Family Portrait Photography
What would you grab if your house was burning down? Would you grab an expensive handbag or your family photographs. In a blink of your eye your children grow up and it's so hard to keep track of the time and how they change. My photographs are my most precious possession, I have them carefully backed up and I print them in little albums which the kids and I love to look back at. When I look through my albums the happy memories I have photographed are pulled back from the abyss of my mind and they make me smile.
My family photo shoots and baby photo sessions are are focused on capturing beautiful images of the natural smiles and connections between you and your family. They are informal, relaxed and natural. They don't involve hours of photo shop to create a perfect magazine style image of what a perfect baby or child should be. I love natural un-posed smiles so I make my family photo shoots fun and I create an experience you will enjoy.
My family portrait photography captures the natural beauty in your family and the natural smiles of children. I always try to use natural light and I capture the environment.
Is there somewhere you love to go as a family, or do you just like being together in your own home? What I love about my family lifestyle photo shoots is that families spend 2 hours together just exploring, interacting and playing. I capture it and the memories are preserved forever. These shoots are memories not just photographs of you all standing still looking at a camera.
What to expect?
As a mum and a photographer I love, love family photo shoots. My style is relaxed and is very different to the studio style photo shoots with white backgrounds. They always capture the environment in some way and they tell the story of your family and the little interactions between everyone. Your children are little treasures and I have fun with them and capture them naturally, I don't make them sit still and smile at the camera. I play and capture those naturally happy faces :-).
