I run my own photography business from my family friendly studio in a village location. My focus is on capturing lifelong memories.
I am a passionate photographer with an extensive background in childcare and I have merged these two passions into Gemerations.
I aim my photography towards the early years sector, from Maternity, through to newborn, Sitters, Cake smash also themed and seasonal photo shoots.
I am based at my home in Beighton, Norfolk in a custom built studio. I am located just 5 minutes from Acle and the A47, and just under 30 minutes from Norwich and Great Yarmouth.
I am a highly qualified and experienced early years childcare practitioner who has worked with children and their families since 2008 in a variety of job roles.
Many people are unaware that childhood photography is an unregulated industry, with no requirements for training or qualifications. I feel that having a background in the childcare sector is crucial, as I have knowledge on child development and safeguarding, as well as the practical skills in being able to communicate and interact effectively with children, adjusting this according to their age and stage of development.
Even with this childcare knowledge and experience, I still feel it is highly important to receive regular training and updates specific to the photography sector.
