Get out of auto mode and learn to make the most of your camera.  

I specialise in striking yet natural portraits of your children and family. We offer an easy and fun experience, and take care that you and your children feel relaxed and comfortable with the camera. We’ll move at your family’s pace, and adapt the format according to your preferences.

Family portrait sessions usually start in your own home for an hour or so, and then we’ll take a short trip to your favourite park, a walk around the local area or simply a play in your garden. With newborn portraits, we’re more likely to stay in your home throughout unless you’d especially like some outdoor portraits too.

All photographs are available in both colour and in black & white, with a simple pricing structure and no hidden surprises.

Digital files are available for purchase, as well as fine art giclée prints, the finest quality albums and bespoke frames. More information about the products we offer can be found on our products page, and please contact us for our current price list.

We offer newborn photography, family photography, maternity photography, christening photography, baptism photography, nursery portraits, commercial photography, birthday party photography and photography tuition. If you’re looking for something else, please do get in touch and we’ll do our best to help.

I hope you’ll enjoy looking through my website – if you feel I might be the right photographer for your family, do get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you, and hopefully to meeting you soon.
