BEAUTIFULLY REAL FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY
A NATURAL FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY SHOOT IS A WONDERFUL CHANCE TO FREEZE FRAME THE HERE AND NOW. IT’S A CHANCE TO PRESS PAUSE AND CAPTURE FOREVER THOSE LITTLE THINGS WE DON’T WANT TO FORGET.
If you’re anything like me, you’re often staggered how the weeks and months just fly by. Family life is an absolute whirlwind. Especially the early years, equally full of magic, mess, joy, tears and full-on, happy chaos.
More than anything, I love to photograph natural connections between you and your children – the way you look at them, the way they look at you. Natural family photography captures all of this in an unposed and genuine way. We’ll always get lots of big smiles and laughs but because the photoshoot is natural, we’ll also get those magic little moments that will spark real memories in years to come. Little moments we love today and will want to remember as our children grow up.
AS A MUM, MY APPROACH TO FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY IS EASY GOING AND CHILD LED.
By letting the children run around and play, there’s no awkward posing and so any feelings of shyness quickly disappear. The photographs are real and natural, brimming with beautiful energy and laughter. I work so that the camera isn’t the focal point of attention. Going out to the park, the river or the woods or even at home or in the garden is great fun. No one is stifled, everyone relaxes. We’ll make time for some cuddly family group shots but rather than being posed and directed, it’s all about you being you and enjoying time together. And that’s the most important thing of all.
I’M A MUM TO THREE LIVEWIRES SO MY APPROACH TO FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY IS EASY GOING AND CHILD LED.
Letting the children run around and play means there’s no awkward posing. The photographs are real and natural, brimming with beautiful energy and laughter. I love to photograph the reality of family life and its perfect imperfections. Going out on location or shooting at home or in the garden, I work so that the camera isn’t the focal point of attention. We’ll make time for some cuddly family group shots but rather than being posed and directed, it’s all about you being you and enjoying time together.
IT’S ALWAYS SPECIAL TO CAPTURE THE WAY YOUR KIDS LOOK AT YOU AS YOU’RE SCOOPING THEM UP IN A HUG OR YOUR EXPRESSION AS YOU GENTLY KISS THEM ON THE HEAD. THESE LITTLE SUBTLE MOMENTS AND EVERYDAY GESTURES ARE THE ESSENCE OF FAMILY LIFE. NATURAL PHOTOGRAPHS CAPTURE YOUR LOVE AND FEW THINGS ARE MORE PRECIOUS THAN THAT.
I ALSO LOVE TO PHOTOGRAPH THE UNPOLISHED REALITY OF FAMILY LIFE.
The chaos, the giggles, the squabbles, the bear hugs, the wild eyed, the care free. Photos that will remind you, years down the line, how perfectly imperfect the everyday was.
Our children change so quickly and I love to photograph the little feet, the ridiculously long eye lashes, the knuckle dimples and the chubby thighs that won’t be there forever. As well as beautiful babies, I equally love the stroppy toddler, the melancholy tweenager and everything in between.
If these sound like the moments you want to remember, then get in touch to book a family photoshoot. It will be great to meet you and photograph your beautiful here and now.

My family photography packages include all digital files. A photoshoot captures your family at this moment in time, and to me, it makes sense for you to have all the images to look back on and smile at, years down the line.
By giving you all the images, you don’t have to choose between colour or black or white, you don’t have to choose group shots over individual portraits. You get them all. I love to photograph small story telling details too; small hands, long eyelashes, big hugs, expressions, connections. I take heaps of photographs and you’ll receive the full collection. This is exactly what I would want if I was having a photo shoot myself. Creativity, quality, and this simple pricing structure are just some of the reasons why many families choose to have their shoots with me.
Have a look through the natural family photography galleries below. Above all, you’ll get a sense of the photographs and family moments I like to capture. Colour photographs are wonderful and vibrant. I also love the timelessness of black and white photographs. As a result, I make sure my clients receive both versions – after that, the only decision, is which ones to get printed for the wall.
