“I do not have the words to describe how wonderful this is and how much joy it brings to our lives, not only now but for many years to come.”

capturing life in film

a film session at home and a near-by location that's special to you

If you love photos, but what you really love is watching old home movies from your childhood or videos of your kids on your phone, then this is the session for you! I'll make you a home movie that you and the kids will want to watch over and over and over again.

Show me what a film session can look like

Film sessions are much like a photography session, just a bit longer. It's a chance to relax and switch off from all of the noise of the outside world. We'll spend our time just hanging out, and in the process I'll capture your beautiful everyday moments. Those moments will then be hand-crafted into a 3-4 minute video time capsule that will preserve your memories in moving colour & captivating audio.

  • 3-4 hour session at home, which can also include a visit to a near-by location that's special to your family

Capturing life in Photos

a photography session at home OR at a location that's special to you

As the great Ferris Bueller once said "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it". Family photography is not just a way to document a moment in time, but a time-out from your busy family schedule, a chance to really slow down and spend some time with each other.

"You treasure these forever!

Usually as a mum you take the pics of the kids or pics of dad with the kids and rarely do I get into a photo with my boys. Normally I will shy from the camera but I forgot that a camera was even there. We had lots of laughs with Kylie along the way and it was so chilled out! Our lives go by so fast, so to be able to capture special moments in family life is so important..."

"I have no words to say thank you enough for our photos and video.

We will treasure it forever.

We really struggled to conceive G and didn't know if we would ever have another member of our family; throughout the whole pregnancy I was still worried and it didn't feel "real". With the haze of this week I don't think it hit me fully until I watched the video that we now have 3 kids!"

I currently only take 1 film session and 2 photo session bookings a month so that I can dedicate the necessary time & creativity it takes to produce beautiful art & films that your family will love. Sessions are held on Saturday afternoons, with film sessions starting 4-5 hours before sunset, photo sessions 2 hours before sunset depending on location.

I do offer a small discount on the package price if you book your session for a weekday afternoon & don’t mind allowing me to share your images and/or film on my website & social media. Just mention that you’d like a weekday session when enquiring.
