Somerset family and portrait photography

For me it's definitely the aspect of photography that I love most. I spent the first 12 years of my career as a successful commercial and press photographer, when I started my own family (twins!) I barely had time to think about branching out from my usual clients.


It's a real pleasure now to combine the two things that I love most; family and photography.


Location and lifestyle sessions are a wonderful way to spend an hour or so in your favourite place, having fun and capturing some beautiful natural images.  Perfect for creating a book of happy memories to treasure, and with some gentle direction to find the most flattering light and background, I will encourage you and your family into position for some natural group portraits ... sessions are gentle and fun aimed at creating natural family photos for you to treasure forever.

Last year was a big year for me as I opened my photo studio in Ilminster town centre. It's the perfect place for children's portraits and small group family photography.


My studio is equipped with a selection of beautiful backgrounds and (most exciting for me!) some fantastic lights enabling me to create the most flattering of photographs.


Family photography starts early these days with newborn baby photography from 3-14 days old, moving through special birthdays, siblings, engagements and anniversaries ... all are catered for.

My studio is also planning themed taster mini-sessions throughout the year. These are fun and very affordable ... a great way to get your youngsters used to the camera; prints from the popular Christmas mini sessions are a great idea for Christmas presents!
