Hi there!

I can tell you all you need to know about your specific session on this page.

The 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 for my studio style backdrop.


Session Fee


 

Each session is £50, 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 £50 session charge.   


Family and children sessions


 

Studio style sessions are done in your own home, the first thing I do when I come into your home is choose the biggest room. Usually, this is the family room or the dining area. A minimum of 5-6ft space is required to place my backdrop, light and also have enough room to move around.

There is the option to do a location session which is usually done in Melton Mowbray country park or my favorite is Bradgate park in Leicester. I like to start with the family first to get them comfortable with me, whilst still having the comfort of their mum and dad with them. I will then take you to the side and focus on little one, by this time they should be smiling and laughing away at my silly faces.

If you have any toys for them to play with, any favorite teddies or books this is great to get them involved. A family session will take around 1 hour. This will be a fun-filled 1 hour so please book your session after nap time so your little one is at their happiest.


Clothing


 

Clothing options for your photo shoot is a big decision so I recommend a coordinated look while avoiding looking “matchy-matchy”. Think similar, coordinating colors but with the same pop of color here and there. If you would like me to take a look at your outfit choices before the session, you’re welcome to send me some photos.


After the session


 

Once we are done with the session I will edit all your images and arrange a time to come show them to you. I will also help you choose which package would suit your home and decide on your favorite images.

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. I will then 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 will start by having some family images taken or just little one is fine. This will take around 15 minutes and then little one for their portraits. This includes a few of them with some ‘one’ letters and a few of them casually sitting or standing. We can also do an outfit change if you wish before introducing the cake.

I would recommend having an outfit for the family photograph part of the session and then another for the cake.  I do have a couple of tutus for girls and a nappy cover for boys for the cake smash. If you would like me to bring them, otherwise an ‘I am one’ vest or a plain white 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. Your little one 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, to see how they take to it. 


The smash


The cake smashing will take around 20 minutes. This will be very funny to watch. The reactions to eating their cake and getting it all over their little faces is hilarious. After we are happy with the images we have got I will start to pack away whilst little one has a quick bath. If you would like me to photograph this part it is an additional £25. 


After


 

When we are finished with the session I will edit all your images and also arrange a time to view them. At this time we will choose which package you would like to go for. Full payment for the images is due 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.

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