Natural Family Photography and Videography

Documentary Family Photography and Film for families who want to capture real, honest family life

An alternative style of Family Photography and Videography capturing genuine, honest and natural moments of you all enjoying your ‘every day’ in the place you feel most comfortable, home.

My award-winning, natural documentary family photography is perfect for capturing your candid family moments. Those moments you love to try and capture yourself and wish you had more with YOU in them…

Why You Need A Professional Family Photographer and Videographer…

I’m guessing you’re probably the photo taker too…?

A phone FULL of gorgeous moments of everyone else, but having to scroll WAY back to find one with you in a photo!

I know the feeling well and it’s why I can help you document more of your family life with you in it.

See the way you look at your children (despite the long nights or the exhaustion we sometimes feel).

Be in the moment with them, spending time together will be rewarding for you all AND you’ll get photos to prove it.

My passion and experience, in both filming and photography, is the documentary approach. Capturing honest, candid moments that tell a story of this very moment.

A Little About Me, Your Family Photographer & Videographer

I’m Charlene. A perfectionist, tea drinking, 90’s Pop music loving film-maker and award winning family photographer based in Lancashire.

Despite not being a fan of being in front of the camera I realise the importance of being in the picture.

I want our children Paisley and Jameson to have those memories to keep and share too.

I can’t always rely on my husband to capture those natural moments for me so regularly hire a professional family photographer to document family life for us too!

I’ve been creating family and wedding videos for families all over the UK since 2010. You can read more about that on my About Me page.

There’s no need for posing to capture those genuine, natural moments.

Those real family connections happen because you’re in the place you feel most comfortable, home.

No pressure of ‘performing’ for the camera or racing out the door on time for a shoot.
