Natural lifestyle newborn & family photography - that captures those real-life moments and real smiles giving you fantastic pictures that you'll treasure forever.
Hi and welcome. I am Natalie Avery a family photographer specialising in natural, unposed family photography. My images are bright with lots of light for beautiful images of your family with no forced smiles or poses. See more of my style and images in my portfolio.
If you'd love to have honest real pictures of your child's expressions and mannerisms then that's exactly what I'll capture for you.
Genuine smiles. Fun and Playful Family Photography.
During the session, I encourage you all to play, talk and laugh so that everyone is themselves and not conscious of the camera. Straight looking at the camera photos are not what I will focus on. Of course, you will get some when the moments right and because I understand that's what the grandparents want.
I will capture your family and your relationships. Those bonds and connections you have. This is to me what a beautiful
photo is - catching a connection and the emotion within it.
Don't worry about the kids and how we'll get them to smile or look at the camera. With my sessions, I get the kids to play and have fun so there's no way we miss the smiles. And they will be genuine smiles because they are enjoying themselves.
Kids grow so fast and if you blink you'll miss it. Beautiful photos of your whole family together are something you, and your children will treasure for years to come.
At Home or a location of your choice.
Newborn photography sessions are perfect at home to capture the magic of the early days, or for family portraits take a trip to the park or even your own house and garden. You’ll be surprised how special the photos will be.
If you'd like photos to capture a special occasion (like turning one or a birthday party) or just to make sure you have beautiful portraits of the whole family together in your favourite place - then please get in touch. Too often one person is missing in your family photos or you realise the kids have changed so much and you don’t have enough photos.
I've had a passion for taking photos for years and having two kids myself I've used that passion to record many milestones and cheeky grins that tell my family's story. Don't worry about the kids and how we'll get them to smile or look at the camera, with my sessions I get the kids to play and have fun so there's no way we miss the smiles.

Now open and taking bookings for summer and autumn
I am now opening and taking bookings for outdoor family portraits and a limited number of in-home newborn photoshoots as we come out of lockdown and adjust to new ways of working using government guidance. Find out more here how I am approaching my photoshoots now.
Natalie achieved the impossible, great photos of my children, aged 4 and 1! Beautiful natural photos that really captured the moment and the beauty of our surroundings. Natalie was lovely, patient and put us all at ease. Would definitely recommend.
