''Shan is an incredibly talented photographer. From our engagement through to the arrival of our son and daughter, she has helped us to document every magical memory with passion, laughter and love. Her unique style is matched with endless enthusiasm which helps to make the shoots relaxing and enjoyable, even with a tiring newborn and excitable toddler! There is no one else that we would choose to capture our precious family moments. Thank you Shan''

I believe photographs are our legacy. Having two children of my own, I know how truly important family photos are.
As the years move forward, our children grow older and the moments that matter the most become clearer amongst the everyday chaos of family life;
I realise that what truly matters, not only to me but also to those whom I photograph; is simply to be seen and to be loved; I look forward to capturing that love for you.
My passion is beyond just creating digital images for you. I also love creating timeless printed photos that you can hold in your hands and decorate your home with, bringing a smile to your face and love to your heart.
That they will be the reminder for you each day of everything that matters most to you.
Capture your precious memories & create timeless photographs for you & your loved ones to cherish forever.

bring your precious moments to life
How many of us have thousands of photos sitting idly in the computer or smart phone somewhere? All with the good intention of printing them out someday for everyone to enjoy. Because of the everyday chaos of family life those precious moments end up forgotten on your phone, computer, or social media.
Imagine instead, the pleasure of sitting down with family and friends and flipping through a treasured album, recounting the stories and memories; or walking past a beautiful frame display filled with the faces of your loved ones.
I value tangible memories. Photo prints that you can hold in your hands. This is why I want to capture your precious moments and create beautiful tangible memories beyond just digital photos for you.
This isn’t because I’m a photographer, It’s because I’m a mother, a daughter, a sister and a wife that knows all I could have left one day of the ones I love is a print in my hands; because it's all I have left of my mother.
I have carefully curated a list of products sourced from a number of the best providers, that can help you turn those digital images into beautiful keepsakes.
They are renowned worldwide as the finest custodians of your most cherished memories so that they can be handed, perfectly preserved, to future generations.

Frequently Asked Questions
The best time to photograph a newborn baby is when they are 5-14 days of age, when they're very sleepy and curly. You can contact us at any time during your pregnancy to give an estimated due date and we'll make a tentative booking. When you arrive home, from hospital with your brand new baby you can contact us to arrange a suitable time and day for your session.
Yes. Digital photos are included with your product photos. I also offer digital photos with my packages.
Absolutely! You can upgrade your packages or add on any products after you book or see your photos.
We provide beautiful white dresses, a newborn white onesie and white clothing for babies and toddlers. If you would like to bring your own clothing, then it's best to make sure they're comfortable, simple, and solid-coloured, avoiding logos or patterns. The best outfits give a timeless and classic look that will last through the years. For a classic look, choose WHITE (my signature style) or soft palette colours, such as light grey or pastels.
Your studio photoshoot will take place in my home studio, Port Erin, Isle of Man. The studio is a beautiful, light-filled space with three separate rooms – a shooting and relaxing room, a mother’s lounge for feeding and soothing, a toddler play area to keep older siblings entertained and a restroom that is fully stocked with extra nappies and wipes. Most importantly, the studio is a comfortable space where families can relax, have fun and just be themselves.
The session is very calm, slow, gentle, and at the pace of your baby. It involves lots of quiet, gentle soothing to get the best poses. I ask my clients to set aside 3 hours at most, so that we are not rushing, but generally sessions last 2 hours.
Expecting a new life is the most exciting time of your life. I would love to capture the love you have for your unborn child and the beauty of your pregnancy through my art. Your maternity photoshoot is very relaxing and an unforgettable experience. You can include your partner and other children in your session and photos.
I aim to capture your inner strength and beauty to create the most beautiful memories of your pregnancy for you to look back on and cherish.
My maternity style is elegant, classic and timeless. I love to capture the emotion of your special moments and make sure you feel totally at ease.
I suggest booking your maternity shoot around the beginning of your third trimester or towards the end of your second. The best time for your photoshoot is between 34 - 37 weeks. There is no set in stone time to have the shoot. Your photoshoot is about 1 hour at my studio in Port Erin, Isle of Man.
Beautiful white dresses are provided for your session. Please bring a white lingerie set. You don’t need to bring any specific shoes. If you would like to bring your own clothing, then it's best to make sure they're comfortable, simple, and solid-coloured, avoiding logos or patterns. The best outfits give a timeless and classic look that will last through the years. For a classic look, choose WHITE (my signature style) or soft palette colours, such as light grey or pastels.
Your bespoke photoshoot includes styling with a professional makeup artist and hairstylist, allowing you to sit back, relax and enjoy a luxurious time of pampering at your photoshoot.
I believe you are sitting there right now wondering how your little baby has grown so quickly.
Baby photography is so important because in that first year your baby changes more than they ever will again.
The best time to book your baby session is when your baby is around 6-9 months because this is when they start showing their personalities and are discovering so many new skills and are full of smiles.
They're also generally sitting on their own, which is super cute as it shows off all of their adorable baby rolls that will disappear so quickly when they start to walk.
My studio is full of beautiful little designer and organic clothing and natural wooden toys that your baby will love to play with!
The cake smash is a great fun way to celebrate your baby's first birthday. It's about celebrating your baby's milestone and the memories made. I capture all of your baby's smiles and excitement on camera so you have beautiful photos to treasure.
We start with playtime - singing, playing with bubbles and your baby can take their pick from the many stunning organic wooden toys that I have in the studio.
A beautiful bespoke cake is provided for your photoshoot. Some babies are really into the spirit of the cake smash and get stuck in, while others gently prod the icing and delicately nibble. Either way, you'll love seeing your baby's individual personality shine through when they're presented with the yummy birthday cake.
After they have had fun with their birthday cake it's a soak and a splash in my white kitchen sink. Babies always love this bit and we get some fantastic photos while they splash about and have a whale of a time.
Your photoshoot is about 1 1/2 hours.
