What to expect

I adore a good child photography session, always full of laughter, music, dancing, spinning – anything that helps your child or children to relax and feel super comfortable with me so we can create portraits that really capture their personalities. I ensure that if your little one doesn't want to have their photos taken, or they need a bit of extra encouragement, there are no time constraints and we have the time to play, have a snack and a bit of a chill-out so they can feel relaxed and settle into the session. Allowing your child time to do their own thing, and feel at home, results in natural images that you can look back on with a smile at the enjoyable session you had capturing this special time in their lives.

For one year old's through to teens, I encourage parents to pack pieces from home that they love so we can include them in the session, both to help them feel more at home but mostly so you can remember what they loved at a certain age. It could be trains, dolls, colouring, books, a well-worn, cuddly toy they’ve had since they were a baby or a tea set for them to play with their sibling – anything goes and we make it all work!

Using a variety of coloured backdrops, age-appropriate props and a bit of magic I love creating images of your children that they really enjoy having taken and that you just can’t wait to get hung up on the walls!

Why have a child session

Do you remember your favourite thing to do when you were little? Have you got photos of your old cuddly toy that you would never let anyone else hold? Can you picture a photo of you with your brother, sister, Mum or Dad that makes you smile every time you look at it?

If the answer is yes then great! You are one of the lucky ones, so let's make your children lucky ones too and capture all of those incredible moments in a relaxed setting. If your answer is no, then you have a chance to capture all of that for your little ones so they can answer yes one day! Take the time out of your busy schedule to capture what your child looks like now, what their favourite toy is, how they rest their hands, their hair style - because all of it will change and you will wish you had more photos, more memories, more everything to remember them just as they are.

I specialise in child photography in Lincolnshire, starting with babies out of that newborn stage (we have a dedicated session for newborns), to showing off their sitting, smashing cakes on their first birthday, toddlers exploring their toys, older children developing their unique personalities and teens showing off (or needing some coaxing) – I love to capture all ages and emotions.

Mini Sessions

Throughout the year, I love to offer mini sessions that combine the natural portraits of your loved ones with themed sets to create a photographic calendar of the year. I love how seasonal the UK is so when the leaves start turning brown and falling from the trees it is the perfect time for an autumnal/Halloween themed session, followed soon after by the traditional Christmas photos that we can add to greetings cards and being born on Valentine’s Day, this is one of my favourite holidays so be prepared for the ultimate in cuteness for loved-up sessions!
