Thank you so much for stopping by my little section of the web, I am so excited to have you here and I cannot wait to hear your story…
Grab a coffee and take a moment to fill in this form so I can get to know you a little better.
I will get back to you within 48 hours.
The most important thing here is that you are comfortable, i always find that people are happier and more confident when they are wearing something that makes them feel good. As a part of your photoshoot, you will have full access to my client wardrobe and upon booking, you will receive a full style and prep guide from me to help you plan.
The location is entirely up to you, where do you spend your time as a family, what do you love to do together, we can go hiking, have a campfire the list is endless but equally if you don’t have a particular place in mind- I am happy to recommend several magic locations i often use depending upon the season. Some of the locations do require a little walking so if you have any mobility issues, please do let me know before hand so I can take this into consideration.
When people ask me what to expect, it's so hard to pinpoint my answer as every shoot i do is so different so my advice to you is to come with zero expectations. Embrace what comes whether that's the wind, the rain, fits of laughter, tears or whatever emotion unfolds. our time together is about capturing your life exactly how you live it. it normally takes around ten minutes to relax into a shoot and feel comfortable with what you are doing but i promise you, i do my upmost to make you feel confident and by the time you leave, you will feel like you have been on one epic adventure.
Maternity - To avoid missing out, I would say to book in as soon as you have had a 12 week scan. It’s best to book when you are going to be between 30-35 weeks but ultimately, book in when you feel you are going to be most comfortable.
Newborn - Again I would recommend booking this in as early as your 12 week scan. Ideally this would be booked 2 weeks after your due date so we can capture all those newborn snoozy moments, but any age is utterly beautiful. I know babies are rarely on time so I always leave room to be flexible with newborn dates dependant on when the baby decides to arrive.
Couples & Family - I only have select dates available each month so I recommend getting in contact around 4 months in advance to book a session.
Being in the UK means the weather can be pretty unpredictable doesn’t it! I am an all round outdoorsy person so am happy to shoot in any weather and won’t usually cancel until the last minute as some of the rainiest days can end with the most epic of skies. Thats said if you have little ones or don’t want to get wet i get it too and if the weather is too dangerous or difficult to shoot in we reschedule to the nearest possible date.
If you have any adventure gear you use as a family I am ALWAYS up for incorporating this from Paddleboards to skateboards, whatever makes your heart skip a beat. Perhaps you might want to bring some smaller props a blanket, a picnic, a change of clothes, then please do so. For babies and children; think about bringing some neutral toys; teethers, snacks, anything that may bring a sense of comfort for them but you’re happy to end up in images.
I mostly cover Dorset and some of South Devon. But i absolutely love to travel, as a family we are quite often on the road living out our little camper so if you have a location in mind please feel free to get in touch. If we are on the road in a particular place and I am planning on working I will share this on my instagram too.
(travel fees apply if travelling for work only or outside a 15 mile radius)
Ill never post anything without asking you first. Your privacy is always respected and if you would prefer to keep all or some of the images private this is entirely up to you. There is an opt in or out option in your contract so please make sure you read this fully.
Of course, I offer 3 different packages for each session. The most popular is package 2 which includes the whole gallery of 50 digital images.
Fill out the contact form with all the details and I will get right back to you after checking availability for your preferred date / baby due date. If you are booking for a newborn session i will normally put an initial date 2 weeks after your due date to save a session space and then we move/work from there once baby actually arrives! Please note I always aim to have the session within the first 3 weeks from birth.
Once we have a date that works, I will send you over an invoice for a 20% deposit (the rest is payable 7 days before the shoot) along with a contract, that you can sign electronically. Once these steps are complete, its official and i already cant wait for our adventure.
I will then send you a questionnaire which will help me determine the creative side of the shoot and also helps me to make the session as comfortable as possible for you and your family\loved ones. You will also receive a full style guide fully designed from me to help you prepare for your shoot and help you with what to expect.
My aim is to get a fully edited online gallery delivered to your inbox within four weeks, sometimes my work load is a little heavy and i can run behind but if this is the case, i will let you know. The gallery is sent to your email in a beautiful online gallery for viewing and comes with an easy to follow selection and download instructions, so you can do as you like, print, share and most importantly treasure them for an entire lifetime.
I will be in touch a couple of days before your shoot to confirm timings and exact location if outdoors based on tides and weather.
Then its time to go, have fun, run wild with the littles, snuggle and breath in your babies, or take time to connect with your partner and bump before you family grows.
I am there to capture you and your loved ones - the perfectly, imperfect version of you with no judgement & i promise you, i'll capture the story and the magic that your family holds.
