As well as photographing wedding journeys, I also love photographing families journeys. Be it tiny newborns, bouncy little children who won't sit still for five minutes, or the older generation who just want lovely, relaxed photographs of them and their loved ones. I love photographing families in a natural setting. There is something about photographing families at their favourite park or beach which really puts them at ease and allows their natural personalities and characters to shine through. Also, why have a plain white background when there are so many beautiful, natural back drops ready to be used outside? It's the perfect excuse to be outside in the fresh air exploring new locations!
Little toes, dimply knuckles, tiny fluffy mohawks, beautiful belly laughs. These are all the little things that you love which you may forget as your little one grows up. It is an absolute honour whenever I am asked to capture the first months, weeks, even days of a baby’s life. I try to capture these little snippets of life as peacefully as I possibly can ensuring that the parents and of course baby are as comfortable as they possibly can be.
I love photographing babies in their natural home setting, to ensure that their first home is documented in the photographs. Taking photographs in the home setting is much more relaxing as they are not disturbed by moving location and being plonked in an unfamiliar setting, which keeps baby at ease but also keeps the parents at ease – which will ultimately provide relaxed and natural photographs. It is also a lot less work for the new parents (no lugging that big nappy bag around!)

Being the youngest girl with four big brothers, living in a beautiful area of North Wales, my childhood was filled with fresh air, adventures in woodlands, trips to the park and lots of FUN.
These are the kind of adventures I try to portray in my photographs. No child wants to be in a stuffy studio against a plain white background, they much prefer to be outside running wild and free. I don't put a strict time limit on my portrait packages as I like to make sure I've captured the character of each family member in detail.
There are no restrictions on what time of year or where we can photograph your family. Think crunchy autumn leaves and beautiful warm colours in the colder months, bright blue skies and and beautiful sandy beaches in the summer, lush green grass and bold bright colours of your park in the spring.
The photoshoot doesn't even need to be outside - have you thought about having your family photographs at home? in the kitchen while you're baking cakes? the living area during play time? in the garden? The possibilites are endless.

Couple shoots don't have to be for engagements alone. I love it when a couple book a photoshoot just for the hell of it, what better way to celebrate your love through some bright, creative photographs! The same principal applies for couple shoots apply - no time or location is restricted! Perhaps you would like to be photographed at a location that is special to you both. A park, beach, woodland...even your favourite coffee shop or burger joint where you had your first date? Extra brownie points are applied if you include your four-legged friend in the photoshoot ;)
I also love doing maternity shoots. I am always in my element documenting this time as you can really feel the excitement and love bursting through the photographs. This time of a person's life is full of anticipation, emotions and elation and I would be over the moon to photograph this stage of your life.
