Authentic Family Stories
LOVE AND BEAUTY IN YOUR EVERYDAY
From your toddler taking their first steps to your grandparents proudly surrounded by their loved ones, there are so many special family moments worth capturing in photos. Lifestyle family photo shoots offer a really enjoyable way to capture these natural, candid moments and the honest expressions of your family and children in a relaxed and informal location.
I impulsively gravitate to documenting the love, the laughter, the beauty and all that comes with family life. Combine this with my creative style and documentary approach and you will be delivered a vibrant set of images that capture the true essence of your family connection.

FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION FEES
My aim during your family photography session is for you to relax and enjoy the experience of creating beautiful, timeless photographs of your loved ones. After your photo shoot we will arrange an ordering session, whereby you can enjoy the viewing of your finished images. I believe gorgeous photography deserves to be enhanced and shown off in the way that it deserves; framed and displayed as special memories to look back on and enjoy for years to come. During your ordering session, you will have the chance to see samples of the frames, canvases and other products I offer while I can assist you in selecting the perfect display options for your home.
Displayed in your home a simple print becomes a point of interest; it’s a permanent reminder of your cherished memories and can be viewed and enjoyed everyday. Take a look at some of the bespoke photographic artworks such as frames and canvases and keepsakes that are available to create from your session images here.
I'm based in Romford, Essex and work within a 25 mile radius. However, I love to travel to photograph special memories so do get in touch no matter where you live, for a bespoke quote.
Lifestyle photography is all about embracing the real moments. Blending my eye for composition with a documentary approach, I’m looking to capture the very heart and soul of you and your family in the most honest and beautiful way. This is the reason I find it best to get outdoors, play some games, interact and capture the natural moments that unfold. Photographing kids is all about getting them in their most expressive and uninhibited state, to capture those true expressions of character.
My bespoke, personal service is different to what you'll get at a high street studio. I take a candid approach and my goal is to discover and capture the character, those moments of the effervescence of childhood, the radiance of love, and all the small details that make your child and your family. In order to create photographs that, not only describe what your loved ones look like, but show us those characteristic things that make them who they are.
I normally find that toddlers and older children have the most fun outdoors at parks, woods, beaches, towns and other scenic locations. There is nothing better than unique locations that reflect the interests and values of the families I photograph. If your child is younger sometimes an in home session works best, particularly if the weather is chillier. It is essential that your family/child photography session is relaxed and real, in a setting that allows you and your children to feel comfortable and be themselves. I am happy to recommend areas for family photo shoots or work with a location of your choice.
Sessions generally last up to an hour.
Try to wear something you might normally wear. I want these images to be natural and a slice of life, but some clothes work better for photos than others. I always recommend neutral tones, some pops of colour, textures and most importantly something COMFORTABLE. I love bright, airy, whites, greys, bright pops of colour and simplicity when it comes to family photography. Try to coordinate colours so that it works well as a group. Also, consider the weather and wear something appropriate for this. If it’s wet, wellies and coats can be really cute in family photos!
When we meet at the location of your choice we can chat through any ideas you have for the session. Then we will go for a walk, try to imagine I am not there most of time! I will capture natural images of yourselves and your family throughout, directing if and when necessary to capture the best out of yourselves and the location. Try to treat it as a family day out and enjoy it as you would normally!
Session fees start at £75 and this covers my time and creative talent. It also includes a bespoke in-home viewing and ordering session after your family photo shoot, whereby you can view and choose your finished images and which photographic products you would like. Mounted prints then start from £50. I also offer a stunning range of wall art products including beautiful bespoke frames, canvases as well as stunning keepsake storybooks. Digital files can also be purchased. Please see the product guide for more information and get in touch for a full guide on products and pricing.
You can expect to view between 20-25 images from your family session.
