If you love natural and unposed images then my new Simply Authentic collection is for you. This style of baby and family photography suits all genres from maternity and newborns to older babies and families. The editing style is light and my focus is on telling a story about a moment in time. 

These sessions are suitable for babies of any age - so if you missed out on a newborn session due to lockdown, this is a great option to consider. 

They are fun, easy, and - best of all - I come to you at home so you don’t need to worry about getting organised and out the door with a newborn baby! I remember how hard that was...... I was a terrible 45 minutes late for my son’s newborn session when I had to leave home with a newborn and an 18 month old toddler for the first time. I have great admiration for all my “on time” clients! 

Sometimes we forget to go back and update our family photographs after the baby stage, but I think it is so important to capture regular photographs of your family as it grows and changes. I also love to include grandparents in my sessions; these have been some of the most treasured images I have created.


While I enjoy photographing the whole family, some of my clients just want a record of their children growing each year and I love watching my little clients become big clients! 


I typically hold my Simply Authentic family photography sessions outside - making the most of our beautiful Canterbury landscape. As well as capturing beautiful family portraits, outdoor sessions enable me to create a gallery that shows your family out enjoying themselves in a more relaxed and informal manner. I find that the best time of day for these sessions is the 'golden hour' before sunset when the light is at its most beautiful and flattering. 

Studio sessions for children and small families are also available in my classic portraiture style.
