Adress: SW17, Tooting Bec

I am an ensured photographer and am a member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers, SWPP. I have trained with a number of established photographers in Studio and Portrait Lighting, Headshots and Portraits, Newborn Photography, Outdoor Children Photography and do regular one to ones with an award winning photographer in Wandsworth.

My charity work

Helping others means a lot to me and I want to help directly and also by bringing people together in our community. I support 4 charities that specifically resonate with me and I am planning to do a number of fundraising events throughout 2019 to support them further:
Help Them Grow was created by five other Albanian mums in London and me and we send second hand toys and books to Albanian state nurseries. You can always help by brining a bag of toys that you want to clear out at one of the sessions we do together Help Them Grow
Cup of Uji feeds underprivileged children in Kenya with a daily cup of porridge that keeps them in school
Samara’s Aid Appeal started by Samara a mum from Brighton, helps displaced people in the Middle East with clothes and emergency health support Samara’s Aid Appeal
SOS Children Villages care after children who are on their own and vulnerable by offering them a “home” SOS Children’s Villages UK

The first event I organised a “Photography Party” at the Wheatsheaf in Tooting Bec, raised £290! I offered to take headshots for a contribution to 2 causes: A Cup of Uji and Samara’s Aid Appeal. The story behind these 2 charities and why I support them is in a recent blog I wrote here.
