Family is our anchor, the main drive, and reason we work so hard. But we’re often so busy rushing around we don’t take the time to appreciate the little things. It’s easy to get caught up in doing everything you need to do for your family but never take time to soak them all in.  In the early days when things are tough, we can sometimes lose sight of our why. Having these family photographers helps keep you grounded, remind you of your why and lift your spirits on the days where everything feels a little bit too hard. As a mother of 3 who regularly invests in my own family photographs I know all too well how important these moments, caught on camera, are to me. They remind me of the good in the darkest of moments.

I’ve spent years watching, waiting, and perfecting. I know the photos that you don’t even know you need. My goal is to create a time capsule, to stir up nostalgia, to leave you with a legacy. These images are for you to enjoy now, to walk past them in your house and smile.  There’s so much more to it than that.  The pictures you take today will be something your chidlren will cherish years from now. I don’t create family art to be stuck on a USB at the back of your drawer. I want to provide you with more worthy stunning family portraits you’ll want to display on every wall in your home and I feel my whole business, not all around, ensuring that I make this as easy as possible for you. 

I want to give you memories you didn’t even know you need or wanted.

Why I think you need to have your family photos taken at sunset…

What makes me so passionate about photographing families? Everyone needs to indulge in the people they love. There’s nothing selfish about wanting to pause the moment and keep these memories.  With a photography session, you’ll not only get all the photos you’ve always wanted. It will force you to stop the hamster wheel of life and enjoy each other’s company.  

See it like a little short holiday, one you come back from more in love your family , your metaphorical cups full to the brim with each other.  

I’m a big advocate for investing in family photography and I do it every year too. Besides giving you all the permission you need to stop, enjoy, and indulge in each other, it gives you a lasting memory. It’s something you can hang in your home to provoke conversation, inspire little minds, and to leave a legacy for your kids. There’s nothing I love more than providing your family with images that not only look great, but take you back in time to a moment and a memory.

Did you know that family photos on the walls can improve your child’s mental health? It’s true! Each day, seeing a family photo where your kids are surrounded by the people they love most, their parents, grandparents, and siblings. It’s a reminder of belonging and a feeling of being safe. That, in turn, strengthens their self-esteem and confidence.

So what is it really like having your family photos taken outdoors? 

As with my in-home sessions, my outdoor sessions are run in a very similar way. I understand the importance of gaining your children’s trust, making sure I build a relationship with them however that looks as each child is so individual and that’s where my questionnaire comes into play. I will find out as much as I can beforehand soI  don’t go into your session blind.. I do this to help produce the images you see in my portfolio. If your children can’t be themselves then we will not be able to capture you authentically. To do this your kids need to be on my side. We’re going to play games, we’re going to laugh, we’re going to say silly words and stay up late. At the end of it what’s likely to happen is they will tell you that they don’t want to leave to go home.  They are having too much fun! It’s so critical to me to get them on board from the start. 

My aim is to catch you in the most natural and authentic way possible. It may seem counterproductive but in order to do this I need to direct you to enable me to capture these “moments in time”. It’s all about movement so I will give you direction and let you “run” with that to create your families moments.

 As much as it is capturing the big smiles and belly laughter, my family photography is also about making sure that it’s real emotion. I on the look out for that all the time. It could be the way you brush your child’s hair or the way they grab your finger as they toddle.. It might be how they embrace you or how your hands embrace theirs, or the deep belly laughs they struggle to come up for air with. All of that is what I want to see and. together, we’ll capture your memories.

I like to think of this as me giving you time to “breathe them in” to remember their scent, how they feel when they lean against you, when you struggle to tell where you end and they start. To me, it’s so important to be able to capture that and give you these all-important memories. As you look back through these photos, you should be able to relive that moment over and over again.

My photo may seem candid, but don’t be fooled. I’m not expecting you to know how to pose. It’s impossible for you to know how to pose, so I’ll be there to give you some direction based on the best light we’re on. It’s going to be loosely directed, I’ll help you get into flattering angles, and then I’ll help you relax into each other. That’s when the magic happens.

They’ll outgrow our laps one day, but they won’t outgrow our hearts.

What can you expect when we book an outdoor sunset family photography session ?

You don’t just get a family photographer when you hire me. You’ll get a “stylist” to take care of all those wardrobe worries, a therpaist to talk through the trials and tribulations of parenthood, a kids’ entertainer, a light magician, and last but not least, a wonderful happy photographer and expert photo editor.

As most of my clients book me months in advance, my calendar is often full. Planning ahead is a good idea.  It’s even more important that we get some dates in the diary months in advance if you have a specific date in mind.

“Her ability to put your entire family at ease and talk motherhood with me like I’d known her a lifetime was invaluable” Amy, Portsmouth, Hampshire  

What happens before our Sunset Family Photography Shoot?

 All my relaxed outdoor sunset family photography sessions come with a tailored pre-session questionnaire so I can get to know you before we meet. You can also schedule a FaceTime/ Zoom or quick telephone call if that works for you. I’ll send you my curated style guides and links to my ‘shop my style’ Pinterest boards. Getting ready for your family photography session has never been easier.

The most important thing is to understand we’ll be working together throughout the whole process. My job is to make sure you’re all prepared, looking good, and most importantly relaxed so that we can tell your story the way you want it..


How do we choose the perfect location  ?


It’s simple, I do it for you. Taking sunset family photos is my job, I’ve spent hours searching for the best spots. Investing in a photographer means more than just having someone press the button. There’s so much that goes into making these sunset family photos so beautiful. Finding the perfect sunset location is an important step that many people overlook.  In the midst of worrying about our hair and how to keep the kids in line, we don’t think about where we want to set the scene.

My family photography sessions are planned based on travel time, ease of access, direction of sunlight, and environmental factors. I do this to create the perfect back-drop… but also to relieve some pre-shoot stress for you, so you can concentrate on having fun. 

We have been meaning to get in touch – OMG wow, we love the photos!! You’ve done some magic there! You were right, the light was fantastic! THANK YOU !!  – Newman Family, New Forest, Hampshire Dec 2020
