Children are naturally adventurous and energetic and my approach to capturing your child’s personality is best done while they play.

Because of the energetic nature of children these sessions are best held on location or within your home. You should let me know what things your child likes to do or if they have any hobbies they love and we can incorporate these into the session.

Once you have booked your custom children’s portrait session, we shall have a consultation and I’ll give you lots of guidance on how to prepare and what clothing and colours to wear. I will run through location ideas, props and styling and any ideas you have before your session so you are ready for a fun and memorable experience.

Some of the great things you can expect from a session with me will be an experience to remember, customer service with a personal touch and most importantly photographs you and your family will treasure for years to come.


How much does a children's session cost?

What should I wear?
Of course you should wear what you feel most comfortable in. However simple, neutral colours such as greys, beige, browns, pale pinks etc. work best in photographs. We’ll discuss clothing during our consultation once you’ve booked.
Can you visit my home or have the children/family session outdoors?
Yes, of course, the home is a perfect location as it’s a familiar environment for you all. Outdoors sessions are great too; summer months are best for outdoors sessions.
What happens if it rains?
I watch the weather forecast a couple of days before the session. If it looks like rain we reschedule to a drier day.
How long does the session last?
Around 1 1/2 hours for families and older children and an hour for younger toddlers as they get tired quickly.
Should I bring anything to the session?
Yes, Bring little snacks and toys for younger children.
Do you require a deposit?
Yes, the session fee is payable before the shoot.
What happens after the session?
5-7 days after your session I will invite you back to the studio for a Preview and Ordering session. Your gallery will contain around 20 fully retouched images to view and I will help you decide on your favourites. Most of my clients value stunning artwork to hang on their wall, so each image has been edited and designed as a main focus piece. Take note that it is during this Preview and Ordering session that you will order and pay for any products, prints, and packages. All major debit and credit cards are accepted.
What if I need to cancel?
There is a 48-hour cancellation policy. However I do understand that babies and children are prone to catching colds or becoming ill suddenly. I’ll do everything I can to reschedule your appointment to another day.
Do I receive any products in the session fee?
No. Products and packages are available to buy during your Preview and Ordering session.

Can I pay with credit card?
Yes, I accept all major debit and credit cards.
