My approach

I’m a full-service family photographer. This means that I offer a personal and bespoke service from the moment you first contact me until your favourite photographs are hung on your wall.

 

What does this mean for you?

 

An experience tailored to you.

Before you book me, I’ll come to your home to find out a bit more about you. We’ll discuss your budget, what you’re hoping for from your shoot, where you’d like to display your photographs, and the type of product you’d like. If you think we’re a good fit, I’ll book you in.

 

Then, we can plan your shoot. Before I pick the camera up, I’ll find out more about you and your family: your personalities, your interests and what you enjoy doing together. I’ll also start preparing for your session: scouting outdoor locations, checking where the light will fall, or planning how best to use your home for our session.

 

To help you get ready for our shoot, I’ll also send you a pre-shoot guide. This will contain advice about outfits and, if there are young children involved, tips on how to prepare them. If your session is taking place at home, it will give you a steer on readying your house. 

 

A shoot that’s focused, relaxed and fun.

As we’ll already know each other, there will be no need to break the ice. And as I’ll have prepared in advance, we can get straight on with the business of capturing your authentic family moments.

If it’s a family shoot, I usually begin with a few gently directed shots, then move on to take more candid photos of your family’s interactions. For newborn shoots, I’ll be led by your baby’s needs. Typically, a session will take around two hours – but I don’t set a timer.

A bespoke design service.

Once your shoot is over, I’ll select your best images. Then I'll edit them individually and prepare them to be viewed. If you have walls to fill, I’ll design mock-ups to show what your images will look like once they’re hung.

Around two to three weeks after your shoot, your viewing session takes place. I’ll come to your house, play a slideshow of your gallery and display any wall mock-ups I've prepared. I'll bring product samples, so that you can make informed choices. Then, we'll select your favourite images, decide how to display them, and how to make the most of your budget. 

High-quality products that stand the test of time.

And now for the best part: bringing your images to life. I transform them into something real, to be admired and enjoyed every day.

As a professional photographer, I have access to the best print laboratories in the UK and beyond. The result is products of the highest quality, and images that look exactly as they should.
