Hi, I’m Briony, mama to three young children and a dedicated documentary & lifestyle photographer.

I am intrigued with capturing the beauty of an ordinary day. A day that is unremarkable like so many days that come with parenting a young family, but remarkable too because your rituals and rhythms are yours alone. What you provide to your children – love, comfort, food, shelter – they are the foundation to what shapes them as people. And it is YOU that is providing them. And it’s instinctive. No one tells you how (no matter how often I wish I had manual!)

I want to capture those fleeting moments you can’t get back, the memories you want to grab onto and hold forever.  As a photographer, it’s my second nature to photograph all of the beautiful details in the world of my own family. And that’s why I created my in-home documentary photography sessions – so I could capture those same details and daily rituals for other families.

With love, briony

PS: Beautiful lifestyle and commercial work is something I just can’t let go of either… so although this blog is ‘family photography-centric’ I do photograph people in their places of work, doing the things they love. Capturing their brand essence.


A few favourite quotes that sum up family life to me:

“As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful. They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness — just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breath it; just warmth and shelter and home folks; just plain food that gives us strength; the bright sunshine on a cold day; and a cool breeze when the day is warm.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

“The days are long but the years are short” and the well worn, ‘This too shall pass”
