I was totally enamoured by the vivid depictions of pure emotion captured in her still but yet full-of-life photography. Her ability to capture and retell a wonderful story with her camera lenses is truly a wonderful gift. Photography is a calling and Charlie has definitely been called to do this.
“My work is all about capturing the milestones of life beautifully, simplistically and authentically. My images reflect my shooting style; light, relaxed and uncomplicated. I adore negative space and all the shades of white. More than anything I want to capture connection. So the big moments of life are where I want to be, camera in hand and delivering these precious moments back to my clients for them to keep. A legacy for their families to cherish forever”- Charlie Alexander ( Owner of Farlie Photography)
