Hi there!

So you want to book in a session? well here is where I can tell you all you need to know about your specific session.

Bonus is that unless you have chosen for a location session, all sessions are done in your own home! All I need is a 6ft space to take up with my studio style backdrop.

Session Fee

Each session is £45, this is non-refundable and secures your booking. This fee will need to be paid as soon as you want to book your session, this can be done via card (over the phone) or a bank transfer. If something was to happen and your little one or yourself is ill and you need to reschedule you may reschedule once and transfer your session fee to a different day and time, if needed to be rescheduled again for a second time then there will be another £45 session charge.   

 

Family and children sessions

If you have chosen a studio style in your own home the first thing I do when I come into your home is find out where the biggest room is, usually this is the family room or the dining area. I will need a min of 5-6ft space to place my backdrop, light and have enough room to move around or there is the option to do a location session which is usually done in Melton Mowbray country park or Bradgate park in Leiester. I like to start with the family first to get them used to me whilst still having the comfort of mum and dad with them. I will then take you away and focus on little one, by this time they should be smiling and laughing away at my silly faces.

I may ask if you have any toys for them to play with, any favourite teddies or books and maybe even a outfit change. A family session will only take around 1 hour but it will be a fun filled 1 hour so please book your session after nap time or way before so your little one is at their happiest.

Choose clothing carefully. Long gone is the look of a whole family in jeans and white shirt. I recommend a coordinated look while avoiding looking “matchy matchy.” Think similar, coordinating colours but with the same pop of colour here and there. If you would like me to take a look at your outfit choices before the session, you’re welcomed to send me some photos!

Once done with the session I will edit all your images and arrange a time to come show you them, there you will choose which package you would like to go for. It is full payment for the images at the end of the viewing stage this can be done via card, a bank transfer or cash. Once paid I will complete your order and personally deliver them to you within 14 days. Packages can be found on the prices page.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in contact.

 

Cake smash session

Cake smash sessions are generally booked no more than a month before your child’s actual birthday. We will start the session by having some family images taken or if you would prefer to have just little one is fine, this will take around 15 minutes and then I will have just little one and get a few of them with some ‘one’ letters and even a few of them casually sitting or standing before introducing the cake.

I would recommend having a outfit for the family photograph part of the session and then another for the cake. For the cake part I do have a couple of tutu’s for girls and a nappy cover for boys if you would like me to bring them, otherwise a ‘I am one’ vest looks great.

I love a good theme, but prefer to keep it minimal. For me as an artist, it is more important to focus on your baby rather than the decorations so I usually opt for a bunting on a white background. Giant cupcakes or small-tiered cakes photograph best. Remember the baby will be smashing the cake into a thousand pieces. I recommend having a look in asda or tesco at their selection. Maybe buy 1 a week before the session and test it out with little and to see how they take to it, it will also help them get used to the new food.

The cake smashing will take around 20 minutes and will be very funny to watch little ones reactions to having icing everywhere and so much cake to chose from. After we are happy with the image we have got I will start to pack away whilst little one has a quick bath.

Once done with the session I will edit all your images and arrange a time to come show you them, there you will choose which package you would like to go for. It is full payment for the images at the end of the viewing stage this can be done via card, a bank transfer or cash.. Once paid I will complete your order and personally deliver them to you within 7 days. Packages can be found on the prices page.
