"... the most beautiful things in life are not things. They're people, and places, and memories, and pictures. They're feelings and moments and smiles and laughter" This is my WHY...the reason I do what I do.
Photographs By Shirley
I am a family photographer, "Capturing the Moment" and creating memories which will last a lifetime.
I live in Bedfordshire where there are numerous beautiful settings for your family photo shoot but if you live further afield I am happy to travel; contact me for details. I love 'Capturing the Moment', wherever that can be found, so do contact me if you would like me to capture those special relationships and interactions in a natural environment; this is my specialism. I will work with you to capture moments which are so precious.
Family Lifestyle Photography is a very specific genre of family photography, more details can be found on my

Why choose me to capture your treasured family images?
My sessions are not simply a photo shoot, they are a family experience; a special time for loved ones to play, have fun and take time out together. Photographs have the ability to take you back to a time and place, and to bring back the emotions surrounding that moment. When I take your photograph I want to give you more than just a beautiful image.
I am an accomplished photographer; I have exhibited Nationally and Internationally and been awarded medals and awards for my work, most notably ARPS from the Royal Photographic Society and AFIAP in recognition of the number of images accepted into International exhibitions. I have held solo exhibitions at the Royal Photographic Society Headquarters in Bath and at Howard Hall in Letchworth and also exhibited in a number of local galleries. More details about me and my work can be found here.
I love what I do and consider it a huge privilege to be trusted to 'capture those moments' for your family, taking my responsibilities very seriously. This means that you can relax and enjoy your session knowing you are in good hands. Would you like to book me? Click here to find out more and reserve your session.
My inclusive packages start from £150 - I call them "inclusive" because you will be able to download all images from your password protected gallery at no extra charge, I guarantee at least 40 images.This means you do not have to choose between any of the many special moments I will capture. Of course, I do offer the opportunity to have them printed, made into books or presented in beautiful presentation boxes but I promise there will be no hard sell...and you still have all the images to share or print as you wish.
