Jades photographs are brilliant. She had taken photos for us on a number of occasions including my little girl as a new born and on her first birthday. The photographs are always perfectly natural. I would highly recommend Jade and we wouldn't use anyone else.Rosie & Imogen
We had a couples shoot with Jade and the pictures were great. We were so happy with them. They were just what we wanted and we will be keeping them forever.Katrina & Dean
We had a morning at the woods with Jade for our lifestyle shoot and it was exactly as promise...lots of fun! For a little boy who didn't want his photograph taken Jake was soon in the swing of things and acting like a proper little model. The set of photographs we received were fabulous and captured the day just as it was. I would defiantly recommend her lifestyle shoots to anyone looking for something a little bit different and creative.Karen & Jake
Every grandparent will believe they have the most beautiful grandchildren in the world. (In my case I know I have!) I could not think of a better way of showing others the beauty and joy of your little treasures than by getting a photographic portfolio of them with their nanny and granddad.
I chose Jade, because I felt her photos showed both the grandparents and their grandchildren in natural poses and settings. The photographs reflect the love and happiness we feel for our little ones, and I think also shows how the children interact and enjoy our company.
The photo shoot was very laid back with Jade putting us all at ease. She made time for us and was patient with everyone. The end result was a session that was fun and enjoyable. At no time were we rushed and she seemed to understand instinctively the type of photos we wanted.
The end results were far better than we could have imagined. The photo books are of a fantastic quality and I love the high quality of the many photos showing shared giggles, big hugs and those special moments that are what makes having grandchildren something very special.
If you want to capture your special memories, you should look no further than Jade Doherty.From a happy Granddad
LIFESTYLE & FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY
Family are the most important thing in the world....FACT! Do you have enough photographs of those closest to you? Their tiny toes and snotty noses, the shy teenage grin, photographs of your parents or grandparents or of everyone together having fun. If the answer is no then we need to chat and get you booked in for one of my relaxed, friendly and fun sessions!.
I am a Lancashire family and children's lifestyle photographer based in Rochdale also covering the North West and Yorkshire. Please take a look at my gallery where you will see they type of photography I specialise in. I believe that we should let children be children, lets face it they don't sit still and as a mum of two little ones I know this only too well. In my lifestyle sessions I like to embrace this fact, so instead of the formal poses in front of a backdrop with artificial lighting lets get outside in the fresh air and have some fun.
I understand that no two children are the same. Personally I sometimes even wonder if my own two come from the same family because their personalities are so different from one and other! My mum always says it would be a boring old world if we were all the same (and we all know that mums are always right) . For this reason I like to find out a little about you and your family first so that I can create a set of images that really reflect your little ones personalities.
Children are at their best when they are relaxed and having fun no matter what their age. The carefree spirit that children have is precious and I love to capture it with my photography from big smiles on happy little faces right through to those trendy teenage years. With my years of experience as a press photographer and the fact that I am also a mum I find it easy putting people at ease. This is essential for the type of photography I offer as the sessions are all about having fun.
I will work with you to choose a great location for your photo shoot, one that works well on camera and has a personal meaning too. A walk in the park, your local woods, the countryside or flower meadows all make great locations. Alternatively why not book me for the day and we can head off to the seaside.
Family Photo Shoots and Sessions
I book my lifestyle sessions for the morning or afternoon so they are relaxed and not rushed. I will meet you first for a coffee and biscuits so that we can have a chat and get to know each other and so that the children can familiarise themselves with me. We will then head out and let the fun begin leaving the shoot to unfold naturally.
My styled shoots follow the same format as my lifestyle shoots but just offer that something a little bit different. They are loosely based around classic children's stories. Children can get dressed up and go on an adventure. From pirates and red Indians to fairies and ballerinas there is plenty to choose from.
Whether its your first grandchild or you have a troop of ten being a grandparent is wonderful. Why not treat yourself to one of my lifestyle sessions to get some lovely photographs of you and your grandchildren to show off to all your friend and treasure. These sessions make popular gifts as they are a present that is extra special and really will be enjoyed by everyone.
After your session I will edit all the images to a high standard for you to look at on a private online gallery. At the time of booking I will give you a list of prices for the products I offer so you will have plenty of time to decide on what packages you like best. I don't believe in the hard sale and I don’t think it does your reputation as a photographer any good. There will be no hidden costs. Being a good photographer who offers a good value service are my core values and are ultimately what my business is all about. It is these values that lead to the recommendations which I rely upon.
