NATURAL FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY
WE DIDN’T REALISE WE WERE MAKING MEMORIES. WE JUST KNEW WE WERE HAVING FUN

Lifestyle photography is a style of photography that captures real life. It shows the real you in real locations to reflect the personalities and characters of you and your family.
It is a way of shooting that gives you the most natural family photographs. I love capturing personalities with genuine smiles and laughter which is exactly what lifestyle photography does. You will love this way of family portrait photography. It doesn’t feel like a styled photo shoot, you’re simply having a fun day out!
Natural Family Photography
I absolutely adore natural family photography and like to show innocence, happiness and love in my photographs.
Having Family Portraits crafted is something special and beautiful. It might be to mark a special occasion or to simply have memories of a magical time in childhood. You don’t ever need a reason to have a family shoot done!
Lifestyle photography is priceless because it shows your children being carefree and happy and full of innocence. Children soon grow up and you’ll soon realise the value of these memories!
You can choose the location for your family shoot and there might be somewhere meaningful to you that you love.
For example you might have a special place where you go for family days out? This might be perfect for your family photos.
Is there a place that reflects you and your family and holds special memories for you? This would make a perfect setting.
Family Portrait Photography
Alternatively I can suggest some lovely locations that I know work well for family photos. Children love being outdoors and this is when they show their true characters as they run and play. This is one of the reasons why I choose for my family shoots take place outside. Along with the use of natural light, the outdoors gives the most beautiful setting for natural family photographs.
We have some stunning beaches to choose from locally which make amazing locations for family portrait photography! It’s just one of the many benefits of being a South Wales family photographer and why beach family shoots are some of my favourite!
We are also lucky to be surrounded by beautiful countryside and gardens which also make stunning locations for your family photographs.
Alternatively you may wish to use your own home to have your shoot and I’m happy to discuss this with you.
Family photography is special to me because it’s where my love for photography began. Being able to freeze time for a split second and have that moment to look back on whenever I want to is priceless.

How I work during your photography session
It can sometimes take children a little while to be comfortable with being photographed so I like to take a bit of time to walk and chat as we get started on your photography session.
Some can be shy at first but as we go along they soon get used to it and are usually unaware that I am even taking photographs and more consumed with exploring and playing!
This is what natural family photography is about, documenting authentic moments as they happen. Whilst I might guide and engage with you and your children it’s their natural reactions that I am looking for and capturing.
Having 2 young children myself I know exactly how they can be! They may get tired and that is fine, there will be no pressure on them. My aim is to make it fun and capture images that portray their true character naturally.
