Fun, Family Photo Shoot in Henley on Thames

Happy Father and Son at riverside in Henley

I love natural, family photographs, capturing children at play and ignoring the camera. Sometimes young children find the experience of a studio photo shoot overwhelming and I just knew that I wanted to do my family photography differently.

I chose to specialise in fun, family photography in natural environments, whether it is your home/garden or at a favourite park or woods. My style of photography is called lifestyle family photography and all that means really is that I will capture your family doing something you love, interacting with each other in a natural way. I ask children to play games and make the photo shoot fun.
