Wild hearts were never meant to live inside a white picket fence.
A favourite short poem of mine is "Wild hearts were never meant to live inside a white picket fence." And I believe this is true for all of us, we are supposed to grow up in nature, with muddy feet & adventurous spirit. That legacy should continue and as we have children of our own, our inner child finds it way out again. Location sessions with Little Lily Photography sit right there, with that poem.
We will dance carelessly around fields, run towards the waves, look for bugs in the grass, fairies in the flowers. You'll scoop up your babies, smother them with kisses, tell them stories, make them laugh, hold them tight.
It sounds like real life, doesn't it?
Well, that's what I'll capture.
For the adventurous souls, a golden filled evening chasing the sunset with your little ones. With a small amount of guidance and posing from me, your session becomes a unique experience, telling a story of love & laughter.
Celebrating your miracle body, you deserve this treat mama. Maternity sessions can include your partner & other children or you can have this one all to yourself. Soak up those last few weeks of your pregnancy & allow me to capture it all.
I see you there, loving endlessly on your little ones. Motherhood has a special place in my heart, so I hold a special place to capture your story of motherhood too. Your love, your bond, authentically captured.
I have an extensive list of locations, which have been carefully scouted to offer you seasonal blooms, crops, water, forests & so much more. There really is something for everyone with Little Lily Photography.

"Give me the wild children
with their bare feet and sparkling eyes.
the restless, churning climbers.
the wild ones using their outside voices, singing all the way home.
give me the wonder-filled, glorious mess makers dreaming of mountains and mud,
aching to run through a field of stars."
Does my location session have to be at sunset?
Of course not, however if you're after the golden glowy photographs you see on my social media and website then I highly encourage having a golden hour session. I have lots of tips for keeping little ones up past bedtime but they tend to be sooo excited that it keeps them going through the session. If you'd prefer a daytime or morning session, I can advise some locations that offer plenty of shade. Magic can be made at any time of day.
How do I choose a location?
Upon booking, you'll receive my in depth prep guide. This includes a location bank, with a description and colour palette of each one! If you have a meaningful location, just let me know upon booking and I'd love to see if we can make it work for you.
How do your packages work?
All sessions are booked under a base package, this includes 10 digital photographs and 10 matching prints. Secured with a deposit and the rest payable the day of your photoshoot. At your viewing, you'll be able to choose from one of my collections if you decide you've fallen in love with many, many more!
How many photographs are taken during the photoshoot?
Your final gallery will have a minimum of 30 to 40 images, I carefully select the best ones to edit and you'll be able to make your selection from those.
Can our children have a photoshoot without us included?
Your photoshoot can be exactly what you want it to be! I always encourage families to come dressed just in case they need a cuddle so I can snap these "in arm" moments. Remember, they are only this small once and your children will only ever see how much you love them in your photos.
When should I book my session?
As soon as you start thinking about having one, due to the nature of my photoshoots my calendar fills up quite fast especially in the warmer months.
For newborns, I recommend after your 12/20 week scan. There is such a small window of time to capture newborns and I only take so many newborn bookings per month. If you choose to book when your little one is here, I may not be able to fit you in last minute.
Do you provide props?
For location sessions, I may bring blankets, flower crowns and outfits upon request but my style is very much natural and props can often distract from the intimate moments.
For newborn sessions, the studio is filled with natural tones, textures & blankets to swaddle your little one. I'm also a bonnet queen, with a few too many in my client wardrobe.
