Louise is a professional photographer based in Kendal, Cumbria.    


Hello! I’m Louise, a professional photographer specialising in wedding photography and outdoor family & pet portraiture in the Lake District and beyond.


I’d definitely describe myself as a country girl; I love my home in the countryside and all it's delights throughout the seasons! From snow capped Howgill fells to spring lambs leaping in the fields, to soaking in the summer sunshine.


When I realised photography was what I wanted to do in life, around the time I was in sixth form, I learnt various skills myself as well as learning the industry through university. I graduated with a first class BA (Hons) degree in photography from Blackpool and the Fylde College in 2014. It’s a good foundation to the photographer I am today, along with each individual shoot and weddings that I do, each inform the next.



When I’m not photographing, I love spending my time walking in ‘The Lake District’ (being on my doorstep!), playing table tennis competitively in the local Kendal & District League, also badminton and attending agricultural shows in the summer. 

Louise currently has greetings cards  to purchase in the gift shop at Kitridding Farmshop (Old Town, near Kirkby Lonsdale in Cumbria) which is updated throughout the year. Louise also has a variety of framed photographs up at Fix Coffee House, (New Street, Carnforth) which are also for sale.

Louise has produced 3 photo books which are for sale (see below) if you would like to display these in a cafe, shop or buy one please email for more info. Louise also attends many winter craft fairs each year to promote and sell her photography.
