fun, relaxed lifestyle photography in liverpool, southport and the north west

it’s family
photography

but a lot more fun!

No stuffy studios. No posing or pretending. Just you and your family, doing your thing, your way. Lifestyle photography is all about capturing your memories in all their glory- totally authentically, with lots of love.

There are so many little moments that we take for granted. The belly laughs, the bear hugs, the jumping in muddy puddles. My lifestyle photography is perfect for capturing YOUR moments in a totally fun, relaxed way. 

What is lifestyle photography?

I adore lifestyle family photography- it is one of my absolute favourite things to shoot. Apart from the fact that children are the BEST fun to work with, it is such a privilege to be invited into your home, or on a family outing and capture life in its essence- the real, unposed, natural, as-it-happened truth. So many the photographs we take of are children are carefully created for Facebook and Instagram- selfies and perfectly polished poses. With my fun, documentary style, you receive honest photos. Fun photos. Photos that you will look back on in years to come with pangs of nostalgia, remembering tiny toes and warm homes cluttered with toys and love. 

It probably helps that I’m a big kid myself…

If you’re looking for someone who can make your children giggle, talk to them on their level and isn’t afraid of getting muddy as they roll down hills and jump in puddles– I’m your woman. I try to work like a fly-on-the-wall, discreetly capturing all of those precious moments that are all too often considered mundane- snuggles under favourite blankets with much-loved toys, jumping in puddles in their bright coloured wellies, and quiet moments reading favourite stories. It’s time to celebrate the every-day. I want to capture what makes your family unique and all of the joy. I’m lucky enough to be able to capture the mundane, and make it magical- packaging up beautiful memories that could so easily be missed or forgotten and visually document the beautiful in the everyday.

all the Latest fun

Here’s a little sample of what I do. Simple, relaxed, real family photos. No boring white backgrounds. Just real family life as it really is. I believe that family photography should capture your little brood in all their glory- muddy boots, dirty knees and smiling faces. That’s real life- and those fun, fleeting moments are so quickly forgotten. Click on the blog posts below to see a few of these magic moments, or click the button to go straight to the blog!

“RACHEL, YOU CAPTURED THEIR PERSONALITIES BRILLIANTLY AND SO NATURALLY. THEY HAD SO MUCH FUN. THANK YOU AGAIN.”

From My happy families

“We had a fantastic family shoot by Rach with my 6 month old and wife. She made us feel at ease right from the beginning and took all our ideas and requests on board! She was also awesome with our little girl Phoebe.

We were blown away by the quality of the photos and the moments captured are perfect.”

The McIver Family

Rachel came to our home and captured some amazing moments within our family. I love the style of her photography , very natural. 
I believe this works incredibly well when taking pictures of young children such as ours. I would highly recommend Rachel to capture these special moments. I can’t thank her enough..”

The Kershaw Family

Rachel… you did a photo shoot for us in the Botanic Gardens, Southport and the end results were amazing (even if we did have a couple of tantrums off the eldest). You captured their personalities brilliantly and so naturally. They had so much fun. Thank you again. Highly recommend!

The Sillet-Hornby Family

We had a lovely family shoot in botanic on Sunday. Relaxed and natural shots of the children playing, getting messy as they should be! Rachel is wonderful so kind of her to share the gorgeous photos with us. Rachel captured so many precious moments we can treasure for a lifetime.”
