My first camera was a Zenit EM, a Russian built-like-a-tank heavyweight 35mm SLR, gifted to me by my dad.
Studying at the Kent college of Art and Design and then onto Ravensbourne University as a mature student is where photography really got into my bloodstream! Many happy hours were spent in the darkroom, mastering the art of developing my reels of film and then printing the chosen negatives.
After 17 years building a career in sales and business development within the aerospace and defence industry, I decided to focus on building my own business in commercial photography; combining my sales experience, business development skills and industry knowledge with my passion for photography.
My love of the outdoors drew me towards trying to capture stunning landscapes often getting up at unsociable hours to make my way to a carefully researched location. Chasing misty mornings and red skies has taken me to beautiful places all over the world that I would never have found if it weren’t for my love of photography. Watching the sun rise is something I’ll never tire of.
I am a member of the Guild of Professional Photographers as well as the Association of Photographers. My images have won awards at National level and I have had my work published in national publications as well as industry-specific journals.
I enjoy helping businesses and entrepreneurs to grow by working with them to create a portfolio of strong, bespoke images that are unique to them.
When I’m not out with my camera, I’m a mum and step-mum to 3 awesome young men and two rescue dogs. I consider myself one of the lucky few to find and marry my best friend and soulmate.

Emma took some beautiful pictures of me at work in my studio. She was able to make me feel totally comfortable and at ease, which in turn made the pictures very natural. The technology is so advanced and Emma's mastered the ability to direct and choreograph a shoot without having to be there, which is so important during these times. I would so recommend Emma to anyone wanting to achieve professional images. The process was really enjoyable!
I was long overdue a new head shot for professional use but a studio session was not possible due to covid restrictions. I came across PixelLit offering remote photography sessions. The process was so simple and Emma made it fun. I am so pleased with the finished images they are just perfect. Hazel Eastlake- Petit Digital
Remote Photoshoot Amazing results from a remote photo shoot. Even more surprising given there was no professional lighting and we were using my mobile phone. It was a relaxing experience with Emma capturing my personality and directing me, without it feeling intrusive at all. Would highly recommend for anyone seeking a professional profile picture for editorial or LinkedIn, as well as personal images.
PixelLit Photography were professional, friendly and provided a turn-key service. They worked closely with the models provided by the UK Department for International Trade Defence and Security Organisation Export Team and completed a site survey prior to the photoshoot. The survey enabled the selection of the best locations that matched the story board concepts and optimised the timescales on the day of the photoshoot. The resulting photographs focussed on our products in operational context and provided excellent image impact required for DTC’s on-line marketing campaign. Their professionalism made the whole process smooth and easy from a client’s point of view. Dr Marcus Penny Solutions Director (DTC)
PixelLit Photography were professional, friendly and responsive to our requirements from the offset. They worked closely with us to deliver our brief, far exceeding our expectations. During the extended shoot they worked with our team, the location manager and the models to get the very best out of every location and opportunity, to deliver consistently great work. Their eye for subject, lighting and composition is matched by their technical expertise and their post-production and after sales service is second to none. Craig Taylor Director of Marketing Communications (D & A Excelitas QioptiQ)
Extremely professional - would highly recommend. Understood my brief - delivered to perfection - captured the essence of what I do. Made me feel at ease for my own photoshoot (something I had never done before) but Emma really made me feel at ease. Emma knows her stuff and delivers an extremely professional service.

I needed some personal images for my first ever website and I am delighted that I found Emma. I was uncharacteristically nervous and I really didn’t have much of a clue of what I wanted or needed. Emma met me at the location and immediately put me at ease. Her ideas worked perfectly and her attention to detail is outstanding. In short, I’m delighted with the photos Emma shot of me for my site
