Three Reasons I love Family Portrait Sessions!


I don’t want to say yet….BUT Spring might finally be here. The lambs are slowly coming out into the fields, the sun is making a bit of an effort, flowers are trying their best to blossom. So after a few very wet seasons, the middle of April looks set to make up for it all. I’m getting going with a few family portrait sessions and wanted to share some of my favourites moments from the recent past with a lil blog post. So why do I love family portrait sessions……? ? ?


1. It’s so lovely to spend a few hours getting to know the families. Little ones can be shy at first, like anyone. With Spencer and Nicola, we had a play in the garden, a coffee, and a little wander. With Molly and Tori we went up to Leyburn shawl, had a play about, then hid from the hail in a lovely little tearoom. They have to be one of the best to shoot! It’s all about having fun, capturing the natural, no stress for the wee ‘uns. So reason number one so all about the experience. It’s a adventure, a special few hours, and most of all IT”S FUN!

2. I’m all about capturing special moments. If you’re after a posed family portrait with a white background….this probably isn’t going to be your bag. It’s contemporary photography by a trained professional in the beautiful Yorkshire landscape. It’s a chance to bring out your inner wild child or let your child be themselves. Capturing those beautiful moments, those individual personalities that make us all so special.


3. I’m all about beautiful light, and colours, it’s what turns a mediocre image into a timeless piece you’ll never forget. Of course, nature excels in light and colour. Which is why I love these photo wanders. I really love photographing in the natural environment, creating
something classic and timeless, something unposed and beautiful.


Session fee for a family portrait is £120 which includes two 8x10 print, and three postcard sized prints to share with loved ones. You also get 20 digital prints to keep and share as you like. As it’s Spring we have a little  ‘The Joys of Spring offer’.  Just get in touch if you’d like to know more.


Thank you for reading, over and out from the Dales!
