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, Hertfordshire family photographers who are available right now. Find yours today!

I am Emily Renier, a calm, sensitive and quirky Belgian-born photographer with a passion for being who we are unashamedly. My commitment is pure and simple - to tell your story sensitively and with humanity. Based in St Albans, Hertfordshire but working across the UK, I produce images and photo albums that you will cherish for decades to come.
I enjoy creating images, through photography, design, film, or drawings. My drawing skills are less impressive than my photography ones, but I still enjoy a good doodle! My family and friends are what keep me ticking, photography taking a close second place. I cherish the happy moments in life and get pure joy from my kids when they smile. I have a degree in media production and feel fortunate I have been able to put my creativity into practice, both professionally and personally. I love photography and cameras, a day spent playing with my camera, or experimenting with a new lens is a great day in my book! I am a geek, camera specs interest me. After working in the art publishing world for almost 5 years and 9 years within a photography marketing company, I am lucky enough to have worked with artists and photographers that inspire and motivate my own ambitions.
Hugger. Mother. Earl Grey tea drinker. And, oh yes. Rather importantly, I'm obsessed with light, finding it and looking at it. I love just watching different qualities of light and seeing how it moves and changes the world. I'm a former BBC journalist who went on to study an MA in Photojournalism and follow my photography passion. Photographing families and creating memories for them was born out of that passion.
I love the pull of a powerful photograph to evoke memories of a particular moment and feeling in time. There is no greater love than that of a parent to a child, and I believe when you view an image of your child, you are not just seeing a picture of a boy or girl, but all the characteristics and quirks that make your child so special. Yes, we can have that same feeling with pictures taken on our phones, but having a set of images where you are all interacting with each other, bonding as a family, are memories worth making.
Hertfordshire Outdoor Family Photography
Even in an age of restrictions and limitations, you can safely enjoy a photoshoot in an outdoor location with small groups of people or families. Your FPJA Hertfordshire 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 sincere 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 regular routine while your photographer focuses on the art of storytelling.

Hertfordshire Birth Sessions at Home or Hospital

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.
