MY JOURNEY

I would love to tell you more…

… but first tell me more about you.

How can I help? What ages are your children? Have you just had a newborn and you want to plan a photoshoot?

Don’t worry, I can help and I can be very flexible and patient. I am used to working with children and busy parents and can shoot families and babies in the home, in the studio or outdoors.

Stunning images, great quality and reliability are key to me and the way I run my photography.

It would be great to meet in person or speak on the phone, so let me know when you are ready.

The bit about me

I was born and raised in Albania, Tirana and have spent most of my adult life in different countries. France where I lived for 7 years and went to Uni and London where I have lived with my husband for the last 11 years. We have 2 boys, Edward 8 and Elliot 5 and we would love a dog.

I love cycling, yoga, meeting for coffee and spending time with family and friends.

We spend our summer holidays in the South of Albania, which is very close to Corfu and is stunning, I invite you to visit!

I started taking photographs as a student in Paris, and continued through the different phases of my life, graduation, working life, becoming a mum. 

Making the jump from a passion to a job, happened naturally 3 years ago when I decided to take a different direction from policy & marketing, my previous careers.

ALWAYS

LOOKING FOR LOVE

FINDING

THE LIGHT

LOVING

OLD AND NEW

The bit about my training

I have trained in studio photography, children & outdoors photography, newborns, headshots and also running a business. I am fully insured as a professional photographer.

I am a partner with Clapham Mums online magazine designed for mums, dads and carers with the most up to date information on events & activities in Battersea and Clapham.

Other Parts of My Work 

One part of my business is about companies and individuals looking to update imagery for their website, social media and marketing materials, more in Headshots and Businesses.

I organise regular networking events in Tooting Bec, for small businesses in the area that want to connect, make new contacts and learn together. If you’d like to attend drop me an email, we meet every last Wednesday of the month. More details on my Facebook page “Small business network”.

I also run fundraising events for the charities I support and over the last 2 years  I have raised £3500 through “Headshots for charity” events organised in Tooting Bec and also Doorstep Photographys during the pandemic, more in Raising Funds for God Causes.

ART ENABLES US TO FIND OURSELVES AND LOSE OURSELVES AT THE SAME TIME

We had a fantastic time with Laura taking photos of our family on Tooting Common. She was very good at providing direction and built a rapport with both my small children. We were definitely happy with the end results and the photos that we selected from the shoot made brilliant gifts for our family.

SO WONDERFUL
