So many mums tell me they worry about their kids not behaving on a family photoshoot. But fear not, because even if your little ones decide to unleash their inner mischief, I’ve got some tricks up my sleeve to handle the situation.

Trust me, I’m a professional!

You don’t have to worry about how you’ll get your kids to behave and sit still. On a family photoshoot with me, they’ll explore, be silly and show their personalities. With over 15 years of experience of photographing families, I’ve seen it all- tempers, huffing and shyness- and it doesn’t phase me.

Remaining calm is what I do and I adapt to each family dynamic. You’ll be in safe hands with me. Read what my client had to say:

“I wish I’d known that if you kids don’t quite behave, you can still get great photos!”

When it comes to family photoshoots, I understand that children need time and space to warm up, to feel comfortable, and to truly be themselves.

It’s all about the FUN. 

We’re not just posing; we’re creating memories, capturing the laughter, and celebrating the things that make your family unique.

I’m not about stiff poses or picture-perfect expectations. It’s all about the candid, the real, and the beautifully messy moments. No need to worry about perfect smiles or obedient little angels – we’re embracing the magic that makes your family YOURS!

Our sessions are all about flexibility and patience. Whether it’s a spontaneous dance party or a quick snack break, we roll with the punches, making the whole experience stress-free for everyone, kids included!

A few Percy Pigs are always helpful!

And guess what? I’ve got a bag of tricks (and maybe even some Percy Pigs) up my sleeve to keep everyone engaged and having a laugh. From goofy games to silly jokes, we’re turning the session into a memory-making adventure.

So, don’t stress if your little ones don’t behave like angels during the session. We’re here to make it a fun and relaxed experience for everyone, no matter what shenanigans they get up to. Embrace the silly moments and unexpected surprises. Those often turn out to be the most cherished moments captured in your photos.

I offer a range of fun family photoshoots, so whether you feel more comfortable in your own home or in the great outdoors, there’s a shoot that’s just right for you. Find out more about family photography here.
