ABOUT US

The Mission

"As a child I was dragged around the country for ‘walks’ by my parents. I moaned and never wanted to actually leave the important social gathering in the alley behind my parents home, or the 'draw' computer game draw on my dad’s borrowed Acorn computer, but once I was out, I was always tearing ahead and desperate to see the views, time was no longer relevant on those walks, I have no idea how long they lasted, all I know is that afterwards my little sister would be congratulated for having walked 7 miles, and both of us would end up in a country pub with a packet of Smith’s salt and vinegar crisps and a half pint of coke. This is what family life looked like to me, a mess of knitwear, my mum carrying my sister on her hip, my dad talking to me about the world, and me going between both parents, never wanting one to be left alone too long, or the other to think I favoured one. My sister and I rarely bickered, but on these walks we were in a world of our own, we were field mice, or squirrels or orphans. I guess this was as close to mindfulness as life could get because while we were there we didn’t think about our alley way, or our computer, or our cuddly toys. We were just there being a family. I don’t think I felt like that again as an adult until I picked up a camera and got lost in the great British countryside again. And it was splendid, becoming a photographer, without a studio meant that I had to pay attention to nature, to light, to respect the elements and work with and around them. What I wanted was an honest portrayal of the beautiful moments of my childhood and what I believe should be an entitlement of every child. Connection. Connection with nature and connection between the family. Over the last six years Dimples and Daisies has evolved, and transfigured and grown and shrunk and at times deviated from its mission, but now it is back where it was when it first came to be. The photos are of course much improved, but the mission is where it began. Connection. Honest, wholesome, relaxed connection. To those of you who have watched the journey of this company, you will never know what your support has meant to me, forever and ever, my team and I thank you. To those of you who have recently stumbled upon it, please know that for the 1000s of families we have shot, each one of them is special to us and each one has taught us how to listen, to laugh and to always want to be better. We plan to never stop growing because we believe that every child should have moments like these to look back on, and that these photos are not just images, but moments of childhood magic that one day will be recalled by looking back at photos. Of their arms round our necks, their chubby hands in ours and the way that they looked up at us and love poured out of everyones eyes."

CHRISTY EVANS

creative director & photographer

"I’ve worked at Dimples and Daisies since March ‘17 and I’ve never felt more at home. I love everything that Dimples and Liberty stand for, from capturing connection, joy & emotion, to empowering & uplifting. Whether I’m outdoors photographing children running through the lavender field with the wind in their hair or cosy in the studio capturing a new little life, there is never a moment that I don’t enjoy. My goal as your photographer isn’t about just taking a photo, but creating timeless imagery that evokes emotion and captures your family bond, freezing those precious days before they all too quickly become just memories."

 

Christy is our main photographer and artist and believes in capturing the raw emotion and bond between family and loved ones. She can be found at every Dimples and Daisies photoshoot. With only the faintest of direction, she works by getting to know your family and little ones, to understand all those tiny actions they do; the way they fiddle with their hair, the real smiles, the looks shared between siblings... Having trained with some of the best in the business, her skill in capturing the real is phenomenal and she has a genuine and true passion for all the work she does.

HOLLY RAMEJKIS

host & facilitator

"What I love about Dimples is that we always capture the pure love between family, the special moments and the bonds between children and parents. Letting children experience nature, taking them to locations they have never been before. We make memories that last a lifetime."

Holly can be found at photoshoots, there to make the kids giggle, the parents relaxed and to ensure every moment of your Dimples experience is unforgettable. Once the images have been finished, she'll invite you back for your viewing. Holding your hand throughout, she'll be there to help you choose your wonderful gallery, present to you a stunning video and help explain all the amazing ways to print your new photographs.

photographer

"My childhood was filled with fantasy and magic. Living in a yurt amidst a bluebell wood, playing pirates in a lake with my Dad, climbing trees and eating picnics on the branches... Every memory, every moment, was an adventure. When I started working at Dimples, I realised that magic is still here, for every child that walks through our door is shown the world I remember so clearly, one where every bluebell holds a fairie, every tree is the tallest in the world, and every river is filled with magic and mermaids. This isn't just another photography company, it is the entrance to the magical world where a child's imagination and adventurous heart is free to roam and play."

Aurora is one of our photographers, and will always bring an experience full of life and play for your little ones. She can also be found filming our special new videos for the Storytelling & Sunset Sessions, which you can see here.
