HOME SWEET HOME

Photoshoots at home can also be great fun! Everyone is relaxed as we play, eat, hide or just chill out on the sofa!

With this family, my eye was instantly drawn to their gorgeous window seats. And everyone was so engrossed playing peekaboo, they completely

forgot about the camera!

I photographed this family shortly before they started a new life in the Caribbean!


They asked me to photograph their favourite family activities to ensure their daughter would remember their time in the UK.

She rode her new bike all the way the park before feeding the local geese and chasing giant bubbles!

We also created a lovely

family portrait photo.

I arranged for it to be

professionally printed

and delivered to Grandma

once they'd left for their new adventure.

This photoshoot was so much fun! The family were staying in a Cotswold's holiday cottage to celebrate Grandma's special Birthday and I was her Birthday present!

She loves to bake with her Grandson so this became the theme for their photoshoot. You should have heard the giggles as we broke eggs, sieved flour and licked out the bowl!

Then we popped our wellies on to explore the village before heading home for...cake!

Believe it or not, but photographing teenagers is not as difficult as you'd imagine. The trick is to involve them when it comes to planning the photoshoot and keep it fast-paced on the day! Being flexible and happy to adjust to their emotions is also key.

Teenagers can also have their own quirky behaviours from being glued to their phones, or in this family's case, always lagging behind the rest of the family! I couldn't resist capturing this memory for them as we headed out and about in London!
