Although most of my portrait sessions take place in the studio, I also offer outdoor family photography throughout Gloucestershire. Heading outside offers a more natural feel to studio photography and can make for a less daunting experience for younger children. With minimal direction and posing, the sessions are focused on your family at its best. Enjoy a stroll, let the kids run around and I’ll be there to capture the moments that make you YOU.

Yes! If you fancy making your maternity 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).
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.
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 aren’t happy with your photographs, I will happily refund your deposit. I can happily report that 100% of my clients have loved their photographs!
Orders must 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.
Family photoshoots can take place at any time in your family’s life but honestly, the best time is now! Don’t put it off in the hope that a perfect day will come; you might end up regretting that decision. Let me help you to celebrate family life as it is now!
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 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.
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.
