Are you Ready to Schedule a Documentary Family Photo Session?
FAMILY COMES FIRST - Recently, some of our England 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, Gloucestershire family photographers who are available right now. Find yours today!

Hi, I’m Nina, busy mum of two and fiercely passionate documentary photographer. In my career both as a photographer and picture editor I have won awards, commissioned some of the world’s top photographic talent and photographed some extraordinary people both in the UK and overseas. I’m driven by the power of photography to capture and preserve the magic in everyday moments. My real-life family photos show not just what your family looks like but more poignantly, what it feels like to be you at a particular moment in time. When we look back at our lives in years to come, what could be more special than seeing our memories reflected back at us in a way that feels truly authentic? When I’m not stumbling over piles of Lego / frantically pushing my two daughters out of the door for the school run, you will find me drinking a strong black coffee, escaping to an art exhibition, trying my best to read a good book without being interrupted or planning my next adventure in my 80s camper van. Get in touch if you’d like to start the conversation about capturing the story of your family life.
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.
I’m Alex and I’m a multi-award-winning photographer, husband to an amazing wife, and father to a beautiful daughter. Currently living in the beautiful Worcestershire countryside. I’ve been doing this for several years now but I still feel incredibly fortunate that I get to take photographs full time for a living, and I absolutely love shooting documentary wedding & family photography. This isn’t a job to me, it’s a passion! I absolutely love documenting real family life, whether it's my own or my clients. This photojournalistic style of family photography is about capturing all the wonderful things that make your family story so unique. No posed group shots in matching sweaters here! My job is to photograph you guys doing what you do best, being a family. Think of me as a friendly fly on the wall, with a camera, and a beard. I offer several different photography packages, from quick 2-hour mini-sessions to a full 'Year In The Life' documentary package. So whether at your home or on location, these sessions will capture what real family life is all about. The laughter and love, the tears and tantrums. Real, genuine, and honest images that are yours.
Gloucestershire Outdoor Family Photography
Even in an age of restrictions and limitations, you can safely enjoy a photo shoot in an outdoor location with small groups of people or families. Your FPJA Gloucestershire family photographer can easily capture candid moments of the kids playing and interacting from a safe distance. These days, outdoor sessions are often the best option for genuine photographs, because people of all ages feel more comfortable and casual while they are outside and unrestricted. In these large, open spaces, you and your family can simply spend time together doing your typical routine while your photographer focuses on the art of storytelling.

Gloucestershire Birth Sessions at Home or Hospital
The birth of your child is an experience that is filled with both beauty and chaos. It’s a moment in time that you won’t want to forget, yet it’s an experience in which the details may fade away in the coming weeks, months and years. To capture the first moments in which you meet your baby and those first special hours together, you should enlist the help of a Gloucestershire documentary birth photographer. An experienced family photographer who specializes in documentary birth sessions will be able to capture your labor journey, the birth experience and the immediate reaction that you have when you see your baby’s face for the first time — all while respecting your space. The right photographer will be able to use discretion while focusing on the fleeting moments that you will want to remember from your birth experience. Whether you plan to give birth at home or at the hospital, you can book a documentary birth session with a professional reportage-style birth photographer.
