My Approach

Family Photography

My approach to family photography is very much a photojournalism/documentary style, when I say documentary, I don’t mean regimented and stringent, I mean comfortable and relaxed so that I capture a true representation of the raw moments as they occur. 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 don’t want your images to have a posed studio look like you see on every other wall, in every other home.  I want you to smile when you look at the picture, for you to feel that it truly reflects you as a person and as a family. My bespoke shoots range from newborn shoot 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.
