I sometimes feel that I'm more of a storyteller than a photographer - I love that I can document real family-life moments and preserve them so that they can be relived time and time again.
Family photography has been around since the early days of photography and although my style is less formal than the first daguerreotype photographs, the purpose of them still remains the same. Technology may have changed the way we produce and store our photographs but there is nothing comparable to the tactile pleasure of holding and turning through the pages of a beautiful photo album - they really are the best way to hold and preserve your family's story.
I work exclusively with Folio Albums, a small company based in Yorkshire, to produce my fine art albums. They combine traditional methods of manufacture with new technologies to create the most beautiful photo albums. Using the finest papers and a menu of cover options that include the softest leathers, silks and cottons, they are so gorgeous you'll find it impossible to put down.
If that all sounds too good to be true, Folio Albums are also produced with the highest consideration to the environment; only local suppliers are used where possible as well as ink pigments that use less toxic chemicals than in traditional photographic printing, they also ensure that their shipping is carbon neutral too. The albums come in a bleach-free cotton sleeve to protect them for future generations to enjoy and are presented in a keepsake box made of recycled materials.
To see how these beautiful albums are made by hand in my native Yorkshire - check out the following video...
After our photo shoot I will work with you to design your family's storybook fine art album which can include around 30 to 60 photographs from your session. Choose from a range of sizes: 6x6, 8x8, 10x10 or 12x12 inches, cover material and text that can be engraved or 'on the cover - the perfect finish to your heirloom-quality album.
