I’m Charlie, a natural-light documentary style photographer based around Bradford-on-Avon, Bath and beyond. I have two young children and that is what has inspired my work and style of photography – relaxed, fun and full of adventure. No forced smiles or studio backdrops, only the great outdoors and cosy home shoots. I have always found that any form of exploring, be it reading, painting or climbing a tree, is when the real joy can be seen on the faces of children, and in turn the parents seeing their kids truly enjoying themselves.
I specialise in documenting authentic family life in a natural and relaxed way. Regardless of the size of your family we can schedule a session at a location of your choice – at home, the local park, your favourite woodland walk or another special family location and we all have some fun. It’s all very relaxed and the aim is to capture your beautiful family making memories that you can cherish for years to come.
I cover Bath, Bristol, South Gloucestershire and Wiltshire and I’d love to capture your family portraits.
I offer family, newborn, maternity sessions and larger family gatherings and celebrations. Please take a look at my work and get in touch if you’d like me to capture your family memories.
A photograph is a snippet of a moment frozen in time that you can then revisit for years to come. This is an investment you will not regret!
Having worked as a lighting cameraman for 20 years I’m particularly interested now in capturing light & movement in still images.
I feel my background gives me a unique perspective.
As a father of two boys I have also developed a love of photographing children in their natural environment.
Hello, I’m Andrew. I live just outside of Bath with my family and I’m a father of three daughters, so I know how fleeting these days are. My photographic style is very natural and documentary. I also encourage a sense of adventure within my photoshoots – there’s nothing stiff and formal about me or the images I create! Take a look at my website or get in touch to find out more.
Hello! Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know me!
My name is Jess. And I am a documentary family photographer from Bath, Somerset. And to put it simply, I adore photographing people. Babies, children, adults, elderly people, you name it, whoever you are, I want to take your picture.
I live with my husband, my beautiful 3 year old son Edward and of course we mustn’t forget our feisty cat Agatha, who is a little forgotten now since Edward arrived (sorry Ags!).
After I became a Mum I didn’t realise I would find so much inspiration in all the smaller life moments with my child; the ordinary, day to day stuff. And after only a few months into my new motherhood journey I had this urge to document our real life, in all its gritty, raw, struggling beauty. Every day, ordinary, mundane life. So that one day I can look back and know exactly what our life was like at that period of our lives. Not us posing in a studio or with a scenic back drop, wearing beautiful outfits with freshly washed hair. No enhancements to try and make our lives look ‘better’ or our family to look ‘picture perfect’. A real snapshot of a real family living their actual life.
I wanted us on our sofa lounging around as we do so often. I wanted images of us making our breakfast in our pajamas and the mess of thrown scrambled eggs on the floor courtesy of our two year old. I wanted images of the daily furor of getting him dressed and wrangling a tooth brush in his mouth for a few seconds. I wanted images of the exhausting mission to get out the door in the morning. I wanted our real expressions of boredom, frustration, upset and sadness. But also of genuine joy, hilarity, laughter, huge bear hugs, love, and contentment. And kisses, so many kisses for our little boy.
My approach is a mixture of documentary and fine art portraiture to create a series of beautiful images that tell the story of your family. I promise you will feel at ease in my company and there will be zero awkward posing. There is so much beauty in normal life. Lets create some art together.
I’m a natural light photographer living in Bath with my husband and our two daughters, and I love photographing people.
There’s something so special about capturing a moment, no matter how seemingly mundane or ordinary, and being able to treasure that forever. How seeing it puts you right back to that second. It’s the little details that I always try hard to photograph; a newborn’s grip around it’s father’s thumb, a mother’s outreached arms, scuffed trainers or messy plaits; a passing smile, a loving gaze.
For family sessions, I mostly shoot outside, where children can run around and be themselves. No studios or forced smiles. Newborn sessions tend to take place at home, where I can capture the magic of those first days together and weddings are all about the love. I aim to capture the moments between you and your partner, as well as all the happiness from your family and friends.
I want to photograph you being you, and the magic of those everyday moments.
I help everyday mums, wives, career women look and feel beautiful and have a day that’s all about them with a modern portrait experience that can be enjoyed alone or as a shared experience with your mum, sisters, best friends or family.
Natural, authentic & heartfelt family photography.

My passion is photographing people and telling stories through images, whether it be at home, at work, with pets or at play.
I love gaining an insight into the varied lives of my clients and making connections with them, as I work instinctively and intuitively to capture their family relationships and special moments. My approach is simple and reflective – shooting in beautiful locations using natural light, reflectors and rapport (plus a sense of humour) to create memorable images. From the first few days for my newborn shoots, to documenting childhood and events marking milestones in life, as well as editorial, commercial and corporate photography, all my shoots are bespoke to capture each clients own special images.
I also hold my ‘Family Portrait Days’, an amazing opportunity to have your own 45minute family/child photoshoot with no session fee charge (I just charge a £25 booking fee which is redeemable against your order). These are always in beautiful locations just on a date and place chosen by me.
I live in Bath and work both close to home and further afield.
