It turns out the natural, friendly and unobtrusive approach I have with weddings works very well in the family environment too…
I love film and video. I’ve not only filmed myself as a kid (I still have the tapes somewhere…) but I have adored filming and creating little highlights videos of my own family too. From holidays and road trips around the world as newlyweds to those precious early years once we started a family at our home in Burscough, Lancashire.
Now we have a daughter (Paisley) it plays a more important role in our lives. To the point where we’re running out of wall space in the hall for all the photo’s I’ve taken of her (she’s not even 4!).
Time really does fly. I know EVERYONE says that, but it’s true! Not only on a wedding day but newborns become toddlers in a blink of an eye and to be able to capture those milestones is a wonderful thing.
Beautiful Newborn, Family and Christening Films and Videos
It wasn’t long before my couples were starting families and asking me to film their christenings. I loved being a part of their next chapter and it was great for them as they already had that trust there with me from their wedding day. it was like I was their official family videographer!
I soon rekindled my love of photography (which I studied at College) and invested a lot of time getting used to modern tech and finding creative ways to capture family life in both video and photo form.
Even though I now do family photography and videography for a living I know how hard it is to find time to pick up your camera, and then there’s figuring out what to do with all those video clips so they’re not left stored on your phone or laptop.
I really wanted to find another way for you to utilise my skills and passion for creating beautiful films to relive those wonderful memories over and over again AND in a relaxed way that’s very ‘you’.
No posing, no cheesy studio shots…it’s all about natural, relaxed and fun ways to capture you guys exactly as you are at that moment! A that milestone. At that point in your lives together.
With all that in mind I have been working hard behind the scenes to create a very special natural and relaxed photography and videography package for family lifestyles shoots. At home, where you guys feel totally at ease and you can be ‘you’. No pressure to pose, no pressure to behave a certain way and plenty of actual hot cups of tea and chilled time with me (and I just happen to have a camera with me too).
“The photos and videos are SO amazing and beautifully taken that its just such a special time sitting down with your family, looking through them all.
I absolutely love comparing the different shoots and seeing how much my little baby has developed and growing between each one!
I think its amazing that I will be able to show Freiya such beautiful pictures of herself when she is older and I will have moments and memories to cherish for the rest of my life.”
From newborn films captured in your own home, to family films at your favourite locations and capturing special events like their Christenings. I’d love to create something really special for you.
Although the new family package is still a work in progress you’re welcome to show your interest by filling in the form below.
If it’s a christening you’re after let me know as I can share a few examples with you to show my style of work and you can see if it’s right for you.
