Hello, I’m Carmen.

It’s nice to meet you and thanks for visiting my little home on the web.

As a mother of two, I know how important it is to have some beautiful memories of your family. I would love to take some professional portraits for you to love and enjoy.

I am a family photographer first and foremost. I love documenting the love and connection that families have and I also love how every family is so unique.

I have specialised in baby and newborn photography for the past few years. This is because I enjoy working with babies. I have a natural affinity with them and it fits me well. But maybe this also has something to do with my own pregnancy journey which you can read about here.

Whether my day involves photographing people young or old, what I really love about my job most of all is that I have the pleasure of interacting with a range of individuals. It is always interesting for me to get to know new people. I also get a huge kick out of making people feel good about themselves. I love that I can create something for you that will be enjoyed by your whole family and stored as memories for future generations. A moment in time, captured for always. It is an absolute privilege.

Thanks for stopping by. Let’s book in a photoshoot!


Also about me:

  • Personally, I hate getting my own photo taken. So I guess I know how you feel. I can assure you that I will help you feel comfortable and at ease and take photos that flatter you and that you will love.
  • I love animals. Our beloved pets have recently departed this world due to old age. As we have young children, we are taking a break from pet ownership for a couple of years. However this means that I LOVE photographing your pets. Your fur babies are always welcome to come along for any session. 
  • I love coffee, probably way too much.
  • My other favourite things are trees, seascapes, reading (I am a book nerd), ballet, the wind, the darkness, all things cinema, travel, cheese, my family and being lazy binge watching series on Netflix*
  • *Not necessarily in that order 😉
