lifestyle child & family photography sessions

wear your heart on your walls

I offer two types of portrait photography sessions, which are outlined below.  Both are 'lifestyle' location sessions that allow your family to relax, have fun together and create photographs with soul, love and laughter.

Bespoke Sessions are my most popular, these take place at a location of your choosing; they can start at home (great for the camera shy) and then move on to a local park; your garden; or anywhere you love spending time together. 

If you are not sure that lifestyle photography is for you then a Park Portrait Session might be a good place to start, these are shorter sessions at one of four locations, close to where I live in Derby.

With either session we will have a pre-session consultation, there will be guidance on what to wear and your viewing, 7-10 days afer your session.

You can read about portrait products HERE; be assured here is never any pressure, just purchase what you love.

Bespoke child & family sessions

Spend an unhurried and fun hour or two, capturing your family’s love and unique personalities.  Creating beautiful images of your family, that will make you smile each day and will grow more and more precious with each passing year.

So you can simply relax and be yourself on the day, we will need to plan a little.  During your pre-shoot consultation we will chat about your family, your pets, timing, location, weather, wardrobe as well as your hopes for your session.  More about sessions >>
