What to expect


What to expect before the shoot

An email or telephone call to discuss the date, time & venue of the shoot.

A follow-up email to confirm the above and info on what to wear and what to expect.

Session fee is due at time of booking please –  your session is only confirmed once payment has been taken.

I will be in contact you a day or two before the shoot to confirm the weather forecast if it is an outdoors shoot.

You can contact me anytime for more information or to ask questions.


What to expect during the shoot

Whether your shoot is outside, in your home or in my studio you can expect a fun, relaxed and enjoyable time  – I want to capture the real you ~ So just be yourself and enjoy!

I will spend a bit of time getting to know you and your children and finding out what ideas you may have for any photos.

The session will last between 1-2 hours depending on  – the type of shoot you have booked, how many people are in the shoot, ages of the children/babies, number of outfit changes, tea breaks!

It is a good idea to bring snacks { bribes }, a favourite teddy or toy.  An outfit change/ a change of top/add a hat, pair of sunnies, scarf, wellies, tutu’s ~ This helps vary the shots.  Aanything goes as long as you and your children have fun!

Please remember most toddlers have tantrums, most newborns wee/ poo/ puke on me at some point! I have seen it all, I am a mum and I am no longer shocked!

Some times the best shots are the real natural ones ~ so don’t worry if you think we aren’t getting any – I take a few hundred shots in a session and always get lovely images.

Check out the what to wear guide for more info or email me!
