Capturing life's important occasions with relaxed home photoshoots and venue coverage
Ready to enquire about a photoshoot for your important occasion?
Life's special moments need to be not just celebrated but captured as well. Why not mark the occasion with photographic coverage of a Christening or naming ceremony, a home photoshoot of a new arrival in the family or a fun outdoor photoshoot to mark a recent engagement?
If it's a Christening or naming ceremony, whether in a church of other venue, I approach the day in very much the same way as I do a wedding. By letting me know what particular moments you most want documenting, you can rest assured that they are discreetly captured. Of course, I will also ensure that the small details you've spend ages organising are also recorded in a creative way and both planned and unexpected moments are photographed in a documentary manner.
A great way to celebrate your engagement is for a relaxed outdoor photoshoot. That way we get to know each other and you get to be comfortable when being photographed - especially important when combined with my Your Big Day wedding coverage. I will work with you to create beautiful images that are comfortable, relaxed and intimate.
A Life Moments home photoshoot can be used to mark the arrival of a new addition to the family. There's no need to take little one; along with changes of clothes, toys and all the other supplies you might need to a studio when images full of character and simplicity can be created in the familiar comfort of your own home. I take my time and wait for the moment to be right - working to little one's schedule, not mine.
Life Moments home shoots are designed to be convenient and comfortable to you whilst aiming to give a simple contemporary 'studio' feel to your images. If there's a particular style that you'd like to replicate; I will work with you to ensure that you get the most out of your photoshoot, helping you to relax and giving you tips on posing you and your little ones.
Often during both home photoshoots and coverage of Christenings and namings, those memorable little moments will occur which no one anticipated. I always aim to truly capture little one's reactions ad

"I would highly recommend Darren. Right from the moment I booked my session, I received great communication to ensure that I received the most from my shoot. Not only did I share what I was hoping for from my photos but Darren also produced some brilliant ideas that fitted the occasion I wanted to capture. He is definitely a photographer to trust when wanting to cherish moments through lasting images. Darren was friendly and I could immediately see the passion he has for his work, which made the shoot very relaxing and filled me with confidence. The whole experience was truly exciting and something I will really remember. Every image that Darren produced was even better than I had imagined. They really did capture everything I was hoping and lots more in a very natural environment. I will definitely be using Darren again for future Life Moments."

"For us, the sign of a great children's photographer is someone who s so unobtrusive that they capture the essence of your child without them even realising that they are being photographed. Darren is one such photographer! The results were phenomenal - the most fabulous pictures, which we will cherish for many years."
Sarah and Andy
"Thanks, Darren, for your patience and calming effect on Florrie and Dexter. You are a true professional and have captured some really beautiful pictures of our children. Lovely to have found someone who captures the true nature of our brood. I have already recommended you to many of my friends and family. We look forward to using you again later in the year."

"We were very impressed with the way Darren interacted with our little man. He was very patient with our little boy as he was a little unsettled. We could not be happier with the end result."
