Your photoshoot journey


From start to finish I make sure you are happy and informed about all aspects of your photoshoot journey. I love to learn about your family, and ensure we all feel happy and relaxed in each others company. You may like to phone chat, or communicate online. Either way I make sure I know who your family members are, what you are hoping to achieve and we agree a suitable time for your shoot.

Advice on what to wear

What you and your family wear to the shoot, can make all the difference between mediocre images to stunning ones. Honestly, its true! Preparing your families outfits though I know can be tricky for some, so I am here to help. I will give you clear guidance on how to put together your outfits so you can be confident your images will look amazing.

Location choice

I know of many gorgeous locations to suggest, dependant on the seasons, colours and vibes of the shoot. I love also to find new locations so am happy to accommodate your ideas too. You may, for example, have a place that has great significance for you, which we may be able can accommodate.

We will normally be based at 1 location for the photoshoot, but I always ensure we have a number of different backdrops and settings within that location to create a variety of stunning images.

I offer to travel within a 15 mile radius of Derby, but can travel a little further afield for a small additional fee.

During your shoot

As a guide, I leave 90 minutes for a family photoshoot to allow for play, changes of backdrops etc. This can change dependant of family numbers and individual requirements. I also allow 1 hour if you are an individual, eg Teen or Child photoshoot.

I will gently offer guidance and prompts throughout the photoshoot, to help you feel comfortable and relaxed ensuring you know the plan for the sessions and your key requests are included. I will accommodate and adapt to your families needs throughout and will sometimes bring a few props eg seating, to help positioning.

Gallery of images

Your images will be carefully selected, fully edited and made available for you to view within 10 days of your shoot. You are then free to access your online gallery at a timing of your choice and consider which images and products you would like to purchase.

I have created my COLLECTIONS where I’ve put together my 3 most popular packages which provide great value. My digital Collections are priced from £99 with Framed packages from £550.

I also offer a bespoke Printing and Framing Service so please talk to me about your individual requirements.
