  • A little about me

    What can i say about me apart from the fact I am 52 and don’t dye my hair?? I am generally happy, a bit cheeky, love to be involved and love my son, and our dog Jeremy. I am protective of my little family and organise my business around family life. Thats not to say I dont take my business seriously. I do. It is vital to me and is one of my creative outlets…. the other being Argentine Tango! I am so lucky to live a life where I get to do what I love every day!


I love the naturalness portrayed in your images, both for the organisation, I work for but also for my family, too. You are always reliable and punctual and sensitive to the needs of the people who are photographed.

Hilary, you are an awesome mentor!

Thank-you for the photo story-books. They are beautiful and will be treasured.

“Hilary’s warmth and professionalism puts you immediately at ease. She captured such special moments at my wedding, managing to be in the perfect place at the perfect time to capture the smiles, the hugs, and the tender moments. She is a technical master and the lighting and depth of field she uses create interest, drama and romance and set her apart from other photographers we looked at. I immediately thought of Hilary when I needed profile photos taken and am delighted with the results. Whether its capturing the relaxed and fun moments at a big event or creating a professional portfolio of images for your business, I wouldn’t turn to anyone else.”

“Hilary! Yet again you have captured my gorgeous family in the most natural and beautiful way…. I absolutely love love love them…..

Thank you again

…a great photographer who had TWO cushions on your head and a puppet in one hand AND the camera in the other, not that you’d probably want to promo that…( we did have a very moody 2yr old)
We do love that you are so flexible with the different locations you allow us to go to every year. Also that you allow us to buy a cd of all photo’s that we can keep forever and ever.
The photo’s that you have taken are priceless, we have captured the girls in the most natural way of them being themselves.

Christina and Adam Wade

I’ve had a quick glance at the blog and it looks stunning. We were so happy with your work on the day and the photographs speak for themselves! We certainly made the right choice to go with the best!
