"Simply gorgeous photographs we will treasure forever"
AND THANK YOU FOR VISITING MY WEBSITE!
For me, what matters is you ….
My greatest pleasure comes from bringing out the best in others – whether taking beautiful portraits that capture the essence of a person, or teaching others and sharing my experience and passion for photography.
I love getting to know people; and in my photoshoots I aim to help you feel relaxed and look wonderful so that I can capture special moments that you and your family will treasure forever.
Newborn photography is a particular passion. Nothing is as precious as those first days together – with only a short window in which to capture this unique time. Captivating newborn photographs, carefully composed and exquisitely lit, will preserve those moments forever.
I also love to teach photography and share my experience; and I delight in helping others to achieve extraordinary results that surpass their expectations. I offer training and mentoring to photographers at all stages of their journey, from beginners to experienced professionals.
My photography has been featured in a variety of international publications such as Marie Claire, Travel + Leisure Magazine and I was Finalist for Travel Photographer of the Year.
I am a member of the Society for Wedding and Portrait Photographers as well as the Newborn Art Academy. I also run all the photography courses for the Landmark Arts Centre in Teddington.
Please do give me a call or request a callback to find out more about my portrait sessions and my training and mentoring – I’d love to hear from you. I’m based in Teddington, southwest London, conveniently located for public transport and with parking directly outside.
My home studio is in Teddington, southwest London, conveniently located for public transport and with parking directly outside. I also cover Richmond, Twickenham, St Margarets, Wimbledon, Kingston upon Thames, Kew, Surbiton and surrounding areas in Surrey and London. I offer Portrait, Newborn, Maternity and Family Photography in all these areas, as well as Training Courses & Workshops.
"We have had endless compliments on our photos"
Jackie is brilliant. She is not just a great photographer; she is also fantastic at turning those photos into art.

WORKING COMMUNITIES IN BANGKOK CHINATOWN
