Childrens photographer Olney Milton Keynes

I’m a children’s photographer based in Olney, Milton Keynes and, before the grammar police jump in, I do actually know how to use apostrophes correctly but google doesn’t like this in blog titles or keywords ….

There are millions of photographers out there so why pick me ?

  1. I genuinely love kids (handy for a childrens photographer) so even if your little angels decide to be uncooperative little gits on the day of the shoot I will win them around.
  2. I will get natural smiles and laughs from your children instead of their standard “camera” face – often it’s the shots between the ones you THINK I’m taking that are the winners.
  3. Although I will “sort of” pose you for some of the shots (if I don’t it can be really untidy looking) they will still look natural I promise.
  4. I will make the experience an enjoyable one and not a stressful one.
  5. I will make sure that the shots are taken in the best  light so you have a fabulous end result regardless of the location/surroundings/challenges during the shoot … little secret – it can take YEARS to learn how to “see the light” properly so pick someone that knows how.
  6. I have not been defeated by a child or a baby in over 10 years of business – your “challenging” toddler is safe in my hands – I am not about to let my unbroken record end.

I specialise in photos of children, families and newborn babies.  I shoot outdoors for as much of the year as possible – I am lucky to be followed around by my personal weather fairies so the weather is nearly always on our side.  I also shoot indoors if you have a brand new baby or if my fairies have taken a quick holiday and it rains (unlikely – I don’t allow much annual leave).

Finally because photography blogs need to be filled with pictures of shoots the photographer has done – here are a few recent ones.

Look at this one – gorgeous kids and even the dog behaved !

I love this little fella – third shoot we have done together since he was a tiny newborn – he just gets cuter and cuter. Are boys allowed to be this pretty ??  Seems like they are !

So I was pretty busy in Spring when the bluebells came out so didn’t blog many bluebell shoots.  I meant to come back to blogging in Summer but well … I went on holiday and enjoyed spending time taking my own family shots instead.  So here’s some oldies from the bluebell season.

Get in touch asap for an Autumn shoot as I’m getting booked up and grandma will want those pictures of her grandchildren for Christmas.  If you have a newborn baby or you are pregnant pop over to my newborn site and check out the stuff I do with the tiny humans. It’s right here.

Family Portraits Emberton Country Park

Family portraits Emberton Country Park

I’m lucky enough to live in a really pretty part of the world, close to some very beautiful parks.  Emberton Country Park is right on my doorstep and is a stunning backdrop for family portraits at all times of the year.

The lake produces some stunning reflections and there are some fabulous play areas and a whole range of gorgeous backdrops all over the park.

Relaxed outdoor family portraits are my favourite type of session, I find that both children and adults are less self-conscious with a bit of fresh air, producing much more natural results.  I take a few posed photographs but mostly we get the children to play with each other and the whole family to mess around together.  When you book your session we can pick a location to suit you near where you live.  Or if you book one of my mini-sessions near Olney these often take place at Emberton Park.   I do sometimes photograph indoors but as I tell all my customers I nearly always manage to shoot outside, regardless of our changeable UK weather, because I have my very own weather fairies !   Cloudy weather is actually great for shoots – much better than really bright sunlight so you don’t need to worry if it’s not a sunny day.  Last year I only cancelled outdoor shoot at the end of November due to rain – not bad for good old rainy England.  Like I say – weather fairies.

Here’s a few images taken from various recent shoots in Emberton par.   I hope you enjoy this sample and get in touch if you’d like a shoot for your family.  I’m getting booked up quickly and now taking bookings for Autumn.  There are a handful of shoots available on Saturdays over the summer – and more flexibility if you can do a weekday shoot.

Outdoor Photos Olney Buckinghamshire

I’ve had some lovely spring shoots outdoors this Spring – despite the challenges of the weather.  It’s always nicer to capture images outdoors in a relaxed setting, where a family can just be themselves.   I am very lucky to live in a beautiful little town, with lots of really pretty spots to take pictures.  It’s so nice to wander around finding lovely spots for photos, with great light and natural backdrops.

This shoot started in a pretty little garden that is tucked away not far from the town square.  Then we took a wander with the little boy and the dog down the river.

I hope you enjoy this natural location shoot in Olney.

Baby Photographer Milton Keynes

I haven’t blogged any family or baby shoots for a little while.  However I’ve been busy with shoots this Spring and very lucky that I have weather fairies to protect me and my lovely customers.  It’s rained so much the last couple of months but I’ve been really lucky and managed all my planned shoots outdoors despite the endless rain.

This one is a recent shoot in Milton Keynes, with a lovely family and a gorgeous little person who was a few days away from her first birthday.  This little girl was such a joy to photograph – she was such fun with a fabulous smile and cheeky little personality.  I really enjoyed capturing these moments and hope that enjoy this selection of images.

Saracens Rugby Champions

Saracens Rugby Champions

Congratulations to the fabulous Saracen’s players for winning both the English and European Championships.  Over the last few years, I’ve had the pleasure of photographing a few of the Saracens players with their gorgeous families and lovely children.  I know all the players and their families are a fabulous support network for one another and it’s always a pleasure to revisit each and every family to capture special memories for them.   I also love seeing the little ones in their kits as mascots on the pitch during the games.

So well done to the whole team and well done the lovely families that proudly support them.  Here are few of my favourite images collated from across the last few years.

I hope you enjoy them
