I'M OLIVIA. WIFE + MUMMY + PHOTOGRAPHER
I remember when I was really young I’d always love to pretend I had a camera
and make a lens shape with my hands and hold it up to my eye. I always found
it so interesting how the world looked and would pretend I was taking pictures.
Twenty five years on I’m still just the same the only difference is I have a real camera!
I’m a West Midlands based documentary styled Photographer.
I’m married to my best friend Phil who is the brains in the relationship.
We got married in 2012 at the church we met at and had an awesome day full of so many precious hilarious moments (Got really embarrassed at my dad's amazing speech!) and lots and lots of dancing!! Experiencing the day for yourself as a bride makes you appreciate just how special the most important day of your life is. I therefore feel extremely privileged and honoured to play just a small part in capturing those special moments on the most important day of your life.
We are blessed to be mummy and daddy to our wonderful boys Eli and Isaac, who is growing up so fast and just a joy! Hard work but full of character, just like me when I was young!
There's nothing quite as special as capturing those precious moments within the walls of your own home or going on your favourite walk. Every day is filled with a countless number of shared moments between loved ones and it's those memories that I love to capture.
My family sessions are a relaxed affair where by you can choose your favourite activities to do as a family like baking or going for a stroll.
The first word that comes to mind about being a wedding photographer is 'honoured'! Its a huge privilege and honour to be able to capture a couple's wedding day! I remember how special the day was for my husband and I and how precious it is now to look back on the photos from our day.
As a documentary photographer my approach is to capture the real true moments of the day be it the happy tears, the laughter or those funny moments. I love to see how each couple express themselves in their unique way!
Whether it's a special occasion like an engagement, wedding anniversary or you just fancy some special photographs of you both,
a couple shoot is a wonderful way to capture some fun and relaxed moments between you both.
Whether you're an artist, or wanting to promote your local business photography is a vital part in showcasing who you are and what you do! It's about capturing your brand, what you stand for and what makes you tick as an individual or small enterprise. Being a graphic designer as well as a photographer for the last 10 years my work focuses mainly on branding so I really understand the importance of strong photography for you and your business.
That window of time when a mum carries her baby, although it can feel so long (especially that first and third trimester) does in fact fly by when you look back at that phase of life. To carry your baby is full of tough moments but so incredibly precious too! A moment in life for sure and one I love to capture!
