Or have a look at the FAQs below and you might find the answers you're looking for there.


How do I book my photo shoot?

Simply get in touch and we’ll book a date in the diary, either during the week, weekend or school holidays! We’ll also discuss where you’d like to hold your photo shoot, perhaps at home or we can meet in a park or garden.

I’ll also call you before your shoot to learn more about your family and discuss any specific images you’d like me to capture. And I’ll send you a clothing guide to advise you on what to wear to your shoot, including the best colour combinations for the time of year!

What happens if I need to rearrange?

If we’re shooting outdoors and the weather is due to be wet or unsuitable, then we will rearrange your photo shoot. Please let me know as soon as possible if your child is unwell and I will gladly re-arrange your shoot.

How long does the shoot last?

I don’t set a time limit for my shoots, but find that most last about 2 hours.

Can my child bring their favourite teddy?

Absolutely! And if you’d prefer images without it, then I’ll ask the child if Teddy can sit on my camera lens, or for it to fly back and forth over my head like an aeroplane! Anything to ensure the child can see the teddy without it actually being by their side!

What should we wear?

What happens after the shoot?

I will select and professionally edit around 30 images from your photo shoot. These will be available to view online via a secure gallery with password protection. This is usually available within two weeks. The gallery will be live for 10 days during which time you can share it with friends and family before selecting your favourite images.

The images in your gallery will include my logo, but your final prints and high resolution digital files will not.

Why do you suggest professionally printing my images?

Quality, quality, quality! I am yet to meet a client who has not been stunned by the difference between a professionally printed image and one printed on the high street. Plus, I only use the highest archive grade paper for my prints to ensure your images look amazing and last for generations.

When do I pay?

A deposit is required in advance to secure your booking. Once you have selected your digital and/or print package you will receive a final invoice. Once this has been paid, you will receive your prints/digital files.

What to expect, what if my child is shy etc.

These sessions are supposed to be fun and relaxed. And so the boss on the day is always the child, just like any other day, really! You can have a loose plan of things you'd like to do, but mostly we'll just follow them. If they want to have a nap, build a den, go for a walk, change clothes a hundred times, that's absolutely fine.

What is lifestyle photography?

My husband is reluctant to have photos taken – how do I convince him?

Well, I don’t know your husband so I don’t know what methods work for him individually, but show him the website and blog, and how I’m not about catching people looking at the camera with cheesy grins, but more about interactions, relaxed fun and telling the stories of families just being themselves.

How long does it take to get my photos?

2-3 weeks after your session I’ll upload your online gallery

You choose what you want, and once payment is received I’ll start to process your order – this includes design of any customised items.

Prints usually take 3-4 weeks

Customised boutique products such as announcements and albums usually take 6-8 weeks

How many people can we have in our shoot?

As many as you like in theory, but it may get a bit chaotic if you involve too many and that might prevent us from getting exactly the interactions and shots you’re after. My session fee covers up to 5 people.
