About

Hello and welcome to Northern Angel Photography. I'm Heidi, the photographer behind Northern Angel Photography. As well as being a wife and mother to three young boys, my passion is photography. I have always loved playing with cameras since I was given my first 110mm camera as a teenager. I have always been 'the one with the camera' ever since. If ever there was an embarrassing photo taken on a night out I probably took it!

It wasn't until I had my first son in 2008 that I invested in a 'proper' camera, a second hand Nikon D50, and took a thousand pictures a day of my son on the auto setting! I repeated this for sons two and three until I joined a camera club in 2015 and really started to learn about photography and how to use a camera properly. At the club we learned a different skill every week so I had to learn how to use all of the different settings on my camera and leave the auto setting behind!! I also attended newborn photography training with Claire Elliott and children's outdoor photography training with Lisa McCormick, Roberta Baneviciene and Sujata Setia; four of the most talented photographers anyone could ever meet.  After my time with them I had finally found what I wanted to do with my photography.

I love all types of photography but working with children is just so rewarding. You need an infinite amount of patience to catch the perfect picture but luckily I have had three boys and a few years to practice! My style is very relaxed as I have learned that when the children feel comfortable and relaxed, the adults feel comfortable as well. It usually takes about two hours for a photography session (up to four for a newborn) and during this time we will play some games, pull some funny faces and use a few tricks to get the best smiles.  Afterwards I hand edit all of the photos so you will always look your best!

I look forward to hearing from you and getting the opportunity to provide you with some special memories that you can treasure.
