Family portraits are an important part of our history.
I was born in Dublin, but we moved to London with my father’s work when I was a child. It was only supposed to be for 6 months. We are all still here.
When I left school in Bath, much to my housemistress’ frustration, I choose Art College over a degree in English. I trained in woven textiles and, during this time, I did a placement in Florence, Italy designing handbags. I was offered a job and invited to return when I graduated. I was very relieved as my heart was firmly in creating Italian accessories and no longer in textiles.
All good things must come to an end and I eventually moved back to the UK. I met my husband-to-be a few weeks later. He simply couldn’t wait to get a ring on my finger and, after a brief courtship of 7 years, he proposed. I left the accessories industry to become a full-time mother when I had my two gorgeous girls.
After some years of freelancing, I wanted to return to a creative environment and, when I met Julia, she offered me a role at Boggio Studios on the bookings team.
Life is now full of lovely families: both my own and those that come to be photographed at the studio.
