I'm Vicky and this is about me. I love photographing people!… babies, toddlers, teens, families, couples, weddings, corporate events… I think you get the picture. I started my career as an Art Director working in a Marketing and Advertising Agency which were great times, but when I started my second career (my family) I closed the Agency chapter and opened a new one. I trained as a photographer and now apply my eye for design to my photography skills and delight in capturing beautiful images. My style is fun and relaxed with a contemporary edge and my background as a designer adds a unique quality so I hope you enjoy looking through my photographs and see what you are looking for.

What to expect
It starts with you, it's all about you and the end product is you looking amazing!
I am always very excited when I get a call to discuss a photo shoot, firstly, I like to take some time to get to know you a little and understand what kind of photographs you are hoping for. We'll work out the best time and place for your session and then the fun begins. Wether we're capturing precious moments of your babies first days or the whole family are gathering for a picnic shoot the experience will be one you'll enjoy and I pride myself on making everyone relaxed and happy in front of my lens. Trust me, even the most camera shy can shine with a little coaching.
A few days before your session I'll give you a quick call to chat through any questions you may have, discuss outfit ideas and any props you might want to include. And if the shoot is on location we can discuss the weather forecast and other possibilities if a hurricane's on it's way. I'm fortunate to live in a beautiful Hamlet surrounded by countryside so a shoot in my garden between the showers can make a stunning setting! Wellies, brollies and muddy puddles here we come!.
My style of portraiture is relaxed and fun, allowing you to feel comfortable so I can capture the real you and children always photograph best when they're having a great time. With three children of my own, ages ranging from 5 - 12, I always enjoy having a giggle and basically I love connecting with people of all ages which hopefully comes across when you see my gallery and read my testimonials.
I don't stick to a strict time slot but find that 2 hours is a good length session to ensure I can capture the best of everyone. This is something we can discuss if you require more or less time. Usually everyone is looking forward to a nice cup of tea after the session and I can't wait to check through all your images. The next stage typically takes up to two weeks, where I'll edit a large selection of your photos and produce a disc which is all yours to enjoy, print off as many as you like, make wallpaper if you so wish, but most of all... enjoy!.
I can probably guess what you're thinking... nearly everyone says they don't like having their picture taken, but I excel in capturing the best of you. Wether you're 1 or 100, everyone is photogenic and I would love to prove that to you. Some people find the idea of a photo shoot stressful, however I have plenty of tips to help you prepare. It's all about reflecting the real you in the most flattering way and of course enjoying yourself. After all, it’s important that your photos carry wonderful memories. So why not choose an outdoor location to put you at ease, your favourite park, beach or even the comfort of your garden. Natural light is very flattering for all types of portraits and also allows a bit more space for kids to run around and be their true playful selves.
Portrait Session starts from £175. A session involves -
• A pre-shoot consulatation to get to know you and understand your requirements
• A session typically lasts for up to two hours and can produce approximately 60 stunning images
• After your session I'll edit your images and create your disc of high resolution, non watermarked pics, all of which have a wonderful sprinkle of magic to make them really special.
Call or email today to schedule your session. We'll have fun, I can't wait to hear from you!

Some nice words from a few of the lovely people I have worked with recently
"Dear Vicky Lewis, Thankyou sooo much for these lovely photos. I sent them off to Steve and he loved them. Can't wait to see the wedding photos xxx"
"Wow Vicky Lewis these are amazing, they make me relive our special day all over again. Thankyou xxx I love them all xxx"
"Thank you for making the photo shoot yesterday such good fun, we can't wait to see the pictures :) Once again you were brilliant at directing the whole shoot xxxxx"

"Hi Vicky, Just been looking through the photos with Simon and they are simply wonderful! Thank you. Now the difficult choice of which to get printed up and on the wall - perhaps we'll fill a whole wall!"
"Estate agents employ photographers to take the pictures and they are just that, its a picture that says nothing. We have been trying to sell our house for 6 months so we had Vicky take pictures of the house and they were everything that we wanted. It showed we loved and looked after our house, the pictures were brilliant, we will keep them forever, Thanks Vicky."... (The house was sold 1 week after these pictures went online!!!)
