Relaxed, natural and heartwarming portraiture
If you are like me then you blink and your children grow up in front of your eyes! The missing front teeth, the way they hold your hand, the chubby cheeks, or that slightly awkward teenage smile.
I am passionate about telling the story of your family and creating beautiful artwork that will last you a lifetime.
I know that life is busy and planning a shoot seems like a lot of work. However I am here to do the hard work for you. From the first email enquiry to the delivery of your final artwork I will be there to help and guide you each step of the way.
Your shoot will be relaxed, full of fun and laughter and a chance for me to capture your personalities and the little things that make your family unique.
Karen and Rodney
Blown away by our recent pictures. We are so delighted with them- they are just amazing. Our second set of photos from Judy and cannot recommend her enough. We were all made to feel at ease and had so much fun capturing our pictures. The hardest part was choosing the pictures for the wall gallery as we loved them all so much!
Lynn and Richard
Richard, the boys and myself have had a great time on our photo sessions led by yourself over the last 3 years. We’ve returned to you each year as not only are the photos AMAZING but you capture the boy’s personality so well! You make us feel so relaxed and manage to get the best out of the boys -even for that split second which you manage to capture. The pre-shoot information and advice over wardrobe choices and location is invaluable and the whole experience is fun and friendly.
Hayley and Mark
From the outset Judy wanted to know what we were hoping to achieve with the session and she couldn’t have gotten it more right. Everything felt very natural and not too posed, she just managed to capture those special moments. Professional from start to finish but very personable, warm and always smiling!
Rachael and Rob
My husband and I fell in love with the stunning heart-warming images that Judy created from our family photo session. She has captured our family perfectly and has produced beautiful natural images in which the personalities of our children shine through. Judy is such a fun person to work with and really cares about what you wish to get from your shoot. These images will be treasured for years to come!

About your shoot
Your shoot will take place outdoors in the Aberdeen/shire area. My shoots take place in the morning or towards sunset to capture the best and most flattering light for your portraits.
Your shoot will take around an hour and it will be a relaxed experience. As a trained primary school teacher and a mum to 3 boys I am confident and relaxed around your children.
How do I prepare for the shoot
We will meet together for coffee or chat over the phone were you can tell me all about your family and what you hope for me to capture during our time together. I will guide you on what to wear. You will also receive a Welcome Pack to browse though with lots of tips on preparing for your session.
The Session Fee is £150 for a weekend or £95 for a weekday (Monday to Friday)
This fee includes:
- planning session and welcome pack
- your on-location photography session 1-2 hours
- editing and retouching of your images
- viewing and ordering appointment around 2 weeks after your photo shoot
The Session Fee is payable to secure your booking. **The Session Fee does not include prints, products or digital files.
Around two weeks after your session we will conduct a viewing and ordering session. This is an exciting moment where I will show you around 30 beautifully edited and retouched images. They will be a mixture of vibrant colour images and also a select few images in black and white. From these images you can select which prints and art products you would like to order. There is no hard sell and you are free to order only what you LOVE!
You can choose to display your images in a leather album, a wall gallery, a folio box of prints and /or digital files. Most of my clients typically invest between £500 to £2000 on their chosen artwork.
