Hi there it's great to meet you, I'm Evonne, owner and photographer at The Smiling Willow Photography. I am also a proud mum of two wonderful kids.
Photography has always been a lifelong passion of mine, I have always loved capturing candid moments and so when I'm working in the field there is nothing like the heady feeling of capturing the in-between moments of raw authentic love mixed with traditional posed portraits. It helps to tell a story; and that's what I love to do, tell a story without words.
Similarly when photographing a newborn in my studio I aim for uncluttered, natural, organic poses. I love simple set ups, vintage props, gorgeous textures and earthy tones. Imagination, creativity, careful attention to detail and safety are always paramount in every photo shoot I do.
So please, grab a cup of coffee (or latte or tea or whatever takes your fancy) and have a look around, if you like what you see and you think you'd like me to shoot your next family photos, drop me an email or better still give me a call I'd love to have a chat with you.
