I’m a huge believer in the power of documentary (reportage) images and how they truly reflect the deepest emotions and connections. Studio portraiture and posed lifestyle shoots are great. But there’s another side to your family which simply can’t be captured in the studio or in a structured environment.

Engage me as your personal documentary photographer and I’ll capture personal, truthful images of you and your family which give absolute insight into your family life and capture your children as they truly are: –  wonderful, exhausting, magical, exasperating, amazing.

I can visit you at home to document the daily workings of your family life, or I can accompany you on a family trip out. From a full ‘day in the life’ shoot to a shorter Real Life Documentary session, there are a variety of options available to suit your needs and your budget.

Day In The Life Session: (breakfast to bedtime) : £950
Real Life Documentary Session (4 hours) : £500
A Taste of Family Life Session: (2 hours) : £300

Prices include edited digital images on USB and travel within 75 miles of DT11 (further afield with pleasure, by request).
