Hello, my name is Jamie

Chef by Trade, Photographer by Passion

"Becoming a father has changed my world, I can not stop taking photos of my little guy as he grows. Photography has always been a passion of mine and since becoming a father all I want to do is freeze time and savour the beautiful moments I have with my son, or the adorable moments my wife has with him."

"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything."

—Aaron Siskind

The story of a Photographer


Photography to me is more then just taking photos. It's about capturing the essence of a precious moment and telling a story long after the moment has passed. From a young age I've loved to capture picturesque moments, whether they be of people, places, wildlife or monuments. I've returned to photography after taking a long break to complete training to become a chef. I decided a few years ago to revisit photography. I won't lie and say I am the greatest photographer but I have worked hard to gain the knowledge and experience that I have to bring to you images of beautiful moments captured for all time.

I have always lived by the rule "Family above all else," which is why I created Simmons Memorable Moments, to capture the special moments in a Family's life. Specialising in Couples portraits, Maternity, Newborn and Family Photography to capture every special moment as it happens.

If there is anything that you wish to keep forever, like when you graduate, the moment you propose or the moment your newborn baby comes into this world, I would like to help you capture it, frame it and keep it for years to come.

"Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures."
