Welcome, your photo session should be fun, relaxed and stress free.

So I take a child centred approach to photography where your children are encouraged to run amok and have as much fun as they can. My newborn and family sessions are designed to take the stress out of photography while capturing beautiful images you'll be proud to display in your home. 

A one hour lifestyle session takes place in the comfort of your own home for a newborn session or in a stunning location for an outdoor family session.

Lifestyle Newborn Sessions

Your newborn is amazing but with sleepless nights and constant feeds I know a newborn can be tiring and stressful too. The last thing you really want to do is to travel all the way to a studio for a photography session especially if you've a toddler to wrangle as well.
Instead let me come to you.
My lifestyle newborn sessions focus on the love and connection between you and your newborn. If you’re looking for natural photos of your baby and you hate the idea of cheesy props you've come to the right place.

"We had a newborn photoshoot with Luke and would definitely recommend, he is a brilliant photographer. Luke came to our home which was a lot more relaxed than going to a studio and it meant our dog could get in the shots too! The photos were natural and captured us as a family. Luke was great with our baby and made us feel comfortable, as he was so patient when the inevitable crying started! The photos have come out lovely and speak for themselves."

Lifestyle Family Sessions

There are never any forced smiles or been told to look at the camera waiting awkwardly to be given the all clear the photo has been taken. Instead the session are designed to be as enjoyable as possible so by the time we've finished you'll be surprised it's already been an hour.
A family photo session gets everyone involved. Too often there is always someone missing from the family photos. Usually mum who along with making sure everyone is enjoying themselves is documenting it all too.

Hey, I'm Luke

I'm a lifestyle portrait photographer specialising in family and newborn photography. I'm based in Staffordshire and cover the surrounding areas.

Why do I focus solely on newborn and family photography. It's simple, there are numerous reasons but a couple are I love knowing that as families grow older they'll always have something to look back on.

"We recently had a family photo shoot with Luke and had so much fun. It was lovely to be outside in natural surroundings rather than a studio and the kids had lots of room to run around and Luke captured some great natural shots. Lovely experience with some beautiful memories to treasure."
