When an ex-firefighter tells you that what she wants most (to celebrate a very special birthday) is for you to capture a photo of her hanging upside down from a tree and chatting to her grandchildren, you just KNOW it’s going to be a fun session.Read More
It’s kind of lovely to be with someone who thinks nothing of leaning in for a quick kiss, just to let you know they are right there, by your side.Read More
You've done the internet search, solicited referrals from friends and you have been OVERWHELMED with suggestions, so how do you choose the photographer who is right for you?Read More
I firmly believe that photography sessions should be fun.
When I look through my lens, I'm aiming to capture every giggle, tickle, laugh and cuddle.
Moments like these are precious and all too fleeting.
It's such a privilege to be able to work a little magic and freeze a perfect instant in time with my camera, because when our babies are grown, these are the memories we'll treasure...
I'm always honoured when someone trusts me to capture precious memories of their family, especially when it is a friend and fellow photographer. Evie Winter-Luscombe thanks for the best morning of you guys being amazing! I had so much fun with you and your gorgeous family.

The true magic of a photography session in your own home is having images of your family in the one place that is already soaked in memories and nostalgia.

This time last year, I had just quit my job. I had been back from maternity leave for just six months and the combination of working nights and trying to look after two small children during the day had me running close to a burnout.Read More

It's no secret that I love photographing families, nothing gives me greater joy than capturing the special relationships you have with your children on camera. And this fun-filled winter family session over the weekend was no exception.
Gorgeous, natural family photos - whatever the weather
Whenever I have an outdoor session coming up, I can get a bit obsessive about watching the various weather reports, especially if it's a golden hour shoot just before sunset. But if there is one thing I have learned, it is that you can never really predict exactly what the weather is going to do!
When we arrived at the park there was lots of lovely dramatic cloud cover and a beautiful even light which lends itself beautifully to lovely portraits. We were also lucky enough to have the sun break through the clouds in a gorgeous sunburst, on the horizon just before sunset. Somewhere inbetween we were also treated to a very brief ice-storm where we were pelted with small hailstones, but thankfully that was very shortlived!
Feeling a little camera-shy? Not a problem during my sessions
I had the best time doing this session, this lovely family were up for having a good time - despite the chill! But their lovely little girl was a bit camera-shy. And it can be quite intimidating to have a stranger point a big camera in your face. But this wasn't a problem because we spent a lot of time playing. We threw leaves in the air, jumped over fallen tree trunks, ran, jumped and twirled and, of course, this lovely little lady had lots of snuggles with mum and dad.
Family photography matters
Of course, you don't have to take my word for it, because what really matters is not what I think of the photos, it is what the family thinks. This is what Sam had to say about the session: "Love them!!! Thank you so much! Couldn’t recommend you enough! You have a true talent with a camera and also getting a slightly reluctant 3 yr old and her Dad to engage!!!"

Every time I pick up my camera, I'm very conscious of the fact that I am capturing precious memories. Memories of you and your children, as you are, right now. And mums, those memories really matter, have a look around your home, through your albums and on your phone, I bet you have lots of photos of your children but how many of your family photos do you appear in?
I hope there are many, because as well as being precious to you, those memories are going to be precious to your children too in years to come. Whether you work, or stay at home, are doing it all on your own or have tons of support, whether there are just two or ten in your family, you are the heart and centre of that very special unit. You are necessary, irreplaceable and very loved by those little people you have made. And as they grow, as well as seeing photos of themselves and remembering happy or fun times, they will want to see photos of you laughing and loving them, just as you do every single day (even the very hard ones!)
I make a point of taking as many photos as I can of each individual parent with their children during our sessions. And what I really want to show is what you see in these few examples on this page here, that the relationship you have with your children is precious, it's unique and the love you have for them knows no bounds.

I guess you are having a little me time, browsing through the internet while your little ones are otherwise engaged (or even in bed). But I just want you to stop for a moment because they are growing up far too quickly aren't they? Soon they'll be so much bigger than they are now, so take a moment to think, what is it about them that you love, right now?Read More
The truth is, I love working with children because they have this wonderful ability to live completely in the moment.Read More
When they look back on their favourite photos, I hope little Anna will recall her delight in being thrown in the air by her dad, how fiercely she threw herself into the tightest of hugs with the two people she loves best in the world and the simple pleasure in twirling with her oh-so-elegant mum, almost-matching skirts flared in the setting sun.Read More
