#MYFAMILY
Info + Pricing

To watch a family grow, connect and play is a very special thing.

Since becoming a mum, family photography has become even more important to me. Photographing families at home, in their own space 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 capture families I fit with you just capture things that happen as they happen. The tickles, the giggles, the messy bed hair, grubby faces, the occasional tantrums, the chaos, the beautiful mess that is your life and most importantly all the love. The stuff that is happening around you right now is the good stuff. The normal, the everyday, the things that happen, just because. But it is the collection of all these tiny moments that make up the most important moments in the whole wide world.

My Approach

The most important thing for me is to show the realness and the connection between you all. You don’t need to have a showroom 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 family, just as they are right now.

If you want to get a feel for what I do and what you can achieve with a session at home, have a little look at some of the lovely families I have been lucky enough to work with.

I would love to hear from you. So don’t be shy, say hello and tell me all about your brood. We can throw some ideas around and I can help you figure out what kind of coverage is going to be best for you. If you are wanting something a little different again, maybe something with grandparents or pets, shout and we can devise a plan.

WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH?

I am all about feelings, emotions and having fun! They are the biggest thing I try to ensure that I convey when I am shooting. I am very relaxed and informal with a homely feel. I am nearly all documentary; I shoot what I see, I step back and watch and wait. The good stuff happens because you have your best little people with you. I'm just there to hang out with you all.

WHAT HAPPENS ON THE DAY?

Just be yourselves. Don’t do anything you wouldn’t normally do. Dress in normal clothes and do your normal everyday things. Bake, go for a walk, play games. Just be together, be loving, give kisses and cuddles and have fun. That is all I need you to do.

It is nice to break things up a little so a bit of adventuring outside would be great. I always have wellies in my car and my waterproofs, just in-case we find a big puddle to splash in.

HOW LONG WILL YOU BE WITH US?

Anything from 2-3 hours depending on what session you have booked. I like to arrive a little bit beforehand, meet you all, give big hugs, have a chat and a cuppa and let the kids get used to me before I get my camera out.

THE WEATHER(!)

I say screw the weather. The UK is so unpredictable, I have shot in monsoons, blizzards and boiling hot heatwaves, you just don't know what you are going to get so don't stress over it. Just be ready to embrace whatever comes your way. I always have wellies in my boot, I'm up for anything!

DO YOU DO FORMAL PHOTOS

Nothing super formal but I always make sure that we get you all together to do a few 'look at the camera' shots, but I keep these very, very limited.

HOW DO WE BOOK?

Yeahy – that is great news. Drop me a line, we can find a date that works for everyone and chat about the details. I will then send you a booking form which needs to be returned with a payment and that is it… You are officially booked in.

HOW MANY IMAGES DO WE GET?

The number of images vary from family to family and depends on how many hours coverage you have. But you can expect to receive a minimum of 200 fully-edited images if I am with you for 3 hours.

WHAT CAN / CAN'T WE DO WITH THE IMAGES?

This is a good question and an important one. I talk about it more in my T+C’s but overall
 I hold the copyright and you get the reproduction rights to your images so you can share, email, 
 print, create, as often as you like and as much as you like. All I kindly ask is that you not edit the
 images when sharing on social media as it creates a false impression of my
 photography style.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTERWARDS?

I go home, backup and back up again. Then start editing (and I get really really excited looking back over my time with you.) 
 You will be able to view and download your photos online no later than 8 weeks after your session. 
 If for any reason this timescale changes I will let you know in writing.

WHERE ARE YOU BASED + DO YOU TRAVEL?

I live in a little village in Hampshire and I love it. It is very green and muddy and very country. And yes, I love to travel, around the UK or abroad (especially anywhere with beautiful golden light, or the snowy mountains) I have a passport and would love to hop onto a plane and explore somewhere new.

Travel fees apply 30 miles outside of RG23

ARE YOU INSURED?

YES, YES, YES, I am fully insured. You would have to be a bit of a numpty not to be.

WHAT HAPPENS IF ONE OF US ARE ILL ON THE DAY?

Please don’t panic, kids pick up and pass lurgies around a lot. If they/you are really poorly and want to re-arrange for another time it is no problem at all. We will find another date that works for everyone.
