capturing moments of joy, tenderness and connection

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”

This quote sums up how precious family photography is - a timeless and carefully considered art. When we see photographs of ourselves as children, we may comment about the silly hairdo we had, or those daggy clothes we wore, but after the initial giggles we access the part of our brain that holds our memories and emotions. We may remember the activity we were doing at the time, the smells in the air, the way the grass felt beneath our feet - from viewing one photograph, we can transport ourselves to times long gone.

That is the powerful privilege of photography, and so worth the investment to treasure those moments forever.

Personalised to your family

Prior to your family session you will get to tell me all about you and your beautiful family. Things like who will be photographed, what their likes/dislikes are, where you feel most yourselves (this helps with location scouting) and a few more important questions that help me tailor the photo session to your family. This will ensure your session will be truly unique and special to your sweet tribe.
