Family Photographer with a Documentary stylisation. Also offering Newborn Photography Manchester.


My Approach

My style is of a Documentary format. As part of my Documentary Family Photography I offer shoots for Newborn Photography. Manchester based Family Photographer.


My images are inspired by my genuine love of people and their stories. Whether it’s sleepy newborns, babbling babies, cheeky toddlers, crazy kids, 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. I absolutely love children and one of the biggest compliments I’ve ever been given was to be told that I photograph other people’s children as though they were my own.

Families who come to me for their photos aren’t interested in the cookie-cutter approach of stuffy family portraits in front of the same old white background – they want their photographs to tell a story, to be relaxed, natural, distinctive and artistic with bags of personality. You care about the real stuff, the good stuff… the people, the emotion, the fun, the love, the laughter, the adventure… You want to be able to totally relax, doing something you genuinely enjoy with the people you love, while I give you creative, artistic, emotional photos that are a totally unique, 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 at home, making mud pies in the back garden, painting and crafting, baking biscuits in the kitchen, a walk and a picnic, hide and seek in the woods, wheeling round 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, it’s a brilliant excuse to devote some special time entirely to your loved ones….. and if you’re like me and usually hiding behind the camera, you’ll finally get those precious images of the whole family together, yourself included.

As a mum myself I know how quickly our little ones change into not-so-little ones… I’ll hand over to you a set of stunning images that you and your family can always cherish as a vibrant, real and meaningful reminder of your lovely clan and the love between you 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!

Client Love

“We truly couldn’t have wished for someone more wonderful and talented to have been part of some of the most important and amazing moments in our life. We all had a blast, we were completely overwhelmed when we received our photos and are still, to this day, blown away when we look at our pictures. You created an amazing record of such happy times in our life and really captured our crazy little family in the most perfect way possible. Even as I write this I’m looking forward to the next time we can have some pictures with you.”

The Pearsons

“I cannot describe how happy I was with our pictures, you captured the absolute soul of my girls in your photos – their real giggles and laughter as well as the innocence of their age. It really made my heart stop to see them beautiful as themselves instead of some contrived portrait.”

The Kellys

“Highly recommended by a friend, we invited Anna into our home to take photos of our 8 month old baby, Archer, and we are so pleased that we did! You can tell Anna loves children just by looking at her work, and she took amazing, natural photos that we will always treasure – slobber, giggles and yawns included! We love them. Thank you Anna!”

The Passinghams

“Having Anna round to do the shoot was a great experience, like having a friend over for a chat, and not at all awkward like some family shoots we were trying at all costs to avoid. The atmosphere was fun and relaxed, nothing was too much to ask Anna and we got a great set of photographs. We would definitely recommend her and we’ll be using her again at some point in the future.”

The Topleys

“Thank you so much for the photographs, we are absolutely thrilled with them! We just can’t choose a favourite – we love them all! We had a great time, you made it relaxed and fun and kept our boys engaged the whole time (I don’t know how you did it!) We will be recommending you to everyone!”
