine.


Photographing squishy little newborns, cheeky children & epic families is so much fun!

I basically have the best job in the world!

 

Don’t be shy, let’s be friends! Better yet, let my work make your heart go thump thump.


Drop me a line to see if I am available around your due date, or to schedule your portrait session with me.
