What to Expect from a Portrait Session




Family sessions are where we get to have lots of fun and capture beautiful, natural images. I allow up to two hours so we have plenty of time for the shoot to create a relaxing and enjoyable experience. Whilst I provide gentle guidance there is plenty of space for you to interact naturally so your family’s personality will really shine through.

I’m a location photographer, which means that you get to choose a backdrop that is meaningful to you. Your perfect location could be a local park, out in the countryside or perhaps a more contemporary urban setting.

Mornings are often the best time to photograph children and babies but we can work around your schedule. If you want to find out more simply get in touch.

Having beautiful photos to remind you of that special time just before your baby was born and being able to show your child when they get older is something my clients tell me they really treasure. These sessions usually take place outdoors so think carefully about what to wear to show off your beautiful bump.

Baby sessions normally take place at your home where the baby is most comfortable. They can last up to two hours so we can take breaks for feeds and changes. I keep things simple and focus on capturing your baby’s gorgeous expressions using natural light to make images you will treasure.

These sessions are tailor made to perfectly suit your needs. They can be natural, quirky or glammed up. Choose the location to fit the look you want. I’d love to hear your ideas and talk through the possibilities.

Whether you want some professional looking photos to market your business, stunning images for a modelling portfolio or simply some great photos as a gift, just get in touch.
