Colourful and vibrant
Kid's portraits are the perfect place to incorporate colour and pattern.
I love to photograph children with exciting backdrops such as the ever-changing urban cityscape of graffiti that Bristol has to offer or fields full of pretty flowers with vibrant outfits to complement their surroundings.
Freedom and fun
Childhood is, on the whole, a hyperactive and worry-free time (when you're the child, not the parent!) so I like to incorporate a lively feeling of energy and freedom into my kid's photography.
What other time in your life can you get away with dressing as your favourite superhero in the middle of the day? (For argument's sake let's exclude student life and any stag or hen weekends you may have attended).
Personality and character
Each session is unique can be tailored to suit your individual taste and your child's personality.
You can bring fun outfits and plenty of clothing changes to the session to make the most of your time with me.
Hobbies and interests
Before your shoot, have a think about what your child loves doing.
If they have a favourite toy, favourite place, or love dressing up as a Red Arrows pilot (as the girl below did) just suggest it to me for your shoot and I'm sure we can incorporate it.
You don't have to dress smartly or be on your best behaviour the whole time...just relax, be yourself, and enjoy it.
The littler ones
Friends and family will be eager to have photos to share of your gorgeous newborn baby.
I offer home visits or studio sessions and recommend that your baby is the main focus of the shoot (as opposed to being photographed within a large family group).
This will allow a quiet environment and time for a slower paced session to ensure you get only the best photos for the littlest member of your family.
I aim to combine natural photography with creative concepts and some casually posed shots to ensure a generous variety of choice in your final set of images.
It goes without saying that you are welcome to request anything prior to the shoot or on the day. My way of shooting is quite informal and I am always open to suggestions and spontaneous ideas.
How I work:
I offer sessions on location, which could be a peaceful wooded area that you often visit for picnics, a river-side park, a favourite play area, a funky city centre wall or perhaps even your own garden?
If you wish I can photograph you in the luxury of your own home, and can also hire a studio upon individual request.
A kid's portrait session costs £85 which includes:
* Pre-shoot consultation (via phone / email)
* 1 hour photoshoot on location
* Password-protected online viewing gallery
* 7x5" print of your favourite image OR 1 web-resolution digital file for social media
"Photoshoot only" option is £45 (order your photos afterwards).
You will have the option of purchasing additional items such as prints and digital files after your photoshoot; but there is no obligation to do so.
I offer the online viewing gallery to avoid any awkward highly pressured sales techniques, as I want your experience with me to be relaxed and fun from beginning to end.
