Love & Family

these are the golden days

Beautiful, chaotic, emotional, joyful, magical...just a few words to try and describe what family means to us all. There’s no one else that gets you like your family, no other people on earth who experience life in the same way as you, who love as fiercely and laugh as hard. Let’s capture all that, and more.

My family sessions in Cornwall & Devon are all about you and the people you love most in the world. Beautiful photographs that show the connection between you all. That whisk you back to that moment in time and bring back all the magical memories you’ve made together. This is your time to unplug, take a step back from the whirlwind of everyday life and simply...be.

I know all too well how quickly children grow and change. The years pass within a blink of an eye and before you know it your children have all grown up. Forget selfie where you try to squeeze everyone into the frame. Sessions with a family photographer are an amazing opportunity to capture you all together, to remember those hazy summer days you wish would last forever. This is your legacy.

Let’s go on an adventure together

The greatest luxury in life is time with your family.

Family Photographer Cornwall & Devon

The best photographs of your family happen during moments of true connection. I’m here to tell you that cheesy smiles and everyone looking at the camera is not important, in fact the less you look at me the better! My family shoots are laid back, relaxed and, above all, FUN! I want to capture you all laughing together, playing and having the best time.

We can embrace the outdoors, run free and go exploring together. Running through the dunes, splashing in the waves, and searching for beach treasures.

Or how about an ‘at home’ photography session? I love shooting in your home, your space and the place where you feel most at ease and comfortable. It’s a wonderful way to embrace all the memories you make there.

I keep family sessions nice and relaxed. I’ll always follow the lead of the youngest member of the clan, if your toddler is having the best time exploring then they are the boss for the session! Older children and adults tend to be a tad more flexible!

For the first half of the session we’ll stick to a very unposed, natural style of photography. I’ll simply document you all playing and laughing together. As you ease into the session and get comfortable then I’ll start to gently guide. Nothing awkward, don’t panic! Just moving you to an area with better lighting, getting you to hold hands or encouraging you to interact with some prompts. All super easy! The main thing I’ll be doing throughout your session is observing the unique love and bond between you all and getting beautiful photographs of your connection.

All the booking info

✧ Family sessions can be booked at any time of year

✧ Sessions can take place at your home or at an outdoor Devon / Cornwall location

✧ I love to shoot at sunrise or at ‘golden hour’ - around 60-90 minutes before sunset - for outdoor family sessions

✧ At home family photographer sessions can take place at any time of day, we just need daylight!

✧ Weekend and school holiday dates can book up quickly, especially in the summer months.

✧ I tend to book in family sessions around two months in advance. This gives us plenty of time to plan and prepare!

✧ If it rains on the day, don’t worry! We can either stick our wellies on and embrace the weather or reschedule.

What should you wear?

This is your time to coordinate! No, I don’t want you all in matching outfits, but think of colours and tones that compliment each other. I love neutral and earthy tones for this - browns, tans, mustard, cream, white and black. Avoid bright colours and zany patterns, these (especially red and bright pinks) can distract and cause strange colour casts. We definitely don’t want that in your photos!

Have a think about where you’re planning to do with your photos and where you want to display them in your home, what colours would look great there?

I’m always on hand to help with styling advice. Before your family session we’ll set up to time to Facetime or zoom so we can chat about your session.

Mums, I also have a beautiful selection of dresses in my studio wardrobe which you are always welcome to borrow.
