Relaxed and informal is how I like to describe my family photo sessions. We all look better in photos when we’re at ease and enjoying ourselves – false smiles are never attractive – therefore I want my subjects to be genuinely at ease so that I can capture natural expressions. My family sessions take place in real locations – by this I mean not in a studio – and I use only natural light. I either come to your home or meet you at an outdoor location appropriate for the time of year. A small portion of the session is devoted to ‘posed’ photos (although very informal!), with the remaining time being used to capture candid images of you interacting with one another and engaging in activities. If we’re at your home this might involve playing a game, doing craft or practising a musical instrument. At an outdoor location it could be just exploring the surroundings and having fun. The main aim is always to create images of your family, as they are, that you can treasure for years to come.
