Capturing real-life moments and real smiles.

Everything changes so fast when you have kids. You know those moments that you wish you could freeze and live in. But it seems like everything is going so fast that you can't get a hold of it. My photography freezes time for you and captures the fleeting stages of your family's growth.

It's not just a family photo shoot; it's a family adventure.

Would you love to have natural photos of your family's personality, expressions and mannerisms? Of the love and connections, you all have? But hate the idea of a staged stuffy photoshoot? To actually enjoy the time having your photoshoot?  Then that's exactly what I'll capture and do for you. My family photoshoots are fun with no awkward smiles at the camera and I don't let anyone say 'cheese'.

 

There's no need to worry about the kids behaving, or feeling awkward in front of the camera. With my sessions, I get the kids and parents to play and have fun. So there's no way we miss the smiles and those expressions that make your heart burst. And they will be genuine smiles because they are enjoying themselves. ​

Kids grow up so fast, family life is so busy there aren't enough hours in the day. And if you blink you'll miss it. 

   

Don't get so busy that you don't document this stage in your family.  They will never be this age again.  They won't need your help at the playground any more and the toothless gaps will fill in before you know it.

Beautiful photos of you all together are something you will treasure for years to come. And which they will too.

Newborn Baby Photography

You are about to embark on a journey that will change your life forever.  Capture this incredible time in your life to remember moments you will cherish for the rest of it.

All wrinkly and so perfect. With all the yawns. But not for long.

 

Don't let time and lack of sleep fade this magical stage of your family's story.  A photoshoot will capture it and will stop the memories from fading. 

 

The change babies go through in their first year is truly phenomenal. In the hectic juggle that is parenting...it will whizz by.

I plan my photoshoots to be fun-filled. This way I can capture genuine emotions and real personalities. Real smiles are only possible when we are enjoying ourselves.

 

We will walk, talk and have fun by playing games. No awkward posing or smiling for the camera. Only a little direction and a few game ideas I have up my sleeves to capture the smiles and mannerisms that you absolutely love.

For newborn photoshoots, we take it slow, it's relaxed and we follow your baby's lead. Expect to cuddle and saviour this magical moment - you've become a family!

At Home or outdoors, fun and playful family photoshoots in London.

Family photoshoots are perfect at home, to capture the magic of your everyday lives. (They are magic even if they don't always feel it.) Or take a trip to the park for an outdoor family photoshoot.​

 

Newborn photoshoots are magical at home. It is a special feeling to bring your baby home from the hospital.

 

I work across London and Hertfordshire and can recommend some great places for outdoor photoshoots.

I really believe this.  Seeing the joy and sparkle in the eyes of your family, captured in a photo. As they laugh and smile with you is something that I find grounds me in this hectic crazy juggle that is parenting.  It shows me the love that's there when some days I'm lost in the trees.  So on those days, I find myself looking through my photos or at the walls that are full of them.

 

I'm Natalie Avery a family and newborn baby photographer in North London.  I'd love to give you beautiful photos of your family that capture the magic of your family. And if, like me you need some grounding.
