When our children are born, we realise immediately that our lives will never be the same again. All the old clichés start to ring true when we become parents, and the love affair is immediate. Every little moment is simply golden. But these stages are fleeting, they pass by in a flash. That’s why my wonderful clients come to me, they want to freeze time, and they look for someone who understands exactly how this feels.
These are the moments I want to capture for you! Whether it be that gummy 6 month old grin, or the quiet stillness of your new born – and all of the parts and pieces you have been waiting so long to see… or maybe it’s the not-so-quiet whirl of your 2 year old running through a pile of leaves! Best of all, what if it’s her love for princesses and fairy tales you want captured or his incredible imagination!
No matter what it is we will find it, we will capture it and we will laugh a whole lot doing it because no session with me is anything close to posed, serious or quiet… ummm helloooo the kids run the show! You see the thing is, these truly are the in’s and out’s of our everyday – and these little things, these little moments, well they are what makes us who we are. And when patched together, these moments make up the story of our lives!
How do we make it happen? Well, it’s simple! Your first choice is usually between a studio session or what we call lifestyle photography – which is a shoot at a location of your choice! Zoo? Beach? Forest walk, what about your own back garden? I’ve even taken photos from a helicopter! We love variety, which is why I offer both. It’s often an extended family I’m called to photograph, or all the grandkids alongside their grandparents. I’m more often capturing family like this than the standard 2.4 children ‘average’. Or maybe you want me there when your eldest daughter is getting ready for her first formal? Or your son’s end of season football match where they may well win their league? If it’s important to you then I can be there.
In the studio you can forget about what the weather’s doing outside and choose from a huge amount of backdrops including rose gold sparkles, simple white, charcoal grey and turquoise blue (our most popular one) . Outside your kids have that little bit more freedom to run, twirl, cartwheel – whatever! Sessions start at just £55 for styled mini sessions, £75 for the standard one hour studio sessions, £99 for a cake smash (which includes a more classic portrait too) & £125 for lifestyle – and don’t forget that includes prints.
