Family lifestyle photography session in Twickenham


Ann contacted me a few months ago as she wanted to celebrate her daughter’s 1st Birthday with a photography session at her home in Twickenham.  We had a provisional date in the diary but then Amy, her daughter had conjunctivitis so we postponed and so glad that we did as the day that we rescheduled to was such an amazing day!

I am always interested how people find me.  More and more the internet seems to be the way that people do thanks to my new website and journal posts but although Ann found me on a google search she realised that she had seen my work before via a friend of a friend.

Amy, as you can see is a very happy child!  A delight to photograph! Amy did have a little nap when I arrived but I love those moments as I then have the opportunity to take shots of eyelashes…. I love taking shots of eyelashes – something very special about a child’s eyelashes.. I am getting carried away.  As parents we do spend a long time looking at our little ones (mine son is big now) while they are asleep…

For the first part of the photography session we went to the bedroom at the front of the house as it had the most amazing light and I love the images of Amy kissing herself and the smeary mirror! We did laugh so much.

The session then went outside in the shady part of their garden and we just had fun playing with Amy!  Putting hats on her head that were far too big and seeing what she did, time with Mummy (Ann) and Daddy (John) and so as the photography session develops it is like a patchwork quilt as I continue to add all the elements of the story that I need to tell about the family and document them and their affection.





Ann and John are wonderful clients and it has been fabulous working with them!


I have only around 3 family lifestyle weekend photography sessions left this year (more availability during the week if family can take a half day off work) so please contact me to discuss what I can do for you. 07711 391919 or

I do have several “Portraits in the Park” sessions left which take place on a Saturday afternoon and are a fantastic way of updating the family portraits particularly with Christmas on the way!  I know… sorry to mention it!
