Birmingham Portrait PhotographerRLWhiteclear 20 1024x510 - Home


I shoot modern portraits that tell personal stories of YOU and those special to you.  Celebrating personal growth and beauty, treasured connections and visual narratives of LOVE. 

When was the last time you were professionally photographed? Or when was the last time you had images of yourself and your family, that you loved?     

Through tailor-made portrait sessions in studio or on-location, we will work together to produce wonderful images that you will treasure now and for years to come! 

           Let me tell YOUR story!

Raphael Lionel will always be my go to studio for photography.. I felt looked after, understood and he made the effort to get to know me.

A Late Summer Wedding – Zak and Leah

A Spring Wedding at the New Cobden Hotel – Robert and Jackie

A spring wedding in April for Robert and Jackie came together wonderfully despite it being a month of showers and gales. 

My day began capturing the groom’s arrival at the Kingdom Hall along with his greeting guests and family.  Whatever warmth was lacking as regards the climate there was none missing among the happy smiles and meaningful  hugs! 

Holte School – IPeace and Unicef Films

Holte School asked me to shoot an informative film detailing their IPeace restorative process.   IPeace is a program developed by Dr Hilary Cremin who is a Senior Lecturer at Cambridge University, researching and teaching peace education and conflict resolution among pupils in schools.  Her book Positive Peace in schools includes references to Holte School and it’s successes, adopting the IPeace program.
