I was born the same year a hurricane hit the UK, and grew up in Southern England. My hobbies are all 'hands-on'.. I sew, crochet, garden and upcycle old furniture. There's nothing better than making something or giving it a new lease of life! I've got a young family and a 2yr old spaniel - we love to walk for miles in the country spotting the wildlife, and shooting it (with the zoom lens) wherever possible. I am incredibly sentimental, way too emotional and love deeply. I consider my work to be passionate, moody and film-like, if there's movement - bonus! My work mantra is 'keep it real' - I search all day for the best moments happening on their own.
I became interested in photography quite early, using film SLR cameras to photograph whatever I could find in the garden. In 2003 my artistic learning started when I studied Photography at Farnborough Sixth Form College, and then onto the Open College of the Arts (accredited by UCA) in 2011 in-between work experience and family life. Having children really opened my eyes to life’s little moments; how important they feel and how quickly they seem to pass by. I began photographing weddings for friends and family, and In 2015 (from rather humble beginnings) I opened my photography business after Explore Enterprise with the Prince's Trust. My work has been featured in a few magazines including Norfolk Brides, Photography Monthly, ON:Yorkshire and The World of Photography. There are plenty of opportunities and goals for future work too.
Where am I based?
I moved to Kings Lynn, Norfolk in 2014 after many years visiting. I love this place - It has the perfect balance of town convenience and wild countryside with an abundance of incredible creatures and stunning views, not to mention the spectacular view into the night sky with low 'light pollution'. The beaches are close by as well, and I love to use them for work (and play)! I've travelled up and down the UK for work, as well as people coming to me from overseas (WOW).
What do i photograph?
I call myself a portrait and wedding photographer first, but each time I try to give myself a category I fail. For example; I love to work with families... or expectant families.. maternity.. and new babies! Oh... I'd LOVE to photograph a birth. And don't shy away from the most beautiful things that you want to remember, like breastfeeding your baby. The same thought process happens for portraits and couples, I could go on for days.
So, basically, I simply love to work with people.
Well... And animals.

"Esther is absolutely amazing.. From start to finish! When I first booked my daughters shoot she worked closely with me to achieve the theme I was looking for and oh my did the end photos come out just as I expected, if not better! There's not one shot I am unhappy with. I highly recommend Esther and will definitely be using her again in the future! Thank you so much for capturing amazing moments I can treasure forever <3" - Kerry
"I bit the bullet and booked a glitter shoot with Esther and I'm so over the moon with how the pictures have turned out. She is incredibly talented and an ultimate professional and I wouldn't hesitate to book with her again. Thank you so much xx" - Laura
"Absolutely fantastic shots, and a lot of fun to do too! I've never done a holi shoot before, and Esther took some amazing pictures. She worked with what angles she thought were best, and re-did shots that she particularly liked to make sure we got the exact photos we wanted." - Ashleigh
"I recently won a photoshoot with Esther and we decided to have it as a family shoot with our new born baby. She was absolutely amazing from when I won, to the initial meeting and the shoot itself. So friendly and professional and has continued to be since! Our photos were absolutely beautiful and we could not have asked for more. Thank you so much. Xxxx" - Josie
"We booked Esther to take some photos of our new arrival and we couldn't be happier with the results! As we are not that comfortable in front of the camera we were a bit apprehensive of having professional photos done, but were made to feel very relaxed and at ease during the whole process. The photos are stunning with a lovely natural feel to them and the pack that we received is gorgeous. We will treasure these photos and memories for years to come. Thank you Esther!" - Aaron, Vicki and Family
"We would just like to give a heartfelt thank you to Esther for the amazing work she did at our Autumn family session at Sandringham Woods. As a fellow photographer, it's hard not to be picky and set in your ideas when it comes to having your own family photos taken. Esther listened to my thoughts and hopes for the session and delivered everything I wanted and more! Despite difficult conditions (freezing weather and my three uncooperative children!) she worked her magic and produced the most beautiful, emotive images that we will cherish forever. We can't wait to display our new artwork in our home. Esther's, unique charming style was worth every bit of our 100+ mile journey to get to the session, and we will definitely be back again in the future. Thank you!" - Jayne, Iain & family
"Such a wonderful positive woman who has an amazing eye for the shot! I have been lucky enough to work with you twice and I have my third session booked. I love seeing your posts as inspiration for my future in pictures. I really should start buying more frames (and book a fourth shoot to include my daughter this time). Much love xxx" - Rebecca
"Hi Esther, I received our photo package today and just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with it. The shoot itself was great (I was concerned my daughter wouldn't play along) but you've captured some lovely shots of her playing on the beach (and smiling!) I am totally in love with the photoblocks of the children and had lots of compliments on our photographs generally. I'm just really chuffed so thank you!" - Lisa
"Highly recommended! Amazing photo shoot - very relaxed which brought out the best in my daughter. Quick turnaround on receiving pictures and they were stunning... Subsequently ordered a Photoblock which arrived promptly, packaged beautifully and was absolutely breathtaking..... Thank you Esther!" - Suzanne.
"Such great photos, I was really impressed with how well they turned out. Esther made me feel very comfortable and the make-over by Georgia was very impressive. I would definitely recommend Beauty Days" - Denise.
