About Me - Lorraine Lucas Photography

Hello, I'm Lorraine Lucas, thank you for visiting my site.  I'm a photographer of people, pets and occasionally, places.  I'm based in St Nicholas At Wade in Thanet, Kent.

About Me

I've always had a passion for photography and after years of shooting for pleasure, I've been encouraged to venture forth and start my own portrait business. I can attest to the fact that 'it's in the genes'... because after taking portraits of family and friends, babies, children, pets, musicians and style gurus for decades,  I recently discovered that my great, great grandfather was the famous celebrity portrait photographer Napoleon Sarony.  My feet just aren't big enough to fill such giant shoes, but I like to think that a touch of his talent and creative spirit managed to find its way into my bones.   I enjoy photographing people of every age, shape and gender in all sorts of situations and places, but I have to confess that I particularly love working with babies and  children.   Whoever I'm photographing, my favourite shots are usually the ones between the poses, those authentic moments that exemplify a subject's uniqueness; a child lost in imaginings,  unstudied moments of laughter, gravity or vulnerability.   I work from my small home studio, or on location - be that at a client's home, office or out and about.
