Story-telling Family Photographer in Nottingham, Derbyshire & Beyond

Forget studios.

Embrace real life.

Life with young children is a beautiful chaos of school, appointments, toys lovingly strewn across your living room. Lots of love, lots of fun, and lots of work.

You’re a busy parent (or soon to be parent) and you need a style of photography that works for you. You don’t want stiff studio photos. You want your personalities to shine through. And you want a photographer who has a knack for working with little kids.

My family photography sessions are for relaxed, adventurous parents who want to remember this time in their lives in an authentic, natural way.

There are no fixed grins, no posing and no studio lights. Just you, in your home or somewhere you love, living your lives.

Family photography sessions are available throughout Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire & South Yorkshire. I am flexible and can go further afield – just get in touch to see what I can do for you.

To hold your date I require a £50 deposit. This covers the session itself and all the behind the scenes work, and is deducted from your total package price.

We’ll start with a chat on the phone to get to know each other. Then we have the session. Your session will be 1-2 hours long and your gallery will include a minimum of 30 photos.

You’ll be sent a link to your online proofing gallery, and buy your preferred package from there. There’s no hard sell from me. You can pop your order through online in the comfort of your own home, and I’ll be around to answer any questions.

I strive to get amazing results for all the families I work with. I find true beauty and pleasure in documenting the everyday, the real. Because this is your life, and I believe that it is worth capturing. When you look back on these photos with your children and grandchildren, I want you to remember how it all felt.

This is how I work.

“Caroline captured our little girl’s first birthday trip to the farm for us and we’re so pleased that we chose her. The photos really capture the fun we had and they also really catch our daughter’s sunshiney personality and our family dynamic. Caroline was a pleasure to be around during the shoot, communicated really well in the run up to the day and afterwards and we got a fantastic set of photos.”

– Rachel, Nottingham

“Beautiful photos and a very easy, relaxed shoot. My son was charging about but this didn’t phase Caroline and she got some great, natural shots.”

-Amy, London
