I love taking family portraits, and capturing natural, gorgeous images of you and your children. My style of working is very low key; it’s all about relaxing into it and having fun.
I find an outdoor photography session is the most natural and relaxed way to capture images of your family together, giving children room to run about and offering a variety of backdrops. Local parks are wonderful, especially where there is a variety of spaces, long grasses and interesting looking trees and I also like using urban backdrops like rustic walls, alleys and doorways. I am happy to use people's back gardens, providing there is enough space and an interesting range of backdrops.
A good year-round option! I have a garden studio in London SE4 that is small but perfectly formed, and big enough for a family portrait. I use a white or a grey backdrop depending on your preference. We can either keep it simple or you can encourage your children to dress up and bring your favourite music along to dance about to!
Family portrait shoots last up to two hours – plenty of time to have fun, try different combinations (just kids, the whole family, or individual photos), and allow for breaks. You’ll receive a CD of the best images from the day within two or three weeks of the shoot – ready for printing, framing, and distributing to family.
