My Approach

Family Photography


My approach to family photography is very much a photojournalism/documentary style. My photos have a story to tell and bundles of personality just like your family. Whether its newborn, little sitter, run around toddler or moody teenager I aim to capture the true character and the unique reflection of each individual.

When I became a mum of my two gorgeous boys something changed. I no longer wished my life away for the weekends, I wanted to freeze time.  I was always scared of missing a moment, a new freckle, a facial expression, a new irritating but funny habit, as these are all the silly things that you forget as they grow older but can be captured in a picture.

I believe in real smiles and sparkly eyes. I don’t want your images to have a posed studio look like you see on every other wall, in every other home. Life is not made of white backgrounds. It’s all about having fun, running around with the wind in your hair, it’s jumping on your mum and dads bed, it’s tickling, cuddling, kissing, laughing and playing.

My bespoke shoots range from newborn shoots in your home, a fun family shoot on the beach/park/forest or even an urban gritty city shoot. You tell me what you like to do as a family and I will capture the true essence of you all.
