It doesn’t matter how beautiful they are: most women are self-conscious about booking a family photography session. This is particularly true for new mums (and not so new mums) No need to list what part of our bodies we might not feel comfortable with, it’s different for each one of us but I know you probably shy away from the camera whenever it’s pointed at you.

The first day of school or indeed the start of a new academic year is a wonderful milestone to capture.

I have been capturing family moments for as long as I have been a mother myself and the summer holidays are a brilliant time to organise a photoshoot.

I have 3 top tips for your summer holidays photoshoot so you can get the very best out of your day.
Studio photography will always have a place in the industry. Because it is a controlled environment it is protected from unpredictable elements such as the weather and sunlight, for some photographers this makes it a preferable option.

In this post, I want to help you capture those moments even when your subjects or the environment prove to be difficult.
