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!
Beautiful photography. Katie is a fantastic photographer and creates amazing images. She put me completely at ease, I normally get very anxious having my photo taken. I highly recommend.
Amazing lady- really friendly and super with children. Also makes you feel so comfortable whether it’s for posing in a maternity shoot or with your family. The photos are such a great quality too.
Had the most amazing time at our first Mummy and Me shoot with Katie. Katie had prepped the studio beautifully, we were well looked after, and the experience so warm and welcoming. I was made to feel like a goddess!!! Today i had the opportunity to view the photos from the session – I was so in awe of Katie’s work, I cried. The pictures are amazing, every family needs a shoot with Katie. I can’t wait to book family sessions, and document milestones with Katie. Thank you so much.

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. Just ask if this is something you’d like me to arrange for you.
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.
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.
I’ve written a blog post detailing the additional precautions in place due to COVID-19. If you have any questions about something that I haven’t covered, then please do not hesitate to ask.
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.
Mummy and Me sessions are suitable for mums with babies and children over six months – up to any age!
Standard terms and conditions can be found here.
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.
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.
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.
