READ THEIR STORIES
Coming from a Fine Arts background, Lorna originally picked up a camera to make posters for an exhibition she was in. Struck by the instant results of digital photography and – more so – the rooted connection to others, taking portraits offered, she soon made this her primary focus…
For 10 years she has worked on editorial portraits, lifestyle & documentary photography, and cannot believe she gets paid to ‘observe others’, when people watching is her favourite pastime!
Seeing my first portrait in print in The Sunday Times.
I’m obsessed with ‘the details’. Noticing the sore bit on somebody’s ankles when their shoes fit too tightly. Although I don’t necessarily capture these specifics, they feed into my impression of a person and help me connect with them on a deeper level.
ARTIST & DESIGNER

At heart I think I’m a seeker and this questioning keeps me curious to learn and explore. I think it helps my artistic practice, but also keeps me adaptive and creative in my commercial work too. I’m interested in deep thinking and creative ideas, as well as visual aesthetics.
VIBRANT ACCOUNTANCY LIMITED
We know our numbers, that’s for sure, but we do things differently, taking out the stuffiness and the suits and bringing in business advice and a growth mindset. We want to dive into your business, understand what makes you tick, and get to know you, to create a strong partnership. We want to be an arm around your shoulder; supporting, guiding, comforting, pushing, smiling and celebrating every success along the way. Vibrant was born from our drive to help people exceed their goals. Of course, we’ll help you understand your numbers, but fundamentally, we want to help you build the business you’ve dreamed of owning.
The icing on the cake was when we won the ‘New Firm of the Year Award’ at the Accounting Excellence Awards in London in October 2021. The biggest career highlight has been working with some exceptional businesses, who have not just grown, but flourished over the years we have worked together with them. We love to see entrepreneurs getting where they want to be, whatever their starting point.
We’re good at what we do, but the main thing is, we’re human! We build a partnership approach and really get to know our clients, aiming to be an arm around your shoulder, and become part of your business.
