FINE ART STUDIO & Location SESSIONS
I love photographing families within the studio and on location whether thats a maternity session, a newborn session or when the kids have all grown up! For me its all about capturing natural moments between you and your family..I want you to be able to look back on these images for a lifetime.
My fine art sessions focuses on being natural…no distractions… just you and your family. These new shoots will be designed to be minimal and modern with my signature light and airy photography.
This guide has been put together so you can make the most out of these fine art sessions.
Pregnancy is an incredible time in your life..It's a time of anticipation and emotion….you body is changing as your wait to become a mother. These sessions are designed to capture this special moment in your life. Maternity Sessions are booked between 6-8 months. Partners are welcome to join you within the session.
These half an hour sessions are designed to make you feel comfortable and happy…you can either come to the studio or we can do the shoot from the comfort of your own home..ether way I will hunt out the white clean areas to create the fine art look you are after!

Your little one has arrived but they are not little for long! Its for this reason capturing this moment is so important..you want to remember how tiny their toes were and how their personality started in those first few days.
For newborn shoots I recommend booking as soon as you have your due date..we want to aim to have the first shoot within the first 2 weeks from birth.(Ideal time 5 - 10 days). These sessions are designed around your baby, we put 3 hours in so we have plenty of time for feeds, changing and some cuddles in between! We want little one to feel relaxed during the session.
We love to keep newborn sessions simple! These fine art sessions will focus on baby..we will use carefully selected props that will suit the style of these fine art sessions. We will also allow parents and siblings to join in on the fun! Please use the style guide below to find out what best to dress you and your family.
If you are booking a newborn session please do read through the TIPS below on how to prepare for the session. These tips really do make a difference to the overall success so please read!
I love capturing families…each unique in their own special way. For children over 3, I recommend a location shoot over a studio session. We want to encourage play and fun…we could be running up and down the lavender, playing hide and seek..whatever it takes to get those natural fun images!
You can book in for a family session at any time of the year however I will be running several mini sessions throughout the year which are perfect for small children! These include..bluebells minis, spring minis, lavender minis and autumn minis
To find out what to wear take a look at our style guide below..
Cake Smash Sessions
Birthdays are for celebrating and what better way that with a birthday cake smash session! Our cake smash sessions all include a beautiful decorated cake and simple props to suit our new fine art shoots, you will also have the opptotunity to have baby bath photos!
Our cake smash sessions are clean and comtempory as we like to focus our attention on the little one and the cake! We don’t like to overcrowd the backdrop with distracting props however we are always open to ideas so if you would prefer more props please discuss any props that you would like to incorporate and we can add these within the shoot.
So for the cakes! All our cakes are baked with you in mind, when you fill out your booking questionnaire you will have selected a colour preference for your cake. Please note all the cakes are simple victoria sponge cakes with icing, if you would like to request the ingredients you will need to let us ahead of the shoot day. We do not take responsibility for allergies and therefore if your child has allergies you will need to supply your own cake for the shoot.
On shoot day please bring with you outfits for you little one (for styling advice please use style guide below), lots of wipes to clean your little one up, any props you would like to bring and have a think about there favourite songs! I like to play songs to keep the atmosphere a fun playful session! If you would like to end the session with a baby bath session please bring baby wash and a towel…we will supply the rest needed for the shoot!
My style is light, bright and relaxed and what you wear can really compliment the shoot! So I have popped together style guide to help you..
Maternity Sessions - For Maternity Sessions I tend to recommend dresses as they are the most flattering in images, if you are not a fan of dresses then I suggest a plain top…whites or pastels colours work best. If you want to do some bare bump photos then I suggest a light cardigan and plain bra and underwear…It is important that you are comfortable and happy in what you are wearing. If you want to bring a couple of options feel free! Within the studio we also have collection of flower crowns! For these fine art sessions I suggest plain clothing, no logos and If possible whites or follow the colour chart below.
Newborn Sessions - For Newborns sessions we will be wrapping baby in some of our huge collection of wraps / using hats and flower crowns so you don’t need to worry however if possible please bring with you some plain white vests..ideally footless so we can get some natural shots of them too! For parents / siblings I suggest plain clothing, no logos and If possible whites or follow the colour chart below.
Cake Smash Sessions - We like to keep our cake smash sessions simple but if you want to be creative with ideas thats okay too! If your after a simple fine art shoot then we recommend plan colours using the style guide below. Alternatively If you want to dress in ONE outfits then go for it!
Location Sessions - For family location sessions, I suggest whites or pastels, try to coordinate your outfits and ultimately dress for your surroundings! For example If wellies are needed wear wellies :D
