I am just going to say it, I love life! The smiles, the laughter, the ups and downs. That’s why I love to capture real moments with my photography. For me it’s the best way, the only way, of seeing connections and emotions between people and, most importantly, between families.
My family and children Lifestyle photography is 100% unscripted, it’s photography that tells a story. Perfect for those of you who are after ‘fly on the wall’, documentary moments of your family.
The beauty of photography like this is that it can be used for any type of ‘life’ event, or even to tell the story of your day to day lives. It really does capture a moment in time of your family because lets face it, time flies by so fast doesn’t it! Before we know it our cute little toddlers are sulky teenagers!
So many people come to me before they book their family photography and worry that they’re rubbish at posing, or their children might play up or they’d love to have photos in their house but do they need to tidy up…for me family photography isn’t about perfection. It’s about reality. It’s your family life. I don’t expect you to be smiling all the time, or looking down my lens. I also promise I won’t make you shout “Cheese!” I’m there to document a snapshot of your life as a family, warts and all! I’ve written a blog all about my lifestyle family photography sessions so you can find out more.
Now I completely understand the a full, unscripted Lifestyle session is not for everyone. Similarly you might not want a shoot with lots of guidance from me (you can read more about my Portrait sessions here) so I can always “mix and match” the two. That way you get those wonderful real moments combined with beautiful portraits you’ll want to hang on your wall.
Take me to your happy place…
To keep things nice and relaxed for you, especially for the children, I like to do my lifestyle family and children photo sessions somewhere that you all love and are familiar with. It’s so important you all feel comfortable.
Don’t worry if you can’t think of anywhere though, I know loads of stunning locations in the North West, especially around Southport and Preston, so I’ll be on hand to advise you if you get stuck.
My Family and Children Lifestyle sessions are £249. This includes my time, travel to your home (or other location) and an online password protected gallery where you can download all of your photographs.
