Fun, Natural, Documentary Style Family Photography.

My style of family photography is fun and natural perfect for families who want to freeze time and capture real moments in their daily life.


Using soft natural light in the comfort of your own home, garden or park. I spend some time getting to know you and your family whilst documenting what I see. We can go outside, we can stay home. Your kids can show me their rooms, jump on the bed (if allowed) and show me all their favourite toys.


I find they are more relaxed in their own surroundings (rather than a studio) and see me as a family friend that happens to take photos. They can retreat for quiet time when they’ve had enough. You can give them as many snacks, nappy changes and feeds as they need.

All images (approx 80+) are added to an online gallery to download and share with family and friends

Had an amazing bump/family shoot with Tara. The photos turned out amazing even though I was worried that I am not the most photogenic (she just caught many natural angles which I loved). She was also very good with my 4 year old who is a ball of energy so the fact that we did not just have one but loads of his portraits to choose from, was a lovely surprise. She was also very quick with editing and I had them in front of me within a week. Highly recommend Tara, I can't stop looking at the photos and the only problem I have is choosing which ones I like most ( I like them all!)
