Capturing Your Family & Pets Beautifully in Kent, London and Surrey

On Location

What better way to photograph your family than in the environment you love? We might go to the park, or perhaps to the beach. If the weather is not in our favour, we can take photos in your home and then venture outside when it is nicer.  


A photo studio provides a lovely environment to  capture your family with controlled lighting and guaranteed nice weather! They are perfect to capture beautifully lit images in a variety of styles. We use a studio on the outskirts of Maidstone. 

Perfect Gift

We all struggle what to give grandparents as a gift, so why not a beautifully framed image of their grandchildren they can treasure? Alongside the digital files, you can also order beautiful prints directly from the gallery from one of the UK’s finest labs. 

Gift Certificates

Are you looking to give someone in your family or a friend a present? Then why not treat them to a family portrait session (the adults do not have to take part if camera shy!). They range from £50 and come beautifully presented



I believe that everyone should be able to afford beautiful photography of their family and pets, especially at the current time. That is why I have made my pricing incredibly simple

There is a standard £100 session fee which secures your 1-2 hour time slot and date. This is non-refundable and includes a free 9×6″ print of your choice. If it is an outdoor location shoot and the weather is very bad (raining) then you may reschedule.

After your shoot the images are uploaded to a private gallery on my website for you to share with your family and no pressure or obligation to buy. 

Should you wish to have images printed, I have partnered with one of the very best labs in the country with a variety of options including fine art prints and canvases.


Thank you so much. They are amazing. They had lots of fun. Emily didn’t want “fun” Dave to leave!

Beautifully captured of what is obviously such a gorgeous relationship. You did the same for mine and I. Treasured moments captured to spark memories. I’m always thankful to you .

About Me

I have been a professional photographer for 15 years working globally. I initially only photographed weddings, but during the last recession published a book called “Wedding Photography – A Guide to Posing”. This was to help all the new photographers entering the industry, but more importantly so that the bride and grooms had higher quality images to cherish. The book went onto become a best seller within its category. 

I then ventured into sports and food photography. This saw me being selected as one of just a few freelance photogrpahers in the UK being awarded full accreditation for the Olympic Games in Rio. I will also be in Tokyo in 2021. 

My approach to family photography is that it should be fun for the kids and your dogs. I try to keep them engaged and interested, willing to have more photos taken. It is always nice if parents are in a few shots but is not essential if you are camera shy!

The sessions last around 1 hour and you can have changes of clothes in that time. If it rains, we can re-schedule with no problem. 

Once booked, I block that time slot for you and it is all yours. I do keep to a tight schedule so please be punctual. 

My pet sessions can be studio based in your own home so can be conducted at any time of the year.
