What is Lifestyle Portraiture?

Lifestyle portraiture is a relaxed, intuitive style of photography. Lifestyle shoots are usually shot on location or in a client’s own home with the aim of capturing a sense of authenticity, emotion and connection within a pre-arranged session.  A lovely, unique & personal way to capture beautiful images of families, couples, children and individuals, pets are more than welcome to join in too. 

Each session is bespoke, & tailored to individual requirements, and your photos are likely to have a natural, effortless quality to them.

A breath of fresh air

Enjoy a refreshing experience.

We can create beautiful portrait art of your children simply playing & being their wonderful, beautiful, messy selves at home or on location.

Or perhaps you'd  love some special family photos which capture you naturally on a woodland walk, or we could capture you at home enjoying some heart-felt moments that really mean something to you such as lazy sunday mornings enjoying breakfast in bed, or making pancakes with your little ones. Or if you love yoga you could book yourself a unique yoga portrait shoot & capture how amazing you feel while you sink into your favourite poses while enjoying a lovely sense of calm. 

Book yourself a bespoke lifestyle session & enjoy beautiful artwork for years to come.
