Family Photography Prices 

We love families, we have one of our own! If you ever have followed us on Instagram you’ll see our crazy bunch. We love all the moments that happen throughout the day and make sure a camera is always to hand. We’re both really passionate about what we do and see the connections others have and want to share that with you. In all honesty it’s absolutely exhausting being part of a family with so much going on all of the time, but it’s some of the best times as well.

Our family portraits capture you in your home, relaxed and comfortable and we can go for a short walk and be free outdoors.  These sessions are for the whole family or just for children, because sometimes it’s just for the little ones.

Either way we want this to be time for you to be yourselves and to connect. Our lives can be so fast paced these days, we want to help you slow down and enjoy your time together. Capturing who you are naturally and outside in the elements creates lasting memories and photographs for you to sit and look at for years to come.


Documentary family photography sessions.


These sessions are a documentary based as in they are aimed at capturing those moments that happen throughout the day, that you share as a family. It might be a certain look or an embrace, tears or laughing till there is tears! Whatever it might be, this is your everyday and we’d love to be there to capture it. It’s very informal and doesn’t require any of that awkward posing together. It’s great to have an activity that you could do together like cooking a meal, playing a game or just being together in your home. It’s not posed but we will help you with directions if you’re unsure. By the end of it you won’t notice when the pictures are being taken.

‘One Sunday morning James came along to capture our everyday. These are the real stories that happen, our natural routines ...that may soon be forgotten. It is a strange thing to see your ordinary life make such a beautiful series of work.

For anyone else interested in family photography - I am always talking about and recommending James and Jo. The way they shoot is relaxed, natural and real. The boys were super comfortable (almost too comfortable - getting up to their usual antics!). Their work is always beautifully emotive, the type that really stops you in your tracks. Thank you guys, I’m forever inspired by your talents.’ - LOUISE
