Manchester Family Photographer with an Artistic and Documentary approach
Hi, I’m Coralie, a Manchester Family Photographer, specialized in documentary photography with a candid approach, in the North West of the UK. I mainly photograph kids and families in their home, to capture the details and all the things that make your family unique.
My most popular session is the Day in the Life. I come to your home to photograph you and your family on a normal day, from the morning ritual to the end of the day when the kids are sleeping and the parents can enjoy their moment together cuddling on the couch with a nice drink! I also photograph little ones and mums during the week in a spontaneous and artistic way.
The entire day with the family is the best way to photograph your family as it truly is. A perfectly imperfect day chilling with your kids and letting them be themselves. I will not ask you to pose, I don’t want your house to be perfectly tidied up ; I want the normal chaos of a family life; dirt on the kids clothes because they’re having fun in the garden or to baking cookies with you. I don’t only want smiles, because no one smiles all day long. I want real feelings, and the kids to know it’s ok to feel sad, cheeky, overwhelmed, disappointed, thrilled, crazy, happy, bored, loved… Sometimes I will play with the kids and make friends with them and sometimes I will be discrete and try to be invisible because I take the best pictures of the family when everyone is being themselves. Some families want to stay at home all day long, barefoot, doing yoga, playing in the garden, reading stories, baking… when some other families prefer to go for a long walk outside, eat lunch in their favourite restaurant and go to the park. The most important is to have fun all together, doing your own routine and the things that your kids will be happy to remember as their real life when they will grow up..
I consider the people I photograph friends more than clients. I enjoy talking with them about what they love in their lives, how they deal with parenthood, what they want to remember, the sacrifices, the unforgettable moment. It’s ok to be vulnerable sometimes, there is not one way to educate your kids and I will never judge the way you are with your family because for me only love matters. For your child you are a superhero.
The way I photograph is using only natural light to get the more authentic pictures and capture the atmosphere of the day.
