Just as i love to celebrate the beauty of the changing seasons; I love to celebrate the changing seasons of the women and the beauty of the ever changing journey that is motherhood. For mamas to be and mamas who are, let's celebrate your unique journey so far.
Held in an outdoor location, one that reflects your inner spirit, take this time for you to reflect on the creation of life or celebrate a motherhood nurturing milestone .
It is about celebrating the wonder of your body, about the miracle taking place within it, and honouring our human form where we bring new life into our beautiful world. How amazing are we!
ALTHOUGH THIS PHOTOSHOOT IS ALL ABOUT EMPOWERING YOU, YOUR LITTLES AND OF COURSE YOUR LOVED ONES ARE VERY WELCOME TOO.

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 know what to expect.
Your online gallery will be delivered to your inbox within four weeks. 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 one week before your shoot to confirm timings and exact location if outdoors based on tides and weather.
Then it's 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.
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 full of dress's to compliment your bump perfectly and upon booking, you will receive a full style and prep guide from me to help you plan ahead.
The location is entirely up to you, where do you spend your time as a family, what do you love to do, 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. Travel up to 25 miles is included in the session fee, however if you would like a quote for a little further please let me know.
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 you and your precious little life growing inside, a chance for you to connect to your bump and just be. 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've been on one awesome adventure.
Its always best to get in touch as early as possible to avoid missing out. I typically book 3 months in advance so would suggest booking a newborn or maternity shoot just after your 20 week scan and for couples and for couples and families up to 4 months in advance.
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. If you are uncomfortable to shoot with little ones or if you don’t want to get wet i completely understand and we can 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.
(a small travel fee will be applied if travelling for work only outside a 25 mile radius)
For an indoor session these can be shot at any time of day. On location sessions take place during golden hour which is around 90 minutes before sunset or just after sunrise.
Of course; the full gallery will be sent to you via a private online gallery and you can choose the number of images as per your package or upgrade if you wish.
