Hertfordshire professional family photographer

My goal is for the photography session to be enjoyable, and for the end result to be an authentic representation of your family and how you interact. To achieve this I like to give very subtle direction, which usually takes the form of playing games and engaging children with the process - whilst valuing their ideas. I do not like to rush the sessions, and being outside is where I find children to be at their most engaged with the process.

I fully appreciate that your pet dog may be included as a family member on a shoot and always enjoy the opportunity to capture all the fun (and mud) on camera - treats essential! As a dog owner myself I am able to recommend some ideal locations within Hertfordshire which offer beautiful scenery for this purpose.

The final result will be presented to you as an online gallery from which you can choose your favourite images to be edited and printed on premium fine art paper. It is my absolute pleasure to interact with your family in this way, and then present you with images that you will treasure for many years to come.
