As a portrait photographer, my job is to capture a moment of time in a family’s life. You’ll want to look back on these photographs and remember what your children looked like when Sam was 3 and Katie had lost her front tooth, but what’s more, you’ll want to remember how it felt to be a family when you were all young. It’s easy to document how a family looks however it takes a little more skill and effort to capture how a family feels.

My family portrait sessions are fun and relaxed, so in the years to come, you will look at these images and remember a day of happiness and laughter and not one where everyone is looking and feeling stressed. I have lots of fun games to get you all interacting, allowing me to capture authentic and emotional family connections.

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.
Do you require a deposit?
Yes, the session fee is payable before the shoot.
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.
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.
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.
