Hey, I’m Siobhan! I'm a portrait and family photographer, writer and discoverer of beauty with a promiscuous appetite for the world around me. I take pictures to catch reality off guard, to see the in-between and to capture the humanity of the moment. Emotion, movement and light all inspire my work but above it all I crave connection and a deeper meaning for everything I do.
I live in Hitchin, Hertfordshire where I am re-wilding from too many years spent in the city. We just sorta grew apart, London and I. When you are raised in the North Devon hills, it's only a matter of time before the mossy hands of the countryside pull you in. Now I am trying to build a life and a home there with my family that aligns as closely as possible with my values. Slow, simple, kind and more in tune with nature.
I believe that beauty doesn’t come from perfection. It comes from vulnerability, from showing up, being yourself and loving yourself just as you are. You don’t have to change anything about yourself to be worthy of being photographed, and certainly not before you’re worthy of self love and self acceptance.
I really don't like wearing shoes, so I'll kick them off the first chance I get. To me, dirty feet are a sign of pretty great day. I like my food spicy, my coffee black, my boots muddy and my music with the roots still on.
