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.

I was looking for a photographer for a family photo because my family is becoming bigger. I thank God, and I believe time waits for no man. A photo is for life but a man isn’t. Katie did that for me and they are beautiful…best. She explained everything about the shooting and what happens after. She is the best.
We had a photo shoot with Katie last weekend and I was really impressed! Katie was really friendly and chilled, she knew that my step son was very camera shy and she did a fantastic job with him. She took lots of natural shots so we didn’t even realise she was taking photos, which really helped with my step son. She managed to get him to smile!! And we have some really lovely family photos to cherish. Thanks Katie!
We had an autumn mini shoot with Katie and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were hoping to get a nice family photo and were left spoilt for choice, Katie captured some beautiful photos and was professional from start to finish. Thank you Katie for giving us some amazing photos we will cherish, cant wait to get them printed and on the wall now.

This year, why not head to one of these beautiful locations for some really special family photographs? These seasonal specials are bookable with a £69 session fee.
Cotswold Lavender farm is a stunning location for a family photoshoot. The lavender is only in full bloom for a handful of weeks each summer and is truly a sight to behold. Typically the lavender is at its best early to mid July, however this does vary slightly from year to year. Sessions can be pre-booked at any point throughout the year, with dates confirmed once the farm has released its opening times for the year.
In addition to offering autumn photoshoots in the local area, this year I’ll be heading a bit further afield to offer family photo sessions at the spectacular Westonbirt Arboretum. If you thought the colours in this photograph were beautiful, then you’re in for a treat at Westonbirt!
Are you looking for a unique experience where you can take some time out as a family to explore the sights that the Cotswolds has to offer?

That’s exactly what the Cotswold Photography Trail is for! Click here to find out more.

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.

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.
