Have you often wondered what it would be like to have a family photo shoot? Have you imagined what photos of your family might look like?

Special moments, unscripted, captured for you to treasure.

Often people think that a family photo shoot means being in a studio with a white backdrop, but not at Nadine Boyd Photography. A session with me is always in your home or on location in a favourite spot, like a country park or at the beach. Do you like climbing hills? Lets climb a hill together! You see, I want to capture true, honest photos of your family that show the love, fun, connections and chaos of family life. If your kiddos love to run then I want them to run straight at me, wind in their hair and faces full of smiles. I want you to squidge them close, cuddle and tickle them. Most of all, I want you to just enjoy some special time together where you can just be yourselves and I will capture those moments as they happen. My favourite thing is when families see their photos and say they had no idea I was taking photos at a certain point. Lets redefine the family portrait.

A little bit about me

I am mama to two little beauties (not that I’m biased or anything!). They are a whirlwind of fun and mayhem, mixed with kindness and sensitivity.

I love this photo of my daughter and I. I choose to look past my insecurities about my size, and instead see my very strong independent girl who had been exploring all afternoon but just needed a moment of comfort on her mummy’s knee before heading off climbing again and searching for shells.

I have always had a love of photography, but it was when I had my kids that I really started my journey to where I am now. Having snapshots which remind us of our children’s quirks and ways is a wonderful way to reminisce but it is also a beautiful record of their childhood for them. One day these photos will be a huge comfort to our children as well as something to show their children with pride.

Something I feel very passionate about is encouraging parents to be in the picture with their children. I know what it is like, as a mother in particular, to give your all to your children, literally every bit of your heart and soul - not to mention what our bodies do to grow and birth these babies. Often we are left with a body so different to the one we went into motherhood with and that can be a big thing to come to terms with. This can lead to insecurities that stop us from doing the things we want to, like being in photos with our children. So I am working to encourage mothers to be proud of their bodies, of themselves, and to seize the moment, while their children are young, and join in those photos. Our children don’t look at pictures and see size or perfectly done hair. They see their mother or father, looking at them with a love as deep as the ocean and that is why I take photos.
