Baby Documentary Photoshoot

Baby Documentary Photoshoot

Roughly 4.5 years ago Dom froze as he held my baby boy first the first time, he didn’t have a clue what to do, so like many guys holding a baby for the first time, he froze. He sat there rigid, unable to move until the pain in his arms became too much to handle and he handed him back to us.

I had such a great time during this family photoshoot in Hucknall, Nottingham with the Hirst family. Cate won a free family photoshoot with me through my Facebook page, after we chatted on the phone I just knew I had to photograph her fantastic family.

Family Photo Albums

Family Photo Albums

We all know that wedding albums are important to treasure, but what about family albums?

You invest in a wedding album because it’s a special once in a lifetime event (hopefully) which you'll want to remember forever and pass onto future generations. So why is it worth having albums for family photos, it’s not a one off special event? 

Day in the Life - Wollaton Park

Day in the Life - Wollaton Park

It was a wonderful weekend to be out in Wollaton Park, Nottingham with the family taking photos. 

We didn’t get off to the best of starts though, when we arrived we realised we didn’t have any change for parking. Not to worry I thought as we passed card ticket machines and an ice cream van, change wouldn’t be a problem, or so I thought.

Unposed Family Photography

Unposed Family Photography

Documentary family photography is all about capturing everyday life in a natural unposed way. There aren't many photographers in Nottingham that photograph families in this way, most have families in front of a white background and ask them to pose in a way that is anything but natural.
