Portraits & Family Photos

As a mum of three wonderful children, I can honestly say that they really do grow up so fast. As you will imagine, I have oooodles of family photos of my gorgeous babes but you can never have enough, ever and I cherish all of them.

These are the most precious of photoshoots and I so enjoy getting to know each family and then capturing everyone in a fun and natural way. I have often been complimented on how relaxed I make people feel. I want you to enjoy having your family photoshoot and walk away with a smile !

Four legged friends are very welcome, after all, they are family too. They are not always so obedient as their parents but I have lots of patience and as a dog owner too I have a few handy tricks up my sleeve and the odd doggy treat to hand.

My big love for family portrait shoots is outdoor photography. I adore natural light and shooting surrounded by nature, trees, fields and flowers. Muddy wellies are wonderful, dancing in the rain, butterfly chasing and bounding through tall grass, tree climbing, frog hunting, Gruffalo tracking are all encouraged here too !

Photoshoots normally last between one and two hours. We start with a coffee and a bit of a get to know you first. Children love to see how the camera works and that they can see themselves 'in the back' after the photo is taken and this really helps to involve them, especially if they are a bit camera shy. I usually shoot over 500 images and so you will receive at least 350 edited images, if not more, all presented to you in a password protected online gallery. You are then welcome to order mounted prints (starting at a friendly £20), canvas prints, montages, woodblocks, albums and digital images.

We are surrounded by beautiful woods, fields and gardens so I am delighted to host your family photoshoot here or I would be happy to venture to you and photograph at your home if you would prefer.

I look forward to hearing from you.
