One of my favourite photography subjects is family life, from squishy newborns to wobbly toddlers, creatures and grown-ups too. Previous family shoots have included groups of siblings, whole families spanning three generations and a 100th birthday bash. I love capturing genuinely natural family moments to give you lovely memories for years.
I'm a manic mother of two - Erin and Fyfe - who certainly like to keep me on my toes. This means that I really do understand that babies and children can get tired easily and are often happier in a familiar environment. If we're doing a shoot with your newborn baby or toddler I can work around your schedule and can come to your home, local park or another location which suits you.
My family photography style is relaxed, fun and heartwarming and I have bags of patience. I never use a studio and avoid shining lights in your eyes - it's all about you, your loves ones and buckets of natural light.
These shoots generally take about an hour. I'm very understanding of the need to pause to feed a hungry newborn or to take a few minutes to get any little ones on board. You will receive your images via an online gallery which is live for up to 8 weeks after your shoot.
My newborn shoots and family shoots are both priced from £145. Did I mention they make wonderful gifts?!

I was thrilled to capture Wilf’s newborn shoot; this one tugged at my heart strings even more than usual. His proud mummy had the following lovely feedback for me after their shoot:
