Storytelling / Emotive / Honest / Creative Photography
Emma North, lover of tattoos, various shades of pink, unicorns, japanese video games from the 90's, motorbike riding, Tim Burton inspired, collector of shiny stuff (my inner magpie loves bling, and glitter.....lots of glitter) and full time tea addict. I live with my husband Kyle, 3 little monsters, our dogs Morrison the German shepherd, Pixie our Chihuahua, Lennon our black lab, Ruby the rat, Mystery our cat (that came free with the house), a bunny called Charlie, Phil the bearded dragon, 5 chickens, a psychotic rooster and Kevin our rescue crow.... phew might open a petting zoo.
When I'm not taking photographs I'm out fixing and riding motorbikes, shooting arrows (robin hood style), watching Disney movies with the monsters (i've become somewhat of a Disney expert.... I can pretty much sing along to all the songs). I am also trying to take up yoga... trying.... it's not going particularly well so far.
I studied fine art, was an art teacher for a while and decided that I love being able to document moments and memories so much that I started my own photography business... and I love it.
I prefer to adopt a storytelling approach to documenting your day, capturing all the wee details and moments as they happen... like a photo ninja... stealth mode.
Yes we can do some fun (semi-posed) images, couple shots and group shots but the rest of the time I will be off taking candid photos whilst you are having fun with your loved ones. If you do happen to notice me and wonder what the heck is she doing?? ( People often think this about me) I might just be taking your favourite photo.
I am not a fan of firing squad photography.... well that's what I call it, when you have 500 photos of people looking posed, scared and generally awkward. I think that when you capture people naturally it tells the story better.... wouldn't you rather have a photo of your aunt Mabel* moshing than 30 of her standing looking uncomfortable? Sure I would (plus you can always use it as blackmail later)
From the eyes of a storyteller, daydreamer and fully qualified and insured photo ninja.... your fairy tale.
* Random name choice, not actual person reference..... but maybe yer aunt Mable loves a good mosh
