I've been passionate about photography for many years and it feels like I've had a camera permanently attached to my hand since I was a teenager. I'm so excited to have turned a dream into reality by making it my career.

I have combined this love for photography with both a creative flair and my ability to make people feel relaxed in front of the camera.

Since launching Laura Darke Photography I have been given the opportunity to photograph everything from weddings to christenings, pregnancies to newborns, families to individual children. With each session I look to draw out my subjects' characters, their personalities - traits their families and friends all recognise but don't always see in others' pictures of them. Most important, I help even the most camera shy to feel relaxed.

My commitment to clients is to let them enjoy being photographed and to present a portfolio of images that they will treasure forever.
