Documentary Family Photography for Brighton and Hove, East Sussex
Are you Ready to Schedule a Documentary Family Photo Session?
FAMILY COMES FIRST - Recently, some of our East Sussex family photojournalists have communicated their readiness to work with families who are able to carry on with their normal life and who want it documented. Family Photojournalist Association professional members offer a distinct and natural style of unobtrusive photography that will capture genuine, candid moments of you, your children, and even extended family enjoying time together...everyone gets in the pictures and you will likely forget the photographer is even there.
The purpose of documentary family photography is to tell a story — your story. You will be able to feel the love that you have for one another in the images. You will see the beauty that results when you are not posed or directed by your photographer to sit in a contrived position and smile on command at the camera. The FPJA has an abundance of top-ranked, Brighton and Hove family photographers who are available right now. Find yours today!

The gal looking through that window into your world. I'm mum to a nearly 18yr old forensic science student, mummy to a 3 yr old climbing princess with goggles on her head and always in a tutu, step-mum to a 10yr old flamingo-obsessed singing mermaid, and an 8yr old footballer! I should probably mention my gorgeous and supportive hubby who can not only fix the electrics but also cooks me delicious dinners and spoils me rotten. Life here is organised chaos, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I have a very relaxed style of photography and like to let things unfold naturally, encouraging children to run around and explore so that I can see them naturally, keeping them engaged and capturing their individual expressions and unscripted moments, this is the point in lifestyle photography. I’m always happy to give gentle direction with any type of portrait and even with family lifestyle sessions, I will generally take a handful of group photos, parent and child portraits, and individual photos of the child/ children, aiming for a mix of a small number somewhat posed as well as the main bigger bulk of the images being un-posed and true. They don’t have to be elaborate affairs, some of my favourite photos were normal, simple, everyday moments - captured beautifully and naturally, using natural light, which I’m known for.
Hi, I'm Kate (my family photography business name is Arrow + Lo) and I have been working as a professional photographer and visual artist for over ten years. I am also a mum to four-year-old twins Rowan (aka Arrow) and Lotta (aka Lo). ‘Beautiful chaos’ is how I often find myself describing family life, and I am all about trying to reflect this through my photography, in an authentic yet striking way. Through a combination of documentary-style images and beautiful portraits, I will create a series of photos that tell a story - your story - at a particular moment in time.
