My aim is always to capture lovely natural photographs. I have been photographing babies, children and families for over 12 years and the key to capturing beautiful images is to make the session fun and relaxed.
Whether I come to your home, or we meet in a London park, or you take part in one of my studio days, I always allow plenty of time to let the session unfold in a natural way; there is no rush and if your child wants to wander ‘off set’ to explore, have a break, that’s fine; the important thing is that the children enjoy the session and are free to be themselves.
Whether you as parents are included in the photographs too is entirely up to you, but I’ve lost count of the number of times unwilling parents have been persuaded to have just a few photographs with their children and loved the results.
If you would like to organise some photographs of your children or family there are a few ways we can do this:
1. A session at your home. I’d normally do a mixture of individual shots of your child/baby, group shots with both parents, and general play. We can be based entirely indoors or weather permitting outdoors, or a mixture of both.
2. A session in a central London park
3. Every now and again I use a central London studio for a day of photo sessions. I usually run one before Christmas - you could book a session or give a session as a present.
4. Use your home as a base for photographing your family and other families in your area. If you live outside London, if you can organise one or two families to come to you this makes it a cheaper option for you.
