CHILDREN PHOTOGRAPHY

“There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again.” ~ Elizabeth Lawrence

I love watching children play; they are spontaneous, creative and sometimes cheeky! I can capture your children’s personalities either in the intimacy of your home with their toys, or on location outside, where they can burn off energy in a natural and relaxed atmosphere.
Please browse the image gallery, for ideas and inspiration, or bring your own suggestions to our initial free consultation.

I’d love to hear from you, just get in touch! 

BEFORE THE SESSION

Prior to the shoot we will discuss the various options and alternatives. I can take the pictures outdoors, in your garden, the park or in the comfort of your home. My aim is to create a relaxed atmosphere for you and your children to enjoy the shoot. Normally the session lasts between 1-2 hours when I will take a minimum of 50 images. My emphasis is on high quality images and an exceptional service. I want you to enjoy the images for a lifetime. I live in Rickmansworth, West Hertfordshire and the session fee covers a radius of 15 miles which includes parts of Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Berkshire, Middlesex and London. For sessions further away or abroad a surcharge applies.

 

AFTER THE SESSION

Within 10 days I edit and upload a selection of images of the photo session on a secure web gallery.
You can create a list of your favourite images online in your own time. After 2 weeks I will be in touch and we can arrange an online meeting, where I can answer your questions, view and select the images with you, and can advise you on the best presentation. I work with an excellent supplier of high quality frames and coffee table books to give you the best finish to your photographs. After you have made your selection, I will edit the images and remove any blemishes.

PAYMENT

Once we have agreed a date for the photo shoot, a deposit is payable to secure your booking. Please contact me as soon as possible if you have to cancel, so that we can re-arrange the session for a later date. Payment for the photos can be made by bank transfer, cheque or online by PayPal/credit card.
