NATURAL PORTRAITS
...AT YOUR OWN HOME AND ON LOCATION

CHILDREN'S PHOTOGRAPHER IN SURREY

I specialise in natural portraits of newborns, babies and children at your own home and on location.

My aim as a children's portrait photographer is simple... to capture relaxed images of your family that freeze a moment in time for you forever. My relaxed style works best in the comfort and convenience of your own home and out on location in the familiar surroundings of a favourite place where the children can let loose and have a good run around (while I run after them with my camera!) like your local park, playground, beach... It's your choice.


PHOTO SHOOT DAY

My approach to photographing children is to find the best natural light then stand back a little and observe to help create natural images of childhood play, family interactions and special relationships. As a female photographer I feel I'm able to work intuitively and sensitively as we go with the flow of the day. I like to capture a mixture of energetic play time as well as quieter more intimate moments. I recommend your photo shoot starts in the morning as early after breakfast as possible when everyone has lots of energy and the available natural daylight is usually best. I invest my time with you by only doing one shoot a day so we can take as long as we need to although it typically takes 3 to 4 hours. I can work around your normal routine and we can take short breaks if required especially with babies.


ALL WEATHER, ALL SEASONS... ALL FUN!

Any time of year works well for portraits in all the different seasons and weather conditions that we enjoy in the UK. I use natural daylight outdoors and light from windows when indoors to keep my portraits natural and flattering. Sunny summer mornings in your garden, playing around in the colourful crisp autumn leaves, wrapped up warm in wellies, hats and scarves to splash in winter puddles and springtime rain showers or playing with favourite toys indoors in a warm, light-filled conservatory. Every season provides ever changing natural backdrops for unique portraits as your children grow and change so quickly from tiny newborns to adventurous princesses and pirates.


MY PRINT RECOMMENDATIONS

I shoot everything in colour and then convert a selection of your images to black & white during the editing process. I recommend black & white images for portraits as they are classic and timeless often producing the most flattering results without the distractions of colours. Black & white photos do not date and will look just as good in many years to come to pass down to future generations. Sometimes images from your shoot can look exceptional in colour particularly if everyone's clothing has been thoughtfully co-ordinated. I recommend that I present your images to you in black & white and use colour where appropriate.
