HI - I'M SHELL
I'm 39 and a bit, living in beautiful Norfolk with my partner of almost 19 years - Andrew and my working cocker spaniel, Effie who is 2. We love walking holidays, especially in Jersey - Channel Islands, which has become our second home the last few years. When I'm not on a walking holiday, you will find me on a beach somewhere hot. My Stepson and his girlfriend moved to Wales a few years ago so we visit Wales a couple of times a year and are slowly falling in love with it there.
Otherwise, I'm pretty much a home bird. I love our home here on the Norfolk/ Cambridgeshire border and we are always doing some sort of project on the house.
We are currently in the middle of converting a Nissan Primestar van into a camper so we can visit some more of the UK over the next few years. We are really enjoying the build and we haven't argued much... yet!
I love a boxset marathon and always happy to receive suggestions of great shows. Self-confessed Buffy The Vampire Slayer super fan! My inner 15 year old still loves the Backstreet Boys and I may or may not sing along to Busted on full volume on my way to weddings... Don't judge me.
Being at the beach and being outdoors. I think this shows through my work, as I seem to attract like-minded couples. So you will see lots of beach and woodland shoots on my social media pages, as this is where I tend to gravitate towards. I love the space of being outside and the everchanging light. Rain doesn't even worry me or put me off.
HOW I STARTED
I was bought my first camera in 2013 & I had no idea where it would lead. Over the years I have tried many types of photography but my true love lies with couples & weddings. I really try to capture the essence of who you are as a couple and document the day as it happens.
So why Rose? Rose was my late nan, who I never got to know but I have a load of photos of her so it seemed appropriate to use her name when thinking of my business. And yes people call me Rose all the time but that's ok!
