From newborn to teenager I document your family time, the relationships, the characters and capture all the beautiful moments of your family.

During a documentary session we are able to include the special little details of each person, the things your children love from dinosaurs to diggers or ponies, the things your children enjoy from puzzles to baking, or simply a favourite hobby or family passion. We can include as much of your family life as you desire. I am here to tell your unique story. Every family is different and we celebrate and capture your family time together.

So how does it work?

We spend a morning or afternoon together having fun in a relaxed manner. My sessions are completely tailored to you. If you select the “Family snapshot” session we will spend 1 to 2 hours together whereas if you opt for the “A day in the life” session I will spend anything from 4 hours to 6 hours with you. A longer session allows plenty of time to capture the story of your family whereas a short and sweet session allows my expert eye to capture the details of a specific family activity or trip.

You can choose if you’d like your session at home, out and about or a combination of both. When first booking a session I will arrange to talk through your ideas and we can discuss the location, timings of the day and any special interests you’d like to document.

I’m happy to get stuck in and play with the children too and always engage with them at home or out and about as this really helps everyone to relax and feel at ease.

Family Celebrations

Claire did a large extended family documentary photoshoot for us while we were on holiday in the Bath area. She was great in helping to organise the session in advance. On the day she helped put everyone at ease and called all the children by name which helped them relax and have fun. We now have a lovely set of family photos which will be cherished. Thanks Claire for helping us capture some wonderful memories!
