WHAT IS A FAMILY PHOTO SESSION?

A chance to capture some natural, relaxed images telling the story of your family, to look back on in years to come.

If your family is anything like mine, we keep saying we must make some time for a family photo session…but the days are long and the years are so short and before you know it, another half year has flown by and their little legs are growing longer and you start to realise those people that said time would fly, were actually right.

I know it can be tempting to wait until the house is exactly how you want it, or until they sleep a bit better and you don’t feel as tired, or…but there’s never a perfect time to book a family shoot.

Capturing this time with your littlies, the realness, your every day is such a privilege for me - I come along with my friendly smile and laid back approach. and love finding the connection between you, and the way you are together. I want to capture the the meaningful in-between moments - the giggles, the running around letting off steam, the tickles...the pauses, the play, sharing a favourite story, cuddles and the thoughtful moments too.

WHY DO I LOVE PHOTOGRAPHING FAMILIES?

Since the birth of my two children, photos have taken on such precious meaning to me - heritage, memory, connection. And I’ve found I’m mostly behind the lens, but make an extra effort to have photos of myself with my two because I want them to look back in twenty years time and remember how I was too. And that’s how I come along to your session, trying to put myself in your shoes, feeling the love and embracing the little moments with as much importance as I give my own. Every family looks different and I embrace them all - this is the best part of my job, meeting so many wonderful people and learning from them as I grow as a person and photographer. I have been a photographer for 7 years now, but I began my career as an Early Years teacher in central London, so I have spent a lot of time over the years in the company of small children. I am absolutely fascinated with how they develop, interact with the world and grow in their own unique way. I hope to capture their personality, spirit and connection with you in the photographs I take.

I know a lot of adults often say we don't enjoy being photographed (myself included!) but trust me when I say that your children will thank you when they look back on these photos in years to come. This isn't about the perfect white background, the perfect outfit and the perfect pose - it’s about connection and creating images that celebrate both childhood and parenthood. We go at your pace and take time to get down to the children's level, creating authentic images that are unique to your family, that you will all enjoy looking back many years from now when they are grown (and the sleep deprived days are far behind you!)

WHERE?

Let’s meet somewhere that’s meaningful to you - usually it is lovely to begin at your home where your children are most comfortable, and then head out for an adventure. If it’s somewhere you love to be together, your images will reflect that. In your final digital gallery you will receive images of the little moments, connection, hugs, tears and belly laughs if and when they happen and all of the surprises along the way, in little pockets of natural light. I love getting to know the children I photograph - whether they are super confident and want to show me all their toys straight away, or if like my own children, they take a little while to warm up, this is why I work on location rather than in a studio.

Maybe you’ve been saying for a while that you want to book a photo session with your family or you’d like to book one in to celebrate a family milestone or birthday. Let’s book in a morning or afternoon dedicated to your family at your pace.
