A little bit about this Tamworth photographer…
Hi, Im Debbie and I am an international Multi Gold Award Winning, fully qualified Master craftsman & Published photographer specialising in newborn, baby and child photographer in Tamworth, Staffordshire, previously based in Birmingham.
I have always been interested in photography, which no doubt stems from my dad’s personal interest when I was I growing up. I have fond memories of me being on the other side of the camera as it was always made fun, and I now have great photos of exciting times to look back at.
During my school years, I undertook various photography courses and learnt the art of photography using film. Learning on film I believe has given me the greatest knowledge and understanding of getting images right in camera and the art of taking a good image. Photography, however,remained a part-time hobby for many years and I would often go out taking photos of buildings or landscapes, very rarely people.
It wasn’t until the birth of my first child that my passion was reignited. Having nearly lost my son at birth, I wanted to be able to capture and treasure every moment that followed as too quickly children grow and time passes by in the blink of an eye. As most of us mum’s do I got very trigger happy snapping pictures of my children, wanting to keep the memories alive
I now have two beautiful children that are my inspiration for wanting to follow my passion for photography even further. As a mum, I know how special it is to record your children growing up but we never think of getting an image printed as a one off piece of art hung on our walls that will last for years to come.
I believe that if my children continue to have enjoyment in their photos being taken, and I do take a lot of them, then I must be doing something right! Photo sessions should be fun where kids are involved, this is not just a photography session this is a memory for them and should be exciting.
I love being able to capture children’s personalities and tailor my photography to the child and family. I love to be able to capture something different each session and give client’s something unique to them. I love being able to create new styles and themes.
Whilst I do love my studio sessions and getting to create timeless images, I also enjoy the natural side to photography and particularly enjoy venturing into the great unknown with my camera and models. Not only do children enjoy the sense of adventure that comes with sessions outside the confines of a studio photography, it hopefully means a fun and relaxed atmosphere … the aim being to create happy memories of a lovely day that will last a lifetime (along with the photos).
I am a trained professional who enjoys capturing the magic of newborns and families and helping to create memories that you will treasure a whole lifetime. I can bring you the very best products and wall art made to the highest quality.
