Getting To Know Your Business 

Do you have a shop front? Where are you based? 

Life Is Beautiful is a mobile studio –  so I come to you!  

Your portrait session will take place in the comfort of your home, so no need to worry about coming out to a studio.   I want you and your baby to feel relaxed and comfortable so you are able to feed on demand and put your feet up – your home is the perfect place!

Tell me a bit about your business, what makes it special?

When you choose Life is Beautiful Photography you have the comfort of knowing that your photographic experience will be to the highest professional level; you can trust us and know that you will have guaranteed beautiful results. 

I believe in hand made over mass produced, quality over quantity, craftsmanship over cost effective. The world is filled with wonder and I believe in the importance of capturing it. I do not believe in hidden costs or a pushy sales environment. 

I sell memories, laughs and create magic moments that last a lifetime – we are after all, the storytellers of life!

How long have you been in business? 

My enthusiasm for photography started when I was around 9 years old, I loved capturing life as it was happening and creating emotions through art and photography. My mum told me once, we were on holiday in Corfu, I picked up my family’s “film” camera and started taking photos – I said to my mum “this is what I want to do, when I grow up I want to be a photographer”. I love capturing that moment, that memory, that amazing time in your life where you can visit and revisit again!

I took that passion and creativity through school – My school allowed me to be the “guinea pig” as such, as back then Photography wasn’t on the curriculum, I was the only person in my A Level class who studied photography. Since then I believe they ran the class as GCSE and A Level and has proven to be very popular!!

I left school in 2005 and went on to gain a 2.1 BA Hons degree in Photographic Art. When I graduated 10 years ago, I applied for a job as a cruise ship photographer with Princess Cruises. This was an amazing job – traveling the world, meeting new people! It was just an incredible and humbling experience, it changed my outlook on life and made me who I am today! I met my other half on there, he was a photographer too and we have been on such an adventure ever since we met!

In 2012, we both left the ships and decided to live our life in the U.K. We moved to Suffolk in 2013, when I opened Life Is Beautiful and having gained invaluable experience through my chosen career as a portrait photographer, I now run my own successful business specialising  in Maternity, Newborn and Baby Photography.

I love what I do – creating beautiful, artistic photographs of the people and events that are precious to you.  I believe photography has the power to capture the unique spirit of every individual and let their energy shine through. Everyone deserves to have their story told.

What is your favourite part of being your own boss? 

I love being able to wake up every morning and enjoy going to people’s homes and making them laugh – laughter is the key to happiness and happiness is the key to a fulfilled life.  

Do you offer products or services? Please give information about these products / services. 

I offer many different types of photography to suit our clients; ranging from Newborn to Cake smash, to Glitter sessions to Fine Art Portraits.  Please see our website for the latest photographic experiences and prices.

What is your favourite product or service you offer? 

This is a hard question as I love all of my photographic sessions as they are all so different. 

If I was going to pick one I would say Newborn – photographing your wonderful Newborn baby is one of the most important things in the first stages of their lives. They are only this small for just an instant. You will want to remember their milk spots, tiny toes, fluffy hair, squishy legs and all that is new and fresh about them. They are brand new people, and they will change so quickly.  I love  telling their story through my lens.

If I want to hire you for your services, how can I do this/find you?

Time to get a bit personal… 

 What kind of family commitments do you need to juggle along with your business? How do you find balance?

Currently no children as yet (I do have a fur baby though)  so not much else to juggle apart from spending time with my other half and my family. 

What are your favourite tv shows, foods, or songs? TV Shows: Bake off, X Factor and Call the Midwife 

Food: Pizza,  chocolate  and a cuppa tea! 

Songs: Summer of 69, I want to dance with somebody and a (guilty pleasure) ‘What makes you beautiful’ 

What can you be found doing when you have time off? 

I love yoga and meditation – my life can be so hectic at times that its hard for me to switch off and relax; so I practice yoga at least once a week to help me stay focused and have sometime to myself. 

What is your favourite place to get away to? And why? 

I love the sea, the fresh air and the sound of the waves – so when I have time off, I’m usually near a beach somewhere!  

And last but not least! Snog, Marry, Avoid: Mr Tumble, Mr Bloom, Mr Maker!! 

Snog: Mr Bloom

Marry: Mr Maker

Avoid: Mr Tumble (sorry Mr Tumble…)
