They say that parenthood comprises a series of goodbyes :)
Goodbye to your baby when they turn in to a toddler, goodbye when they’re older and spending more and more time away from home. Goodbye when they finally fly the nest.
Get in touch and let’s organise some beautiful family portraits before it’s too late.
We’ll chat about your family and decide the best way to photograph you all – studio, at home or on location and put a date in the diary.
A relaxed, informal shoot which gets the best out of everyone. No hurry, no stress, just a unique time to enjoy being together as a family.
We’ll meet after the session and I’ll show you your beautiful photographs for you to make your choice. No pressure, no hard sell – promise.
I love to provide parents with beautiful, treasured images of their children. The session will be fun and easy – no stress or hassle.
Please get in touch (no obligation to book) and we will discuss a plan for your family photography together. We can shoot in our studio just outside of Reading in Berkshire or organise a relaxed at-home portrait session – often best for young children as they feel more secure in their own environment.
A shoot generally takes around an hour, give or take, the idea being is that we are in no rush. Our photography service is not a production line. The time is dedicated to you and your family exclusively.
For newborn sessions please plan whilst you are pregnant. Brand new babies are best photographed within 7 or 10 days of birth for maximum cuteness. We understand the unpredictability of feeding and sleeping at this time – we will stay flexible to your schedule and create the pictures that you will treasure for ever.
After the session we will meet to show you the photographs. They will have been edited, processed and lovingly polished on the computer and prepared for your own dedicated viewing session.
From individual hand made prints, through to stunning wall portraits you are sure to love your portrait photographs.
Prefer to do your own thing? You can now invest in individual high resolution files prepared and tweaked for perfect printing. You are free to make as many images as you like for you, the family and friends.
Credit/debit cards are accepted at your viewing session and we aim to have print orders ready withing two weeks, wall portraits in about four weeks. Everything is hand made to order – it takes a little longer but worth waiting for.
All of my work, the wall portraits and the photographic prints are backed by my guarantee – I want you to be delighted with your investment for now and for the decades to come.
Do you feel you had enough pictures of you with your parents?

At your viewing session, I’ll help you choose the perfect size, frame and finish for your precious family portrait.
We have a session fee (depending on the type of portrait) which contributes towards the planning and consultation (vital to the finished results), the photography session on the day, the preparation for your dedicated viewing session as well as the viewing appointment itself. This work takes up to eight hours to complete but it’s well worth it when you see the finished images.
At your viewing session you will have the chance to invest in beautiful wall portraits, hand made photographic prints and digital files. Pricing for products starts at £65. Most of my families order a beautiful wall portrait, typically investing something like £400-£500 for a handmade framed photograph that fits perfectly (in size and finish) in your home. There’s no minimum order or obligation to buy.
All of our work is hand made to order. The digital files for our beautiful wall portraits are retouched and tweaked to look perfect. A photographic print is then made with perfect density, colour balance and exposure – no automatic settings here. The print is then sent to our framer who mounts it on board, cuts the chosen mouldings, glass and mount board to size and assembles the complete wall portrait.
It’s not the cheapest way of doing things but I want to create something beautiful and long lasting that you will have for the decades to come. By that time, the beauty and value of your portrait will be apparent.
Please call on 07889 364269 and I can give you further information, detailed pricing information and some ideas for your portrait session. I understand that what I do isn’t for everyone so no hard sell, no pressure (I promise).
