Lake District Family Photography - The Wills Family

Lake District Family Photography on Lake Windermere

Back in the summer I was lucky enough to document this awesome family up in the gorgeous Lake District. Lisa, John and their two little beauties Gabriella and Charlie were so much fun to spend a couple of hours with!

As with all of my family shoots the location for this session was totally down to the family. They picked somewhere that means something to them and that they love doing. On this occasion it was a picnic by the lake followed by a bit of exploring then on to their boat for a trip out on to Lake Windermere. By letting them decide what they want to do for the shoot not only does it make everyone more relaxed but gives them memories of something they love doing together, as a family.

I love this family. They are genuinely lovely people and instantly made me feel welcome. Gabriella and Charlie instantly felt comfortable in front of the camera as I played and joked around with them.

Lancashire Family Photography at Stanah Country Park - Hannah, James, Rudy and Daisy

Introducing four wonderfully lovely humans to my blog. Hannah, James, Rudy and Daisy invited me along to hang out with them recently at Stanah Country Park in Lancashire. Their family shoot was filled with fun and laughter. I am so happy I made the decision to photograph more families. I absolutely love meeting new people and capturing such precious memories for them. 

Stanah Country Park is a bit of hidden gem, situated on the banks of the River Wyre. It's perfect for family adventures with walks, woodlands and an awesome park for various ages. We often take our girls up there for some fun so I know it fairly well. It made for the perfect setting for Hannah, James, Rudy and Daisy. They did some playing on the park and had some fun in the woods. We made memories and captured this time of their lives.

I was lucky enough to hang out with these three cousins at Brockholes Nature Reserve in Preston recently. We played, we wandered and we laughed. 

Lancashire Family Photography - Jen, Kieran and Jesse


Family Photography in Astley Park, Lancashire 

I recently met up with Jen, Kieran and their little man Jesse for their family photography session in Astley Park in Chorley. Jen is currently expecting their second child so it was great to be able to capture such an exciting time of their lives. 

As with all of my family sessions this was very much just the three of them playing and having fun, doing what families do best. 

I can't wait to meet their new arrival and capture even more memories of this wonderful family.

Chorley Family Photography

I had so much fun with The Latham's recently when we met up for their Family Photography session in the Yarrow Valley Country Park in Chorley. It was my first time meeting them and we got on straight away. As usual I just let them play and have fun as a family and I tagged along capturing some memories for them. 

There was loads of laughter, tons of cheekiness, a few tears and plenty of mud and sand to play in. 

Yorkshire Family Photography - Jose, Kerry & Luca


I was honestly so excited for this Family Photography session with Kerry, Jose and their little dude Luca. Not only was it an excuse to catch up with Kerry and Jose, as I hadn't seen them since I shot their awesome Bartle Hall wedding some years back, but I could not wait to meet the little beaut that is Luca. 

I travelled across to Yorkshire, where Jose and Kerry are now living, to capture some memories of Luca in the almost-brand-new stage of just 3 months old. I love photographing and documenting families in their own home as I really get the chance to capture their personalities and get to see them in their true comfort zone. After plenty of cuddles, lots of milk, a well needed nap and little dip in the bath I left them to their day. 

Lancashire Family Photography - Steve, April, Jack, Ollie & Theo


I was treated to a couple of hours in the presence of this wonderful family recently in Cleveleys, Lancashire. Steve, April, Jack and Ollie have recently welcomed the little dude that is Theo into their family so I was invited to spend a couple of hours with them and document their lives. I had so much fun with them all. Capturing such priceless memories for wonderful families makes me happy. My relaxed approached means very very little posing meaning they get to do what ever the hell want to do and have fun doing it.

Lancashire Family Portrait Session - Ribby Hall Village




Over the Easter Holidays I met up with the Haynes, Garner and Jobe families at Ribby Hall Village in Wrea Green, Lancashire to capture some documentary family portraits. They were visiting our lovely county to spend a bit of time all together as a family and to help celebrate a special birthday. They had hired out the stunning Coach House at Ribby Hall Village and they got in touch with me to come along and capture some memories for them.

The day was fairly cold and slightly on the wet side but after I’d arrived and introductions were made we set out for a trek through the woods. Along the way we stopped off for a bit of a play on the park and the grown ups showed the kids exactly how it’s done. Yes it was muddy. Yes it was wet. Yes it was a bit windy. But it was so much fun seeing this family together laughing, playing and spending some valuable time together.


My family portrait sessions are designed to capture families being themselves. I love getting to know new families and to see firsthand the love and laughter that being all together brings.

This bunch were such a pleasure to shoot. They didn’t once complain about the mud and we didn’t stop smiling the whole time. They are such a lovely family and I’m so chuffed I have captured such precious memories for them.

Here’s a few of my favourite photos from their session…
