A Fork In The Road... Taking A New Direction

The end of 2014 sees me following a dream I have held for over 10 years.

Ever since the idea of living on the coast came to me, I have wanted to follow this path. And now it’s time to set the wheels in motion.

On 24 December, I’ll be closing the Letchworth studio to move on. I’ve had a fantastic time here in Letchworth, where my business has grown from being in The Wynd to much larger premises in Station Road, photographing so many families, seeing many of you grow along the way.
This move is a fantastic opportunity for me to take motorbike portrait photography, a real passion of mine, to a new level.

For these motorbike portraits, all shoots are on location and don’t need studio premises. This will allow me to spend more time with each of my clients, providing a more bespoke and unique service to all.

I started in photography because I loved capturing memories, personalities, which is even more possible when out on location. And I’m so excited that this change of lifestyle will give me more time for myself and in turn more energy and passion for my clients and portraits.

I always believed I wanted the large studio with many staff members, an ever-expanding empire. But especially in this last year, I have realised that actually I want a different lifestyle, one where I connect with all my clients, and allows me a more relaxed pace.

This move will mark the start of a huge lifestyle change for me, where I can regain some of that life/work balance that the studio has not been able to provide me. (If you know me well, you’ll have seen this!)
I’m very excited about this change and look forward to photographing on the beach!

What does this mean for you?

If you’ve been putting off having a studio portrait, make sure you book now! There is very limited space before the studio closes on 24 December, so get in quick. I won’t be taking any bookings for January 2015.

Don’t worry if you miss me! I’ll be back at least four times a year offering you the chance to enjoy a family location portrait. (Dates to be announced on the Facebook page).

If you’d like me to contact you directly with dates when I’ll be back in the area, please let me know so I can make a note.

Thanks for your support in Letchworth and here’s to big new dreams!
