The Experience

8x8Every photo shoot is unique, bespoke to that clients requirements, but there are lots of things that are always the same, whoever has booked, whenever and wherever that photo session takes place.

You can always expect the same high levels of service with efficient and effective processes (before, during and after the session), the same attention to detail, the same high production values and most importantly, more beautiful images than you could possibly need.

And you can also rely on the same unassuming manner and observant eye… the same passionate and creative photographer with bucket loads of patience and a good sense of humour.

“It’s the passionate and meticulous way you plan, prepare, shoot and present that makes you very good and very different.”
Emma – SW15

Before every session I have an in-depth conversation to find out what you are looking for from your photo shoot. By listening to what you want, I develop a concept and a brief so that I can create the right session for you whilst ensuring everyone has some fun.
I will work with you to find the right location and the right things for everyone to wear. My personal and direct approach, from the pre-shoot consultation right through to printing onto beautiful photographic papers, enables me to deliver the best possible results for you, whilst enabling you to relax and enjoy the whole process.

I generally work outdoors, using natural light partly because natural light is the most flattering light and also because a studio doesn’t tell anything about the story of my clients and their lives.

The photo shoot itself passes very quickly. I like to make it a relaxed and fun time, as it’s important to me for everyone to feel at ease. I rarely ask for ‘smiles to camera’ as I prefer to capture individuals natural rapport and real moments, but sometimes a little bit of direction and ‘positioning’ is needed to help create the best results. And without you being aware, I will be directing you all and positioning you in the most flattering light and most relaxed positions.

…an emotional energy born out of passion and creativity

During the session, I will capture a wide range of portraits – together, individually, close-up and full length shots as well as moments of fun and some quieter more ‘observed’ moments, resulting in a collection of timeless images, captured moments and classical portraits.

Whatever your needs, my aim is for you to have a great experience of portrait photography whilst I capture beautiful, natural images of you and your family.
