Capturing your growing family is the perfect way to slow things down a little. Enabling you to press pause here and there and capture life as it is right in the moment.

As a family photographer documenting family life for families around Cheshire it’s always a pleasure to be invited back to document another big family milestone. 

Sometimes that’s to photograph a family birthday or a newborn milestone but for Sarah, Pete and Tom it was about capturing a little bit of life before they went from a family of 3 to a family of 4…

Natural Family Photography and Film – Cheshire

I’ve had the pleasure of capturing natural moments for in photos and film for families all around Cheshire and the North West.

My experience as a professional natural family photographer allows me to slow down, observe and document those real family moments you may not even realise mean so much to you now but will only grow in value as your family grow up.

The every day, the moments of calm and even those moments of chaos.

Nothing staged, simply documenting a little bit of your family life so you have something honest and genuine to look back on instead of posed photos that remind you of the time you felt awkward in front of the camera!

Instead you’ll be reminded of the way they leaned on you when you read a book together.

The way they used to always stick their tongue out when they’re concentrating.

The way they made you laugh and look them in a way that passes by in the blink of an eye.

The ‘gentle’ hands saying hi to your baby bump (watch their family film to the end to see why it wasn’t so gentle….)

Genunie Connections – Family Photography and Video

It’s those genuine connections between you all that are so wonderfully captured if you put your trust in me to capture a little bit of family life at home.

Having the combination of both photographs and video is something that can only be appreciated once the moments have passed, they’ve grown up and you realise how fast it all really went….

Favourite Things – Natural Family Photographer Cheshire

Sarah, Pete and Tom live over in Sale, Cheshire.

As you can see, Tom really loved his stories. He had his own toddler bookcase full of wonderful picture books. He was very particular about which books he wanted to enjoy with his parents during the time I was hanging out with them capturing some of their family moments. We heard ‘no’ and ‘not that one’ a LOT haha.

The pictures are fun, show off a bit of his cheeky personality (which I LOVE) but it’s the family video that really brings this moment back to life.

Because I’m filming as well as capturing still moments with my photography I’m also able to capture things like him ‘reading’ his favourite story too.

That wonderful stage where they can’t quite read their books yet but know their favourite stories off by heart so read along with you. Still one of my favourite stages looking back as a Mum so something I’m always excited to capture for other parents too!

Being a natural family photographer it’s all about real moments like these!

Growing Family – Bump to Baby Photography

I had the pleasure of capturing life for Sarah and Pete back when Tom was around 8-9months old (you can see that here). All the jumperoo, new baby led weaning tastes and family cuddles you could wish for!

They’ve since moved house to allow a little more room for their family to grow up in Sale, Cheshire.

This time it’s all about documenting the ‘bump to baby’ journey with a full year of family photography and film sessions to document this journey going from a family of 3 to a family of 4! Pregnancy and the growing bump, through to newborn and early years and all the baby milestones in-between.

I call it The Sweetest Year. So whether that’s your newborn baby’s first year or it’s just a year that you want to capture, it’s a great way of being able to take the pressure of documenting it all yourself and having memories that you get to be a part of too!

Being able to document family life, big milestones and growing families is not only for right now but for the future. For your children growing up and even the future generations of grandkids and great grandkids!

Imagine them having physical memories that have been saved of family life way back when…?
