CAROLINE BATES HEADSHOT

The one behind the camera!

I have spent the best part of my life (and had the best time) working in the fashion industry in New York and London. I have been designing beautiful printed artworks for ladies’ fashion and swimwear across the high street, in fact there’s a high chance you probably own one of my prints. It has been my life’s work to beautify and make everything look elegant and flattering (otherwise I would have been shown the door – no one wants to wear an ugly, unflattering print!) I have always enjoyed documenting my own life along the way by means of a camera but didn’t truly fall in love with photography until I was maternity leave and I invested in my first DSLR, and then of course I had time to perfect my skills.

 

I offer contemporary fine art newborn & family portraits, I capture those precious fleeting moments and create treasured artworks in a beautiful, subtle way. With my background in design, I pride myself on having an eye for detail and perfection and I love working with colour and texture in order to portray emotion and bring out the very best in my clients. I work with you in deciding on the most elegant colour theme for your portraits to add a personal, unique touch to your home.

 

I’m also a great lover of the light, I shape the light to create the most flattering portraits. Combined with my knowledge of posing you at the correct angles and superb editing skills, you will be delighted at how naturally beautiful you will look so there’s no need to be worried about being in front of the camera! I know, I’m the worst for it!!

Capturing the loving moments between you and your family are so important to me.

Capturing the loving moments between you and your family are so important to me.

Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.

Aaron Siskind

I love to photograph the sleepy phase of your newborn baby’s life so you can cherish the memory forevermore, your baby is only newborn for a few short weeks!
