What is documentary photography?

I specialise in documentary family photography. I capture your every day moments. The real, raw and natural moments. The moments you may think are mundane but they are the moments that you will cherish and your children will recall as they grow up. I like to call it - “the every day beauty”.

These moments are pure, beautiful and authentic.

My mission is to inspire families to capture their true unique story of family life, embrace the chaos, live in the moment and live simply.

Invite me in to your home to capture these everyday moments or invite me along on your family adventure to document your family time together.

So how does it work?

My sessions are completely tailored to you. I offer a petite documentary session where you can specify if you’d like me to join you at home on the “Home sweet home” package or out and about exploring the woods or a favourite family location on the “Into the wilderness” package. Both sessions are 90 minutes long where I will spend this time documenting your family together, sharing your story and you being you and doing the things that you love to do.

If you are looking to combine the two experiences or extend the session you may like to consider the “Complet documentary” package. During this session I will spend 4 hours with your family documenting your everyday routine, activities, love, connection, individual characters and passion.

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, moments, milestones or celebrations that you’d like to document.

I know that inviting someone in to your home is a very personal thing and that’s why I love to talk with you on the phone or meet beforehand to chat and discuss ideas and your family dynamics.

On the day, I will arrive slightly early and ready to talk to your family, children and play some games if necessary so your children can feel at home with me being there.

I am very good with children. I have four of my own and I also used to work as a teaching assistant and nursery nurse before having my own children. I love to play dinosaurs, colour in pictures and make snails out of playdough. That’s one thing you don’t have to worry about.

I am there to capture your normal everyday and unique family story. all you have to do is be you, live in the moment and enjoy your family.
