I love taking photographs.

It's really that simple.

I inherited a love of photography from my Dad, and have had a camera in my hands since the age of 12.  Or 11.  10?  It was a while ago for sure.  I currently find myself living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, in Portland, Oregon. It almost reminds me of England, where I grew up. Almost. The weather does at least.

Natural. Candid. Custom.

No awkward poses, forced situations or complicated set ups. I specialise in family portrait photography that offers an alternative to the traditional studio based experience.

Quite simply, I aim to photograph your family the way you see them.

I am based in beautiful Portland, Oregon. I cover the Pacific Northwest, and will travel throughout Oregon and Washington. 

Over the years many nieces and nephews, family and friends helped me develop an affinity for taking photos of children and families. I remain a kid at heart and find it easy to put children at ease with a big smile and a calm, friendly nature. A shared love of dinosaurs and robots with my subjects often helps!

I consider it a privilege to capture a family bond in a photograph and I find it incredibly rewarding providing quality images to families. My favourite portraits are often candid, I strive to photograph natural moments and honest expressions of joy while capturing the unique personality of your family. 

Cheers!
