Honest, Fun and Relaxed Family Photography and Videography

Below are a few examples of my honest and natural family photography and videography sessions for families just like yours.

They’ve all had worries about being in front of the camera. Whether it’s been that their house wasn’t ‘ready’ for a photoshoot, whether the kids (or husband) would be on their best behaviour or whether they’d even watch it back because they didn’t like the idea of being on video. And I can totally relate to those worries too!

I’m certain after watching these family videos and photography slideshows and enjoying those candid family moments you’d never know they had the same worries and nerves as us.

My friendly, documentary style approach to filming and photographing your family time allows you to relax having me around. You may even go on to enjoy having me hang around with you with my camera and enjoy all those natural, un-posed moments I captured without you even realising…

You captured loads of really lovely moments / interactions that I wasn’t really aware of at the time – and I never realised I looked at my kids like I do!

We didn’t pull awkward faces because there was no telling us to sit and smile at the camera!

The Brooks Family Photography Slideshow

Hannah is actually a family photographer herself but still felt nervous about being in front of the camera!

She was worried the kids would ‘play up’ or how she would look on camera. But, actually went on to enjoy my more relaxed, documentary style of photography and the kids were happy because they got to lead instead.

It made for a really fun session where we got to really see Ellie and Thomas’s personalities, don’t you think?

The Davies Family Photography Slideshow

Not only did I get to film Freiya at only a few weeks old but we got to catch up a few times over her very first year as part of her ‘Sweetest Year’ collection. 

This was Freiya’s last family session for her ‘First Year’ shortly after her 1st birthday and we were lucky enough to capture lots of the little things that were so very ‘Freiya’ at that moment. From her new birthday gifts to her new love of ‘silly faces’ in her favourite book (I think she loved making Mum and Dad do it more!) and not forgetting a visit to see her ducks! 

Family photography session – Lydiate, Merseyide

“Oh WOW WEEEEEEEE!!!!! Thank you so much.

We are going to watch it again tonight, but do you know what we love, the fact we are all in pictures together and we can see our little family.

There are so many we adore!”

The Hall’s Family Film

Sarah, Chris and Walter welcomed me in to their home in Cheshire and showed me all the things they love to do as a family. From ALL the cars, reading and showing off his room we got to capture so many lovely family moments. Walter even said I could come back again, that’s high praise isn’t it?

I got to experience a couple of hours of Walter’s 3 year old imagination and it was a true joy. I think he also loved having his parents full attention as he created his world of transport in their living room!

The Cheetham’s ‘Real Life’ Film

After a maternity session AND a newborn family session the Cheetham’s braved having me hang out with the for a whole day to capture a ‘Day in the Life’ for them in both photos and video!

After a relaxing start to the morning I ventured out to Southport with them for some chips by the pier and exploring the local parks.

Of all their sessions this was a favourite for us all because it really captured some of those genuine connections you only get with patience as a family photographer…

Day in the Life Family Photography – Lancashire and Soutport

“The photos Charlene takes really do capture the love within the house and family.

The photo shoot is so relaxed and calm that it does just help you take the time out of your day to chill and enjoy your time with your baby and family and not have to think about the busy life around you.

Charlene is friendly, professional, passionate and efficient and I would definitely recommend her to other families.”

I have a genuine love for REAL moments. Capturing and documenting your real family life in a way that you’d want to relive over and over again.

Those connections that may happen in a glance.

Those every day stories that may seem a little ‘ordinary’ to you but they’ll soon be the every day you wish you could relive all over again.

With my relaxed family photo and video shoots there’s no stress of getting to a studio on time, whether everyone’s in a ‘good’ mood or how you’ll manage to pose when you’re too tired to function (been there).

Looking for a more relaxed, alternative style of family photography?

There’s the distinct lack of posing or direction from me so you can avoid any worries of feeling awkward in front of the camera. My laid back approach allows me to capture real family life in a honest and genuine way.

But the most exciting thing you’ll find after the shoot is having the wonderful combination of family photographs AND video to capture a little glimpse of your family life.
