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.

I photograph families in Manchester but I also travel all over the UK, in France, in Iceland, in Spain and anywhere you want me to come.

A DAY IN IMMERSION

Everybody’s family is unique. All are special. None are the same. Nobody smiles quite like your daughter when she wins, and nobody loses more graciously than your husband. Nobody cares more than your Grandmother, and nobody tells ‘em like your Grandpa. Nobody’s a bigger practical joker than your eldest boy (and nobody laughs cuter than your youngest). I love being an alternative family photographer for all those reasons.

I TELL STORIES

With a documentary approach, let me stay with your family from 90 minutes to 24 hours to document your life in an authentic way. When it comes to photographing your family, I want you to see them how they are. All the different personalities, different sides and all the different ways they complement each other.

I never ask people to pose for long minutes with a cheesy smile. I let you be yourself and take the pictures at the right time. 

When I photograph a family, I use different perspectives to create emotions and memories in which you can immerse yourself again and again. Knowing that these images will forever have a place in your home means the world to me.
I would probably never have become a photographer if I had not spent hours rifling through my parents’ wooden trunk full of photo albums from different eras … imagine the pleasure of showing these memories to your children and grandchildren in years to come!
In each package, you will receive all the digital images I processed with my artistic style. I deliver a minimum of 50 images, depending on the booked time frame. Your online gallery will be available within two weeks of the session. These images will be ready for download without watermark or additional charges.
