“the main objective is to photograph the love and have fun doing it!”

My portrait sessions are all about you and telling your story. Having your portrait taken doesn’t mean you have to pose in a studio, so whether you enjoy walks along the beach together, conker hunting in the woods or time playing guitar we create a session that has meaning to you.

I love how portrait sessions have evolved from studio sittings to carefree and fun portraits, allowing you to run, jump, hitch piggyback rides and climb trees. I love to shoot outdoors, if you have something fun and creative in mind please do talk to me. Feel free to bring wardrobe changes and props that you feel are intrinsic to you as a family or couple. A kite that you fly together, a picnic blanket you use every summer. Also consider wildflowers, fruit, balloons, your dog, your kids — the main objective is to photograph the love and connections and have fun doing it! The best images are not always when you are smiling at the camera.  Don’t worry we will only stop when I know we’ve got some great images and besides, we will be having fun so smiling will come naturally.

I shoot outdoors (newborn sessions work in the comfort of your own home) with natural available light so either the morning or late afternoon works best. Our “studio” can be a country field, seaside, a coffee shop, an urban setting or even your home.

Please contact me and I will send you prices, information and tips for your portrait session.

Newborn sessions, Newborn to toddler sessions, Maternity sessions, Family shoot, Engagement / Couple shoot, Love your dress shoot

All sessions include a password protected online gallery with images from the session for your viewing with family and friends. Framed prints and coffee table books are available, please ask! I would hate to think of the photos staying on USB so why not let me arrange the printing for you.

Lifestyle photography is all about you, your family and your favorite locations, so I will be ready to travel if necessary. For distances over 20 miles from Christchurch, Dorset I ask for 50p per mile towards travel expenses.
