I contacted Tara because I was mourning the loss of early childhood from my life – kids grow up way too fast! I wanted to capture the essence of my kid’s spirit but was adamant that it wouldn’t be done in a contrived manner, I wanted artful, wild and free. Tara was down. Her exuberance matched that of my children and our shoot was nothing short of wild, with fireworks, skateboards, smoke bombs and make-up. Through all that, Tara remained casually professional, ensuring we were all safe whilst gently facilitating the shoot. I would have been happy with the shoot based just on the fun that we had, but was blown away by the shots when they arrived. They are already treasured family mementos and I couldn’t recommend Tara highly enough!

My Approach

I believe that making a great family portrait is a process of collaboration between your family, and myself the photographer. I am passionate about creating a comfortable, fun and sincere experience to share with your family. In a familiar and intimate environment, my photographs will capture the genuine personalities and character of your family.

The Consultation

The initial consultation is the perfect opportunity to discuss your vision for the shoot and final artworks, and can take place either in-home or over Skype.  Each personalised consultation is interactive and places paramount importance on your involvement in the creative process and planning of your portrait session.

The Shoot

I am committed to creating a fun, genuine and expressive atmosphere for your family that captures the connections and love that bond you together. I offer three distinctive portrait sessions which can be tailored to your needs; a 4hr Family Life Documentary Session, a 2.5hr Welcome To The World (bump and baby) Session or a 1.5hr Family Lifestyle Session. 

The Reveal

A few days after our shoot I will come back to your home and reveal the images. I will share a selection of the best images and together we will design and style the photographs into finished artworks and bespoke photo journals to complement your home and your family’s narrative.

The Delivery

Once we have completed the image reveal consultation, I will commence production of the artworks. The Delivery of your finished artworks will be within 4-6 weeks and right to your front door.

Do get in touch to find out more about available dates, session styles and product range.
