If you’re here, then documenting your family is important to you. For over 15 years I’ve been capturing emotive images, to preserve beautiful moments in an ever changing story. I’d love to do this for you too.

Little, daily moments and even big milestones pass us by too quickly, so ensure you’re having your nostalgia days captured.

You might notice that I have families who come back for new portraits year after year, and many of them are past Bride & Groom’s who’s weddings I’ve captured too!

I offer outdoor lifestyle sessions throughout Essex and surrounding areas, where you can take in the backdrop, cuddle, laugh, give piggy-backs and just let the kids run free.

I also offer ‘at home’ lifestyle sessions. These are all about the little moments in your lives that will one day in the future, become your happiest memories. And where better to do it than your own home. Not only do children feel their most comfortable in their own surroundings but the backdrop of your home itself will add to the nostalgia of your images in the years to come. We can even include your pets!
If you’d like to incorporate an activity during the session from baking to reading a favourite book, this is a great way to really focus on your families connections.
Whatever you all love to do together, I’d love to capture it for you!

Your family is growing and you’ve a brand new, beautiful baby. Your home will have taken on a new perspective and will be your safe haven. Your dreams of parenthood began here and you’ve brought your precious bundle home – the first of so many adventures.
I photograph babies at home, where you and your baby feel most comfortable, where you can feed and change as often as needed and I can document in your own surroundings, including the brand new nursery you’ve put so much thought and time into.
This first year will bring so much change and in the blur of new parenthood it’ll fly past faster than you can imagine. Have this precious time in your lives documented, the images you invest in now will be invaluable to you in the years to come…

I’ve mentioned I’m a book lover. I totally embrace the digital age we live in but I really, really believe that you cannot beat a book. They hold the promise, adventure, beauty and your wedding photgraphs deserve to be in one. You’ll find a wide range of stunning albums in your gallery shop, each one exquisitely printed on museum grade papers, with flat fold designs to show off your images without distraction. There’s a variety of contemporary colour and fabric choices from natural toned linens to vibrant and opulent velvets.
These are, without doubt, family heirlooms, to be cherished and poured over for years to come.
When I deliver your gallery, I’ll talk you through album desing options too. Your gallery will be very easy to use and you can opt to design it all yourself, or, I can deal with it all for you and have your album delivered to your door!
Prices start at £195

“Photographs. They connect us. They are proof of where we came from, who we loved, how we changed. And, it’s in the imperfection in our photographs, in the un-staged moments, that we see our stories”.
