From ‘bump to baby’, your newborn baby’s first year or even capturing a year of your family life, ‘The Sweetest Year’ collection of family photoshoots has been created just for you.

A honest and natural way to take you right back to a moment, to remind you of the wonderful family journey you’ve been on.¬†


A Year In The Life – Natural Family Photography and Film


They Grow So Fast – Natural Newborn Photography

‘They grow SO fast’, isn’t that what they always say?

Being Mum myself I can certainly confirm it’s true! Despite her still being so little it feels odd thinking she was as tiny as baby Freiya above. Even Freiya looks so grown up comparing her Newborn film and collection of family photographs they have from her ‘Sweetest Year’!

Thankfully we have lots of memories captured from professional photoshoots as well as my own personal family photos (before and after becoming a family photographer and videographer myself).

It suddenly feels very precious to be able to look back at those early years so easily through our printed photos, photobooks and video. They actually get enjoyed, unlike the millions of clips stored on our phones.

I know the value will only increase and those memories will become even more treasured as the years go on…

Photograph The Milestones Along The Way…


Choosing to book a ‘Sweetest Year’ family session collection means you’ll have less to worry about and you can have me there to capture those milestones along the way.

Less worries about missing those video clips of their first steps or first words and sounds with your phone as you’ll have your very own family photographer catching up with you to capture them for you.¬†

But more importantly, you’ll be in those moments too.

You’ll be rewarded by seeing how they gazed at you, how you made them smile and they’ll have these moments to look back on too when they get older…

A Family Photo Wall or A Family Album To Pass Down…?

You’ll be able to choose the perfect ways to help you treasure those moments too.

You choose what you’d love once you’ve seen your very own family photographs and films. As well as ready made collections you can cherry pick your own family items too.

Opt for professional fine art photographs to hang on your favourite wall. Maybe even a family gallery wall on the stairs? Something to make you smile every time you see them.

What about a family heirloom of your own? A gorgeous, bespoke family album to pass down the generations that show off your family life right now?

You remember how special it was finding old family albums your parents had, right…?

A Relaxed Approach To Family Photography

We’ll work together to loosely plan a schedule over the year and figure out what milestones would be the most important for you to capture and want to relive.

As a Mum I know children don’t follow to a schedule and learn and develop in their own pace so that added flexibility is there to help you too!

These family sessions are totally fluid and flexible, should the little one start walking earlier or you decide weaning would be super fun to document at home then we can tweak as we go.

Parenthood In Film – Family Videography

With every Love Gets Sweeter family photoshoot session you also get your very own film. Something a little nicer than a traditional home movie but will still go on to be treasured for years to come as you watch it back to see and hear how life was ‘back then’.

A special heirloom to take you right back to this very moment of family life by not only having family photos but being reminded what life sounded like too.

Maybe even the start of a new story and collection of films as you document your journey as parents…

Fancy Documenting Your Family Life?

If after reading this you’re starting to picture your very own relaxed bump photos, capturing a little bit of life with a newborn and you as new parents and even a few milestones along the way then I’d love to hear from you.

Baby’s first year or ‘Bump To Baby’ is merely a popular choice. You may feel that any year would suit you. Maybe the last year before a new school? Maybe documenting from a big birthday?

No time like the present to make the most of a collection that also brings great value long term.

I’m a documentary family photographer based in Lancashire and travel all over the UK documenting real family life in your family home.

You’ll love my more relaxed, honest approach if you want to document your pregnancy in a more natural way. As well as capture a little bit of what life is like for you right now.
