Documentary Family Photography – Miranda and family in Simonside Woods

Documentary Family Photography is another branch to my business that I really enjoy.  There’s something so special about capturing a little piece of family life, a moment in time, a holiday or an adventure.  I’m capturing childhood memories in the making!

Elizabeth first contacted me because she wanted to arrange a photo session as a gift for her American friends. They were coming over from Florida to the beautiful north east to spend time around Newcastle and Northumberland.

We met at Simonside Car Park Walk near Rothbury in Northumberland, because its such a beautiful location.  Miranda, aged eight was going to be the main focus of the photo session, along with Elizabeth’s dog Willow.  It was such a lovely idea to capture a little piece of her English holiday.  We had loads of fun exploring the pine forest, and Margarita has just the best smile, what a character!  I absolutely LOVE the tender moments I captured between Miranda and her mum Margarita too!  There was even time for a couple of relaxed informal group photos at the end as well!

If you would like a documentary family photo session either at home or out on location, please get in touch – I’d love to hear about your family!

A colourful Engagement Photo shoot on Saltburn Beach – Sam and Craig

 

Sam and Craig chose lovely Saltburn beach for their Engagement Photo session.  Its a place they often go, so it seemed like a great choice for a relaxed and fun photo shoot.  Let’s face it, it is a bit weird having your photo taken, and thats why I love meeting couples before the big day for a practice shoot.  We have a bit of a laugh, go for a wander wherever the mood takes us, and all the nerves about being in front of the camera soon disappear.  Its great on the wedding day when we can just pick up where we left off and capture some amazing images of the two of you together.  I was amazed with the new funky coloured beach huts they have along the promenade, they look so cool!  The beach is amazing and there’s an old Pier too!  Sam and Craig are an amazing couple and I can’t wait for their wedding at Ormesby Hall at the weekend!!!

A Durham Engagement Shoot in the snow – Emma and Richie

Emma and Richie chose to have their Pre-Wedding Engagement photo shoot in beautiful Durham – well I would say that because that’s where I live!!  They chose Durham because Richie popped “the question”, on Old Elvet Bridge, so thats where we started!  I like to keep things really relaxed and to have a bit of fun, capturing the in-between giggles and smiles along the way.  We had a wander about the town, down onto the river banks, and along through the woods.  The weather was freezing and snowy, but that didn’t really matter!  More opportunities for cuddling up close and keeping each other warm!  We ended up in the Cathedral Cloisters, where the first Harry Potter was filmed!  I’m really looking forward to photographing the Wedding at Horton Grange later this year!
