I love family photography. There is something so special about helping families record their lives together, so they can keep and hold those memories forever and nothing is more momentous and precious in family life than the arrival of a new baby
All photographers have their own approach and style. Some are more formal, they have you stand and pose. Some photographers like to do more un-posed sessions. Some work in studios with white walls and some outdoors.
I like to blend approaches so that I can capture how people interact, creating authentic expression and family moments. So, I love kids running and playing. I also love in-home lifestyle sessions, but I am not a big fan of in-studio sessions (it’s not that they are bad, they are just not me). So you can choose to have your session at your home or out and about at a favourite place nearby, whichever is more ‘your family’.
I love the effect of natural light, indoors and out. I love natural authentic expressions and I love informal and documentary, so not everyone will be looking at the camera all the time, but I’ll also give guidance to set up shots and situations. So you maybe posed a little but you’ll also be moving around walking, running and having a good time. Family and baby lifestyle photo sessions will be fun. We cuddle, we play and we take our time
These sessions I do throughout the year. All I need is a bit of daylight, a family who is ready to give up a bit of control and our session will be amazing. Wellies and jumping in puddles can be fun. Wrapping up and throwing autumn leaves is great. Snow? Fabulous. And of course there’s nothing like a little summer sun Do you have pets? Bring them, they are part of the family too
Have you thought about something in your home? We can set up to photograph in home ‘lifestyle’ to capture your everyday? You don’t have to have a perfect beautiful house. It does help to have some light, but not necessary. These are the memories you can look back at and remember, the perfect way to mark the arrival of a new baby
Let’s create your new family heirloom
