  • Welcome

    Hi I'm Jade,
    Welcome!

    I hope you feel at home here. I am a portrait and wedding photographer and film maker based in Oswestry Shropshire.

    "The home of heart warming photographs and film making evoking the simple beauties of everyday life"

    Life is so busy and fast we often miss the small things that make us grateful. Slow down, breathe, love, feel and I will capture the things that you don't always see.

    I really care about the people I photograph which is why I like to take the time to get to know you over a real conversation. I believe that foremost the real images reveal themselves when you are open in yourself and to the world around you.

    I want to capture you in your happy place, I will ask you what makes you happy and what makes your heart full. I love to capture those moments where you light up when you tell me whats important to you. That's my love to capture your love, your happiness, your story!

I have a secret to tell you…photographers sometimes get scared to take pictures.

How is that so?

Sometimes going out of my comfort zone is difficult. I have a kind of order in my mind of how I like things to be, in terms of maybe how I interact with the people, where I might place them and how I might like the light to look when they are interacting. From that point I let things go and capture the moments.1

I tend to stick with the use of lighting that I feel comfortable with as it were as this always lands me with great results where I can then just focus on the people and get those shots.2

When I started my business in 2011 I vowed I would never become complacement on doing the same thing. It’s good in a way as it show continuation of style but in some ways not because new creative boundaries arent always being broken to create amazing images.

As an artist myself and I’m sure others can relate to we put a great deal of pressure on ourselves creatively and sometimes we just need a break where we can just focus on the world around us, what I mean for me is taking time to breathe, soak up goodness, relax the mind and body, spend time out in nature and in time things will appear as you never saw them before.

I now look at the way light falls in my home like I never have before. Its given me new eyes to capture something really different for me.3

Every morning when we go downstairs for breakfast the first thing George loves to do is to look out of the window and here is just one instance where I noticed that beautiful light is everywhere we just have to watch and wait.4

So yes my secret is out, I do get scared. Scared of trying new things. Maybe it’s because I’m scared the results won’t be as good as what I know I’m good at producing or maybe its because I’m scared people not might like them as much. This year I have felt a change to go right out of my comfort zone. Each time I have I have been fascinated by what Iv’e learnt. That’s where the magic happens!

What matters is that I will not stop creating because it was the one thing I was born to do.7
