Lifestyle & Family

As George Burns famously said “Happiness is having a large, loving caring close-knit family in another city.” We can all relate I’m sure!!  Families are complex and unique, constantly growing and evolving which makes capturing moments on your familial journey so essential. 

Family photography sessions are never perfect, often messy, in a non-literal sense, but with honesty and cooperation I can work with you to capture a chapter in your family’s life that will happily transport you back to that fleeting moment for years to come.

Families can be small or large, nuclear or extended and family photograph ideas have no limitations! I can arrange family photography outdoor sessions at a destination special to you or we can go for a polished studio look – or both!

The most charming and loved family portraits are those that combine aesthetically pleasing and authentic. While we might be wowed with the perfectly posed, squeaky clean family portraits we see on social media that style might not capture the charm and individuality of your family.

One thing is a given, we can help you with your family photograph poses and absolutely guarantee you will have a good time!
