Family Lifestyle Portraits Northampton

I absolutely love doing outdoor family lifestyle portraits.  Studio portrait sessions can be fabulous but I really love getting outdoors with a family, using the environment to create gorgeous shots and running around in the fresh air – for me the end result is always more natural and relaxed looking.

This shoot for me was just lovely – this is one of my favourite families – I’ve done their newborn shoots and a couple of family shoots and before these two gorgeous girls came along I did the Wedding photos.  So it’s always a real pleasure to catch up and see them and to photograph their lovely little girls.

We had a fabulous day in a beautiful setting in Northampton and made the most of the gorgeous flowers and colours around to create some stunning pictures.  Hard to fail when you have children this beautiful as your subjects.

I hope you enjoy these images from this lovely Family Lifestyle portrait shoot in Northampton.  If you’d like images of your family captured in a lovely fun, relaxed and natural way – no posing awkwardly – then do get in touch and we can have a chat.  Email me on or give me a call on 07981 991881.

Baby Photographer St Albans

Baby Photographer St Albans

I was very busy all through the Spring time with family portraits in Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire and didn’t get around to doing too much blogging as I then had an operation and had to take a bit of time out from work.  I did lovely shoots in the bluebells, the Spring blossom and of course amongst the Daffodils – all of which will be coming up on the blog in due course.

One such shoot with Daffodils was this spring session.  This was a shoot in London Colney, near St Albans and was with one of my favourite regular families – they have 2 crazy girls that I adore who are real characters – however this shoot was a little different as they now have a gorgeous new baby brother who added to the fun.  Like his big sisters he is just beautiful and I came away from the shoot more than a teeny bit broody and definitely a little bit in love.

As a baby photographer I love capturing images of the whole family as well as getting cute images of the new baby, so here are a mixture of indoor and outdoor shots of this lovely family from back in the Springtime – I hope you enjoy them 🙂

Children’s Portraits Ashridge Park

Children’s Portraits Ashridge Park

Earlier in Spring I did a lovely shoot at Ashridge Park with a gorgeous little girl and her family.  I hadn’t seen her since she was about 6 months old so it was lovely to catch up and see what a cheeky gorgeous little girl she has become.  It was a bit of a changeable day – bit rainy at times but she was as happy as anything, running around, climbing on trees and jumping in puddles.

This was the first time I had done any children’s portraits at Ashridge Park and it was a fabulous location.  I love to do shoots in parks as there are always some excellent shapes amongst the trees that make for lovely backdrops or nice compositions.   This was definitely the case at Ashridge Park.  It was a really fun shoot – if a little chilly – but we warmed up afterwards with a lovely cup of tea at the little cafe in the park.  A really run morning of children’s portraits.

Here are a selection of these children’s portraits from Ashridge Park.

Family Photographer Towcester Northamptonshire

Family Photographer Towcester Northamptonshire

My family portrait work covers much of Northamptonshire and I have just finished a set of 3 shoots in a year for a lovely family there.  The shoots are generally newborn, around 6-8 months and around a year.  I am not strict on times so times the second shoot is 9-10 months and the third shoot when the baby is walking.  Children develop at different speeds so I like to get the best set of images I can for my clients rather than sticking to fixed age milestones.

These shoots took place around 2 weeks, 8 months and the most recent one was in May when the little fella was about 14 months and walking with confidence.



I always love seeing the babies grow and change and become such cheeky little people.  This little guy just loved being out in the garden playing with the dandelion clocks and playing peepo with the doors on the summerhouse.  A total pleasure to photograph and totally full of fun.  I hope you like this small selection from the latest shoot.

Headshots Business Women Milton Keynes

Headshots Business Women Milton Keynes

I do a lot of business networking so meet people running all sorts of different businesses.  I tend to network in Women’s Business groups as the meeting hours suit my working life better, and often end up taking corporate head shots.  [NB: I do also take head shots of men but for the purposes of this post there are only women featured].

I cover areas such as Milton Keynes, Northampton, Bedford, Watford, Rickmansworth, St Albans, Leighton Buzzard etc..  I can quote you if you are further afield but I generally cover Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire.

People need headshots for many reason these days – websites, internal company magazines and newsletter, author’s byelines, blogging avatars but often images are needed for personal profiles on sites like LinkedIN, Twitter and Facebook.  These days people like to see who they are dealing with or who they may potentially end up working with, so a professional head shot is an investment for your business.

If, for example, you are still using a picture that is 5 years old, or one that really no longer looks like you then perhaps it’s time for an update?  My shots are all taken on location at your home, office or outdoors in a garden or local park.  We spend a little bit of time chatting or having a coffee to get to know each other so you are not too nervous before your shoot.

My sessions are relaxed and the resulting head shots are natural looking, reflecting the real you whilst still giving you a set of professional images to use.  You can select clothes accordingly and have a change of clothes to give a range from a more Corporate look to a more Smart/Casual look.

I am skilled at putting people at ease in front of the camera – especially people who hate photos of themselves – so trust me when I say this experience will not be nearly as painful as you are expecting.

Images that will capture you perfectly – approachable and friendly yet professional.

Get in touch on if you would like to book a session – especially if you’ve been putting it off.
