Your Beautiful Life
Documenting your family as it grows is a beautiful thing. There's nothing more wonderful than a family home filled with a story of love, laughter and adventure. Those moments happen and then life moves on, and soon your babies will be all grown up. My family sessions help to capture your beautiful life, moments where you're all together, the moments you want to hold onto tightly, forever.
My sessions are full of fun and laughter. I will guide you through the whole process, getting the best location and light, whilst focusing on your family and the love you share.
What happens if it rains on the day of the shoot?
Most types of weather won't stop me from getting out there, but if the weather forecast is consistant heavy, rain then we'll make a call the day before and reschedule. I encourage all of my clients to shoot at sunrise or sunset as this provides the best light, but it also tends to be the best weather, especially the evening.
What happens if my child is poorly on the day of the shoot?
I completely understand that children get poorly and often this happens without warning. If your child isn't feeling well on the day of the session then I am more than happy to reschedule to another suitable date.
Do you help us with what to wear?
Yes! Your outfits for your session are important and have a big impact on the feel of your images as well as the colours and tones. You'll be booking me based on my portfolio where outfits have been carefully considered, so in order to recreate a similar feel I offer plenty of guidance.
When should I book?
I encourage all of my families to have their session during sunrise or sunset as this offers the best light. For younger families this can sometimes mean that spring or autumn work best due to the later mornings and earlier evenings, so contacting me as soon as you've decided to book is encouraged so that you can take your pick from the options available.
How would you describe you style of photography?
Heartfelt, unposed, authentic and emotional.
Do you have a studio?
My studio is the beautiful outdoors. I don't have an indoor studio for family sessions - newborn sessions are usually held indoors at your home.
Do you shoot at any location?
I have a handful of very carefully selected locations that I highly recommend to my families. These locations have been chosen due to many factors; the light, the framing, the colours and tones from the landscape, the variation and the proximity to a car park to name a few. I also have my own private land, which offers beautiful long grass in summer, a tree swing and some stunning sunsets.
How long do we have to wait to see our images?
I will get all of your images uploaded to your online gallery within 2 weeks of the session. It's usually sooner than this but completely depends on how busy I am.
How long does a session last?
My family sessions last around 90 minutes. Sometimes this is a little less with younger children or when the weather is cold.
Do you offer printed products?
Yes! I love seeing your photos in print and encourage families to invest in beautiful products. I use the very best providers and print labs to ensure the most stunning finish on your products. My products range from lay-flat albums with the highest quality paper; handmade framed prints, simple or bespoke; and gorgeous colour-correct prints in various styles. If you have something specific in mind, I will no doubt be able to source it for you, so please talk to me for more information.
