Looking for a fun family photoshoot in Nottingham?

Life moves fast.

How will you remember yours?


Hi, I’m Dave. I’ve been shooting families in a light-hearted documentary-style in Nottingham and Derby for over five years.

My love of family photography grew through photographing my own extended family and a love of working with children as a primary school teacher for almost 7 years. With five new nieces and nephews, all spread out across the country, I realise how important it is to make the most of the time I have with them and to capture those moments of them growing up in a fun and natural style.

Like me, my photography style is laid back and relaxed. I’ll chat and have fun with the kids, encourage them to have fun, splash in puddles, walk the tightrope along a fallen tree trunk and throw autumnal leaves in the air, capturing the fun and adorable moments as I go.   

Goodbye traditional, unimaginative studio family portraits and cringy poses, hello real documentary family photography in Nottingham.

Sound like your kind of vibe?

We had the best time with Dave strolling through a woodland as he took some cracking photos of myself, my partner & our kids.

I would highly recommend Dave.


So, let’s get to the nitty gritty – the price. I like to keep it simple which is why I just have a single package including your edited images



  • 60-90 minute photo shoot at a beautiful natural location in the Nottingham/ Derbyshire area.
  • 30-40 photos, with full download and printing rights, in an online gallery where you can also purchase prints, frames and other products

Cost = £300


Whilst the family photography package above come with unlimited printing and sharing rights, I realise you’re probably going to want some high-quality prints or frames. If you want to know the exact prices of things before you book feel free to drop me a message. To give you an idea prints start from £2 and frames come in a variety of shapes and sizes & start at £70.


No, I don’t have a studio and am unlikely to ever get one. I love the outdoors & outdoor shoots and shoots in the family home because they give much more real, natural and fun! If you’ve got your heart set on a studio shoot, I know some great local photographers.

Yes of course, but as I’m a documentary-style photographer I tend to keep group photos to an absolute minimum. Your shoot will whizz by and I always find the best shots are the real ones, your kids splashing in the puddles, your dog speeding after that squirrel and your family being themselves.

Your photos will be displayed in an password protected online gallery. You will be able to view, download and, if you choose to, purchase prints or frames. You will have unlimited sharing and printing rights to your photos, so if you want to take them to Boots and get them printed then go for it! Alternatively, we work with a high quality professional grade printing lab if you’re after really high quality prints/ frames.

I know you’ll be itching to see them, so I will edit and share them as quickly as possible. It typically takes me around two weeks to edit and send your final photos.
