about Katy

Hi, I'm Katy. I'm a photographer and a mum. I've always loved creating, dabbling in drawing, painting and sewing when I was younger, and, more recently, crochet. I've always been drawn to photography, but only had the opportunity to get my own "proper" camera (DSLR) about 7 years ago. I have been passionately learning everything I could about the technique and art of photography ever since.

When I don't have a camera in my hand (and I'm not ferrying the kids from one place to the other) I love to watch TV - Doctor Who and Star Trek are among my favourites (although you can probably catch me watching reality programs on occasion too).
