MODERN PHOTOGRAPHY

FOR FAMILIES THAT LOVE THEIR LIFE

DOCUMENTARY FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

THE ART OF REAL LIFE

As a documentary family photographer, when we have a session together I tell your story through my eyes. You may feel like your life isn’t interesting, but I promise it is! Your ordinary moments are what make you ‘you’ and add up to a beautiful, inimitable family story … this is the art of family documentary photography.

I will show you how rich and colourful your life is, the highs and lows of your everyday, the way you play, the way you work together, the way you love, the way you are loved, your routines and rituals, your crazy kids, what makes you laugh, what makes you cry … it won’t look like any other family because this is YOUR FAMILY.

I’m not shooting for single images, I’m shooting for your whole story. I firmly believe that the extended time that we spend together is a unique and essential part of my service, which allows me to capture a series of images that work as a collective to tell the story of your life. My dream is that clients come back year after year and eventually house a collection of books that trace their family history through the years.
