Do you want your photos to show your kids real personalities? That's my number 1 aim for my family photography.

Family photography is close to my heart as I have a house full of photos from many photo shoots we have had over the years.  If, like me, it’s those photos of piggy backs, races, tickles and laughter that you love more than anything I’d love to hear from you. I thoroughly understand that all children are different; motivated and captivated in different ways and by different things.  That’s what makes my family photography different.  I focus on the personalities within the family and let you freely express themselves without having to pose for the camera.

Family photo shoots starting at £195 (including 5 digital images)

“You have captured their personalities just brilliantly”

I have a mixture of favourite locations that I like to use as a backdrop for my sessions, however they really can take place anywhere.  I like to use the best light possible so always suggest that we do these when the sun is low, usually a couple of hours before sunset or first thing in the morning. If you have any favourite locations or somewhere that means something special to you as a family I am happy to meet you there so long as it’s allowed.

Family photo shoots usually take 1 hour – sometimes more.  Before your session I will figure out the best spots for us to visit within our location and I will follow you as you play, chase, tickle, cuddle.  The shots are 90% unposed, with me guiding you into the best light rather than forcing you to stand certain ways. The idea is to feel relaxed and not conscious of a camera being in your face.

Family photography In the comfort of your home

‘Oh wow the photos are simply wonderful”

I am also happy to take photos within your home if the light is good enough, either before an outdoor session or instead of.  Here I tend to watch the kids play, get you all to relax on the bed or sofa and capture life as a family as it happens.  I don’t bring lots of equipment it is just my camera and I.

You just need to make sure that there is enough light and space in at least two rooms so that I can work and capture images from a variety of angles.

“I am shocked at how many wonderful photos you have captured”

After your session the wait for your gallery is usually around 2 weeks, and as I know you will be desperate to see some before then I normally share one or two on my Facebook or Instagram page as a preview.  You will receive a gallery of watermarked images (black and white and colour versions of each) to look at and then choose your favourites and which additional packages you may like.  You will receive a black and white and colour version of each image that is included in the gallery and then if you choose it.  This is all done within the comfort of your own home, so no added pressure from me.

Post photo shoot: A choice of packages to suit your budget and style

All of my session fee’s include 5 images to start with.  I also offer extra digital packages as well as beautiful products to make the most of the images you buy and ensure they don’t end up sat in a drawer.  During your session I will show you the different products that I can provide should you wish to purchase beautiful artwork of your baby to display in your home, or keepsakes to treasure forever and pass down to them when they are older.
