I am a fulltime photographer based in Abingdon UK.  I love to capture families enjoying the natural surroundings of the local park or gardens, or interacting at home as part of a lifestyle shoot.  I have two young boys and I love to photograph them together – they grow so quickly!  I would love the opportunity to create some family memories for you to share and treasure.

I also photograph couples and engagements – sometimes surprise engagements!  These are really fun sessions to get a few lovely photos of the two of you as you start planning your wedding.


30 minutes family photoshoot £175  //  1 hour family photoshoot £250

The photoshoots take place in or near Abingdon, either outdoors in a park or at your home. I don't offer studio sessions, I prefer a natural "lifestyle" approach.

There are plenty of parks and gardens in Abingdon where I can capture some relaxed portraits as well as unposed photos of everyone interacting.

If children and/or pets are a part of the photoshoot then it's a good idea to have toys / bubbles / balls / games to play!

Questions & Answers

My style is natural and relaxed, and I aim to capture the fun and joy of your children.  I photograph plenty of unposed moments of them playing, as well as a few group photos if they want to!

Don’t worry!  The aim of the shoot is to capture their happy faces as they play.  In some circumstances children are happy to sit for a relaxed group photograph, otherwise I can just capture them naturally for some lovely informal portraits.

Its a good idea to have some toys and games to help with distracting children from the camera.  A football, bat and ball, bubbles, ribbon on a stick, nerf guns etc are all great.  You can also bring a snack such as a biscuit or fruit.

I aim to capture you and your family in a relaxed way, and to capture the real innocence and personalities of your children.  I recommend wearing clothes they feel happy and comfortable in.  If messy play is involved then please don’t worry about them being covered in bubbles etc – as long as they are having fun!

If I am meeting you at home then please tidy anything away which you don’t want photographed such as dishes or extra toys.  I am capturing your family in their natural environment so please don’t worry too much about your home looking perfect!  Large natural light gives the best results, so your lounge area or master bedroom are usually a great option, especially with babies and very young children.

Please allow 2 weeks for your gallery to be available online.  Your gallery is password-protected and you are able to download your full set of high-resolution photographs to your computer.

I would love the opportunity to share a few of my favourites online.  This helps my business to be seen, so that other families can book me to capture their family memories.  Recommendations from friends is the best marketing!  However if you prefer to keep your photos private then that’s really fine too.
