My children and family sessions are simple. You pick a location where you and your children love. We play, have fun and I take photographs.  Or it may be that you’d like me to come to your home if you have a newborn or young baby, which i’m more than happy to do.

My style is all about natural, honest and personality filled moments.  With children this all comes with the territory.  When people ask what to expect from a session I always say just do what you would normally do and treat me as a friend who has come to enjoy your morning or afternoon who happens to have a camera with me. I want to capture you as a family just as you are so you look back at the pictures and remember the fun, the little quirks as well as the challenges.

I completely appreciate that you may like a picture of the whole family together, I can probably count on one hand the number I have of the 4 of us together so I know that this can be really important.  That forms a really small part of the session and is done in a fun and relaxed way so everyone is at ease.

Lots of parents worry about their little ones being shy or not co-operating during photo sessions. Having two munchkins of my own i’m totally used to chatting to children and making them feel at ease.  I find my adaptive style and relaxed approach works really well at getting the best out of children and family shoots. The blend of energy, mischief and fun really comes to life in these shoots and we all have a great time in the process!
