All lifestyle shoots begin by chatting over a cup of tea and choosing outfits together to make sure you look your best in the photos. If you would like professional hair and make-up this can be arranged. Please allow 2 and a half hours for the session.
A few weeks after the shoot, once your images are edited, you will be invited to a viewing where you will choose the images you would like in an album and as framed pictures or canvases on your wall.
Maternity and Baby
Pregnancy is such a special time in a woman's life, full of anticipation and excitement - and a beautiful bump! Many women feel their most feminine and gorgeous during pregnancy, and it is wonderful to have photographs to remember this significant time. The maternity part of the shoot takes place at around 35 weeks, at your home.
Then of course when the baby arrives it's so important to capture their tiny features and cute expressions. As a mother myself I know these are images that you will treasure forever. Again, I come to your home and we fit in around your baby's sleeping and feeding routine. Ideally the shoot is done in the first 6 weeks to capture their lovely newborn look.
Families and Children
The lifestyle portraiture experience is about photographing your family in a natural and beautiful way, in a comfortable and relaxed environment. Rather than forced smiles in a studio against a white backdrop, we go outdoors and play! Children respond so much better to being photographed when they are having fun, doing what they would do naturally. So whether it's splashing in puddles in the woods, skipping through meadows of wild flowers or collecting shells on the beach, I aim to capture beautiful images of your family where their personalities shine through. The result is gorgeous photographs to hang on your walls or albums and coffee-table books for you to treasure forever.
