My take on family photography

July 22, 2019


Baby & family photography in Norfolk and London

I’ve been offering family photography for a while – a kind of under the counter offer – mainly for those whose weddings I’d photographed and their friends. Shooting families, babies and bumps in the same way that I approach weddings – images full of fun, laughter, emotion, light and dark and that tell things the way they are. But earlier in 2019 something changed – my own son Edwin was born –  and I saw the role that family photographs played in a whole new light. In the four short months since he arrived so much has happened, he has changed so much, I wanted to be able to freeze time – to capture all the tiny milestones and moments, and I’ve made a vow to try and photograph him with something other than my phone at least once a week. But even though I’m a pro, I still don’t manage it as much as I wish I could, and it means the photos are never of all of us – I’m always the one behind the camera.

So, if studio shoots aren’t your thing, here’s an alternative way to capture your growing family – natural, creative, artful, story telling photography. Sessions that show you as a family – your favourite things, the love you share, the places you spend your time.

So, if that sounds like your cup of tea, why not book a session? Session fees start at £75 with a host of beautiful products to add on and digital files to purchase – get in touch and I’ll send a brochure and some other gorgeous images to look through. Sessions can be weekdays or weekends (subject to availability) and I cover anywhere between Norwich and London in my session fee (and I can travel further for agreed travel costs).



from my families:


I love that despite our new parent tired faces, the drizzling rain, a seriously grumpy baby and an excitable puppy you still managed to capture some fantastic pictures, that’s an amazing talent you have. We’re so pleased with them!

- Gemma, Paul + Dylan

We love them! Some have already gone to print so we can finally have some framed pics around the house.

- Kerry, Ranj and family

We Love them - you wonderfully clever human.

- Emily, Rich and family
