We really love doing our lifestyle shoots because it means the children that aren’t going to be happy sat in a studio can just run around and exert all their energy! It’s a completely different style and feel to our studio sessions and we are looking forward to the Autumn months because everyone gets wrapped up cosy warm – and all children look cute in hats!

Here are some photos from a recent lifestyle session we did at a location close to our studio, we really loved their little white dresses they look like beautiful woodland fairies!

If you are interested in our location sessions rather than studio, then have a read of our Autumn Mini Shoots, alternatively if it is a flu session you would rather then you can Click Here to read more about them!

The air is crisp and the wind is getting cold so it seems a great time to tell you that our next day of Family Mini Shoots will be to celebrate Autumn! We will be holding this on Saturday 10th October and are getting very excited to wrap ourselves up in hats and gloves and see all the colours changing!

What is a Family Mini Shoot?

A mini shoot is perfect if you want to update your family photos.  Each shoot is 30 minutes long and suitable for families with up to 2 children.  If you have a larger family these sessions are not suitable as we will need more time to capture your family perfectly.  You can book a portrait shoot with us instead.  Please see our website for more details on our family portrait shoots.

What is the cost of a Mini Shoot?

Our mini shoots are fantastic value for money.   For £295 you will have a 30 minute session, 4 beautiful 10″ x 8″ prints and the same 4 digital images.  (The normal price for this is £600)

When are the Mini Shoots?

Our next date is on Saturday 10th October 2015.  The times available are  9.40am, 10.20am, 11.00am, 11.40am, 2.30pm & 3.10pm

Where are the Mini Shoots?

We are very lucky to have lots of beautiful locations within a 10 minute drive of our Cobham Studio.  These include Painshill Park, Claremont Gardens, Oxshott woods and lots more.  We will choose the location nearer the time when we can see which is the most suitable for the mini shoots.  We will then contact you and let you know where to meet us and what to bring.

As we know everyone’s businesses are different, we would like to give you the opportunity of either having your headshots taken in the studio or outdoors! We are based on a beautiful farm surrounded by fields, so if you would rather this then just state your preference when you book.



Session Information

Before you come in for your shoot we will chat to you about what your business involves and what you would like the outcome of your head shots to be – if we have an idea of your branding style then we will get much better results together. 

Each shoot is 25 minutes long and we then edit and retouch your images to make sure that you look your absolute best.

I’m not sure where the time has gone as Cecily is now 6 weeks but I want to share our newborn session with you before she gets any bigger!



We are all doing really well, a little tired! (I know how our clients feel now) Harriet is loving being a big sister and uses her new title at any opportunity!





Liana and Andie came to the house when Cecily was just 10 days old as I wanted to try a lifestyle newborn session instead of our studio newborn sessions, plus after my c section I felt much more comfortable at home. As beautiful as our studio pictures are, I loved the fact it was taken in our own family surroundings, the place that has become Cecily’s first home.

When thinking about booking your own newborn session it is worth thinking about whether you prefer the more arty gorgeous posed shots we can do in our Studio Newborn Sessions or a new option we are adding which is the more relaxed style of our at home Lifestyle Newborn Sessions.

Here is my inside info on the main differences:

Studio Newborn Sessions 

Recommended under two weeks old as posing is key to gets those sleepy, curled up newborn shots that you love. They can also sleep through anything in those first two weeks (Very short lived believe me!)

Set in our lovely studio in Cobham were we have a professional set up stocked with newborn props, hats and back drops. We also use professional lighting to make you look your best.

The studio is set at a temperature controlled warm environment so the newborns do not get cold when we pose them naked. It can get pretty hot for adults though especially new Mums so remember to bring layers you can take off.

You can sit back and relax in our space as we have everything we need. Lots of cups of tea provided too!

Lifestyle Newborn Sessions

Not so essential that it is done in the first two weeks as it is more about the new baby and his or her new home and family.

Also helpful if you find travelling with a newborn daunting. Lifestyle newborn sessions are conducted in the comfort of your own home adding a personal touch to your images that might be missing from your studio session.

The session is less posed as it is more about capturing those precious newborn moments.


Whatever you decide we are happy to accommodate.

We are having some lovely Watch Me Grow sessions at the moment, it is so nice to see the how quickly they change from newborn to sitting up! Here are a couple of our recent Watch Me Grow 2 sessions whom we cannot wait to have back in next year when they are running about!

Our Watch Me Grow’s are the perfect way of capturing your child from newborn to toddler and you won’t believe how small they were once you have got to the third! The first two sessions are in the studio and the third session we do outdoors so we can capture their little personalities while they wander about! If you would like to find out more you can find the information here, or you can get in touch and we can go through everything with you!
