Your life, your love, your people
I believe in celebrating what you have - living life to the full, making memories, creating history. I believe in the comfort of the ordinary and the every day, and the little things that go with that. I believe in telling your family story, embracing the generations of your family tree, documenting your days with images that reflect your beautiful souls, just as you are.
In existing in images. In not always being the one behind the camera; being in front, being celebrated and ‘existing in images’ for generations to come. And whilst you may feel mumsy, or tired, or that you might have put on a few pounds, your children just see their Mummy (or Daddy!). Exist in those images for them to look back on and remember you; the one they simply adored.
I believe in heirlooms. In quality, in longevity and in exquisite keepsake products that will be cherished by not only your children, but your grandchildren and great grandchildren. It’s taken many years of searching for the very best and the very diverse, but from my fine art albums, to my birch spheres, my traditional framing options to modern acrylic, we have carefully crafted a collection we believe has something for every taste and style of home.
You won’t regret making the call and commissioning someone like me to capture portraiture of you and your family.
Before we get to shoot day, my heart, mind, and ears will be open as I take time to understand your reasons for booking a session, ensuring together we can appreciate the dynamics of this wonderful opportunity.
I will gently explore how you feel about being photographed, who will be joining you, and establish a location that feels like home, is a safe place, a happy place, a place that will draw out gorgeous natural you as a family - for my shoots are just like a family day out - we will wander, explore, play, laugh, chat, jump, run, sit and snuggle, whatever you choose to do, whilst just being you.
No forced posing, no awkward styling, I will simply be there and interact with you, naturally, whilst we capture the moment, and have fun at the same time.
We love it!!!! You are maybe the only person in the world that can make us look good!! We are really looking forward to seeing the rest of the images next week, I'll try and let you know if I go into labour before then!
I can honestly say we had the best time with you. It was so relaxed, we forgot we were being photographed, and we were overwhelmed by how many gorgeous ‘real us’ images you got from the session. Thank you so much, we cannot wait for our wall art to arrive for the new house, and to share the images with our extended family and friends

Thanks to you for Tuesday - we really enjoyed it and as always you made it really fun and relaxing. We are SO happy with the photos we have seen so far - I love them! She looks so beautiful in all of them - you really captured her. P.S LOVE the frame! The pics and frame are so beautiful - very happy.
Love, love, love all the images from both shoots! Thank you so much! We will let you know when we have picked our favourites.
Just wanted to say how much we love the frame, it is something we will treasure forever and all your hard work is very much appreciated. Thank you also for including all the photos on the USB stick which was a lovely surprise! Enjoy your weekend

Private, studio or on location, personal, timeless, family portraiture sessions paired with high quality imagery will always be worth the investment - but it doesn’t have to cost the earth either.
My session fees start at £95.00, to include up to 2 hours of photography on shoot day, unlimited advice and guidance throughout the planning of your shoot, a 1:1 post shoot viewing appointment and product consultation, a copy of our limited edition product look book, and a private digital gallery platform of all your images to help you curate the perfect final collection edit, and share any images with family members who may also wish to purchase some of your collection.
Seasonal, and multi-session opportunity discounts are most absolutely available, so do get in touch (smart link) to chat through your family portraiture ideas.
Why I wish I’d booked…
…someone to capture our newborn baby. Having your first child really is an incredible new chapter. It’s life changing, a whole new start, a whole new chapter of your journey. To only have iPhone snaps, many not including me and certainly nothing that I’m proud to frame, is something I still find sad…and Alfie is now 5.

EXQUISITE HANDCRAFTED PRODUCTS
Images of your family deserve to be brought to life, through an innovative piece of wall art taking pride of place - or perhaps you’d prefer a bespoke edit album which can sit safely on that special shelf.
Commissioning an exquisite piece will ensure your images can be enjoyed again and again, for many years to come, as little ones become not so little, and as family life changes.
Products of the highest quality craftsmanship can most absolutely be part of your portraiture journey with me, immediately after your shoot with me, or as a follow up opportunity at a later date.
I love family portraiture sessions, and sharing my product collection with clients - creating gorgeous, honest, beautiful, timeless pieces – in celebration of you and the ones you love the most.
