I like my family and couples portrait sessions to feel relaxed and informal, so you feel comfortable enough to be yourselves while I capture natural images of you, full of love and laughter and happiness. I reckon those are the photos you’re going to enjoy the most years later, not the stuffy ones where you all lined up to say CHEESE!
And I believe family photos like these deserve to be preserved and cherished at their best in print, away from your phone or computer. We spend way too long looking at screens, and printed art looks and feels so much better! So, after your session, once all the photographs are polished up and ready to print, we’ll get together to pick out all your favourites and create beautiful art for your home: gorgeous portrait books, fine art prints for your desk or mantlepiece, and framed art for your walls.
What sort of session suits you?
Perfect for mum, dad and the kids. I’ll come to your home, a nearby park, or anywhere else you feel comfortable, and we’ll spend a couple of hours hanging out making photos of you all together, baking, playing board games, running around in the garden, whatever you like!
Couples & Engagement sessions
Just you, your significant other, and me, spending 60-90 minutes on location making some lovely photos of you together. I love walking by the Thames, taking a stroll through a leafy park, anywhere where you can spend some time totally focussed on each other, away from the distractions of modern life.
You & your pets
Family sessions don’t always have to be about the humans in your life! If you’d like a set of photos of you with your cats, dogs, or any of your other other furry friends, we can do a dedicated session just for them, spending an hour making some gorgeous “awwwww!”-worthy photos.
Family Photography Gallery
I shoot family and couples sessions exclusively on location, ideally outside in lots of lovely natural light so everyone’s free to move around and be themselves somewhere they’re comfortable and happy. In the gallery below I’ve picked out some of my favourite photographs from recent family shoots, and you’ll see examples of mums and dads together and with their children, newborns being showered with love, and siblings playing and laughing. I love capturing all these moments with as little direction and restrictions as possible, we just spend some time together and see where it takes us!
Your family photographs deserve a special treatment, and I take great pride in providing a personal, professional service that goes far beyond simply turning up and clicking the camera. I’ll help you prepare for the session, keep everything relaxed on the day, and work on your photographs personally until they’re finished.
And I believe that seeing your pictures on a computer or phone screen just doesn’t compare to a beautifully finished print in your home, so after the session I focus on creating gorgeous portrait books, fine art prints, and a range of wall art to fill any space and suit any style – whatever suits your style and your budget.
We’ll arrange an in-person viewing session at your home where I’ll present all the finished images to you for the first time, and then we’ll go through them together to help you select all your favourites. I’ll be able to show you sample albums and prints, and we’ll look at the space you have available together so I can help you make the best choices for you.
