Fine art portrait Session
My fine art portrait sessions are held at my home studio. They are styled sessions and I work very closely with you to create beautiful standalone pieces of art.
Your experience with me begins with a telephone consultation where I gain an understanding of your child and what type of beautiful images you are looking for and for who. Whether you need thank you gifts for family, beautiful wall art for the home, or images for announcement items, what ever you may need I can help.
Securing your session
I ask for a refundable deposit to secure your session date. This deposit is deducted from your collection choice.
I ensure you have all the information and guidance you might require for the session so that you feel as relaxed as possible. I am also more then happy to discuss your ideas on outfits etc prior to the session.
The session itself is up to 1 hour in length and is a bespoke styled photography session at my home studio in Portishead.
Around 14 days after the session you will receive your link to a secure online proofing gallery where you are able to mark the images you would like to purchase. Once I receive your payment, images are released for download from your gallery and any products you have chosen are ordered.
Below is a gallery and a brief example of my package prices, please also feel free to request a full products listing for more details.

Frequently asked questions click on the questions for detail.
Where do the sessions take place?
Your portrait session will take place in my comfortable purpose designed home studio. Newborn studios are not like traditional photography studios - they are designed around the comfort of your child. I want you and your child to feel relaxed and comfortable.
Is there an option for family photos within the session?
There are no family shots offered in this session, however I do offer family sessions and would be happy to discuss your needs.
How many setups will we get during an average session?
Due to a young childs concentration span and limits I use one setup to ensure I can focus on entertaining your little one and not changing setups, this makes for much more relaxed and engaged images.
What can I expect at my session?
You can expect a memorable experience filled with relaxation and memories. You will feel comfortable knowing that your newborn is in the hands of a skilled professional that has worked with numerous newborns and that all images are captured with newborn safety techniques.
You will have a patient photographer who pays close attention to each and every tiny detail, and one who is extremely passionate about what she does. You will never feel rushed, and you may even make a friend, you’ll continue to stay in touch with long after your session!
What will I need for my childs portrait session?
So that I can capture your child perfectly I tend to ask for very nutral colours and do suppl some outfit choices to better ensure all the character of your little one shines through.
More detailed guidance to help you prepare for your session, including ideas on what to wear and what to bring, will be sent to you as soon as you reserve your photography session.
Are there props available or do I need my own?
At this time I have a select amount of props as my style is very natural, fresh and authentic. I do use minimal items if it helps with diverting a childs attention to help with taking the images.
When will my images be available for viewing?
My average turn around for proof images is 14 days from the session at which point you will recieve an email giving the link to your secure gallery.
When will I receive my order?
Once you have chosen the images you would like from your gallery and any products, an invoice is then sent to you. Once payment is received you can expect to receive the final images for download within 2 weeks. If products are ordered these may take longer for production, and delivery time may vary during busy seasons and holidays.
What amenities do you have at your home studion?
Looking for a little steer?
I have put a few FAQs together that will hopefully help you when looking for a Sitter/Milestone photographer. In addition to this information, more tailored details are sent via email once the initial payment and booking has been made.
