It’s so very cliche but blink and you miss it. Kids don’t stay kids for long. Tiny hands, grubby faces, crumbs on the floor. Funny sayings, mispronunciations, fingerprints on the wall. It’s what makes home, home.
Since becoming a mum, family photography has become even more important to me. Photographing families at home is such a special thing to do. We all have your own quirks and our own routines, I want to embrace exactly that. When I shoot families I fit with you just capture things that happen as they happen. The tickles, the giggles, the messy bed hair, grubby faces, the tantrums, the chaos, the mess and most importantly all the love.
I basically come to your home and hang out with you. No posed, forced, look at the camera and say cheese sort of stuff. I want to see the real stuff, the good stuff, the things that make you, you. (Here you can find out a little more.)
I have been photographing families for quite a while now and I’m confident that this is the best way to get the good stuff from you. A walk in the woods or to your local park, a fry up, tickles, giggles, lots of playing, story reading, cake making, bath time. The day is yours to do what you like. I try to have no agenda, I’m led by you and I just go with the flow. So think about your typical Saturday/Sunday and start there.
The most important thing for me is realness. You don’t need to have a show home, toys should be all over the place, dishes left on the side. Just be you. Children have tantrums, they don’t always share, they never do what they are meant to on cue so don’t get stressed trying to make them. Just play and be a family and let me capture everything that you love about your favorite people.
Prices start from £150, I would love to hear from you. So don’t be shy, say hello and tell me all about your lovely family.
We can throw some ideas around and I can help you figure out what kind of coverage is going to be best for you.
