Hello, I’m Naomi and welcome to Lush Imaging 🙂
I’m a professional photographer specialising in wedding photography and food photography (my favourite things!). I live just out of Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, with my very tolerant husband James, and my partner in crime cat Roxy (aka roximus prime), but my work takes me all around the country and on occasions, around the world.
I truly believe this is the best.job.ever. Like, ever! It’s taken a lot of years in training, education and on the job, but to do this full time, I feel so incredibly lucky.
I gained a First Class Honours Degree in Editorial and Advertising Photography and was shortlisted for the Nikon Discovery Award after moving back to Gloucestershire. I then spent about 7yrs working for a very busy, international family portrait studio specialising in ‘New Generation Portraiture’. Very excitingly whilst there, my work was recognised within the portrait industry internationally, in their Photography Awards 2013 and more excitingly, I’ve just been shortlisted in the South West region, for Best Wedding Photographer, by The Wedding Industry Awards. I’m also privileged to be part of South West Selective, a handpicked group of some awesome talent in the South West.
However, none of this is as much of an honour as being asked to be part of someones big day. Just being married myself, I truly know how important those images are…and how much I don’t like being front of the camera!
When I’m not with a camera in hand, you’ll either find me on a sports field somewhere or with James, slowly destroying our house (DIY I think they call it) or trying to work out how we can both retire soon!
If you have any questions at all, please do contact at any time.
