My sessions are informal and fun.
Children are not expected to sit still and smile on command.
I give minimal direction and capture the whole family playing and interacting.
Cheesy grins isn't what we aim for. I capture genuine smiles and lots of
giggles to treasure for years to come!
I am happy to work around routines and always allow extra time for
bribes and cuddles. (And coffee for the grown ups!)
I photograph children in their natural environment (not in a studio in front of a white background) and use
only natural light whenever possible.
Sessions take place in your home or on location depending on your preference and the age of your children.
I will take plenty of lovely shots during the time I spend with your family,
whether outside or indoors.
Sessions usually start nice and early, around 9-10 am when little ones are full of beans.
I recommend that outdoor photographs are taken late afternoon for the most stunning, warm light.
Please see my blog for more images and full galleries of a Kate and Camera photo session.
What to wear
Neutral or block colours look best in photos but the most important thing is that you and your little ones feel comfortable. Try to avoid dark clothes and shoes and large, busy patterns and logos. Avoid clashing outfits and you really can't go wrong. You can find ideas for complementing colours and outfits online.
Before your session
We will have a chat over the phone so I can find out more about your family and discuss what you'd like to get out of your session. I will give you ideas and tips to make the most of your experience.
After your session
A private gallery of your edited images will be available around 2 weeks after your session.
You will be able to download your full resolution files from here, share them with family and friends,
and order beautiful fine art prints starting at £4.
(Please make sure to download your images within 4 weeks, as I am unable to store them indefinitely.)
