Photographs of families and children's portraits shot on location in the York area, Yorkshire and beyond: for families who wish to be captured in the great outdoors! Shots are relaxed and natural and include individual as well as partner and group portraits. We'll choose a mutually convenient location that meets your family's requirements. I photograph your family as you are naturally – taking gorgeous portraits of you and your children either at your home or at an outdoor location mutually agreed - wherever you feel comfortable. I'm very flexible and we can work out a time that suits your family’s routine best.
My philosophy is all about capturing real human emotion and spirit with ‘no fuss’ so I shall not be bringing elaborate costumes or props to my shoots! If your children have any favourite toys or comforters though, do feel free to bring them along. Have a look at my ‘Family Portraits’ gallery for example portraits.
I love photographing children of all ages and consider it part of a ‘family' shoot session to include photos of all of the members of the family - sibling and individual shots -as well as individual shots of mum and dad with the children.
There will be a bit of gentle posing involved but I find the best shots are often unplanned so I will spend some time observing and capturing members of the family doing what they are doing naturally in their home environment or walking around and playing at our chosen location. For me, it’s all about impromptu eye contact and pictures that tell a story.
