Mummy and Me Sessions in Gloucester

Let me guess: your kids are growing far too fast? Yup. Mine too. While they’re still small and absolutely adore you (although we all know that won’t change, no matter what they say!), why not capture the precious bond that you share together with a Mummy and Me Photoshoot. Because when they’re grown and have flown the nest, you will be so thankful to have those memories. Think of it as a gift to your future self.

Why mummy and me? We women are renowned for being the ones taking all the photographs, and rarely actually featuring in them for ourselves. This is all about capturing YOU so that you and your children create tangible memories you can both enjoy for years to come.

This is your chance to feature in your photographs, mama! Don’t miss this opportunity!

Mummy and Me sessions are suitable for mums with babies and children over six months – up to any age!

Oh wow! That photograph has taken my breath away. Such a powerful image. Thank you. Both of our beautiful girls are IVF babies and my pregnancy with each of them was difficult and scary. They truly are our little miracles! Seeing that image of strength and motherhood is very emotional and amazing. I never thought I’d get to that. It’s brought me to tears. Happy ones!

ON THE DAY

I know a photoshoot like this can feel a bit daunting, so I’ll ease you and your children gently into the session. Bring your own outfits or make the most of the beautiful dresses and props we have in the studio. Please don’t be put off if you get nervous in front of the camera. I’m great at putting women at ease during these sessions and every pose we do (yes, we – I get involved too!) and outfit you put on is designed to make you look and feel at your best.

AFTER

If you’re up for it, you’ll have the option of a social media sneak peek that very evening! Then, a few weeks after your photoshoot, you’ll be invited back to the studio to see your beautiful gallery for the first time. You’ll get to see and touch the unique pieces of wall art on offer and see exactly how they’ll look on the walls of your home. This is when you’ll choose the packages and products you’d like to buy and make your final purchase.

Mummy and Me Photoshoot FAQs

Please don’t be put off if you get nervous in front of the camera. I’m great at putting women at ease during these sessions and every pose we do (yes, we – I get involved too!) and outfit you put on is designed to make you look and feel at your best.

Before your photoshoot

When will my photos be ready?

After your photoshoot, your photographs will be edited to my highest standards before being presented to you. This process typically takes three 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.

Can I pay for my session in instalments?

Yes! You are more than welcome to pay for your preferred photography package in monthly instalments in the run up to your session. Please let me know if you’d like to take advantage of this when booking your session. Payment plans can also be used to pay for your products after your view and order session, however no photographic products will be received until your invoice is paid in full.

ME/MY PARTNER/MY CHILD ARE POORLY, CAN WE STILL COME FOR OUR APPOINTMENT?

I have to be really careful not to pass on any nasty germs to the small babies that enter my studio so, please get in touch to reschedule. You won’t be charged and it’s much better to be safe rather than sorry.

CAN ALL MY CHILDREN GET INVOLVED?
Yes, absolutely!
WHAT AGE ARE MUMMY AND ME PHOTOSHOOTS FOR?

On the day

Where is your studio?

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.

Can I have my hair and make-up done?

Yes absolutely! I work with a fabulous hair and make-up artist who specialises in beautiful, natural make-up. Simply let me know you’d like to book when you get in touch.

After your photoshoot

What happens after my photoshoot?

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.

DO I HAVE TO BUY FROM ONE OF YOUR PACKAGES?

You are welcome to make a bespoke order, however there is a minimum spend equal to the package that you initially chose. 

Do I have to decide on my final order at the Reveal appointment?

Ideally, yes. The purpose of your Reveal Appointment is for you to sit back and enjoy your photographs and decide which collection is right for you. Additional ordering appointments may be requested, however a booking fee will apply.

What is the charity donation?
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 three charities in Gloucestershire that resonated with my values, Gloucestershire Bundles, The Family Haven and Footsteps Counselling and Care.
Will you use my images?
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.
