Family photos are important - that’s why you’re here.

I believe great family photography should be both meaningful and artful and show not just what your family looks like, but what it feels like. The most meaningful photos come from real life. And making them should be fun!

The joy of a documentary family photography session is how relaxed and informal it is for everyone. I have kids too so I get it! Being photographed should not feel like going to the dentist. We’ll go through ideas beforehand for making the most of our time together and what to expect, but you don’t have to do anything different to normal.

If you wish, we’ll allow time for relaxed group photos, then the rest of the time is unposed reportage photography, when no-one has to sit still or be on their best behaviour. Your family time will unfold naturally and I’ll be there chatting to you all about whatever pops into our heads, so you won’t notice the camera all that much.

I’ll embrace the chaos, humour, tenderness and playfulness of your real family life. I’ll see meaning in the everyday, artfully capturing it, and celebrating it in a beautiful photo collection that will be an emotive reminder of life as it is today.

You’ll be your true selves in your photos. My portraits will embrace the individuality of children who seem to grow up and change so fast, but have always been the same inside. Your real life is more than good enough to be photographed and it’s this that will come to mean the most - to you and to the children that think you’re beautiful just as you are.

When you all hold your photo album in your hands in years to come, you’ll remember what it felt like to be together today, and your kids will see who they’ve always been, and how they are loved, just the way they are.
