Professional lifestyle photographer specialising in new life and early years photography, capturing joy and heartfelt moments.
the magic of childhood
So, let's talk a little about the magic - Magic doesn't come in a jar or even shaking a wand. It comes from getting to know each other – you and me – so that I can capture your relationships and tell your story in an authentic way. Magic comes from choosing a location as unique as you are, and making the experience of being photographed as memorable as the finished portraits. Magic only happens if you can relax and enjoy the entire process. Real magic is looking at an image a decade from now and grinning at your memories from that moment in time, realising that you and I captured joy.
A “storyteller first” this magic surrounds your very precious moments from bump, baby and beyond, professionally creating compelling memories that tell a lasting story.
Hi. I'm Maxine, a portrait photographer based in Bournemouth, Dorset. I focus on new life and early years photography.
Parenthood is an amazing journey. From bump to baby and beyond, I strive to tell your personal story in a relaxed way, capturing honest and timeless memories that will last a lifetime, truly unique to you and your family.
Combining my creative eye with a documentary style, I offer a fresh approach to family photography. Being lifestyle based means I can offer my clients a wonderful experience in the comfort of your own home or on location.
From timeless newborn imagery capturing those all important details that sadly don't last forever, to imaginative and interactive play for your little explorers in their own environment.
Highly qualified, experienced and fused with creative expertise, I offer a professional, affordable and dedicated service to all my clients and welcome you onboard to start your personal story. All my sessions are relaxed, calm and creative, guiding you through each step in order to create your story.
