Jolly Giraffe // Creative Family Photography

Jolly Giraffe is a family photography business specialising in relaxed, fun and natural photographs of your loved ones.

Based in West Yorkshire & The North East, covering all of Huddersfield, Manchester, Newcastle, Durham, Northumberland &  Cumbria and surrounding areas.


Offering outdoor family photoshoots and lifestyle shoots in your own home, we create a relaxed, enjoyable atmosphere to capture the personality of your children & family.


Jolly Giraffe also covers special family occasions such as christenings, birthdays and anniversaries. 


Our photographer, Katie has over twelve years experience, and has captured a huge range of events and families.

She understands that people (but especially little ones) are best photographed when they are allowed to have the freedom to have fun and be themselves.


Jolly Giraffe loves to explore outdoors! Playing with sticks, splashing in puddles and building sandcastles are all part of being a child, and helps to get their imaginations going!
If you're looking for static, traditional images with forced smiles, you've come to the wrong place....

Children with additional needs are made especially welcome, here at Jolly Giraffe we believe that all families should be able to have their memories captured.

Katie has experience in photographing children with autism and other learning disabilities, and focuses on the interests and personalities of each child to ensure they have fun and enjoy the photoshoot too. 


All the 'children' now grown up? No problem, Jolly Giraffe loves big kids too. Get your siblings together and create some relaxed portraits your parents will love!

(It's ok if you still want to play fight with your sister a bit)


You're also welcome to bring your four legged friends....
