Welcome to my family photography page. I am Fiona, a Bournemouth Family Photographer. Photographing families all over Dorset is such a pleasure and I have a special photography permit to photograph family photography in the New Forest.

I live in Ferndown with my family and love nothing more than to get out in nature to the beach and the New Forest.

There are a number of shoots on offer, from a family mini session to an extended family photoshoot including all your family, these are really popular often with people visiting Dorset on holiday or celebrating a big birthday.

If you would like to chat about your idea for a family location shoot the get in touch. WhatsApp me on 07854442391 or contact me here
