I will never forget the beginning of my journey to motherhood, and how it changed my life. It opened my eyes, gave me purpose, and a deeper connection to my loved ones. I love to capture this experience in my family sessions, because I believe your photographs will be a window into your life, the story of who you are, and the beautiful family you have become. I believe your images should forever bring you back to how it felt to become a parent, to that unconditional love you have for your child or children, and to the emotional journey that is parenthood. I hope your images will become an heirloom for your children to pour over as they grow; to show their own children one day, reminding future generations of your family that your story was also the beginning of theirs. These photographs are to last a lifetime.
Timeless, Heartfelt & Intimate
I am inspired by passionate families who believe in the importance of capturing the most important moments in their lives; in preserving their memories and family legacy, through timeless photographs for future generations to discover. I am inspired by those who find joy in the simple moments of being close to their loved ones; families who love meaningful photographs which capture their most precious relationships. I love to document the laughter, the tired tears, the messy hands and faces, and all the cuddles and kisses in between. I am inspired by real life, relationships and the many funny, emotional and wonderful facets of family life. My approach is different to more traditional family or studio photography; the families I capture are looking for natural and authentic imagery in a relaxed environment.
I see it is a real privilege to be invited into your family and to document the people you love the most. I strive to create personal, unique and beautiful images, which will always bring you back to these moments in your life.
My family sessions are relaxed and natural, and I offer plenty of support both in the run up to your session and during our time together. For the documentary parts of your session, I capture the moments as they naturally unfold; those moments when you soothe your baby, breastfeed, read or sing. With older children this may mean a run around outside or at the park, or the messy chaos of meal times. I love all the unplanned moments waiting to be captured with babies and children. I work around your baby or children's schedule and of course we make time for nappy changes, snack breaks and so on! Nothing is rushed; these sessions are about capturing who you are as a family, rather than overly staged photographs. Above all, I hope to capture everything you love about your family; all of those little moments that will be so wonderful to look back on as the years go by.
When capturing portraits, I provide some gentle direction whilst allowing for the real and honest moments to unfold naturally. This results in truly timeless, heartfelt and intimate portraits which I hope will hang on the walls of your home for years to come.
My style brings a beautiful, elegant and timeless aesthetic to documentary photography, through a combination of soft colours, rich black and white imagery, beautiful light and elegant composition. I love to combine this approach with natural and intimate portraits of you together, leaving you with a meaningful and personal heirloom, crafted to stand the test of time, and forever bring alive your family story.
