If your experience of photography has been production-line studios to someone else’s schedule, saying cheese till your cheeks ache and ‘free prints’ that aren‘t, you may be wondering – what’s so different about the creative family photography experience I offer? Put simply, this is bespoke photography – tailored to you. Your family is unique – so let’s make your session the same!

It’s about being happiest surrounded by those you love, and enjoying time as a family. It’s children wearing wellies and tutus in the summer sun, and picnics in the rain. It’s relaxing at home, rediscovering a favourite place, or exploring new paths. It’s about you taking time out, stepping back and taking a breath of fresh air – together.




After our time together I’ll take care to select the very best images for your session gallery, and present them to you to view and order, either in person or online. I love that my clients are always so excited to see their galleries – it’s the best feeling after the fun of the session!


I’m never happier than when families display the images we created together in their homes and because of this I offer competitively priced yet luxurious prints and products to bring your memories home, with collections that start at £300. There’s no hard sell, and no minimum spend. It’s about helping you to share the images you love as widely as you can.


Being a creative family photographer is a leap beyond the ‘snap’ – it’s a moment captured, shared and enjoyed again and again. It’s a treasury of your journey as a family – let’s create yours!
