FAQ's

My Philosophy

I'm inspired by everyday, seemingly ordinary details. I'll never tell you to smile or perform a trick, I take honest photographs that are natural and moving. Whilst I do include some styled and posed shots, I specialise in lifestyle portraiture which means capturing plenty of the in-between bits; real, pure and raw - the moments you might otherwise forget.

What is a session like

For most of your session I'll be observing, unobtrusively capturing real moments of your life. Life is messy, chaotic, vibrant and unpredictable. It's a genuine privilege to hang out with you guys and document you just as you are, no bells and whistles needed!

Where is a session?

I love to shoot in client's homes as a fly on the wall and in the great outdoors where you can run free.  I know some great spots for location sessions where we'll get a rugged and wild backdrop and you'll have plenty of space to explore and have fun. If you choose a home session, whatever the style of your house, it really doesn't matter as long as you have some pretty, natural light. I'm not there to shoot your interior but to capture you guys doing what you do within it. I like the quirks of your house, the imperfections and the stories it has to tell. Wouldn't life be boring if we all lived in a perfectly pristine palace?

Do you travel for sessions?

I'm based in Isleworth and shoot all over South West and West London covering areas such as Richmond upon Thames, St Margarets, Kew, Kingston upon Thames, Teddington, Chiswick, Twickenham, Strawberry Hill, Wimbledon, Hampton Hill, Putney, Fulham, Parsons Green, Kensington and Chelsea. I also travel further afield to other pockets of London like Islington, and out into Surrey. If you're interested in commissioning me for work outside of my immediate area, please do get in touch and we can discuss further.

How do we book with you?

Simply fill in the form on my Say Hello page, drop me an email or give me a call. We'll work out suitable dates, discuss the type of session you are looking for and finalise the booking by signing a contract and taking a deposit.

How much time do you typically need for a session?

For newborn shoots I allow around 2 hours to build in time for changes and feeds. My home and location sessions are up to 1.5 hours give or take.

How many photos will we receive?

Whilst you'll notice I'll take a number of pictures during your session, I only pick the best of the best to ensureevery photo you receive, you love. On average I'll deliver around 40-70 images for my Superior Packages, ensuring the full set gives you plenty of variety to help build your story. My Standard Packages include 10 high resolution images which you can select from your private, online viewing gallery.

Do you do sell prints or printed albums?

Yes, I offer beautiful fine art prints in a range of sizes and finishes. The colours and tones of these professional prints are unrivalled by any kind of printing you can access on the high street because of the Giclée fine art printing process used. They will last for years without discolouration and make impactful wall art because of the rich finish. 

As well as prints, I work with a 100% handmade, handcrafted album producer to create mind blowing picture albums for those of you who prefer to have a book to present your images in. You can see these products on my Products and Pricing page.

Who owns the rights to the images you take?

In keeping with the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988, I own the rights to all the images captured at your shoot. This means I can use the images we capture on the day of your shoot to promote the quality and variety of my work on my portfolio and in social media channels in order to help future clients get a taste of my capabilities. If you'd like to buy the copyright to any of the images from your shoot, or if you'd prefer I didn't publish the images I capture, please let me know in advance of your shoot and we can make arrangements.
