Family portraits are a challenge, but it’s a challenge that I love doing! I want the photographs to focus on you all as family, portraying you all together. I do enjoy family photography, as I am able to capture you all enjoying the moment together. As every family has different interests, I would love to create family photographs of you all doing something that makes you laugh, run, splash or jump – as a family!
The bench in your back garden is a great place to get you all together, as is having a family race in the Surrey countryside. Animals are a part of many families, and I love it when they join in on the shoot too! I have photographed families together with their horses, dogs and cats – which all add to the portrait.
The focus is to get you all laughing, happy and having fun. If you are looking for a more “put together” shot, I will be happy to find the perfect location, put you all together and give tips on where to place your hands and feet. Or if you prefer a more “of the moment” photograph, I am more than happy to photograph you all together running, walking or laughing together. And if you like the idea of both, then great! That pretty much sums up my shoots. These are the images that you will look back on and remember how much fun it was that day, and how happy all of your family look together.
To view more family photographs, please visit my blog where you can see what I have been to recently. If you would like to know more about my fees and how to book a shoot, please visit the fees page. It would be wonderful to photograph you and your family together in your favourite spot, please contact me for more information.

All my childrens portraits are unique, just as every child has their own personality. I will document your day together, whether it’s out on a walk in Surrey, or at home in your back garden.
As a childrens photographer, in order to get “that smile” or “their look,” you will quite often find me chatting to your child about the fairies lost in my lens, or how I was able to capture the latest superhero in mid jump! I find it is so important to be able to connect with your children, make them laugh, and let them make me laugh too – to get those images that you will have on your wall, year after year. I love using nature to frame your children, whether they are hiding behind a tree at Leith Hill, balancing on a rock at St. Martha’s, or jumping across a stream in the Tillingbourne.
As a childrens photographer, I find that natural surroundings provide lovely colour and backgrounds to every photograph, and also offer great distractions away from the camera! When I work in studio photography, I quite often will ask your child (and you) to jump up and down together, have a wrestle/cuddle and a quick game of hide behind the camera, just to lighten it all up and get everyone laughing.
As a baby photographer, I am more than happy to come to your home, and photograph you all together in a relaxed setting. The photographs focus on your child and your new family, capturing the time you share together.
