FAMILY SESSIONS WITH BEX MAINI
"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart."
— Helen Keller
Hi, I'm Bex!
I will give you images that make you feel.
I specialise in family life, the details, the emotions and the fun - as messy or chaotic as that may be.
With my semi-documentary approach, your whole experience will be easy and relaxed and your gallery of portraits will be bursting with vibrancy and 'real' life.

captured the fun and love in my family.
Your photos are pure art. [...]

From beginning to end, I am here to advise and help you prepare for your session. You will receive a welcome guide upon booking to make the most of your session.
I give gentle guidance to ensure we use the best light available to make your photos look amazing!
Your session can take place in your home where you and your children are in a familiar environment, doing what you usually do as a family. I also offer location sessions in a favourite place outdoors if you prefer.
"It is more important to click with people than to click the shutter."
— Alfred Eisenstaedt
It's important that you book the right photographer for you!
I take the time to make sure everyone is comfortable during family sessions. If I need to, I will put down my camera and just hang out for a bit, make friends with your kids and put everyone at ease.
I'll blend in as I get creative and we'll create magic out of your everyday that you will be thrilled to to look back on and remember. How it was at that moment.
Get in touch and lets book in your session!
"Taking an image, freezing a moment, reveals how rich reality truly is."
It After your session you will be invited to my office to view a personalised slideshow of your images while enjoying a glass of fizz or cuppa.
This also gives you the opportunity to view my sample prints, frames and albums in person should you be interested in ordering any products.
I truly believe photos are our most special possessions, something that grows in value over the years and provides joy to everyone in the family forever.
They are an investment.
I offer three packages for family sessions...
Any package with all images (including upgrades) will give you a 30% discount off print prices.
Travel further than 40 minutes away will incur an additional fee.
"Photographs open doors into the past but they also allow a look into the future"
— Sally Mann
Don't let your photos languish on your hard drive. Print them, make art for your walls out of authentic family moments you can treasure and pass on to your children.
There are no repeats, let me freeze this moment in time for you.
"My biggest fear was just that the photos wouldn't look good because my home isn't a "magazine house" but it worked so well. Bex put my mind at rest, reassured me that the house didn't need to be perfect at all, she would turn up, take shots as we did normal family things and we are so happy with how they have turned out.
My favourite bit about working with Bex was just how laid back she was throughout the whole experience, the planning, the actual day and the editing.
I would recommend Bex as a family photographer because she is so easy to work with, very approachable and laid back. Nothing is a problem for her, I even asked her for outfit choice help and she helped me choose some lovely colourful outfits for my children.
"Where can I start with Bex and her breathtaking photography? From the minute she arrived at our home to capture precious moments of our family, she was friendly, professional and put us all completely at ease (including our 2 year old!) and in the best possible way, at times we forgot she was there, which meant we got completely relaxed, happy and effortless pictures that we are so proud of...
... When Bex came to show us the photos (a lovely, personal touch), we were blown away; I adore Bex's use of natural light and the way she manages to combine moody hues with vibrant colour is so unique. We can't recommend her enough as she wholly cares as much about the whole process as we do - thank you, Bex!!"
