Do you want a keepsake of the miracle of pregnancy and the first few weeks of your newborn’s life? Maybe your children are growing up too quickly and you want to preserve the moment? Perhaps you have a special anniversary or celebration you want to record? You’d like a memorable gift for someone who has everything? Or, you would like a piece of artwork to hang in your home and you can’t think of anything nicer than a wonderful family portrait.
Booking your photo shoot
A natural light, indoor or outdoor lifestyle photo shoot will give you the best results. Your children might enjoy revisiting a favourite haunt, or maybe their curiosity about somewhere new would make for more interesting photographs. Maternity sessions, or mums with new arrivals, generally feel more contented being photographed in their home environment; partners and children are welcome to join in.
Your photoshoot will be an unforgettable experience: an opportunity for your family to relax and enjoy a couple of carefree hours together. Whether you're wandering along the banks of a nearby river, nestled in your favourite hideaway at home or strolling through ancient woodland, I’ll put everyone at ease.
Your home viewing
Two weeks later, we’ll arrange a viewing. Relax on your favourite sofa at home, turn down the lights (I might even bring you some fresh popcorn) and let me start the slideshow of the best images from your shoot. This absorbing visual display is better than any movie you’ll ever watch. It's also my favourite part of the process.
Preserving your memories
You can choose how to present your favourite images perfectly with our fully customised frames and handcrafted albums. I bring along samples of frames, albums and acrylics to show you, and I can project your images with a frame surround so you get an idea of how they'll look. When you’ve decided on the detail and placed your order, it will take around three weeks until your hand-finished artwork is ready for delivery.
From the time of booking, until you step back to admire the stunning family portraits in your home, you’ll receive a quality, bespoke service.
