Information

What photographic memories do you want of your little ones growing up? My documentary portrait sessions are about capturing personality, natural images that are different from the white background smiling images that are the current trend. I only undertake a limited number of sessions per year, so contact me to ask any questions or book a session.

WHO?

The session can be for your little one only, or feature Mum and Dad. I often do sessions with siblings, and these are great fun as brothers and sisters play together. My documentary portrait sessions are best for children aged 1-12. As long as they have started to sit up on their own, then we can get some really great shots with personality. Although a greater variety of shots can be achieved when they are toddling around independently.

WHERE?

The session should be somewhere you feel comfortable, a familiar surrounding for you and your family – somewhere your son or daughter can have fun! I usually shoot at your home, both inside and outside, but often shoot in Parks and at the beach! For the “document your day” sessions, we could visit a zoo, farm, or other favourite family day out attraction!

WHEN?

This depends on the look you are after…snowball fights in winter, throwing leaves in autumn, or playing in the summer sun. The sessions are available all year. Due to my commitments as a wedding photographer, my documentary portrait shoots only take place midweek.


ABOUT ME…

I started shooting children’s portraiture before weddings, and really enjoy capturing the little personalities. Since having our little boy, Noah, I’ve immersed myself in capturing who he is. I take photos of him every day and its highlighted how important creating natural images are. Below is a slideshow of Noah’s first year with us…
