Choose Your Date

You have looked around my website and like the style of images you see. You know the time is right to update your family portaits. All you need to do is get in touch via the contact tab or the phone and choose your preferred date. Once your Session Fee is paid you are booked and confirmed in my diary. You and me….we have a date!

Let’s Chat

We will arrange a mutually convenient time for us to have a cuppa together and plan your shoot. We will spend half an hour where you can tell me all about your family. We will also discuss what images you would love to receive, where we will go for your shoot, tips on what to wear and some ideas on how you might like to display your images.

The Day Before

We will speak together via email or telephone to confirm the time and place to meet or to reschedule should the weather be rainy. Lay out your outfits and make sure you haven’t forgotten anything!

The Shoot

The day has arrived! We will spend an hour or two together where you will be having fun, playing games and interacting in a natural way and I will be there to capture it all. Enjoy!

The Reveal

Around 2 weeks after your shoot we will meet together in my studio where you will watch a slideshow of your images. In that hour together we will choose your favourite portraits. We will design Wall Galleries, choose framing options, sort out prints for family etc all with my expert help and guidance. Payment is required at this point. Payment plans are available on request.


Wait just 4 weeks and your beautiful images will be ready to hang on your walls. Come and collect or we can arrange delivery.
