RELAXED AND AUTHENTIC FAMILY PORTRAITS


THE GALLERY

I like to photograph children and families outside, at a location that is significant or holds special memories for you. 

This could be somewhere you enjoy visiting as a family or your favourite place for a Sunday afternoon stroll. The seasons make a wonderful backdrop and a child’s imagination as they explore and play is the best place to take truly authentic and unique pictures. Don't worry if you can't think of anywhere - I know lots of places around the Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire countryside that I can introduce you to.

My sessions are fun and very relaxed. I like to let the children take the lead, only giving gentle direction when necessary, so I get a good mix of action shots and natural poses for you to choose from. I understand that children sometimes need time to warm up and that can’t be rushed. It’s important that the session is fun for you all so there is no rigid time limit and if we need to stop for an ice cream or a cup of coffee, that’s just fine. 

Newborn and baby photography sessions take place in your home - because I've been a new mum too and I know you don't want to leave the sofa, let alone the house! My sessions are relaxed, informal and baby-led using soft light and natural poses. There is no strict time limit and I will fit in with your baby’s routine – whatever that may (or may not) be.


A photography session isn't an everyday occurrence, so I have purposefully made my pricing as simple as possible. 

Initially, all you need is 'The Essentials' - this includes your photography session, the editing of the images, an online gallery of your final pictures where you can download them all at high-resolution to print yourself.

The Essentials     £320

  • 2 hour photography session.

  • Post-production, editing and retouching of all your images.

  • Password protected online gallery where you can download all your images at high-resolution to print yourselves.

If you intend to print your pictures yourself, this is all you need. Or if you prefer, I can produce your artwork for you. There are distinct advantages to this which I can discuss with you if you wish, but I never ask my clients to commit to any printed products prior to seeing their final gallery, so you have plenty of time to think about it.

Creating the beautiful pictures you see in my galleries and the art in my clients' homes requires considerable skill and effort, both during the session and afterwards in the digital darkroom. So it makes sense that my time and expertise are the most significant aspects of your investment.

Your photography session is hugely important to me and I work hard to provide you with a gallery full of pictures you love. When you have selected your favourites, the way in which you choose to display your pictures is equally as important. The moment you first see your picture transformed in print to a piece of art for your home is not to be underestimated, the 'big reveal' is a very special and often emotional occasion.

I'm always happy to offer advice to my clients regarding the printing of their pictures. There are some great consumer print labs out there and it's not always necessary to use a 'professional' lab, so just ask if you're unsure of where to go or what to do. No pressure, I promise - all I want is for your gorgeous pictures that I've worked so hard on to look exactly how they should when printed.
