Natural Surrey Family Photography
Surrey family photography is a passion of mine. I love that I get to connect with local families and spend time documenting precious moments for them. I offer a relaxed and natural approach to my family photography. However, I love travelling all over the country to photograph wonderful families as well.
My family photography sessions are about you and your wonderful family.
I do not focus on the staged and posed family portraits, but take moments in your day that are special to you. Your shoot can be anything that you want it to be, whether it is family photography at home, a tradition, a walk in your favourite woods or just a relaxed morning in your garden. Along the way we will find the right moment for some guided family portraits – without feeling forced.
What does your family photography look like?
I offer natural, documentary and portrait family photography in Surrey which beautifully captures your day-to-day life at home or on location. I love to capture the special moments that are really you, enjoying your time together.
In my opinion family photography is not about you posed awkwardly standing in matching white t-shirts and jeans, with forced smiles and kids crying in the background. It is all about a day in your life, that you feel is worth remembering. This session can be anything you want it to be. We can find the right mix of spontaneity and planned (not stuffy) portraits, together.
My approach to family photography is very relaxed.
I like to refer to it as guided portraiture. I treat everyone as an individual. No matter how your family is set up or created I am here to hold a safe space for you. Coming from an LGBTQ parent household, it is of the upmost importance to me that I reiterate that I am a supporter and ally of the LGBTQ+ community.
My objective as an LGBTQ+ family photographer is to capture your families essence and the originality of your unit in a fun and loving way. Within this ethic, I do not impose any preconception or opinions about any family set ups or the make-up of anyone’s loved ones.
“It felt like we were just hanging out with a friend”
The photos are everything I dreamed of and will be decorating the walls of our new family home for years to come. This is partly because she’s a great photographer technically and found amazing places and lighting, but also because she’s so relaxed to be around. Especially as a queer couple, my wife and I can sometimes feel uncomfortable being photographed, as I’m sure most people can, but it was so relaxed on the day, it felt like we were just hanging out with a friend.

Do you only offer local services?
I do not just offer family photography in Surrey. My family shoots can be transported anywhere and I have had the pleasure of travelling to lovely parts of the country photographing amazing families. I love to capture all types of outdoor Surrey family photography but that does not mean I am not willing to travel!
My family photography prices are inclusive of travel within 10 miles of Guildford Surrey, however anything outside of the county there is a fixed UK travel fee of £85.00 for areas other than the leafy borough! Here are some of my favourite outdoor Surrey family photography locations.
