Based in West London, I am photographer, specialsing in capturing creative, relaxed and emotive portraits. My clients generally are women that care about having the milestones of their lives recorded - to be remembered and shared with those they love. My portfolio ranges from beautful lifestyle work with families, newborns, motherhood and maternity, as well as working closely with creative entrenpuers.
I work in way that each session can be regarded like a chapter of a book. One shoot might just be the begining, but I work closely and repeadely with my clients and toegther we capture those improtant chapters. I am there when you get engaged, have a baby, have a family. And that's what it comes down to - the stories. I shoot for clients again and again, and ultimately my goal is to produce a body of work, over time, that shows your story.
"We are a large family and dare I say demanding!
"Fiona is brilliant! Very professional and produces some amazing shots but makes you feel very much at ease, she is very laid back and a pleasure to work with. She came to our house and shot photos with our newborn. She knows her stuff and the quality of work she produces shows she has a massive passion for film photograph
All my images have been shot on film, using the best professional film out there and working with the top film scanners and editors about. To me, making your photographs is a whole process that has been crafted from beginning to end. From loading the film in the camera, winding it on and feeling it advance shot after shot - I just connect to it, it is me. Each time I click the shutter it makes the most perfect sound. I LOVE that sound. Then the waiting. Film needs to be developed and scanned, which takes time but the waiting makes the results that much sweeter!
Film offers a depth, colour palette and realness that I don't think can be matched by digital. It is also a tangible product. You can hold the film in your hands and see the details in the negative when you lift it up to the light. The colour is deeper, the lines are softer and the final product feel so much more special. However, after all is said and done - it's not so important how I shoot - as long as you connect with the process and the final product, we will get along perfectly.
