Hi, I’m Calli, welcome to Evelyn Florence photography (Above- My family and I)
I have always been a creative person but I do not feel that I found my true self until I started to photograph people. Taking photographs is not my passion, its photographing people that is. I come from a large, close and down to earth family, which inspires me to capture other people’s relations, connections and emotions. My Nan “Evelyn” passed down her love for family life encouraging us to treasure our loved ones. Having the honour of capturing the most important people in other people’s lives and preserving their special memories makes me feel like the most privileged person in the world! For the first time in my life I can say out loud “I LOVE MY JOB”.
I am both a studio and location photographer based in Drayton, Portsmouth, who uses both natural and flash lighting. As well as a studio, I have a professional portable set up which enables me to capture your magical moments in the comfort of your own home.
When shooting out doors I use natural and ambient lighting as much as possible. I prefer to shoot late afternoon or early morning due to the position of the sun, unless it’s overcast I’ll shoot any time in the day! I love to shoot in rain to (not too heavy though) there’s nothing better than photographing children in their wellington boots splashing in the puddles.
I aim to provide a personal service…to get to know you, so that I can produce heart-warming pieces of art for you to be proud to hang in your home and to pass down to future generations.
While running my business I also currently shoot stock photography for Getty Images and have a long running contract with a leading Boudoir Company. I also hold a Licentiateship with The Royal Photographic Society.
When not shooting I can be found laughing, spending time with my crazy family and fabulous friends. I am scared of wasps (they are just so fast), I love to cook homemade meals and take long walks with my dog “Woody” oh and I can also frequently be found at car boot sales! I have a fascination for collecting vintage clothing and photographic props! My cellar is like Aladdin’s cave!
My ambition is to continually keep on improving my creative and photographic skills, improve my business on a day to day basis and of course to one day build a little family of my own. Some day I would also like to learn a second language but that can wait for now.
Hope to here from you soon!
