kind words

It was a real pleasure to have a photo session with Joan. She was absolutely amazing with the children, really put them at ease. The end product was great. I would highly recommend Joan to anyone.

FAMILY photographer bournemouth

Relaxed, natural, fun photography

Being a family Photographer in Bournemouth is a truly awesome job, doing something you love doesn’t happen all the time and I feel beyond lucky! Beautiful and natural family photography is often a difficult thing to come by and I speak from personal experience as well as a family photographer in Bournemouth!

Being a Family Photographer in Bournemouth I have had the absolute pleasure of meeting so many families over last ten years now and I still love to wander around the woods and beaches searching for the most idyllic and perfect spot where you can feel free to gaze lovingly at one another (kids included!).

I pride myself in befriending the children VERY quickly and they never want to leave me after the session, we have such a laugh and I am never worried to make a fool of myself, I will do whatever it takes to get those giggles, just look at my reviews from all my lovely clients!

The info

Candid photos can reveal other aspects of your personalities that can be very hard to capture in a posed shot and these are always a delight to look at as the years go by, showing you how you have grown as individuals and more importantly as a family! I always love to see a family portrait or collage of different shots hanging in pride of place in the family home, where you are all looking relaxed and happy. This is where I can help you most, so have a look at my family blog to see some examples of my work!

I prefer outdoor sessions because the light quality is always superior and more importantly, it is natural, which means the images are sharp and full of colour and depth. I always try to make the shoot fun and relaxing, especially when young children are involved. Indoors can work well too if you have a home with good natural light or a particular spot that captures light well, so if you’d prefer this we could work together to find the best location.

Ready for your Family photoshoot?

because they grow up so fast...

They really do…

My goal if to give you pictures of yourself and the children where their personality is shining through.

 When you book a session with me, it will tailored specifically to you and your unique family. 

The most important thing is for you all to have fun and feel completely relaxed which is what all my clients have to say about me and our session together.

Your photo sessions can happen at your favourite place, outdoors or indoors, you decide! 

So whether you rather stay at home or get outdoors, let’s have some FUN! After all, isn’t it what kids do best?
