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.

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.
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.

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? What if you could capture all the fun and preserve those precious moments so that you can always look back fondly on your time together in this beautiful part of the country? That’s exactly what the Cotswold Photography Trail is for! Click here to find out more.
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
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. 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).
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.
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.
