Whether it’s sleepy newborns, babbling babies, cheeky toddlers, moody teenagers, blooming mums-to-be or the whole clan together, I specialise in honest, creative, documentary family photography that captures and celebrates real life, character, spirit and individuality.
Families who come to me for their photos aren’t interested in the cookie-cutter approach of sitting around in stuffy studios and posing in front of the same old white background as everyone else – like me, they want their photographs to tell a story, to be relaxed, natural, distinctive and artistic with bags of personality. Each family session is entirely bespoke, custom-made for you and the photographs will be totally unique and a beautiful little slice of your very own life.
I want to tell a story about YOU, so I capture your family doing whatever you enjoy doing, in locations that you love and that mean something to you – whether that’s snuggling up on the sofa and relaxing at home, making mud pies in the back garden, painting and crafting, baking biscuits in the kitchen, a walk and a picnic in the local park, playing hide and seek in the woods, wheeling around at the skate park, digging sandcastles on the beach, or something else altogether. You’ll be so busy having fun together that you’ll hardly notice the camera, and it’s a brilliant excuse to devote some special time entirely to your loved ones.
As a mum myself I know how fleeting these precious moments are with our families, and how quickly our little ones (very soon to be not-so-little ones!) change… and how important it is to bottle these memories while they are here so that you and your kids can remember and enjoy them in the years to come.
I’ll hand over to you a set of stunning images that you and your family will cherish as a vibrant and real reminder of your lovely clan at this moment in time. The photographs will be completely true to you, totally unlike anyone else’s, and you’ll have a blast making them!
