The Sessions

A time to celebrate the wonder of your body as you embark on the cusp of motherhood. I just adore these sessions, on your own or bring the kids and partner.

Newborn : From £199

Beautiful, timeless pictures of your newborn with yourselves and their siblings or on their own. Capturing all the closeups of important details, expressions and tender embraces. By adopting an organic approach to capturing your newborn the images are soulful and comforting with the focus being on your bond and their natural baby goodness.

Taking place in my natural light filled home studio or in your own home. For the warmer months I also offer these on location, babies surrounded by fields of long grass is just magical.

Motherhood / Family : From £149

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 a time to capture your unique bond.

Let the littles stay up late and chase the sunset, through fields of long grass or snuggle up and watch the sunrise over the beach.

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. These are the moments that matter, the ones you will want to preserve long after the moment has passed. I will always guide you when in front of the camera, so don't worry about feeling awkward, I promise you this is an absolutely natural concern that everyone has!


Outdoor sessions where the kids can roam freely can be taken at one of my scouted locations around Essex 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.


Client Closet

Styling adds so much to an image, and I want to make the process of selecting what to wear for your pictures as easy as possible.

You have full use during the sessions of my client closet for yourself and your newborn/baby. I have a small variety of dresses, wraps, swaddles and nappy covers to compliment you both and can offer styling advice if you don't see any thing you like from my closet.

All items can be picked out before the session and I will bring them steamed and ready to wear .

They can all be viewed by clicking here.

The Next Steps

Send me an enquiry with what type of session you would like, when you would like to plan your session and any other details you think I should know. I will get back to you with available dates.

Once we choose a date that works best I will send through your invoice and contract. After your deposit is paid and contract is signed, I am all yours. You will then receive your prep guide and pre session questionnaire.

I will arrive early to the session to judge the surroundings and get prepped, allowing everyone to settle in quickly and say hello to everyone before I start shooting. Any items from my client closet you wish to use will be steamed and ready to use.

Straight after your session I get your images backed up, then get to work on culling your images down to the very best. From here I then edit those images to my own personal style.

I will send you your private online gallery two weeks after your session. Here you can download your 10 images , share to social media or amongst friends and family.

Downloads are available as both social media ready files and high resolution for printing.

When you receive your online gallery you also gain access to the online store.

From here you can order your full gallery as an additional add on or purchase selected print products.

I can help you with anything you need such as album design, frames and prints.

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 2 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.
