Portraits

We all use our smart phones to record moments which act as a visual diary.  However, they usually remain on our phones and end up on iCloud, are easily forgotten or worse still, lost or accidentally deleted.  Few photographs taken these days are ever printed. The quality of professional photographs beautifully framed, will provide joy for you and your families for years to come.

I’ve been photographing children and families for twenty years and as mother to four of my own children, two daughters and two sons, the youngest now eighteen, I have a wealth of experience to draw from!

Your photography session can take place at Monkton Barn, my spacious daylight studio just outside Marlow, Buckinghamshire. The barn is set in gardens and meadows with the rolling Chiltern Hills providing a perfect backdrop.  

The session will often start off in the studio and to add variety, we can move outside if the weather allows.  Children love going down the lane to the Bluebells woods in the spring; out into the daisy covered meadows in the summer and playing in the falling leaves in autumn – there’s something special with every season.  Many families choose to include their dogs and I actively encourage this!  I’m  also happy to travel to your home for the session and often do.

Babies seem to change in the blink of an eye; one moment they’re a sleepy newborn, the next they’re giggling and crawling. A baby portrait shoot will provide a lasting record from this incredibly special and short time. Sessions work in the same way as my usual portrait sessions but with newborns I works exclusively to keep your baby warm and snug. My baby photography isn’t highly styled and prefer a natural approach. Baby portraits can be held in my studio or in your own home, whichever you prefer.

Whether you’re marking a special occasion, or just want to record a moment in time of your family life, I would love to hear from you.
