I have a natural, creative documentary style. It is always my goal to capture natural expression and your individual personality in both an honest and creative way. I will document natural moments and interactions between family members whilst also incorporating colours, textures and beautiful light in my images to make vibrant, dynamic, modern family photography.

My goal is always to capture your children’s natural expressions, quirks, personalities and spirit in a way that shows who they are, whether that be a shy, contemplative, energetic or a wild and naughty personality!


“The photos Kirsty took of our family are the best we have ever seen. The quality of the photos is outstanding. We gave many of our family and friends prints of the images for Christmas and everyone commented on how lovely they are. We are absolutely delighted with the images and the service.”



You don’t want to worry about what you look like. You want to feel comfortable in front of the camera trusting that your photographer will capture you at your best. I’m not interested in fake grins and posing people!  I love getting the best out of people and achieve this by getting to know you, listening closely to your preferences and helping you to relax and really enjoy the photography. It is always my goal to tell your family story with a set of images that you truly love.

On-Location Yorkshire Family Photography

I bring the photography to you. Photographing you in your in and around your own home or on-location in familiar surroundings puts the photography in the context of your own lives, making it relaxed, stress-free and authentic. My photography sessions are designed to be spontaneous, creative and fun in order to capture natural expression and your personality. If you wish we can start at your own home or meet at a location of your choice, such as a beach, park, forest, or urban environment
