LEANNE PUNSHON PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER

"I started my own photography career as a wedding photographer in 2002. After just one month as a Photography student (New York Institute of Photography), I captured my first wedding - and I loved every moment."

I was born in a small suburb called Alberton South of Johannesburg South Africa, and grew up with the love for dancing and art and spent many hours growing a passion for the Arts. I knew that this was the direction for me to go in.

As a painting has light and shadow, colours and mood - so does a Photograph. As the Photographer I had the opportunity to experiment with a medium that I had never used before and that was exciting for me ... I wanted to learn more!

I started my own photography career as a wedding photographer in 2002. After just one month as a Photography student (New York Institute of Photography), I captured my first wedding - and I loved every moment. I found the wedding scene to be very busy and challenging, but it taught me a lot about working with people. How to get the best out of them, as well as how to capture those precious, natural moments. I have since done many different types of photography, including corporate, sports, food and events. I have enjoyed all of it, but I have found that my true passion lies in photographing children and families. My grandad “Oupa Jack” who will be one century old this year (2018) used to be a Photographer, so Photography seems to be in my genes. I have a story that I tell kids when taking their photo. I tell them to look deep into my lens and they might see the little bird that lives inside my camera.

When I decided to change the name of my business, from Leanne Punshon Photography, I wanted something that encompassed the style of photography that I love. Little Bird Photography does exactly that. What’s more, when my mom heard the name, she said: “Oh yes that’s what Oupa Jack used to say when he took photos of kids!” Photography and “little bird” are a part of who I am and I’m so grateful to have found a genre that is exciting, honest, free and playful - just as children are.

My family and I spent a few years in the beautiful coastal town of Port Elizabeth, South Africa before moving to Gloucestershire England in the in the heart of the Cotswolds. I now operate from here and enjoy all types of Photography.
