A VERY WARM
You’ve made it here, hurrah! I’m guessing, if you’re anything like me, you’ve managed against all odds to snatch 5 minutes in your busy day or you’ve finally settled down with a cuppa after your kids are tucked up in bed.
How do I know? Because that’s me too!
If you’re reading this, then I’m guessing you’re considering a photoshoot. But I know you’re feeling anxious about it…
We are ever in wait of ‘perfection’ before we feel ready to be photographed.
But secretly, we know the truth, that life runs wild. That perfection is an illusion holding us back from capturing the moment; the firsts, the lasts.
We lose our days to hectic schedules and a never-ending ‘to do’ list, and before we know it, the days have turned to years.
But what if you could pause and rewind?
Photographs are the tangible reminders of your memories – the birth of your baby, that first day at school, the last night before you move to a new home. Images like these grow infinitely in value, weaving your family’s story into history. They’re for you right now but they’ll be for your children, and theirs, in the years that are coming.
But it’s the small things that get left behind and forgotten. The ordinary, day-to-day things. The way a little hand fits in yours or the soft fuzz of newborn hair or the way your child loves to play a simple game of ‘hide and seek’.
As your photographer, I’ll document these precious details and craft a session around your family. It’s about capturing the interaction between you and preserving authentic moments, however small, how imperfect, however real. Most importantly, it’s about helping you to hold onto the essence of who you are right now. Before everyone grows and changes and life moves on.
Because life won’t wait. This is it.
I can’t wait to meet you!

Have a look at your phone photos right now – lots of family snaps or hardly any at all? In either case, you’d love some really great family photographs, right?
You’d really like to find time to
You’ll love my style if you’d like to see your gallery filled with natural candids, relationships between family members, genuine moments and expressions, interspersed with a few portraits of everyone together, looking relaxed and happy in light and airy images, either in an outdoor setting or in the comfort of your own home.
