maraschino photography is run by me, Kath Cherry
Writing an ‘about me’ page seems more than a little self-indulgent! But if I’m to be your newborn photographer or your maternity photographer you need to feel that you can trust me, which is going to be a lot easier if I tell you a little bit about me. So here goes, though obviously, feel free to contact me if you’ve a burning question I don’t answer! I’m a native Geordie, but I’ve lived in London for 17 years, so I think I get to call it home by now. My family consists of my husband, Mike and my two furry reprobates, Dylan (the white and tan one) and Maisy (the cheeky one). With no children of my own it’s not surprising that I think I have the best job in the world – cuddle babies all day and capture them at their most beautiful!
and yes, I am a fully-qualified master photographer
Having always been an enthusiastic, if sporadic photographer (holidays, mostly) I started my photography education as a bit of a whim in the 1990s, totally unprepared for the passion I would feel for it. As a result, I gave up my career as a marketer in The City of London to pursue photography full time. A fully-qualified member of the Master Photographers’ Association, my absolute favourite photographic subjects are pregnant ladies and newborn babies. That’s why I decided to specialise as a newborn photographer.
here’s the studio
I work primarily from my gorgeous studio in the leafy suburb of Brockley, South East London. It’s easy to get to from Greenwich and Blackheath. It’s just down the road from Honour Oak and Catford. Parking is free and unrestricted, and I’m happy to help you in from your car with your bags and baby, so don’t struggle on your own. Just give me a ring when you’re parked up and I’ll come and give you a hand.
outside work, I’m a bit of a tomboy
When I’m not behind a camera, I’m likely to be walking the dogs in the park, playing computer games that I know I’m too old for, or getting stuck in to a bit of DIY (to Mike’s dismay!)
