Girl spinning in home family lifestyle shoot in Peterborough

“The most beautiful things in life aren't just things.

They are people and places, memories and moments, smiles and laughter."

A bespoke photography experience for you and your family

Whether it is the belly laughs of a child being tickled, the warmth in the eyes of parents looking on at their child with joy and pride, or the tender embrace of couples. Each family is different and has a story that is unique to them. That is why I believe in creating a bespoke photography experience for you, going beyond the traditional poses, to capture those candid expressions and connections that uniquely tells your story and says who you are.

The essentials 

The first part is about getting to know you - what, where and why? This usually takes place in a conversation with you over the phone, which is then followed-up with a short questionnaire for you to complete. You could tell me what you want in your photoshoot and the images that caught your eye in choosing documentary-style photography from my gallery

The photoshoot (the fun part!)

On the day itself, I will come to photograph you in your home or your favourite outdoor location. I like to make my sessions fun and enjoyable for everyone involved, so I'll capture all the genuine interactions and natural moments between you and your family or partner. We will chat and I'll make you feel comfortable, but I'll won't be directing you or tell you to look in the camera as I genuinely feel you would look great how you are just by being you. All my clients have said how happy and relaxed they felt when coming on a shoot with me, so I want the same experience for you too. 

The reveal

After your photoshoot, I will select and edit the best images to create stunning images in colour or black & white. Your photographs will be ready after 3-4 weeks and uploaded onto a password-protected online gallery. You have the option to choose to have a viewing and ordering session, which gives you the comfort of visualising my products in your own home and getting some advice before you make your order.

Day in the life sessions 

The day-in-the-life sessions are great for families who would like to have a part of their everyday moments captured. These are longer session lasting several hours - a half-day session usually lasts six hours and a full-day session lasts twelve hours, which could cover your morning wake-up and evening bedtime routines. I use a photojournalistic approach and acting as your family documentarian I will capture your family as you spend a typical part of your day together, whether it is in your own home, a walk to the shops or visit to the local park. The beautiful photographs I create for you is a unique way to document your family life as it truly happened and they will become some of your most treasured memories for years to come.
