Saturday 4th November I am running my Christmas mini shoot sessions for 2017.
The idea behind Christmas mini sessions is that most people want a few photos for Christmas, and not a full one hour session. Having a full day of mini sessions means I can keep the cost of the photoshoots down too!
This year I bought some stunning new backdrops which have made all the difference to the images I can create.
How to book –
You can book a session using my contact form.
These mini sessions are £99 for a 20 minute slot and with that you receive 5 high resolution images to print as and when you like. Each child alse receives a cookie and some milk as part of the photoshoot.
Here are some examples of the sort of images you can expect …….
Thank you for reading this blog post and following my work.
Back in September the lovely Siobhan came along to see me with her gorgeous family. Her little girl had not long turned one and had been given a photoshoot voucher for her Birthday. This was an hour photoshoot and included photos of the whole family, and some of their little girl on her own. We managed to get some lovely relaxed photo of them all during the session. I think you will agree they make a cute little family!
An hour’s photoshoot costs £65, images are then purchased separately at a viewing session roughly two weeks after the photoshoot. Please do contact me if you would like any more information or to book a photoshoot.

Back in August Josie brought her family along for a family photoshoot. They decided to go for an hour family photoshoot, including photos of them all together, and also ones just of baby. This is a lovely way to photograph a baby who is not yet sitting up but is a little over the age that we can ideally do a newborn photoshoot for. I like to go through all the family variations that the family want and then move on to some more stylised photos of baby on their own.
This type of photoshoot currently costs £65 for an hour and then images are bought separately at a viewing session a couple of weeks after.
Here are a few of the gorgeous images we got during the session.
Please do contact me if you would like more information or to book a photoshoot.

Maternity photography records an amazing time in yours and your babies’ lives, you carry your baby for 9 short months, so lets record this time for you to remember. This may be the start of your family, it may be a continuation of your family, it is most definitely a precious time and worthy of recording in stunning images for you to treasure.
A couple of weeks ago the gorgeous Laura came to see me in my home studio in Bognor Regis (West Sussex), Laura was amazingly due the day after her photoshoot!
Maternity photoshoots are best towards the end of your pregnancy (although I wouldn’t usually suggest quite so close to your due date as this one was as baby can sometimes make an appearance early!).
Neutral clothing usually works best, although I now have a selection of clothing that we can use as well (All images from this shoot used my clothing other than Laura’s own jeans and white t shirt).
Why not record your pregnancy with a gorgeous maternity photoshoot? These can be booked at any time during your pregnancy, and are best planned for around 3 or 4 weeks before your due date, allowing us to capture your bump at it’s best and not risk baby coming early and before we do the shoot.
Clothing can be provided for your photoshoot, and you are more than welcome to bring any clothing or props you would like included in your session as well. Partners and children are also welcome to come along to your photoshoot and are encouraged to be involved so we can record this time for the whole family.
Maternity photoshoots are £65 for an hour (either studio or natural outdoors), images are then purchased separately at your viewing session. Please contact us for more information about pricing or to book a photoshoot.
Gorgeous sitter session photoshoot ~ Bognor Regis family photographer
Once your perfect newborn baby is a little older, why not book a sitter session? These are ideal for babies who can sit unaided but are not on the move just yet. This stage in your baby’s life is really very fleeting, and allows us to get some magical images recording his progress.
If you would like more information or to book a photoshoot please use the contact form here.
Prices (as of 15/05/17) are £65 for the hour photoshoot. Products are then available to buy at your viewing session.
I’m on a bit of a mission at the moment, this mission is to get whole families having photos taken. Not necessarily by me, but in whatever form you would like. I think that having images for your children to look at daily, up on your walls of your home, is invaluable when it comes to the whole family feeling part of the whole, and knowing they will always have a place to call home!
Having a photoshoot?
I will always give you the option of whole family photos as part of your photoshoot. Not all families take up the offer, some parents prefer to have the time spent on just the kids, but I will always offer! (I will not be upset if you decide not to get in the photos, it is your photoshoot and your choice, however I will tell you that if you have a few full family shots taken, you don’t need to actually buy them, but you may as well have them done while you are here).
Debbies family photoshoot.
Debbie comes to me for her family photos about once a year. Here are a few of the images we got from this years’ shoot.

In January I was contacted by a local business lady who runs an amazing business called Mumma love organics , they make natural skincare products for your little one. You can read the story of how and why Mumma love organics came about here.
Here are a few of the images that I took for them to use on their website.

In July I was honoured to be able to photograph the wedding of Becky and Jamie. Their wedding was at the lovely Hilton Avisford Park Hotel near Arundel, West Sussex, set in amazing gardens and with a golf course on site. The day of the wedding was absolutely stunning, the sun shone the entire time.
I was lucky enough to be able to shoot both bridal preparations and groom preparations as well as both parties stayed at the hotel the night before.
Both Becky and Jamie looked amazing on the day, and made my job so easy. You can really see how much in love these guys are, and how much the day meant to both them and their family and friends too.
Here are a few of the images we got from the day.
I wish you both all the very best in your future together, may it bring you much luck, health and happiness.
It is an honour to be able to record the most special day in a couple’s life, I am always humbled and often moved by the emotion of the day.
If you would like me to cover your wedding day, please contact me using the contact form, all weddings are quoted on a case by case basis as I believe that your wedding photography should be as individual as you are as a couple. I never work from a set list of what I provide as I prefer to tailor to your exact needs.
Today my first question to you is ‘Do you print your images?’
By this I don’t necessarily mean huge great big prints, or canvases , or anything that is hugely expensive. But do you print your images at all?
As a Mum myself I am passionate about recording the journey of our family. I often (just like everyone else!) take photos on my phone or Ipod, these are never going to be as good as the ones I take when I’m testing out my studio lighting or looking round a venue in preparation for a wedding, but they show the nature of our family and how they grow.
When was the last time you printed any of your phone or tablet images? Do you print any images you get from a photographer in digital form?
Every year I print a year photobook of some of the images I’ve taken over the year. This includes quite a few phone and ipod images (they may be smaller in the book, but no less relevant!), along with any other images I’ve taken over the year.
This is a small section of my photobook collection –
Why do I do this?
Quite simply, because when my children are older I want them to be able to look back at some of the things they did when they were little. We are a generation who now keep everything online and in digital form. What happens if your image storage hard drive fails? Or if you lose all the images from your phone? Will your children ever check a 40 year old phone for images at a time when they might want to see what they were like when they were little? I am guessing that the phone may have been long since thrown away or no longer be able to be used, even if they could find it.
What should you put in your books or prints?
Whatever is special to you. For the year book I will do for this year, I might put in this photo of the cake the kids and husband made me for my Birthday –
Go ahead! Have some fun and see what photos you have that you can print up.
If you are worried about creating a book, don’t be! You can either print your photos as standard prints and pop them into a photo album (like your Mum/Dad/grandparents did), or some online printers even allow you to upload all your images and then they will create a book for you (it takes just a couple of minutes after you have uploaded them all).
I want you to enjoy your images, whether they are your selfies with the kids, sports days or a family photoshoot you have booked. Most of all I want the next generation to have some physical reminders of what life was like growing up!

Just before Christmas the very gorgeous Athena came to see me with her Mummy, Daddy and sisters. Her Mummy and Daddy got married a year and a half ago, I was lucky enough to cover their amazing wedding for them too. It has been lovely to follow this family and their progress (I first met Mum a few years ago as our children were at the same after school club).
Athena was very well behaved for us and we managed to get some truly gorgeous images of her and the whole family. These first couple of weeks of a new baby’s life go so fast, and they soon lost their newborn flexibility, which is why ideally newborn baby photoshoots should be done between 5 and 15 days old.
If you would like a newborn photoshoot, ideally book whilst you are pregnant to ensure I have enough space for you in my diary. Although please do contact me once baby is born, because I can sometimes fit people in, and I hate to think that Mums and Dads can’t get the images they want of their precious bundle.
If you would like any more information, or to book a newborn (or other) photoshoot, please contact me using the contact form here.
