Before I get to know you, it may be helpful for you to get to know me too...

I became interested in documenting the power and vulnerability of women whilst studying for my photography degree at the wonderful Arts University Bournemouth and was lucky enough to have my work featured in London exhibitions, creative review and Elle uk.


After working in fashion photography and as a photography lecturer, I became burnt out, choosing to step away from photography to raise my own children Ryder and Matilda.


Life happened and the break lasted longer than I ever dreamed. Feeling that creative nudge, with the encouragement of my partner Andy I stated back up in 2020 and millieandbeau was born.


The progression into motherhood photography happened quite naturally. Being a part in helping mums to embrace this new life shift by seeing the beauty in themselves and their family bond has been the driving force behind my work and I love the powerful abilities a photograph has to make you feel back in that suspended moment in time. I want your images to be brimming with nostalgia, preserving your memories for years to come.


An open book, I am a quiet thinker who values niceness above everything, I consider music and gin to be life necessities.

You make think your mundane moments are boring, but I guarantee I will find them fascinating! I love all the stories my clients tell me, part of getting good images of you comes from me getting to know you, so the life stories always matter.

You can usually find me wearing some form of leopard print, spending my time adventuring in Wales or the Peak District with my handsome partner Andy and our dogs Indy & Luna or kid wrangling my two wildlings.
