Beautiful, joyful family photography with real emotion and connection.

I'm Hannah, a family photographer in Oxford, U.K. My photography style and approach to my work creates beautiful, creative images full of joy, emotion and connection.

An outdoor or home session with me is a relaxed, organic experience which captures authentic expressions and your unique family dynamic.

Come, grab a coat, some snacks and several changes of clothes (because, let's face it, you've got kids and it's UK weather) and take a portfolio tour with me!

“I cried when I saw these. Thank you for capturing my family for me. You made the experience so wonderful and the photos are stunning. I don’t think I could part with any of them.”

Family Photography in Oxfordshire | MY PHILOSOPHY

My outdoor and home family photography sessions are perfect for families who want more than 'say cheese'. It's about capturing genuine smiles, laughter, hugs, emotion and the little in-between moments that show you and your family as you are, now. We'll create memories in pixels and print that will make your heart sing and can be passed down between generations.

My sessions are relaxed and flow organically. There's lots of chat, and you and your small ones will have time to get used to a giant lens being pointed at you. I've spent my whole professional life putting people at ease in front of a camera - you're in good hands.

As a lifestyle photographer, I don't put my families into stiff poses, instead I offer a little direction and prompts that will get you doing what I need you to be doing to get the best angles and expressions. This is when my clients get the images they love - when everyone lets their guard down and authentic smiles and joy radiate. The result? Your images feel authentically 'you', and, when you get them up on a wall or into a book, they'll remind you of a simply awesome day.

Part of capturing this magic comes from getting to know my families a little bit beforehand and each family receives a pre-session questionnaire and there's the chance to discuss potential locations, and your clothing before the session.

Your images are edited and retouched in my signature style and are delivered in a dedicated, password-protected online gallery for you to browse. A selection of digital images are included in every package and professional prints can be ordered straight from your gallery - no need to mess around uploading files!

My families often ask me...

What do we do if it rains on our outdoor session day?

We're in the UK, so let's not kid ourselves. It rains! Sadly my equipment doesn't do too well in the wet, so I usually check weather forecasts about 48 hours in advance and offer an at-home shoot or postponement if it looks bad.

How long will it take to get my images?

I know that it can be hard to wait to see your images, but rest assured a lot goes on behind the scenes to prepare them for viewing! The images from your session are curated, edited and retouched before they're uploaded to your online viewing gallery. You'll receive your gallery within 3 weeks of our session.

Do you offer prints with any of your packages?

When your session is finished, you will receive an online brochure for prints and products which can be ordered through your online gallery and are sent directly to you.

Prints ordered through me are from a professional lab and are the only way to guarantee that my careful edits and colours are preserved. Your framed prints will last for years, even on a window sill in full sun.

I also offer complimentary gallery wall or album design.

Do you do Gift Vouchers?

I do indeed! Any of my family sessions can be bought as a gift, and the vouchers come presented in a beautiful gift box with ribbon for a supplementary cost of £4.95. Contact me to buy one.

What editing or retouching do you do?

Every image you see in your viewing gallery has been given a treatment in my signature style - this includes adjustments to colour tone, exposure and contrast. I then do some light skin retouching and edit out any distracting background objects.
