THE STORIES OF US



We all have a story to tell. 


Where will YOUR family stories be 60 years from now? Your phone will be relegated to the chapters of history. Hard drives will have gone . The 'clouds' will have vanished.                            

And - Mummies - are you even IN your own stories? Or are you always the one holding the phone or behind the camera?   One day your children will look for photos of you ....what will they have? Do you actually EXIST in your own family photos?


These sessions are born from three very personal and deep rooted emotions:-

1. a very real fear that we are no longer recording history for the next generations

2. a passion for documentary 'story-telling' photography and

3. the very sad realisation that I do not exist in the stories of my own life: the dogs I loved. The horses I owned. My son growing up.

I was always the "Mama With The Camera". 1000's of images - so few of us together. So few of ME! And how I long to go back in time and hand the camera to someone else and just say 'Can you take one of US?'.


So every 'Story of Us' session comes with absolutely every image taken on the day. And your choice of a beautiful Italian album, a beautiful wooden Print Box or a stunning, iconic wall piece .... for YOU to enjoy today and a part of your legacy for THEIR future.



THE STORY OF US SESSIONS - £695

Three hours of 'life' recorded for all time.

Forget the panic of trying to get everyone to a studio. Forget dressing up and 'making an effort'. Lets just record it as it happens! There is nothing as simple to organise as this type of session.

This is the perfect session for Mama's at home with new babies - the cuddles. The quiet times. The feeding. The new nursery. All the little details - from tiny fingers clasped around yours to the Congratulations cards on the mantlepiece.

Or for grown up Little People - those summer days in the garden. Or the park. Those first steps. Or first bikes. Or just a long lazy afternoon with the paddling pool in the garden.

Or when all of the family are home for a rare weekend and you're all going for a walk after lunch.

A visit to Grandma. Oh....How I WISH I had photos of my Grandma's house. I remember it SO well from those hazy days of childhood and I LOVED being there. Just ask me to meet you there.

A Birthday party?  All those 'super important 'First Friends'.  Jelly. Ice-Cream. Cakes and Mayhem. 

YOUR birthday party?!  All those super important 'Old Friends'. Prosecco. Nibbles.  And Mayhem!

With you and your horses. You and the Dogs. You and your Mum - just doing what makes you YOU.

And if you need more than two hours to capture You being You - just ask!  We can just add extra time at an hourly rate to make sure absolutely NOTHING gets missed!

After your session you will receive EVERY SINGLE IMAGE that we create between us on the day. You will not have to choose. These are STORY sessions  - and it would be like making you choose the words to be included in a book! It wouldn't make sense unless you have them all.

So 'ALL' is exactly what you get.

You do get to choose something though - and that is how you want your story saved. So simply  choose from:-




THE STORY BOOK


 A beautiful - and totally bespoke -  30 page 'Story of Us' album printed and bound in your choice of fabric by the masters of printing - Graphistudio in Italy - and presented in a matching keepsake box
