FOR THE FAMILIES

Family, Newborn, Maternity and Motherhood

Mamas...

My goal is for you to feel empowered in your journey through motherhood by preserving those fleeting moments and always including you in the narrative.

Tomorrow doesn't wait..

The Experience

I believe the best pictures come from letting your session evolve organically. By taking a storytelling approach I can capture your connection, embracing the soulful moments that happen in the blink of an eye.


During my sessions there are no rules, no expectations, no forced expressions or smiles. Just hang out and use the time to connect, wander, collect shells, read books or dance in the waves of long grass because these are the moments that matter, the ones you will want to preserve long after the moment has passed.


Outdoor sessions can be taken at one of my scouted locations at sunrise or sunset. Beachy vibes with pregnant belly's or lounging in the long grass whilst feeding babies make for some stunning memorable moments.


You have full use during the sessions of my client closet for yourself and your newborn. I have a variety of dresses, wraps, swaddles and nappy covers to compliment you both and can fully style the session unique to you.

The studio


Newborn and Motherhood sessions can take place in my light filled home studio. A cosy sanctuary for you and your newborn to relax in, during your session... All you have to do is turn up and I will create a beautiful simple set and provide endless tea and biscuits. We work through the session, letting your baby lead. Feed as needed and have some cuddle time whilst I snap away.



The Sessions

Maternity: £149

A time to celebrate the wonder of your body as you embark on the cusp of motherhood.

Newborn: £219

Beautiful, natural pictures of your newborn with yourselves and their siblings. Capturing all the closeups of important details, expressions and tender embraces. By adopting an organic approach to capturing your newborn the images are more soulful and baby led, which I believe creates a more relaxed baby and produces a more authentic image.

These sessions take place in my relaxing home studio.



Motherhood / Family: £199

An hour for you as a mother or family to connect, nurture and love on your littles whilst I capture these memories. Perfect for milestone, breastfeeding sessions or just to capture your family along your journey.

FAQ

When should I schedule my maternity or newborn Session?

It is generally recommended to schedule maternity photographs between weeks 27 and 30 of your pregnancy. At this time your bump is nice and round but you are not yet completely exhausted and possibly swollen, fed-up and over it. Booking at this time also reduces the likelihood of you missing out on capturing your bump if your little one makes an early arrival.

Newborns sessions typically take place before baby is 10 days old. After this they are generally more awake and fussy. However, the beauty of a lifestyle session is they can really take place when baby is older and still be a wonderful experience. But please remember any older and the super sleepy shots will likely be impossible.
If you can book as early as you know your date this means I can jot your date in my diary and keep the space free. Obviously baby will come when they decide and we can reschedule as needed, but a rough date to work from is always helpful.

How do I secure my Date?

A non-refundable deposit of 50% of the session cost is due at the time of booking and secures your session date. The remainder is due 7 days before the session.

Do you offer prints?

Quality of craft is so incredibly important to me, I want the images I take to look timeless and outstanding both aesthetically and as a printed product. All printing rights are included in your package purchase, but that being said please consider that not all print labs are created equal. The print labs I choose have been carefully selected for their quality and museum standard ink longevity.

Your prints should outlive you and not look a days different from when they were first printed. You can purchase prints directly through me from your gallery. I can also offer advice on where best to get your own prints fulfilled and what sizes will best fit your display needs

If you are interested in capturing memories of yourself, your family connection or your Newborn, contact me below and we can get your date secured.

LIFE ISN'T PERFECT BUT IT CAN BE DAMN BEAUTIFUL AND A LITTLE BIT WILD ALONG ITS JOURNEY.
