Relax and let me take the photos.
You will be in them too
This is your chance to be in the photos with your loved ones. Get in there and have fun with them while I do all the work taking the photos.
Home or Outdoors
I'm very happy to photograph your family at your home or in a local park. Most newborn sessions tend to take place at home, and older kids would rather go to the park.
I look for good light anywhere I go. Whether it's at your home or in the park. I will be constantly trying to get good light on you guys, create good compositions and above all, capture relaxed and natural moments between you all.
The professional finish
Ready for professional photos?
I will process your photos and give them my signature style and look before delivering them to you in an online gallery.

Hi, I’m Mamad
I'm a wedding and portrait photographer based half way between Derby and Nottingham. I've been a professional photographer since I graduated college with a BA(Hons) degree in Photography.
Natural and relaxed family portraits make up a large portion of what I do now. From Newborn maternity photography to family shoots in the park.
I have 3 children of my own and I'm very use to photographing babies and children of all ages.
I like to make my clients feel completely relaxed and comfortable around me before I start taking photos, that way I can capture some truly natural moments between the family.

The photo session
Within two week of your shoot a little email from me will pop into your inbox with a link to your private online gallery. I wont take up your time with a cringy sit-down sales session! You can look at your photos in peace, in the privacy of your own home. Ordering prints and albums is quick and easy – you just order direct from the gallery.
Don’t worry, I wont spring through the door with a camera on my face! We’ll have a little chat, I’ll play with the kids a bit then I’ll gradually start taking pics when you’re ready & comfortable. I’ll not lurk in the corner all silent and creepy, I’ll just relax with you, chatting and taking some pics as we go. Most people say it just feels like having a friend hanging out with them. You don’t need to worry about what to do or where to look etc – making you comfortable and relaxed is part and parcel of what I do.
Before the shoot itself, we do some quick & easy planning to make sure the session is completely bespoke to you and your family. I send you a short questionnaire to get to know what’s important to you, your daily life, interests and personalities. Then I design the shoot based on all this so we can get the most from our time together and I can capture the things you particularly want to remember in the future. I’ll also send you some helpful info so you know what to expect on the day.
Don’t worry about dates yet, just choose which type of session you want, pay the booking fee and complete the booking form. This is literally all you need to do to get the ball rolling!
My availability is a lot easier during weekdays, as I tend to get booked up for weddings on weekends. However, I'm not booked every weekend, and I'm sure I can schedule you in if need be.
Albums & Prints
Clients have told me many times over the years that having access to a professional print lab via the gallery which allows them to self-order prints & wall products at reasonable prices has been a valuable part of the experience they have with me.
This is because they can take their time choosing what to order from the comfort of their own home. No more having to make decisions in a rush during a traditional ‘viewing session’ in a portrait studio with a pushy salesperson!
With my affordable pricing options, you’ll find that my work is neither the cheapest nor the most expensive in the area, but it does represent one of the best values. With well over a decade of experience, you can invest confidently knowing your money will be well invested.
There's no better time than now to arrange for a family photo shoot. Because you blink and they change. You blink again and they’re off to school. Then Uni. Then you look back at the photos of yourself when your kids were little and laugh about that tiny crease you were convinced was a huge wrinkle. Then the photos of your baby become the photos she now compares with her own baby’s face. Then the album you keep on the bookshelf becomes the grandkids’ favourite thing to look at during the holidays while you tell them the stories of where they came from.
You will never regret not putting this off. Never.
