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!
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!

Yes of course. If you’d like a professional to take the reins with your hair and make-up, I can certainly arrange that for you. However please bear in mind that one of the key things we need to think about during these sessions is consistency, so it’s worth considering whether you’re ready to pay for full hair and make-up before each and every session.
The lady I work with is 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
The first thing to do is get in touch! Send me a message via my contact form and I’ll get back to you at a time that suits you. We’ll have a quick chat so that I can find out a bit more about you and the style of photographs that you’re drawn to, so that I can tailor your session accordingly. I know it can take courage to book a photoshoot where all the focus is on you so this consultation is also a great opportunity for you to get a feel for who I am and hopefully relax a little about what’s to come.
Providing you’re happy to go forwards, we’ll complete a standard contract that explains all the relevant terms and conditions and set up a payment plan. Please note that progress photograph sessions will not go ahead unless all payments are up to date.
Because clients can come to me at varying stages of their pregnancy, the total amount they pay for their collage will differ. That’s why the credit you receive is earned on a pro-rata basis. With each monthly payment made, you will receive a £5 contribution towards either a maternity or newborn photography session.

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.
Standard terms and conditions can be found here.
As much as we hate to think about things like this, it is understandably something at the forefront of our mind when we consider investing in our pregnancy in those early stages. I myself have experienced miscarriage and have talked a little about my thoughts on pregnancy collages in this blog post. Whatever happens with your pregnancy, you’ll (one day, if not now) be able to look back fondly on the excitement and happiness that your progress photographs represent.
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.
During your first session, we’ll take a little time to make sure that you are happy with the photograph that will set the benchmark for the rest of your sessions. After that, your progress photo sessions are going to super quick! Pop into the studio, I’ll grab the photo and you’ll be on your way again! Of course, if you’d like to stick around for a cuppa, you’ll be more more than welcome!
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.
