So, what is a ‘Day in the Life’ session all about?

It’s human nature that the longer we spend with someone the more comfortable we feel around them and more relaxed we become.

From my experience at weddings I see first hand how people soon forget I’m there or see me more as a family friend come lunch time because we’ve been casually hanging out for a few hours already.

This is why I feel so passionately about my ‘Real Life – Day in the Life’ family sessions. They’re the BEST way to capture family life as it is now.

The best way to capture totally natural moments and unprompted connections between you.

For you little ones to embrace me being there and let me in on all the fun.

To allow you to enjoy this time together as a family and finally feel a little present (which I know is ridiculously hard at times).

To really pause life as it is now, to come back and relive it as many times as you like…

I can totally relate to any worries or niggles you may have about having a your very own professional family photography session at home or somewhere special to you.

We all know how hard is it to get just one NICE photo of your own kids. And lets not get started on getting a decent photo of us with our kids…

Having me simply come and hang out with you is the only way of capturing those personalities without the need to pose.

It’s all about capturing your real life as it is right now…

“it was such a pleasure for you to come and hang out with us for the day.

I just love how ‘real’ the pictures are – even the the ones with Ava-Violet being grumpy.

This is our ‘life’ not some sugar-coated version that sometimes we would prefer the world to see and I love it!

My name is Charlene (Charlie to my husband and ‘Mama’ to Paisley). I’m Mum who so happens to be really good and blending in to family life with my camera!

If you’d like to find out a little more about me click on my slightly embarrassed face.

This was taken during family celebrations for Paisley’s 4th birthday. She wasn’t massively keen on the enthusiastic ‘happy birthday’ singing from the restaurant staff.

See, real moments like these are wonderfully honest aren’t they?

It also took 3 attempts to get the snot, tears and chocolate hand prints out of that white shirt….
