Approach

From my experience modeling for my father's photography master-classes, I have gained a unique perspective as a photographer, and an empathy for the subjects of my own portraits.

As a professional female photographer I feel naturally sympathetic to romance and beauty. My modern and imaginative style demonstrates classical posing and good composition at its core, with a sharp eye for the little details, a fleeting glance or a shared smile.

My dad once said to me I have the one thing you can't teach, and that is the natural ability to communicate well with people and make them feel at ease.

I pride myself on good service, quality and value for money. I use the best equipment and resources available to me, and strive to reflect your taste and personality in my images, prints, albums and presentation DVDs.

Thank you for visiting my website.

I am an award winning professional photographer based in Westport, County Mayo on the west coast of Ireland. Originally from London, I have settled in Ireland after living in County Mayo since 2000, and enjoy applying my skills as a photographer to record the natural beauty of the local landscape, and to capture the character of the local people in my portraits.

I grew up in the photography business and was trained by my late father, Robert Glover, a successful wedding and portrait photographer and also the Chairman of the Qualifications & Admissions Board of the British Institute of Professional Photography.

As a young girl I initially helped in the studio and dark room of my father's photography business, and later assisted him with location shoots at weddings and the day to day running of the studio. Now that I am a full time professional photographer myself I feel that this early introduction and insight of the photography business has proved invaluable.

In 2015 I joined up with Kerstin Hellmann, a professional landscape photographer, and created The Photo Hub, a studio and photo gallery at The Quay in Westport.
