Be Inspired mini session | Feature by Kat Mervyn

Tell us a bit about your approach to the work you do, your time in the business and a few personal facts about you.

I actually come from a background in editorial photography, but when i had this little one 7 years ago, I started working for myself, mainly shooting weddings. I have two girls, three including my dog Rooster. I have a very laid back reactive approach to shooting weddings, and am more directive with my own children!

What about this session was most memorable?

I was just coming off a weekend of shooting weddings and couldn’t really be bothered bringing my camera out on our walk. (we walk our dog Rooster very morning) but at the last minute i just grabbed it and threw it in under the babes pram.

Were there any hurdles?

The only hurdle was making sure we could find a spot where we wouldn’t squash any flowers, also it was pretty damp so my daughter said I had to lie down too so she could take my photo too!

Your best photographer/session advice?

Always bring your camera, even when you aren’t getting paid! Shoot every day, and don’t be afraid to try things, if its not working, move on.

What gear was used to achieve these?

d750, and 35mm @1.4. I used the flip out screen to hold it high above my head, can’t do without that flip out screen!




Mother to Martha, wife to Daniel, the whole world to Rooster. I love food, cooking it, eating it, reading about it, watching it on TV, talking about it. I’m a dog person, and a horse person, I’m not that well travelled, I love home. I’m a HUGE Bob Seger fan. I’m one of the lucky ones who gets to do what she loves. I sometimes take that for granted.

I love photographs that show spirit, and connection.
