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.
Whether this be mum and dad wanting those adorable photos of their children they will forever love and cherish. Or the children themselves having something to help remember those carefree days of childhood.
As a child who was painfully shy, I had a stutter (thanks to my dyspraxia) until I started senior school. I had difficulty pronouncing the letter L so you can all imagine the joys I had trying to say my name!
So I can emphasise and relate with your kids who might not want their photo taken or are too shy to smile for the camera.
So all this is incorporated into my relaxed approach to photography. I aim to make these photo sessions fun so not only will you have amazing photos you'll have great memories from the photo session too. So significantly less stress for you and your family.
Family is also really important to me as the oldest grandchild I was often tasked with entertaining my younger cousins and now I'm playing the favourite uncle to my adorable two year old niece. Suffice to say I've always been good with kids. As well as the lifestyle family and children's photography I specialise in I can also be found helping my younger sister photograph her amazing textile pieces.
If you like the sound of this then I'd love to hear from you and let's get this photo session booked.

Where we'll arrange a photo viewing session so you'll be able to sit back and watch a slideshow of your images and relive all those emotions again.
