I’m Karen, I adore creating images. I’ve always been fascinating by faces and expressions – photography is a beautiful kind of convergence. Portraiture is natural for me, as there is a sense of wonder to it and I love capturing the essence of those in front of my lens.
I love experimenting with lighting and specialise in B&W photography, believing that monotone portray a kind of fantasy that I feel is enthralling. My colour photos are influenced by the look of classic film stocks that emphasises cooler tones.
I shoot headshots, portraits and on-location photography, including family photo shoots, child portraits, couples shoots, business photography, pet portraits, actor headshots, dating profile photos, fine art portraiture, commission/conceptual work and model portfolios.
I’m an advocate of printing images and offer a range of C-type photographic papers, Fuji Lustre, Crystal Archival (matte), Flex (ultra-high gloss) and Kodak Metallic, along with print products such as canvas, aluminium, acrylic and wood. I also offer digital images and retouching services.

Headshots are ideal for LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, CV’s, press releases and websites. Session are typically shot in-studio on a white backdrop and renders a very modern and bright image. There is also the option for advanced lighting techniques, such as noir photography (which is fabulous for B&W) that offers a bit more dimension to your images. Shot on a grey or black backdrop, this is a more creative spin on the headshot.
In the studio things are relaxed, we’ll enjoy tea, a chat and a bit of experimentation. I’ll employ several lighting techniques to create variety in the shots. Sessions may be customised with digital images, prints etc, also, make-up artistry, hair styling, and props (additional fees apply). This is ideal for individuals, couples, pets, children (ages 9 & up) and commissions.
The sky’s the limit when you go on-location, we can go adventurous or keep it simple. Let’s have some fun together! Maybe a walk through the park, hang out in your back garden or perhaps visit your favourite spot. This is ideal for individuals, families, child portraits, couples shoots, pet portraits and dating profile photos.
