Three kinds of session, to suit you and your family -
These sessions allow your everyday moments to develop and evolve by themselves. I document these moments by observing, waiting and anticipating; so I can capture the ‘smaller’ moments, interactions and gestures that describe your personalities and relationships with each other. The more time I spend with you, the more opportunities there are for these moments to present themselves. These are the moments that count. And they are what these sessions are about.
Day in The Life
£380 (8-10 hrs)*
The focus of ‘Day in The Life’ is on capturing your family life in an empathetic, honest and authentic way and for you to be reminded of a specific time in your family’s life: Creating meaningful photographs that can be passed down through the generations to come. It’s worth bearing in mind when choosing which type of session to have is that the more time I spend with you, the less self-conscious you’ll be! This always results in more meaningful photographs! It also means that I have more opportunities to make pictures that have all of you in them at the same time as well as making sure that I capture each parents relationship with each child as well as with their partner. We can also dedicate a bit of time to some relaxed, environmental portraits too if you choose (click on the image above to see the full gallery from this session).
Documentary Family Session
£280 (4 – 5 hrs)*
It might be a ‘milestone’; a party, or a family occasion. Or it might be a simple day at home or a family day out. Whatever it is you’re doing together as a family! There are no flashing lights, no performances (well… maybe a couple from the kids, but I won’t be directing them – it’s their show, not mine), no star jumps in front of white backgrounds in a sterile studio somewhere (all the Dad’s cheer!). Just you and your family, being yourselves, with each other, with no pressure and between 80 – 100 beautiful photographs to choose from at the end of your day together.
Documentary Family Mini Session
£180 (2 hrs)*
Time is sometimes in short supply for a busy family! So I offer 2 hour sessions, either in your home or on location. We can dedicate a certain amount of time to capturing some natural and relaxed family portraits if you’d like to. Otherwise, I’ll just be creating images that show natural, authentic moments of your family spending some time together – doing whatever you feel like doing! Typically there will be between 30 – 50 images in your gallery to choose from after our time together (click on the image above to see the full gallery from this session).
Real life, Real moments...
for your investment
..all sessions include
Pre - session consultation
Either over the phone or in person to discuss what kind of session works best for you. I also send out a short (optional) questionnaire for you to fill out as a family. It helps me to get to know a bit more about you. It also helps you to get a better idea of what you might want from your session and where you might want it to take place.

Books & Prints
I’m a great believer in the power of a printed image and that your family images deserve to be printed so that you can enjoy them every day! There’s a huge difference between a printed photograph that you can see and touch and a digital file that just sits on a hard drive somewhere, or on your phone…
…So, I offer archive quality print options:
A selection of beautiful linen, leatherette or leather bound books are available to preserve all the images from your session, that can be passed down through the generations. Books start at £200
A wide variety of print options are available to create wall art – either mounted or unmounted. Prints are also available on a variety of gallery grade fine art papers to ensure they last a lifetime and beyond.
