Hi I'm Jane, the photographer behind the lens of Eden Photographics. My home is in a busy town here in beautiful Somerset perched on the border of Dorset so the very best of both counties. I live with my very patient hubby, not quite so patient Labrador, Wilbur and totally disinterested cat, Sammy. I am the proud Mum of two grown up daughters who are busy bringing up their own little families.
Photography has been part of my life for more years than I can say. Starting at the age of 9 or 10 I pestered the life out of my equally patient parents for my very first camera. I still have that little Kodak today but sadly the film is no longer available so it enjoys a happy retirement on my window sill.
In those early years my parents and siblings were my models while I learned the art of lighting and composition. Family groups gathered together or having to hold a pose so I could get that picture just right. This progressed over the years to my then boyfriend who became my husband and to this day he still sits for me while I test new equipment or lighting techniques. Our Labrador Wilbur however is less patient and is not interested in waiting for me to photograph a stunning sunset or sit for more than 5 seconds because he looked particularly cute that day!
To my family and husband I am eternally thankful for all their patience in helping me pursue my dream and become the photographer I am today.
