Lifestyle Family Photography 
thats unposed, raw and authentic...

As parents we are often told to be present, be in the moment, enjoy it while it lasts, they grow up too fast. It's hard not to brush it off with a "I'm just so busy" or "yeah I'll be sure I'll be there... on the weekend."  Every now and then we stop and take a look around only to realise everyone was right they really do grow up so fast and it feels like we have missed it all. 
 I'm so grateful for images of my girls, they hold so much. I can see their personalities, small details unique to them, I get an uninterrupted view back into the past, into the kid or baby they used to be. All those little memories that I may have otherwise forgotten come flooding back. 


These days don't last...
 they disappear faster than you think. 

Now I'm not saying I can turn back time - Oh how I wish I could. But what I am saying is documenting these days is as close as we're gonna get. If you've made it here I'm pretty sure that you feel exactly the same way. Can we just freeze time?

My family sessions are just that a few hours where we capture all that uniqueness of your family.
The fun, adventurous, cuddly, silliness that is your family just as they are now. And the absolute best part, you get to be in it, you get to be part of the memories your making and you get to be captured right along side them.  

These sessions can be done in the comfort of your own home or alternatively we can head outdoors to capture your family in a gorgeous golden glow. My sessions are up to 90 minutes long and we have so much fun.
This means we can be as slow and relaxed needed or as excited and silly as we want.
This ensures everyone is comfortable, the shy ones, the funny ones and the grumpy ones. 

When is the best time to book in a family session 

Frequently Asked Questions

Family sessions are usually fun and adventurous so outdoor family sessions are preferable.  To get the stunning golden light aim for a sunrise or sunset sessions to capture you in that amazing golden light. Some families want to be captured in their own homes, capturing special memories in a special place.  If your after a cosy in-home session then well aim to shoot in the middle of the day between 10am and 2pm.

where do you photograph families

I personally love an outdoor session for family photos. Kids love to be outside and also give us so much more space to be adventurous, play games and give them the space to let their personalities shine.
There is always the option of an in-home family session it does takes the pressure off getting dressed up and getting out of the house at a specific time and also allows us to go as slow as needed, some kids are just more relaxed and comfortable at home and thats ok. 

what should i wear to my family photography session 

What you wear has quite an impact on your family photos so many people feel the pressure in this area. Don't stress though when you book in you receive a great guide to help you in this area. We go through colours and textures as well as tips on where to start planning your wardrobe and what not to wear. I'm always here to help too and have actually been known to nip to the shops to grab an outfit or accessory for my clients. I also have a very small client wardrobe if you really get stuck so feel free to ask me about it. 

how long does a photoshoot last 

My family sessions can be anything up to 90 mins.  To some that may feel like a long time of standing, posing and saying cheese. Because I am a lifestyle photographer there is actually very little of that happening. I'll get you to play games and just enjoy spending time together the only difference is there is a photographer there documenting it, and offering a tip or two.  

how many people does my session fee cover 

My packages are for immediate family only which is most often a couple or parents and a few kids. If an extended family session is what you are after I am happy to do that too there will just be an additional charge for each additional person. If this is what you are looking for feel free to reach out and ask for a quote. 

what if my kids are too shy to be photographed 

I too have a shy little one that most certainly does not like her photo taken. Strangely enough she is also my photogenic child. As I have mentioned before these or not your typical photo sessions. My aim is to get everyone as comfortable as possible no matter how many times I might have to bring out the toilet jokes or sing nursery rhymes and so far I haven't failed. 

my husband is not keen on getting family photos taken he thinks its awkward

Yes husbands can be a bit like that. I'll have your husband so engaged in the kids and having fun with them he will hopefully not even realise I'm there. And if all else fails ice-cream is a great bribe even for husbands.
