I love it when people celebrate being a family. In this ever-changing world around us it’s too easy to lose sight of how truly important the family unit is to us all. For me to be invited to come and take a snapshot into your history and legacy is a real privilege and honour. And with so many clients returning year after year, I get the pleasure of seeing everyone grow up.
‘Relaxed’, ‘At Ease’ and ‘Fun’. These are the words past clients use most when they describe their shoot with me. I don’t capture any fake grins in my photography. Instead I use techniques from my vast experience and training to draw out your natural and happy expressions.
It’s my role as a specialist to photograph families and deliver beautiful images that all that everyone will love. Images that will carry truly wonderful memories through time, and that can be passed on to generations to come.
My photography shoots with families can take up to two hours of time but can end earlier once I am satisfied with what I have captured.
I offer two styles of Family Portrait Experiences. The ‘Studio Shoot’ and the ‘Location Session’. The first is done in a studio type environment. I have a small studio space not too far from Maidenhead specifically designed to accommodate this style, but if preferred, I can bring a small set up to your home.
‘The Location’ session is centered around a location familiar with you as a family. A favourite walk or local area of beauty, or even your garden can make for a beautiful backdrop. It is possible that If both the location and time permit, we can combine both styles during your experience no extra charge.
My ‘Family Photography Experience’ starts at just £49 and includes the session fee as well as a complimentary 10×8 mounted print. In addition, you will receive the accompanying digital image free of charge, perfect for social media and regular prints. Larger wall art, extra prints as well as albums are available and can be considered during your grand reveal.
A ‘Family Photoshoot’ experience can be such a fantastic gift idea for friends or loved ones. Gift vouchers can be customised to any package or budget and can be personalised for your chosen recipient.
Your finished gift certificate will be printed on gorgeous soft cream wove premium paper, sealed with wax, and presented in a matching cream envelope. Ready to be delivered by yourself or popped in the post by us.

James has an extraordinary knack of getting children to engage in the process. The smiles shine out from the pictures and are a fitting reminder of a wonderfully happy day.
Fantastic photographer, totally relaxed and enjoyable, and no hard sell what so ever.
James did a fantastic job as our photographer. He was very flexible and got a good understanding of what we wanted. On the day he was brilliant and had a fantastic calm atmosphere that made us feel really relaxed. The photos he produced captured our love for each other and with our friends.
James is friendly, professional and very good at keeping an excitable mother of the bride calm. He also helped with his fantastic sewing skills when a bridesmaids dress needed fixing! His photographs are beautiful and really captured our day in the most amazing way
James made us feel at ease, even my husband who hates having his photo taken .They were all natural and lovely. My son wasn’t in the best mood on the day, but James made him laugh and caught his smiles at just the right moments. The photos are wonderful, something I’m so glad I did.
James was polite, professional and took some amazing photos, as well as some intimate shots during the ceremony whilst remaining unobtrusive. He is very good at making you feel relaxed and at ease in front of the camera.
Fantastic, friendly service. Made the whole family feel at ease. Spectacular photos would highly recommend. Excellent value for money and a lifelong memory created.
I have been using James for my Kitchen Photography for some time and he has been brilliant. Not only are the photos amazing, but he get’s them edited and delivered to me SO fast. Very polite when dealing with my clients too.
An absolute fab photographer: James did our wedding and he is AMAZING at what he does! James is very organised and creative, and pre-plans photo shoots which is so handy on the day. We didn’t need to think about guest being in the pictures as he did all that for us. I have some wonderful pictures which I have framed.
I’ve had a number of fantastic experiences with James, and he has been brilliant each time. They say you should never work with children or animals and James exceeds at both. He has a wonderful ability to put everyone at ease. I would highly recommend him for any form of work, personal or commercial.
Very professional, thorough and helpful. He captured everyone and everything on our big day. And we couldn’t have wished for more. Beautiful photos.
James was brilliant. He got on with his own thing and the photos are brilliant. He was really helpful as I wasn’t sure what to expect from the day. The products he had to offer were so much nicer than what other photographers had. The finished photos are brilliant and I would use him again definitely.
Thank you so much, the photographs are lovely. You made it very relaxing and that is why they have come out so well. Forgotten it was even raining now!
James went the extra mile to make sure everything was covered for our wedding day. James knew exactly what we wanted on the day and just got on with it.
Exceptional quality of service. James was so subtle but we didn’t even notice he was there which made a huge difference, especially to my mum who hates having photos taken. James captured amazing moments that we would never have seen otherwise.
The images came out amazing and I’m so happy with the results, James really knew what he was doing and this made the session even better! I cannot recommend him highly enough.
James was very professional on the day and managed to keep things going to plan. The album and USB are fab and we couldn’t have asked for better.
We got James to photograph our wedding and nothing was too much trouble for him. James took on board all our requirements and our photographs & albums were beautifully presented, thanks.
