Lets have some fun and create beautiful memories together. I love spending time with families of all shapes and sizes, whether it’s new babies, cheeky toddlers, harrumph teenagers, blooming mums-to-be or the whole family together. I always work to create honest and natural documentary family photography that captures and celebrates real life, in real places, and the real character and individuality of my clients.

Families who come to me for their photos do not want the bulk standard studio shots with white walls and lots of lights – like me, they want their photographs to tell their story, bringing out who they really are and how they interact together as a family. My style is relaxed, natural and artistic and my photography will bring out my clients distinctive personalities. Each family session is totally individual and 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 dad 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!

Have a good look through my family photography, and check out recent family shoots on my blog… and if you think it might be what you’re looking for, please get in touch. Prices start from as little as £75 and are great value as well as being great fun. Get in touch, I’d love to hear from you!
