In studio or outdoors, Kerrie is a Colchester family photographer who loves to capture your personalities! 


I love the freedom that on location family photography offers. It's not just about taking great pictures, it's about capturing real-life moments in a natural setting that reflects your family's unique personality. Whether it's the woods, beach, or even at home, on location family photography allows me to capture the essence of your family in a way that's relaxed, fun, and authentic.

One of the things I enjoy most about on location family photography is how much fun it can be. Kids are free to run, jump, and play, while parents can relax and enjoy the experience. And because we're in a natural environment, there are plenty of opportunities for spontaneous moments that can't be planned or posed. These are the moments that make for truly special and memorable photographs.

When it comes to choosing a location, the options are endless. As a Colchester family photographer, I know all the best spots in and around town, from the picturesque woods to the stunning beaches. And if you'd prefer to stay closer to home, we can even do a session in your own garden or home. The important thing is to choose a location that feels right for you and your family. That way, we can capture images that truly reflect who you are and what you love.


If you're looking for a more polished and timeless look for your family photos, in-studio sessions could be a great option, especially if you have young children. I've got a cozy and modern studio that's lit with natural light and kept minimal to create a clean and classic aesthetic.

One of the benefits of in-studio photography is that we can control the environment, so you don't have to worry about unexpected weather or outdoor distractions. Plus, with the cozy setting, your little ones might feel more comfortable and at ease, resulting in more natural and genuine expressions. 

We can also take our time, and you won't have to worry about chasing the perfect light like you would during an outdoor session.

No matter what type of session you choose, my goal as a Colchester based family photographer is to capture your family's unique personality and all the fun moments you share together. So, whether you're looking for a natural and relaxed vibe in the great outdoors or a more classic look in-studio, I'll work with you to make sure your photos are authentic, timeless, and most of all, fun!

what happens if it rains?

do you have a list of location ideas?

book your shoot

If you've booked an outdoor session I'll always reschedule if it rains!

Yes. I have lots of great beaches, woodlands, fields and parks I can recommend for your photo shoot.

In studio keep it neutral to match the studio aesthetic. Outdoors really anything goes as long as you are co-ordinated with each other. I always recommend avoiding black or navy so you don't blend into the background.


I'm Kerrie.
