I’m a natural light maternity, newborn and family photographer based in Surrey. I love taking photographs, capturing real moments, glimpses of  ‘that time when’ and all the delicious little details that surround it and make it a trigger for all those memories to flood back in years to come.

I’ve been a photographer in my heart forever. The magic of light and the way that it can influence what we see has fascinated and enchanted me for as long as I can remember. 10 years ago, I decided I needed to learn how to capture it and conduct it properly, and started to learn photography. I didn’t choose my first course especially well, it was technically heavy, which didn’t sit easily with my creative mind, and taking control of the camera seemed overly complex and difficult to master, but I was persistent and sought more information and practiced endlessly until it all started to fall in to place.

In 2010 my husband and our then 20 month old daughter took a year to travel around the world. I took the opportunity to study for a photography diploma while I had the chance to practice endlessly and really get to grips with how to do what I wanted to do with the camera. I learned how to capture the image that I imagined, and became more and more pleased with and proud of the images that I was producing.  In 2013 we moved to California and I set up my photography business Suzi Bowles Photography. When we moved back to Surrey in 2014, I brought my photography business with me, and 2015 also saw the start of A Happy Capture workshops – an opportunity to share that knowledge and passion for making fantastic photographs with others, and to explain photography in a way that is easy to understand.
