Oxfordshire Family Photographer

Outdoor family photography in Oxfordshire / Natural and relaxed newborn and family photoshoots

I am a family photographer in Abingdon Oxford.  I love to capture families enjoying the natural surroundings of the local park or gardens, or 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.

At home sessions are perfect for newborns, or to capture your day-to-day family life in the comfortable and secure surroundings of your home.


Family Photoshoot

1 hour photoshoots take place in 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 and the surrounding nearby areas 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! We can discuss the details for your photoshoot to create some relaxed and fun memories.

Questions & Answers

What is your style of photography?

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 photos of you all together if they want to!

What if my children won't pose or look at the camera?

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.

What do we need for the photoshoot?

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.

What should we wear?

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!

What do we need for a session at home?

If I am meeting you at home then please tidy anything away which you don’t want photographed such as clothes 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.

Whilst social distancing is recommended I will only be doing outdoor shoots in your garden to ensure I can maintain a suitable distance.

How long until we receive our gallery?

Please allow 3 weeks for your password-protected gallery to be available online.

Will my photos be on social media?

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, and I won't share your photos without permission.

How do we book?

I would be delighted to photograph you, your family, children and/or pets! Please get in touch via my contact form for further details.
