fun, relaxed family photography in liverpool, southport and the north west
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. Children aren’t perfect. Life isn’t perfect. My favourite photos of my own children are the ones that capture them in all of their real, crazy glory, just as they are!
There are so many little moments that we take for granted. The belly laughs, the bear hugs, the jumping in muddy puddles. The tears, the silly faces and the absolute madness of everyday life.
My lifestyle photography is perfect for capturing YOUR authentic moments in a totally fun, relaxed way, just as you are.
Real, authentic family 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 lifestyle family photography, you receive honest photos. Fun photos. Crazy 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 REAL moments that are all too often considered mundane- snuggles under favourite blankets with much-loved toys, pulling silly faces and sulking over sharing 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 family 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. Hit play on my video portfolio below to see more!
