Who Am I About Andrea Houghton
Born into a world of chemicals, darkrooms and printing machines, I am from a photographic family. I joined the family business on leaving school at sixteen and shot my first wedding just one year later. Since then, I have never looked back and went on to become a qualified member of the Master Photographers Association for over 30 years. I now specialise in new born art and children's fantasy images.
"In the digital age, where anyone with an iPhone and a Facebook page can market himself or herself as a photographer, it is important to find a photographer that you can trust to capture your memories. After all, those precious moments disappear in a flash."
The chemistry and dark rooms have long gone, replaced by computers and digital processing, but it's all still in my blood. Specialising in studio portraits, creating images is what I do; from bumps to babys, cake smash, birthdays, family occasions, pre-wedding shoots for him or her.
This is not a hobby, it's my life. Professional photography is about finding out what you, the customer, really want, creating it for you and presenting you with a finished product or album to treasure.
