Family photography

  • 800

I used to be a wildlife filmmaker and photographer for the BBC but on the 7th April 2011 my passion for wildlife photography was overtaken – this was the day I became a Dad and my love of family photography took hold. And it turns out, the skills for documenting animal behaviour with a long lens also come in handy when taking pictures of children. The only difference being that I don’t have to be in camouflage!

I take documentary-style photographs and will travel to your home, garden or any other location you choose.  We can play with balloons and bubbles, make daisy chains, explore a nature pond or hunt for bugs – what ever it takes to make it a fun experience for your children and get wonderful shots. Allowing children to be free to run around and play, lends towards much more natural photos and captures their true spirit. My photos reflect a precious time in their lives and are deeply personal and unique to each family. If your home or garden doesn’t appeal, I can suggest stunning outdoor locations such as summer meadows or bluebell woods.

Baby shoots also lend themselves really well in the home. I’m able to capture intimate moments between parent and child and preserve the memory of those early new-born days. By allowing up to three hours in I can work around, feeding, sleeping and nappy changes – which can often be unpredictable factors.

As well as children’s photography, I can be booked to photograph portraits, events & exhibitions and corporate/commercial shoots.

We would heartily recommend George for a family photo shoot.
We would heartily recommend George for a family photo shoot. Very relaxed and patient, George was able to get all of the children to engage with him and the photos which resulted really show their characters. If you have endured a painful, very formal studio session in the past, give George a go - it is a very different experience. (Keith, Chewton Mendip)

Thank you, George!
George took some really beautiful photos of our little one when he was just 6 weeks old. He was so patient and somehow managed to get some lovely shots despite the constant feeding, nappies and sleeping! (Susie, London)

Beautiful pics and great fun!
George took some incredible pictures of our kids, he has a very relaxed style and after some initial posing he caught them up close and unawares, with stunning effect. Highly highly recommend George for photos of your little ones you will treasure forever Xx - thank you.  (Maddy, Wrington)
