My style of photography is capturing natural relaxed pictures of your children that will give you a lasting reminder of their childhood.
A time of celebration, a birthday, or a moment in time that portrays your child's personality and interests, and reveals joyful discoveries, and those priceless fleeting moments in an emotive representation.
To achieve this each session is booked for either a morning, afternoon, or late afternoon, 3-4 hours, to be able to let the children relax and be themselves, and to allow changes to themes and locations. To begin I like to discuss my creative ideas and find out more about what the children like and how they see the world around them, this enables me to build a picture story that conveys the uniqueness of their personalities.
For babies and young children I prefer to start the session at the family home to allow the children to be comfortable in their own environment surrounded by familiar things and their own favourite toys. This gives me an opportunity to gain trust and helps the flow of the photo session.
Following the initial photo session I like to move to a prearranged location, the park or favourite area of interest, the beach, castle, or farm. Again it could be somewhere familiar where the children will feel comfortable. Or, somewhere new for them to explore?
On location I always aim to work informally and in natural light where possible, as this is a great way to capture individual personalities and genuine emotions of children. It also gives them space to play and be themselves. The changing seasons also add different dimensions to the photography with changing angles of sun light or the colours of spring or autumn. Even on rainy days kids love to splash in puddles and this is a great opportunity for wonderful photographs.
We can also create great themed imagery in the studio where children are able to act out their favourite princess or super hero character or socially interact with parents and grandparents in family group photographs. I work with lots of diffused light to give a lot of space to play and act out chosen themes.

The Timeless Storybook is a photographic story of moments in time that can be from a single event, a birthday party, or built up over weeks, months or years, from baby's first pictures up to first day at big school, and beyond.
This is my most popular product and represents my personal photographic style for children's photography.
I have designed the Timeless Storybook to be produced in black and white to transcend the passage of time. So viewing this in 10, 20, or 30 years from now the images will still have their unique look and the emotions of the time will reflect from the pages without being dated.
It is produced to the highest archival standard so will not fade or deteriorate and will become a treasured family keepsake in years to come.
