Frequently Asked Questions

What are the photography sessions that you offer?

I photograph maternity, baby, toddler, birthday, children , family and outdoor sessions which are either in my home studio or on location.

Which days do you work?

Depending on availability my studio sessions are usually between 10am until 2pm during the week and 10am until 4pm at weekends   

Location sessions are generally either first thing or late afternoon / early evening to ensure the light is just right for your photoshoot. When the sun is low it gives off a beautiful glow.

Times can be flexible. 

What if my child doesn's play ball?

The good thing about these sessions is they dont need to sit still and smile. I like to keep them feeling relaxed and above all make it fun with lots of distractions. If that fails i have gaffer tape.
I am a Mum (of a threenager ( that says it all! ) so i know kids usually save their best ever tantrums for when you are somewhere public!
It happens. Thats why wine was invented.

What should we wear?
How long will my session last?

Every session is different and I always let the little ones take the lead.  Some little ones are shy so I like to take my time and let them warm up first.  From experience though,  I would allow 1.5 hours for a studio or location photoshoot or up to 2 hours for a cake smash session.

Is parking available at your studio?

Yes! My lovely custom built studio is in my garden in Eastwood, Leigh On Sea. I will usually have a space on my drive for you, but if not you can find a space along my road.

How many images do you take?

I take a good variety of images and after the culling process (eyes closed, multiple images of the same poses etc) I am left with the best images from your session.

These are the images I will hand edit and place in your gallery ready for you to view.

How long will it be until I can see my photos?

This is around 14 days from the day of your shoot.  Editing of galleries is done in order of session dates. 

Products may take around 21 days from ordering (dependant on product ordered) 

This all sounds AMAZING, I don’t think I can contain my excitement for a second longer! how do I book?

Weekends do fill up in advance, so contact me as soon as you have decided to book a photoshoot with me.

Cake Smash & Splash sessions need to be booked around 3 weeks in advance to ensure I have all the décor needed, and to book with my wonderful cake lady.

There is a £50 booking fee which reserves your session date & time. You can then select the package that suits you best. The remining balance is due before the day of your photoshoot.

Frequently Asked Dad Questions(!) 

Do I get to take the cake home after my babies cake smash session ?

Yes… unless your beautiful baby eats it all or dribbles all over it (although that doesn’t stop some!

How much is this going to cost?

Deduct half of the package prices shown because “this old thing has been in the back of the cupboard for ages / It was in the sale ”

**You cant actually deduct half of the package **

Do I have to miss the football for the photoshoot?

Nope! Because I have free Wi-Fi available in my studio

Do I really have to be in the family photos?

Yep! Oh, and the quicker you admit defeat and accept that your partner and I will basically force you ask you nicely to be in some the better. You will get a sticker though if I think you have done well

Can you make me look like Tom Hardy / Chris Hemsworth / Bradley Cooper / Noel Edmonds (guilty pleasure #sorrynotsorry)

Nope! I am a photographer not a magician

What do I have to wear?

Whatever you are told advised to wear by your partner! Failing that, anything that’s ironed!
