I'm Lisa, a Storytelling Photographer who has spent most of my life capturing the world around me through the lens of my camera.
Let me share a little about myself: I was born and raised in Rome, Italy, the single child of a charming Italian man and a gentle English woman. With the whimsical British landscapes and the passionate Italian way of living running through my veins, it was inevitable that I would become a hopeless romantic and a dedicated Storytelling Photographer.
For over a decade, the UK has been my home, most recently moved at the foot of the Cotswolds hills. Here, I live with my two loves - Felix, my husband, and Henry, our beloved cat.
I thrive on stories, especially the heart-warming and enchanting ones of people finding love in this crazy world. I've always felt strongly about preserving memory and history, particularly when it comes to everyday life and families coming together, creating new ones.
As a Storytelling Photographer, I combine my passion for stories with the art of photography. I am dedicated to capturing all those special life milestones, ensuring that those I encounter along the way never forget them. We don't always have the privilege of knowing where we come from, but we can make sure that legacy starts with us, right?!
My job is to make those moments tangible so they are not lost in time. I want them to be relived when the memories get fuzzy and shared with those you love - both now and in the future.
Every special day I photograph unfolds naturally, allowing life to take its course.
Occasionally, I may also guide a few special naturally posed shots, but don't worry, I'll show you how!
It's a privilege for me to experience the love, the tears, the cheeky smiles, and the knowing looks. I capture them all to tell your unique story in all of its facets.
Anyway, now that the deep stuff is out of the way, here are some more practical tid-bits that may help you connect with me a little more...
I've been a city girl most of my life but truly feel like I belong among wildflowers and woodland trees
I am a lover of art in most of its forms, from music to architecture and anything in between - anything creative and beautiful in the world, really
I love reading and when I get lost in a story I obsess over it! My favourite genres are YA fantasy and period romance novels - love stories are always on my mind
I am extremely loving and maternal and often put others' needs before my own, a true helper for better or for worse
My most annoying trait (according to my husband) is being the most creative late at night - no matter how much I try, creativity is hard to stop once it's flowing!
now, have you ever wondered...
You might know it as the word for the '&' symbol.
But to me it means much more.
It's part of MY LOVE STORY and where it all started.
It was the beginning of autumn, with a cool breeze in the air and crunchy leaves under foot. It was the early days of our relationship, and Felix and I, to pass the time, had been talking about the AMPERSAND and all it's fun facts
(random? yes... super geeky? I'm with you!).
It was the strangest, most peaceful moment and I felt that urge to say
“I love you” for the first time, but as the impulse took me I called out his name. He looked back and....I froze.
All I could say was: “Ampersand” in the quietest voice.
As I said it, I wasn’t sure that was what I meant to say, but when I did, he smiled with a look of understanding.
With the most loving tone and look in his eyes he said...
"Ampersand you too"
That was the moment in which that little word held so much more than it used to.
So much joy, kindness, importance, promise, and most of all, LOVE.

That's what AMPERSAND means to me.
It means being together.
It’s the one thing that connects two entities to be one.
It’s the love between You & Me. It’s the thing that creates an Us.
This is what I strive to infuse in my photography and your documented memories.
It's that feeling of love, happiness and tenderness found between every blink of an eye and every skipped heartbeat.
That is when your true emotions shine, and the moments and feelings that persist through time.
This is my love story and I can't wait to hear yours!
Her photos are of an impeccable standard, and she was also fantastic with our two daughter as well. She included them in the shoot and was particularly brilliant with our oldest who was taking snaps on my phone alongside Lisa! Would 100% recommend to anyone looking for a top quality, but down to earth photographer❤️
