Family Photography

Family life is hectic, so it’s hard to pause and take it all in. It won’t be long before your little ones are all grown up and you’re aching to remember these years. As a professional family photographer, I’m here to capture the ‘now’ of your family’s ever-changing story and give you the chance to savour those precious moments forever.   

Based in Epsom, Surrey, my outdoor family photoshoots take place in beautiful locations across Surrey & South West London or at your home. My sessions are relaxed and fun for both children and adults (it’s the key to getting great photos) and involve a mix of candid off-the-script moments with a few, more staged shots. The focus of the session is to capture your unique family connection and create a set of beautiful, emotive photographs that are full of life!  

So if you’re looking for a Surrey family photographer to bring your family’s unique story to life, then look no further!

The Experience

With an outdoor family photography session, I keep everything as straightforward and enjoyable as possible to take the pressure off you.
We have a quick chat on the phone to establish your goals and I take care of the rest; I’ll give you ideas for the perfect location, what to wear and we’ll fit the session time around your family’s activities and needs. 

My sessions are very relaxed. I’ll ask you to get down to your child's level, or bring them up to your level (if they’re little) and to play with them. I want you to enjoy your family – so I can capture the genuine, happy moments that you have together.

Many parents worry about their children not behaving for the photos. Children are unpredictable but I have plenty of practice working around them. It's often easier to let the children decide on the direction of the shoot and we just let things flow and unfold.

I aim to get back to you within 2 working days.



If the rain is torrential and we cannot shoot, the session will be rescheduled to a mutually convenient date. Very light rain isn't a problem and I usually go ahead in this case.

In the week leading up to the session, I will keep an eye on the weather forecast. If it looks changeable, we can leave it right until the evening before to decide whether or not to go ahead with the session.

Well the answer is whatever captures the ‘real you’, however, saying that there are a few useful rules you can follow. For ideas and inspiration, head to my blog for outfit ideas

What to wear for Family Photos


I have photographed children professionally for seven years and have found that children are at their best where they feel comfortable, are able to run free or do an activity that they enjoy.

But there are a few things you can do, to help too - read this blog post for ideas.

9 Tips for Getting your Kids to Cooperate for Professional Photos

It's no problem at all. 

And the consultation is free.

It's the time to ask me all the questions you may have. If you decide that I’m not the right fit for your family (I won't be right for everyone) then you haven't lost anything :-)

It takes several hours to select, edit and bring out the best in every image.

After 2-3 weeks, I'll email you a link to a private, online gallery where you can view and select your favourite images without any pressure.
