MORE THAN JUST A FAMILY PHOTOSHOOT


My aim is to create relaxed and timeless family portraits which fill you with complete joy every time you see them on your wall. If you're soaking up the final weeks before your new baby arrives or dancing carelessly around a field with your children, there is a story to be told in so many milestones during our lives. Growing a baby, those blissful newborn days, the first steps, celebrating their first birthday, the first days of school. It all goes by so quickly, doesn't it?


With the smallest amount of guidance and posing, your photoshoot will be nothing short of adventure and I promise you'll feel relaxed the moment we meet! Most sessions take place during at sunset, with exception for some. Together we will choose a location in Hampshire, this could be somewhere meaningful or somewhere on my ever-growing list of locations!


Whether it's by the sea with the gentle waves and pink tinted sky or at the top of the hill with views for miles and drenched in golden sun, your family will be photographed in a natural, storytelling way.


LIFESTYLE NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY

IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME


Whilst all family & motherhood sessions take place on location, lifestyle newborn sessions take place in the clients home. I know what you're thinking... "What a dream?! I don't have to leave the house with a newborn!". Newborn sessions are relaxed, timeless and take a non posed approach to create a collection of timeless and natural photographs.


These sessions can take up to 2 to 3 hours, making the most of the natural light coming into your home. As well as plenty of time for family & sibling shots, I'll bring along some gorgeous swaddles, textures & wraps to create some beautiful images of your sleepy newborn baby. Your session will allow plenty of time for feeding, changing and settling little ones.


 A guide is sent out before your session so you know how to prep your home, don't worry - you do not need an instagram worthy living room or even a tidy home! Cupboards are great for hiding things.

"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."

FAQ

Does my location session have to be at sunset?

No BUT 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. Light plays a huge part in photography and the difference even just an hour too early can be huge! 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.

How do I choose a location?

I'll talk you through all of this when you enquire & provide a "Location Bank" in my prep guide. If you aren't sure from my recent work then think of where you love to go as a family, where you are your happiest? The beach, the forest, a country walk, a sentimental place... I am happy to travel to chosen locations within Hampshire at no extra cost!

How do your packages work?

Packages are split into two parts, you pay a session fee (which is technically a deposit) before your photoshoot to secure the date, this also includes a print. Packages can then be purchased when you view your gallery.

How many photographs are taken during the photoshoot?

Too many to tell you as I'm an overshoot haha! But remember, a lot of these might be out of focus, include blinking eyes or caught mid talk. Your final gallery will have a minimum of 30 to 40 images.

Can our children have a photoshoot without us included?

Of course I can't make you get in the photo but I do 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 and definitely before your baby arrives! There is such a small window of time to capture newborns and if my diary is fully booked, 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, I bring a beanbag with blankets and wraps so I can swaddle sleepy babies!
