What to expect


from a baby/sitter session

What to expect


from a baby/sitter session

Mini Sessions really are perfect for capturing that fabulous little personality of your child. Sessions are short to ensure that children don't get over tired/stimulated and are usually "painless". That being said, as is the nature of children, I/you cannot guarantee star quality performance from your child on the day. I will do my best and I love engaging with kids on a very silly level, however I will also need a lot of energy from you to get the shots that you are hoping for. 

Whilst I know that it can feel like the pressure is on to get the perfect images it really helps if you relax as much as possible. Children can sense when their parents are getting stressed and simply won't perform. I have a lot of experience with children; I have four of my own as well as working almost exclusively with small children in the studio, so I will pull out every trick in the book to engage with your little one and get the best out of them. If you are having a family session and are in the picture yourself, please try to remember at this time to look at me with a relaxed expression, rather than trying to engage your child. I'll pull the silly faces and act like a clown if necessary as no-one is going to be taking my picture! 

It can be helpful if you're not in the picture to help me to get the attention of young children, they tend to react better to the voice of their parent. Please come as close to me and specifically to the camera as possible so that I can get their eyes looking right at me. 

I will capture your child as he or she is. I don't ask children to smile for me, I want to give them a reason to. Some children are introverted and will need some quiet, gentle coaxing to help them relax, in which case the resulting images will reflect this quietness. It's so important to me to record the true personality of children and not their forced smiley face.

What to expect


from your newborn session

What to expect


from your newborn session

A newborn session is quite different to a family portrait session. A lot of time is spent feeding, rocking, shushing the baby until they are nice and sleep, with full little tummies and are ready to create those really sweet poses. 

When you arrive I will ask you to undress your baby, leaving the nappy on (at first). Ideally you will have already fed your little one just before you left the house so we should be able to get started straight away.

The studio is kept very very warm to keep baby settled. Please remember to come dressed for the tropical environment and also with a change of clothes for you, as sessions can get "messy".

On that note...! There is a very high chance that your baby will, at some point make a little (or a lot) of mess! Please trust me when I say this is completely normal and no problem for me at all. It's all part of the job!

*Whilst my goal is to meet and exceed all your portrait expectations for the session, my priority is your baby's comfort and well being. I never make a baby pose in position that is uncomfortable or unsafe, all my poses are natural and organic. From time to time baby will wake up during posing and may make a little noise, this is usually just because they are disturbed and would like to go back to sleep. I quickly settle them down and continue, however if baby is showing that they need a little more comfort than I can provide I'll pass them back to you for an extra feed.
