From the moment I began photographing newborns over five years ago, I was completely in love with how nature’s stunning creations complimented them so perfectly. I guess I have always felt an affinity between the naturally colourful beauty of flowers and the perfection of new life. Colour and texture is everywhere around us in nature and I have always been drawn to recreating this in some small way within my newborn work.
“Colours are the smiles of nature”…
As an artist, I create what I love and feel visually connected to and to date I have been incredibly blessed to work with many clients who appreciate and are drawn to my style of colourful floral work. I have always felt that an artist’s love for what they do shines through their work. Staying connected who you are and what you are passionate about is key to developing a recognisable and distinctive style.
For the first two years I only worked with real flowers, however; practicality, locality and an assistant with pollen allergies has pushed me to develop an appreciation of the handmade silk variety.
This year I also photographed my first boy with flowers…..and why not. He looked simply divine surrounded by yellow and blue flowers.
