Natural, Real & Fun Family Photography in Lancashire, Greater Manchester and Merseyside
I generally call myself a Wedding Photographer, and I wouldn’t have this any other way! But photography takes me way deeper than that.
The thing I love most about weddings is that I get to document the happiness. The good times. The milestones. I also like to adapt this way of thinking to everyday life through my family photography sessions.
And so my approach stays the same! I keep the sessions fun and active, and in return we get some amazing natural photographs of your loved ones as they have an absolute ball creating the images.
You don’t need a spotless home or a super-trendy outfit… I want your family to be unapologetically yourselves, so I can show just how wonderful that is.
So what is Family Lifestyle Photography?
Lifestyle photography lies somewhere in between documentary photography and classic portraiture. There isn’t any stiff posing, elaborate artificial studio backdrops and lighting, and the strange props are kept to a minimum! However, I do give some general direction to make the most out of the situation and surroundings in the time we spend together. I may set up some activities to keep the kids occupied. If it helps you to feel more comfortable in from of the camera I will offer the occasional prompt and then I step back and capture the natural responses that follow. That’s when the good stuff happens.
I like the session to not feel like a photoshoot, so they are comfortable and empowered by the process and most of all, so they have fun!
A photo session with me is a chance to slow down, to be free of distractions, even if just for an hour or so. Be in the moment with your loved ones, let your kids be kids and preserve the details and celebrate the milestones of your life together.
