I live in Maidenhead (or the metropolis) as I like to call it. It’s a bit different to living in New York or London (which I’ve done) but being here with my other half and my two year old daughter is great – happy times.
Becoming a mum and with friends and family having children, I’ve been in popular demand for portraits again so it seemed natural to pick up the ‘proper’ camera again and get back to my roots as a photographer.
Most days you’ll see me snapping away with my iPhone or writing things for my blog . 'maidenhead mum’
I’m a massive Gavin and Stacey fan and dragged my partner and his dad to Barry Island on a cold Easter bank holiday just so we could have a coffee from Marco’s. I live in hope of a fourth series (and get a bit emotional when I watch the old episodes)
I have a pair of shiny black Dr Martin boots (and am old enough to have had a green pair the first time round) The best thing about them is that people stop me in the street and tell me all about their “Doc Boot Story” in a misty eyed way. Which is highly entertaining.
And of course not forgetting that all important subject: photography. It’s always been something I’ve enjoyed and I’ve been pretty lucky to be able to have made it a full time job. After 5 years of portraits I took a break from portrait photography and worked for Benefit Cosmetics (for the joy of the freebies!) and for Three Mobile (for the joy of the gadgets!).
If you're anything like me, you like to read what other people have to say before committing to things. Especially when it comes to parting with money for something a little out of the ordinary like a photo shoot. So to make things easier for you I've included some comments from previous colleagues and clients.
"My daughter simply hates having her photo taken but Jodie has such a way with the kids that she makes the whole thing into a game - my daughter ended up competing to have her photo taken (unheard of!) which resulted in beautiful , natural shots filled with energy."
"Having worked with Jodie for a number of years, I was always impressed by her boundless energy and always been great with clients, and as such, her photos are always natural and stunning".
"Jodie has a fabulous style both in photography and when relaxing even the most nervous of clients, this is clear and evident in her photos which reflect the personality and characters of individuals rather than fitting a corporate brief. She has such a lovely manner and was often remembered fondly as the 'Barbie' photographer simply due to her love of all things pink! Her creations are so distinctive that she has often photographed my 2 children to document their personal growth and passions at the time. You won't just have a fun photo shoot, I know from experience, you will have memories of a great afternoon of fun and giggles too. Have a fabulous time with Jodie and her creativity."
