"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever......it remembers little things long after you have forgotten everything" ~Aaron Siskind
I am a family, newborn and lifestyle branding photographer based in Liverpool.
My aim is to capture true connection and authenticity in a person, whether that be the love between a mother and her child, the passion between two people, or the unique spirit of an individual.
I bring an energy to my shoots that encourage you to be yourself and feel relaxed in front of the camera; children to feel comfortable being totally wild and free and for me to document you in the most natural way.let me find out about you! book your consultation
I have to say, it means so much to have you here.
Photography is my absolute passion and to have you be part of my journey, enriches it even more, so thank-you, truly.
I’m Victoria and I’m a lifestyle branding photographer and family and newborn photographer, in the wonderful city of Liverpool, but I work all over North West, including Cheshire, Manchester and The Wirral. (I've also been known to travel down to London on request)
I've been a photographer part time for four years alongside working in Manchester Children's Hospital and I left my NHS job as an Occupational Therapist in June 2020, to pursue my photography career full time - I haven't looked back.
Since starting my photography journey, I've also found a passion in teaching it, which is why I set up my beginners photography workshop - now online. I help parents learn to use their neglected DSLRs and take beautiful images of their kids!
Having had 15 years working as a paediatric occupational therapist, I've worked with children from all walks of life, with all levels of abilities and disabilities. I know the importance of being able to adapt to a child's needs and not make demands for them to fit into our own schedule. I care deeply about making children feel included, comfortable and happy to work with me.
I understand the difficulty that comes with autism, sensory processing disorders, attention deficit disorders, to name a few and I make sure I create an environment in my sessions that celebrate their differences and encourage their spirit to shine through.
No child or parent coming to one of my session should leave, having felt stressed or under pressure to perform.
My career in OT has also given me such a unique set of skills when working with people on a one-to-one basis. I love learning about and meeting new people. It gives me such a lift of positive energy, which I bring to all my shoots. I love getting to know other females striving to grow their business and succeed and being able to document their power and personalities visually.
My photography style is laid back and natural. I don't believe in forced poses, instead creating safe spaces for people to be themselves, which in turn lead to authentic and natural photography.
I would love to get to know what type of photography you are after! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I'd love to hear from you.
The photos are so natural and beautiful. Victoria is a lovely lady who was very patient with all of us especially the kids and went out of her way to accommodate us.
I highly recommend her!
My daughter and I loved getting outdoors for this relaxed and fun photo shoot in the Autumn. Victoria really captured us in this season beautifully, just what I wanted.

Victoria is so talented, kind and patient. She made me feel comfortable, worked quickly and gave me so many beautiful images. I couldn't believe how many from the shoot I loved.
I would recommend her work to anyone.
Create a unique and stunning wall art display, to really finish off the artistic style of your home, for your friends and family to admire when they visit.
Take the time and stress off of having to print and frame your images- I do that for you, styled and ready to hang.
