Corinne’s Nest

Welcome to Corinne’s Nest – home of the most natural family photographer in Derbyshire.

If you are looking for photography that avoids stiff, formal poses, and the stark white backgrounds of studio photography just don’t feel like ‘you’, I hope that you find the relaxed, informal style of my photographs and shoots more suited to the feel of your family.

Based in Derbyshire, I can – and do – travel further afield for shoots, but most of my work is in the local area, using the backdrop of our beautiful, dramatic landscapes, woodland and nature, or in the homes and gardens of my customers, capturing their family in their own environment, where the images simply frame natural moments of everyday life to hold memories of your truth forever.

I have a lot of experience photographing families, weddings and events, and have developed my own informal approach to these environments; I think there’s a market for the formal and posed images – but that those just don’t suit everyone, and can put some people so ill at ease that the images don’t capture who they truly are – and because they aren’t comfortable being photographed, the images capture discomfort – and then aren’t enjoyed and displayed.

With six children of my own, who are very reluctant to stand nicely in a row for a staged image, I had to adapt to a more natural style – and with their growing smiles as my muse, I found that the more candid shots captured their personalities and the moments they were living more accurately – so that’s what I opted to offer to customers – who seem to love these candid shots of their families as much as I do of mine.

For a better idea of what I offer, do explore my galleries – where you can find examples of family shoots, maternity shoots, newborn and baby shoots, events and weddings. You’ll also find more details there of the prints you can order with your shoots, and – coming soon – some upcycled picture frames you can order with those prints.

I’m a big believer in being totally upfront about costings – there are no hidden charges, additional costs, no pressure to buy more than you planned, and no pushy sales tactics – I simply discuss what you’re looking for, give you a single price, and then send all the edited photo files so that you can develop, print and share them with your friends and family as much as you like. If you’d like me to have the prints made for you, just let me know and that will be included in the price I quote.

Get in touch to enquire about a shoot, or follow me on Instagram to see some of the candid shots of my own family as we live our very busy home-schooling lives – which you can also find out more about on my ‘about me’ page.
