About Me

Lara Jacques Photography was born in 2013 after the birth of my first son, Benjamin where I used this new venture as an escape from nappies and baby talk, doing something for myself and enjoying every second of having a camera in my hand. This hasn't changed and I am still as obsessed with photography as I have ever been, and have so many fond memories of all the couples, families, individuals and pets that I have met on my journey.

I am now a mother of two boys so photography is my escape from a crazy life! Some people do yoga to relax; I do photography and I highly recommend it. It is just the most rewarding job ever. It also offers a good dose of adrenaline too (an homage to my days as a police officer)!

Like so many people I hate being in front of a camera and this photo is one of very few that we have of us as a family but it will hopefully give you reassurance that I completely understand the fear you may currently have about being photographed. My job is to put you at ease so you enjoy the experience, which we will! I just wish I could take my own advice!

Every photographer is different; we all like to do things in a slightly different way, and have our own 'style' and working practices and this is what should make your journey to finding your ideal photographer so exciting.

I hope you like what you see!

She stayed calm throughout the day and was very helpful (she helped with balloons in the morning!). She kept stating that it is our day and we need to enjoy i"
