LONDON’S LEADING DOCUMENTARY FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER
2019 + 2020 WINNER
INTERNATIONAL DOCUMENTARY FAMILY AWARDS
RE-INVENTING THE FAMILY PHOTOGRAPH
NO ‘SAY CHEESE’, NO MATCHY-MATCHY, NO COOKIE-CUTTER POSES
Instead I craft carefully observed, honest images showing the humour and beauty of the crazy, messy, everyday life that you have created, to tell a story that is uniquely and unquestionably yours.
This is natural, documentary family photography at its best.
‘It’s been so emotional, we’ve all been in tears looking through our gallery! How do you know to capture those moments that last a second … Absolutely perfect!’
LISA, LONDON FAMILY PHOTOSHOOT, YEAR-IN-THE-LIFE
Family is my everything. Bring me all the chaos, fast pace, mess and noise. I love the rollercoaster ride of emotions, pride, exhaustion, joy, and all the laughs and tears these bring. We have days with big celebrations and exciting adventures, but it’s mostly made up of small moments and routine days that make our home and our life 100% ‘us’ … I take photos a lot, because I know that one day we’ll move on from this stage and I’ll ache to remember every detail.
What if you could have a photoshoot that looked in on your family and captured the real ‘you’. A photoshoot that gave you a new perspective of your family, how you love each other, comfort one another, make each other laugh, the vulnerability of parenthood, what your kids get up to when you aren’t looking, quiet contemplative moments, honest unpredictable moments … a photoshoot that celebrates your unique, real life right now.
That is why I do exactly that … I make artful, award winning natural, documentary family photos that tell the story of family life … I can’t wait to meet you and photograph yours.
