FALL IN LOVE WITH YOUR PORTRAITS.
I am a huge fan of printed photographs. They live in our lives like digital files cannot. They are always on display, there as a reminder, 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 (ask me about their 75 year plus, longevity guarantees). Your portraits will still look as good hanging on the walls of your grandchildren's homes, as the day you received them. 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, with most of my printed items, I also include digital copies of the images printed, as your complementary gift, and a basic digital package is also available.
You can find below the session fees & package ranges for the most popular photoshoot sessions I offer.
After each session, I invite you to view your shortlisted gallery of images and chose which package and images you would like to take home. During this viewing, I can help guide you on image choices, and how on you might display the portraits at home based on your tastes and your needs. Time and again, this guidance is one of the things my families say they love the most about viewing their images with me.

NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY SESSIONS.
These shoots usually take place when your baby is between about 5 days and 15 days 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 3-4 hours and usually take place in the comfort of my purpose-built studio in East London (10 mins from Stratford and Canary Wharf, 1 min walk from Star Lane DLR). Your newborn session fee contributes to 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 around 30 beautiful images of your new baby & family, and finally our viewing & ordering session a few weeks later, at which you can decide which portraits 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 the digital only package up to £1500. As a guide, most of my newborn clients invest around £650-£950 on products & images following their newborn photography session. 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. 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 AND SPLASH PHOTOSHOOTS.
Birthday sessions consist of lively, fun and hopefully messy photography in my comfy studio capturing a series of photos of your little one in a birthday themed setting. Each session comprises of three parts: some themed portraits of your baby before the cake comes out, then the fun and destruction (hopefully) of a birthday cake, followed by some images of your baby in a bath tub during the clean up process; splashing and playing with the bubbles. My studio is the perfect environment for these shoots, as it has all the facilities we will need (plus fabulous cake bakers, FairyPan, next door in case you want to order a bespoke cakesmash cake). For allergy reasons, I ask parents to provide their own cake, but I do provide plenty of guidance on what type of cake to choose, co-create a theme for the shoot with you, offer use of my large props, decorations and backdrops collection, as well as providing you with hints and tips for preparing for the day.
Birthday session fee - £150 (covers preparation, theme planning, the session itself (themed baby portraits, cake smash and splash) and meeting afterwards at my studio to view and order from your gallery of around 20 edited images). Packages range from £250-£650.
