Photography Style

Beautiful, natural family and event photography

My images have a feminine and natural style, focusing on bringing out the beauty of the person, the atmosphere of an event or that special moment. I shoot in a reportage way, meaning the pictures are never over-staged and over-posed.

About Jemma

In all that I photograph I like to tell a story…

Whether that be of the person or the event, and there is a real sense of joy when I hand over the final images to a happy client.

I have been photographing people and events professionally for over 10 years, capturing those special moments in a laid back and relaxed way. Every job is unique and I find that I am able to get on well with everyone, from the 80 year old in the room right down to the two year old!

Before starting Pearl Pictures, I was, and still am, a commercial photographer, shooting food, interiors and still life as Jemma Watts Photography. As far back as I can remember I was always the one with the camera, photographing friends and family, creating albums and prints for memories. In 2009 I decided to set up a second photography company and Pearl Pictures was established for people and event photography.

During my long career I have been commissioned to photograph a huge variety of events: birthdays, graduations, the school prom; weddings here in the UK and worldwide; business product launches, talks, company parties; and of course families and children. Some of my clients ask me to come back year on year to capture the growing family!
