About Fern & Star

 

 

Hey ho!
I'm Victoria Bahadoor founder of Fern and Star Photography - Photographer and Educator.
~
I believe in community over competition and generally have an abundance over scarcity mindset. Helping others sparks happiness in me and I've been so fortunate in having mentored some incredible photographers over the past year and have loved watching them grow.

I live in a quaint apartment with my hot hubby David and my wild children Zachary and Seren. We spend our free time of exploring and picnicking in the local beauty spots, which I of course bank for my family shoots.
~
I've been a photographer part time for four years, which I started whilst on maternity leave and continued to do this alongside NHS job as an Occupational Therapist up until June 2020, when I left to pursue my photography career full time - I haven't looked back. 
~
I'm into interior design, house plants and stalking incredible illustrators on instagram and I love incorporating those things into my work.
~
I'm addicted to coffee.
~
I like walking in cemeteries (yes, i'm weird) It gives me a sense of peace.
I'd like to say I love books and I do but I currently spend most of my time listening to inspiring people on clubhouse.

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.

Our family dream is to move to New Zealand and we actually had a one way ticket for December last year, but of course Covid-19 had other ideas.
This means I get to photograph the wonderful families and female business owners of Liverpool a little while longer! Every cloud.

Thank- you for taking the time to be here and I hope I get to work with you in the future.
