Cake Smash Sessions in Gloucester

Celebrate your baby’s first birthday with a cake smash at my Gloucester photography studio. Let your little one loose with a cake all to themselves while I capture all the fun on camera (and clean up the mess afterwards!)! Or if you’d prefer something a little healthier, why not try a fruit smash – pick your child’s favourite fruits and let them go wild. With Messy Milestone sessions we can avoid the food altogether and just let them get downright dirty. The world is your oyster – just let me know what you’ve got in mind!

Family Photoshoot FAQs

Yes! If you fancy making your photoshoot that little bit more special, you can get your hair and make-up professionally done right here in my studio before your session. I work closely with the lovely Gemma Hull who specialises in gorgeous natural make-up and ‘wow’ hairstyles that will make you look and feel amazing. To see some of Gemma’s work, head on over to her website Gemma Hull Hair and Make-Up. Full hair and make-up costs just £65 and may be included as part of your deposit (but will not be refundable).

No, you are welcome to make a bespoke order. There is, however, a minimum spend equal to the relevant silver package.

Ideally, yes. The purpose of the view and order session is for you to sit back and enjoy your photographs and decide which, if any, package is right for you. Additional view and order sessions may be requested, however a booking fee will apply.

Yes I do! Click here to go to my outdoor family photography page and find out more.

As a newborn photographer, I have to be really careful not to pass on any nasty germs to the babies that enter my studio so, please, if you have any contagious illnesses, I do ask that you stay away from the studio for at least 48 hours. There is no charge for rescheduling planned sessions due to illness, so let’s be safe rather than sorry.

As your photoshoot draws to a close, we’ll arrange a convenient date and time for you to return to the studio for your view and order session. I don’t like to keep clients waiting too long, so I normally aim to get you back within a couple of weeks of your photo session.

If you can’t wait that long, you’ll be offered the opportunity of a sneak peek of one of your photographs on Facebook the evening of your photoshoot. Please note that I need your consent to use your images in this manner, so if you have not already opted into this within your contract, you may be asked to complete a model release form.

At your view and order appointment, you’ll be shown a beautiful, customised slideshow of all of your photographs. You’ll be reminded of the packages available and shown the art of the possible when it comes to wall art. And then it’s up to you to choose how you’d like to proceed. There’s never any pressure and, of course, if you don’t fall in love with your photographs, I will happily refund your deposit. Thankfully I can report that 100% of my clients have loved their photographs! 

Orders are to be made at the view and order session so please make sure all decision makers can attend. I accept cash or debit card and can also offer payment plans if necessary.

I am passionate about helping families across Gloucestershire to celebrate family life but I know that not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to afford a luxury such as professional photography to help them do this. From an early stage in my business, I decided that I would do my bit to support those who can’t, so I chose to donate a portion of all standard packages sold to two charities in Gloucestershire that resonated with my values, Gloucestershire Bundles and The Family Haven.

You can find out a little more about this here.

A £100 deposit is payable for all photo sessions to secure your booking. This is then used as a credit towards whichever package or products you would like to buy. The deposit is non-refundable in the event of a no-show.

During your consultation, we’ll have a chat about what it is that you’re after from your session and I’ll cater accordingly. After you’re booked in you’ll receive an email telling you everything you need to know to prepare for your session, particularly regarding clothing etc. We’ll aim to get a few different options for a full family portrait and then also get a variety of different photos of the kids/girls/boys etc on their own so that you’ve got plenty to choose from.

With younger children, we might spend a little while playing around at the start to get them feeling happy and comfortable in the studio before we get going. Please don’t worry or feel stressed – we’ll get you a whole gallery of gorgeous photographs!

There’s no perfect time for a family photoshoot. What I would say is don’t put it off!  It’s far too common for parents to miss out on capturing special moments with their family because they’ve waited too long for perfect time/age/weight.. you name it.

No need for lots of notice for family portraits, just give me a call whenever you’re ready!

After your photoshoot, your photographs will be edited to my highest standards before being presented to you. This process typically takes two weeks, however may take a little longer during busy periods. As soon as your photographs are ready, you’ll be invited back for your personal view and order session, where you’ll be able to view your photographs and choose the packages and products that you would like to purchase.

Please note that some mini sessions and event photography packages may not include a personal view and order session; in these cases you will be provided with an online gallery from which to download your photographs.

My studio is located at my home in Longlevens, moments off the A40 and M5 motorway, making it ideally situated for clients in Gloucester, Cheltenham and further afield.

I’d love to! But I will never show your photographs to anyone without your consent. When you sign your portrait photography contract, you’ll be asked permission to use photographs from your session for marketing purposes. I know that some people feel uneasy about this until they’ve seen their images and that’s fine. You’re welcome to make up your mind at your view and order session and, if you’re happy for me to share your beautiful images with the world, I’ll simply fill ask you to fill in a model release consent form. And of course, if you’d prefer they stayed private, then that’s absolutely fine as well.

I wrote a blog post which goes into a little more detail about this here.
