I'm Gemma, creative Lifestyle Photographer at Folk + Kin and I live on the beautiful Cumbrian coast with my husband and three children. I adore creating imagery and film, finding deep connections  and inspiration through my love of nature and the arts.

My children are at the very heart of my work. We love exploring and learning

through the natural world. I'm hugely inspired by the coast and the ever changing elements. I would describe my style as romantic, emotive and nostalgic.

I take commercial imagery and film for small, creative businesses. I have collaborated with many brands over the years, helping to portray their story through honest, natural photography. I love working with business owners, they're always incredibly passionate and dedicated to their craft and I adore being able to create a part of their special journey with storytelling imagery.

“Gemma is absolutely amazing to work with. Not only does she take truly beautiful photos for my small business she has also become a lovely friend. We work together to create a mood board for each season and she styles my products in completely the most perfect way”

I have always admired Gemma's work so when I asked her to help me with some images for my new website I knew they were going to be absolutely beautiful. 
Her passion, creativity and attention to detail shines through and we shared a lovely morning together creating some truly gorgeous images. They were just what I wanted and she totally understood how I wanted to portray my small business. 
A lovely, kind and considerate person to work with. I'm looking forward to working with Gemma again in the future

From the first time I came across Gemma’s pictures I was blown away.  I could not believe it when she agreed to come to my house and take some pictures of my children. She was so great with my boys and produced the most incredible pictures of them I have ever seen, they brought me to tears.

 I then pestered Gemma to take pictures of my cakes for my new business and luckily for me she agreed again.  I don’t even know how to describe the confidence it gave me to have someone like Gemma believe in me and produce the most incredible start to my business through photography. She somehow managed to translate exactly what I wanted, even though I couldn’t even describe it. I trusted her 100% and it paid off.

Gemma is a very special person. She is kind, generous, incredibly talented and very funny. I love working with her and even saying that feels like a real privilege.
