Documentary Family Photography Sessions

What do you love most about your family?

Your morning cuddles? Baking a cake on a Sunday afternoon together? Exploring wildlife in the woods nearby? Playing football in the back yard? Bedtime routines? Do you wish you could hold on to those precious memories forever?

Let me capture those beautiful, fleeting moments that make your family so unique. For you and your children. This is your story.

The goal of my documentary photo sessions is to capture who you are as a family and create memories for you and your kids to look back to in years to come.

I’m something between a fly on the wall observing your family dynamics and being right in there with you hanging out like a friend. If it’s quiet time, I’ll be quiet with you. I don’t interfere but I interact when it feels right.
Also, if your kids are doing something they’re not supposed to do, I’ll 100% be there with my camera, ready to capture it.

Where does a documentary photography session take place?

Your family photography session happens on location – wherever that is. Preferably it’s at your home or a place that means something to you. The idea is for you to feel comfortable and for your kids to behave like they usually do.

I won’t ask you to come to a park just because it looks pretty. I also won’t ask you to get all dressed up in your best outfits that can’t get dirty. As much as I want to capture you in a way that will make you feel good about yourself, it’s not about looking perfect.

The idea behind a documentary family photo session is to capture a glimpse of who you really are.

I’ll capture your kids with a snotty nose and dirty trousers because they’re rolling around in your backyard. There’ll be photographs of tears and comfort hugs because someone stubbed their toe or a pout because there is no ice cream before dinner. It’s all part of family life…

How to book a documentary family photography session??

Let me document how your family works! To learn more about who’s part of your family and what you guys like to do, I will send you a questionnaire to get a better idea. It will also help me understand what the things are, that you as parents will miss the most about your kids when they grow up. I want to make sure that when you look at the images I create for you, you will recognise yourselves and won’t be able to stop looking at them.

Before your session:
• 20% deposit required to secure your date
• final balance due 1 week before session
• We can meet over coffee (in or around the Brighton area) or have a (skype) call to get to know each other and discuss the day ahead of shooting

I can offer a payment plan for you if you require one. However, the full balance needs to be paid before you receive your photos. At least 75% of the full balance needs to be paid before the session happens.
