Fulfilling the basic human need to remember, and to be remembered.
Experience one of my family portrait or parenthood sessions
Humans are social animals. We need to be around people to thrive and at the epicentre of that, we have our family. Your family are the ones who know you best. You look after each other and keep each others secrets, you hold each other, and you love unconditionally. Our lives are richer when we are loved and when we love back.
Remembering your family, as they are right now, is a precious gift. Photos are one of the best tools to help you tell your story. They are a visual legacy for you and for the generations to come. They stir half forgotten memories, they allow us to glimpse into the past. They show your children that you are proud of them, and that they belong.
My goal is to help you to preserve this moment in time, whether you are after a parenthood session, or a more traditional photo session or a mix of both. I aim to make all of my sessions relaxed, fun and easy. I'll guide you along the way, and you'll end up with some great memories and images that you will treasure for years to come.
"My job as a lifestyle photographer is not to make a family look perfect or even beautiful.
No, my job is to demonstrate to a family that I know they are beautiful and perfect.
That I see the beauty there in the chaos and in the realness."
—ELENA S BLAIR
What is a parenthood session?
In a nutshell? These are stress free sessions that nobody will whine about! I aim to photograph families in a way that shows who they are, without hiding behind forced poses or fake smiles. I find the beauty in the normal, everyday life. It's a glimpse into your family dynamics, your connections, and your personalities.
So how does it work?
We find a location (your home, the beach, the library etc) I get a few formal images out of the way (great for grandparents and those who prefer a more traditional style of photography) then we roll into the lifestyle session part. Feeding kids, toilet training, feeding ducks, reading books, cooking a meal etc.
Whatever you like to do as a family, I want to be there to bottle up some of that magic. Basically, after the first part of the session, you ignore me and I’ll do all the work!
If a parenthood session doesn't sound like you, I also offer more traditional family sessions. These are a little more structured and are popular for sessions with extended family.
