Family photography in Lancashire

Time flies whether your a new little family trying to find your new routine, an older family who have mastered the art of taming the brood or somewhere in the middle of it all. I’m a Lancashire family photographer (covering LancashireManchester, Cheshire and beyond) and I’d love to capture the real moments you share together as a family. 

I know what you’re thinking “i don’t like my photograph being taken”. Honestly not a lot of people actually do like their photograph being taken. But that is what makes a lifestyle family photoshoot perfect for you. 

A lifestyle photoshoot is not a typical white backdrop posey photoshoot. It’s a trip to the park, going on a walk or even baking together at your family home. I photograph the everyday moments which make your family your family.



I also specialise in lifestyle newborn photography. Much like my family lifestyle photography it is not in front of a white screen or harsh studio lights. It is in the comfort of your own home. I love shooting at your family home rather than a studio as it is more intimate and it makes the photographs much more personal. 

TIP: I understand that no home is perfectly tidy 24/7 and I’d like your home to look like your home. It’s better if your house looks some what tidy as sometimes mess can be distracting in the backgrounds of photographs (unless you’re ok with the mess in the background- it’s just I’m sadly unable to photoshop it out).

My family photoshoots take place either in your home or a location of your choice (for example in a park, the woods, a fields -whatever takes your fancy really).

Newborn lifestyle photoshoot

Newborn lifestyle photoshoot 1-2 hours ( I give a little longer with my newborn photography so we are able to work around feeding and nap time). For newborn photography I would recommend having this photographed at your family home as this is where your little one will be most relaxed. You could split the session and have half of it in your family home and half on a local walk.

What to wear for your lifestyle photoshoot in Lancashire?

We all have them photographs which you look back on and think “what the hell was I wearing?” Yep, you know the ones? Well here I have a couple of useful tips for you, when you are planning your outfits for your lifestyle photoshoot. 

*disclaimer I am not a fashion icon or stylist…yet?*

  1. Be comfortable and confident in what you are wearing. 

There is nothing worse than wearing something which is irritating so make sure you are wearing something that you are able to move in and makes you feel comfortable for your relaxed family photoshoot. 

  1. Stay away from neon coloured clothes. 

As I use natural light sometimes the colours can reflect onto your face. 

  1. Coordinate your colours, don’t go matchy matchy.

The 80/90’s trend of siblings must match clothes has finally gone ( I was a victim to this, thanks mum and dad). Try and pick colours on the same colour pallet. (For lifestyle newborn photography I highly recommend staying along the lines of pastel and neutral tones).  

  1. Avoid busy patterns, writing  and logos.

These all can be very distracting in photos. Also as much as you might love that t-shirt with Iron Man on, sadly it will date very quickly.
