LOUISE AGNEW / Photographer

I am a mum of three (Rosie, Paddy and George), a farmers wife, daughter and sister. My family is everything to me. I can’t go a day without a soy latte. Our home is always filled with good tunes, good food, good friends, good art and good wine.

Before working full time as a photographer I studied Psychology and Social Work at uni and worked as a children’s therapist for years. I helped people going through really difficult times, so photography allowed me to still experience the joyful sides of peoples lives. I think thats where my passion for capturing raw emotion and the natural connection between people began. I am in awe of the way children attach to their parents and love to capture the bond they have with the people they love.

Since becoming a mum, I have refined my style – it has helped me realise what memories I want my clients to keep. It’s the little things that remind us about the lives that we are living, the small quirks and the true characteristics in a person that should be documented for generations to enjoy after ours.

I am inspired by beautiful light, our gorgeous local scenery and most of all by your genuine personalities. I love a good chat and a laugh!
