Can my husband/partner and other children take part?

Yes

Can other members of my family take part?

Absolutely. The session fee accommodates up to 4 people. Additional participants are welcome at £15 per person.

What if my baby doesn’t sleep during the session?

If you use the tips I provide you with and your baby is warm, fed and content – he/she will often fall asleep. It may take a while but I have some well practised (top secret) techniques which usually work and help keep my title of ‘the baby whisperer’. This is also the reason why shoots can take up to 4 hours.

We love a particular picture in your gallery; can we have something like that?

If there are any particular images you’ve seen in my portfolio that you want me to try and achieve please let me know beforehand so I can bring the relevant equipment and props. I will do my utmost to achieve this for you but it just depends how willing baby is on the day. I will never force a pose as this is reflected in the images.

What if he/she has a little ‘accident’ during the shoot?

PLEASE don’t worry about this. There has not been one session where we haven’t had a few accidents – it’s all part of it and gets a few giggles as it’s like a game of Russian Roulette! Really, it’s not a problem; I bring plenty of blankets for this very reason. Just have some baby wipes or cotton wool & water on hand…

What about clothes?

Please see my ‘What to Wear’ section

What if my child doesn’t smile?

Please don’t feel that I will expect you to help make your child ‘perform’ and ‘be good’. Don’t worry and try to relax as your child may be shy to begin with and be reluctant to have photos taken. When your child sees me interacting with you as the parents, I will become someone who can be trusted. Once trust is established, your child should feel comfortable in my presence and smiles should come naturally. Every finger crossed!

Will the photos be retouched?

Minor blemishes will be subtly healed

What happens after the session?

2-3 weeks after your session you will be emailed a link to your online private gallery where you can view and order your pictures. I will then contact you to discuss which image you would like as part of your package and help you create beautiful products if this is something you require.

Will my photos be used on your website?

I will always ask your permission before I display images on my website.

Can I buy gift vouchers?

Absolutely. A professional photography session makes the perfect gift. You can purchase gift vouchers here and give someone the gift of memories.

What payment methods do you accept?

Methods of payment including cash, cheque, internet bank transfers, debit and credit cards via PayPal.

Do you do weddings?

I don’t undertake weddings as I prefer to leave this to the many specialists out there already doing an amazing job. If I was getting married again, I’d choose either Aga Tomaszek or Sacha Miller to do my wedding photography.
