About Me

Behind the lens as a Saddleworth Family Photographer

Mum first.   

It was my first born, Joseph, who inspired me to leave my career as Head of Airline Marketing at Manchester Airport to follow my dreams and increase my happiness ten fold  by becoming a Saddleworth Family photographer.  Joseph and Victoria are my whole world.  Putting other Mum's first is also top of my agenda as being a Mum is the hardest but the best job in the world.  

Then I love a good meal around the table, chatting with my fabulous friends and family, a good life quote and chocolate.

Savvy marketer, growing entrepreneur and Oldham and Saddleworth family photographer second. 

Becoming an Oldham photographer is joyful.  Whether it's prospective clients say they love my bright and airy style, new clients telling me that they can't pick a favourite to frame or clever returning clients who come back for more, it's always fun.  At the core of my business model is affordable photography with all edited images received plus a sprinkling of inspiration to help you become a better photographer yourself. 

I love making crafts too so I sell a range of personalised scrabble frames too.  🙂 

Loves helping others grow. 

I'm a Trustee for a Multi Academy Trust and Chair of Governor for an Outstanding Special Needs School plus I'm a proud Alumni member of The Marketing Academy, which recognises top marketing talent.  

A contribution from each booking is given to my top charity, 52 Lives, a charity which looks to change someone's life every week of the year. It fits with my belief that people are good and if we work together we can change lives for the better. 

Always trying to be brave. 

If you truly want it, you can achieve your dreams.  Being a Mum and a business owner is hard but being brave, taking risks and never standing still is at the heart of everything I do.

What others say is much more important than what I say....

I absolutely adore the pictures that Bev has captured of my family. Before our sessions I hated having my photo taken so was rarely in pictures with our children, and had awful memories of being lined up in a photography studio for family photos. Now, I've got lots of pictures that I actually appear in (yay!), and they absolutely capture the personalities of my children and memories of the lovely days out together.  I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her as a Saddleworth family photographer to anyone, especially those with young children -we will definitely be using her again!!

Bev is an amazing Oldham photographer and very accommodating. We did a cake smash shoot with her for our little girls first birthday. She made Olivia feel really special and took the time with her to get that perfect photo (all of them were perfect!). I couldn't recommend Bev highly enough. We have amazing photos to cherish for a lifetime. Thanks Bev.

On two separate occasions Bev has photographed my eldest son, once at 11 months old and again at 18 months old. Taking photographs of an energetic toddler is no easy task, yet Bev did this with ease and the finished images really showcased our son's cheeky personality. From the first contact of enquiry to obtaining the final photographs, Bev puts you at ease with her down to earth approachable nature. We have booked Bev to photograph our youngest son's christening in December and cannot wait to see the images she takes of his special day. If you are looking for an Oldham photographer look no further than Inspired By Joseph!

Thank you so much to Bev for photographing our special wedding day. The photos truly are amazing! Bev has captured every little detail of our special day and of all our lovely family/friends. I can't thank Bev enough for the work she has done and for how lovely she was on the day. Bev - you made everything seem so effortless and natural, thank you so much. Could not recommend enough!

Bev gave us a fabulous experience we are usually shy when it comes to photos but she made us feel at ease the whole time. The whole experience was child centred with no rushing or pressure excellent choice for families! Bev had time to talk to the children and made them feel special. We would definitely use the service again xx
