How I Approach You

As a family photographer my main motivation is figuring out how to capture an essence of your personalities. The way you interact. The dynamics of your family, and all the personalities involved. For me, this is not about standing stock still in a perfectly lit studio with your hair and makeup just so.

It’s not about posing or doing anything you wouldn’t normally do.

Let Them Be Little

My sessions are all about letting kids be kids, whatever their age. It relaxes everyone, and you’re free to join in with their fun too. I let kids explore, to run around and free-range. The normal interactions you have with your children provide ample opportunities to get gorgeous and varied photographs of you all together (because we all know that mums are usually the ones holding the camera)

Locations

I know that the idea of a photographer in your family space can feel daunting. I always feel like my house isn’t quite tidy enough or as I’d want to see it in photos. But it’s where we live, and to my children it’s their home, their safe space. They are themselves when we’re at home. As a photographer I can also assure you that I won’t be taking photos of the details of your home, because you and your children will be my focus.

If you want the photos but the thought of doing it at home fills you with dread, then we can go outdoors, or simply split the session between indoors and a nearby park or garden.

Who Is It For?

My autumn family photoshoots are suitable for families of all sizes, and children of all ages. Because my approach is mainly documentary, all the direction from me is simply about where the best light is. I might give you simple ideas for how to interact, and we can work on a plan for the session together, so that everyone has fun and you get memories that matter to you. 

These autumn family photoshoot sessions are available for families around Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and South Yorkshire.
