NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY SESSIONS.
These shoots usually take place when your baby is between about 5 days and two-three weeks new. Respecting your baby's comfort and safety are my priorities (I have received training to handle your baby safely); for this reason I never rush a session and allow for plenty of cuddles and feeding time as needed. Sessions usually last 2-4 hours and can take place in the comfort of your own home (up to 20 mins local travel time included in the session fee) or in the comfort of my home in Bow. Your newborn session fee covers our pre-shoot consultations, my time and experience on the shoot to settle & position your baby safely to capture those precious first memories, use of my props (some unique items, handmade by myself), hand-editing a gallery of at least ten distinct images (but usually closer to 20-30) of your new baby & family, and finally coming back to see you a couple of weeks later to share your images with you in a viewing & ordering session at which you can decide which memories you would like to buy.
Newborn photography session fee £95 - excludes prints / digital files. Various print and digital packages are available starting from £350 for digital only packages. Please enquire for details.
CAPTURING BIRTHDAY PARTIES.
Party shoots consist of discreet lifestyle photography capturing candid images and and key moments (e.g. blowing out the candles), as well as the option for more formal group and family shots. Birthday sessions include up to 20 mins local travel time and set up. All packages include a set number of high resolution, edited images as digital downloads. Further digital images and prints can be purchased separately.
Birthday party photography starts from £160.
BIRTHDAY CAKE SMASH / SMASH AND SPLASH PHOTOSHOOTS.
Birthday sessions consist of lively, fun and hopefully messy photography in the studio capturing a series of photos of your little one in a birthday themed setting. Cake smash sessions include the fun and destruction (hopefully) of a birthday cake. Smash and splash sessions which are a little longer, also include photography of your baby in a bath tub afterwards, splashing and playing with bubbles (and getting a bit clean). The studio space is the perfect environment for these shoots, as it is also a nursery and so has all the facilities we could need. All packages include a set number of high resolution, edited images as digital downloads. Further digital images and prints can be purchased separately. For allergy reasons, I ask parents to provide their own cake, but I do provide plenty of guidance on what type of cake as well as helping to develop themes for the shoot, and providing hints and tips for preparing for the day.
Cake smash sessions start from £145.
Smash and splash sessions start from £185.
MASTER YOUR DLSR CAMERA CLASS.
Want better photos of the family, but want to capture them yourself? This is a practical class hands-on, one to one class to help understand the theory and master your camera. We can tailor the session to make it relevant to what you need, covering topics like: key camera settings: ISO, F stop, shutter speed; composition tricks; sharper focus; light: using flash & natural light; picking a lens etc. Makes a superb gift for any new parent or grandparent. Can also be tailored to compact camera users. Includes up to 20 mins local travel time in addition to session time.
Classes start from £65 for 45 mins.
PHOTOSHOOT GIFT CERTIFICATES.
I'm delighted to also offer gift certificates (to your choice of value) for gifting photoshoots. Please get in touch for more details.
I am a huge fan of printed photographs. They live in our lives like digital files cannot. They are always on display, always there as a reminder, always evoking those feelings of love for our families. The professional labs I use to print and create these products all use superior inks and materials which are proven to stand the test of time. Your portraits will still look as good as the day you got them, hanging on the walls of your grandchildren's homes. The products, service and quality offered by my printers simply cannot be matched by the high street.
Of course, I understand that in this digital age, many people also want jpegs of their images for social media etc. For this reason, when you order a printed item of wall art, an album or a portfolio box, I also include digital copies of the images printed, as your complementary gift. Naturally I also sell the digital files.
All shoots include:
- My time, guidance and expertise before and during the shoot
- Up to 20 mins return travel time, if attending at your home or another location
