When you walk into a home and meet a mum who can't stop kissing and cuddling her boys (who are both full of energy and laughter), and a dad who clearly dotes on his family, you just know it is going to be a great session.
And photographing this gorgeous family was such a joy. From reading stories on the bed and tickle fights and hide-and-seek in the bedroom to cuddles on the sofa, we managed to pack a lot into our cosy in-home session while the snow fell outside!
The thing that I love the most about photographing a family in their home is that it is their personalities which are etched into every room. It is the place where everyone feels most comfortable and capturing those all-important, emotive family connections on camera is just that much easier.
Emotive family photography
I want you to look back on your photographs in years to come and for all the memories of what your lives were like at that time to come flooding back. This is why, to me, capturing you at your most authentic is of utmost importance.
When I pick up my camera to photograph your family, I see:
Those tight squeezes that say 'I love more than I could ever have imagined'.
The way you just can't stop kissing the giggles out of your baby.
The fierce pride you feel when you look at your family together.
The way you adore your children - no one looks at them the way that you do.
The way your partner looks at you. The love, the laughter, the awe.
When I pick up my camera, I'm freezing those little moments in time. When you look back on your photos, I want you to remember:
The feeling of your child's arms wrapped tightly around you as they bury their head into your neck and tell you how much they love you.
Your joy at the sound of your baby bursting into uncontrollable giggles, because you are the most hilarious person they have ever met.
The way you felt when your whole family was together, what they were like at the time, how they've grown and changed.
The reason I love my job so much is because I'm not just taking some nicely posed photos of your family, I'm sharing your wonder, capturing your joy, documenting those important milestones and keeping record. It's a privilege and a joy.
