Documenting the most important people in your life
Child and Baby Photo Shoots are the perfect way to take a snapshot of your little ones and stop time. As a parent myself I look back at photographs of my children already and see just how fast they’re growing. The best bit about baby’s and children is how truly honest they are. They only give you a smile when something has truly made them happy and you’ve earned it and that’s what I love. Anyone can click a button, but it takes time to get a big and natural smile.
A pure white background in the Studio gives your Child and Baby Photo Shoot a blank canvas, removing all distractions and letting your little one be the star of the show. I thoroughly encourage you to bring along things your child likes from toys to favourite outfits, props and anything that makes them unique. A fun and natural experience is guaranteed with upbeat music and lots of energy to match your little one (for added chaos at birthdays consider a Cake Smash Photo Shoot), or a more relaxed and calm experience if that’s what they prefer, because after all, every one is different.
Outdoor Child & Baby Photo Shoots
Bringing nature into your pictures
If your child is a born tree climber, leaf kicker or puddle jumper extraordinaire then an Outdoor Child & Baby Photo Shoot is perfect for you. Without the bounds of a Studio they can truly be free and run, jump and have fun surrounded by nature which lets face it is the best backdrop there is.
Why let all the kids have the fun though, I also offer Family Photo Shoots which incorporate a mix of group shots so you can jump in for some pictures too. Alternatively if your baby is furry and has a waggy tail then have a look at my Pet Photo Shoots.
Local to my i’m very lucky to have the beautiful Kinver Edge, Arley Arboretum & Bodenham Arboretum which offer stunning views and lots to see and do for the kids to make for some spectacular natural photographs.
I’m happy to make memories wherever your adventure calls home, just drop me a message using the form below with where you have in mind for your photo shoot experience for a custom quote.

Your questions answered
A relaxed and casual approach to my child & baby photo shoots come with an emphasis on comfort and cosiness. I want you to enjoy your session and be talking about it, and the pictures for years to come. Music, props and bad dad jokes aplenty will keep you smiling naturally throughout, no cheesy smiles I promise. To see examples of my work please see the top of this page, my Facebook page or view my latest Blog posts.
If we have an Outdoor Photo Shoot scheduled and the weather isn’t playing ball (which, let’s face it is often the case in England) then I will happily re-schedule or change it to a Studio Shoot instead if you prefer.
Bold and bright is always a winner. For outdoor Photo Shoots it doesn’t matter what colours you wear but for Studio shoots I recommend keeping away from white as it can make you look a little washed out against the white backdrop. Finally keeping it clean without big brand logos across your clothing helps to retain a timeless quality to the images.
Family Photo Shoots are set for 1 hour which is divided roughly like this. The first 5-10 minutes is getting you and your family settled (especially important with young children) and explaining how the photo shoot works. This is followed by 20-40 minutes of photography which will include different poses and groups to maximise the time. The remaining time is then used to talk about what will happen going forward with editing, your Online Gallery and to book in your Viewing Experience.
I love a challenge and I love my job. I really enjoy working with children that are maybe a little shy or even don’t like having their picture taken as it makes it all the more rewarding when the smiles start flowing. It’s about identifying what makes your child tick and then identifying how to get the best out of them.
Absolutely, my Photography Studio is a large converted double garage which means it’s all on ground level and fully accessible.
Your Online Gallery goes live a few days before your Viewing Experience and gives you the chance to look at your images on a private website from the comfort of your own home.
The Viewing Experience takes place at my shop in Kinver and gives you the chance the relax and see your images on the big screen. After a slideshow of your photographs I will guide you through product samples I have including print, digital and canvas options available to you (with absolutely no pressured sales).
What my lovely customers are saying
Very impressed with the service we have received so far, so many wonderful photo’s to choose from.
My family and I went along last month for our photo shoot. Daniel was brilliant with the children, my two year old was less than impressed with having his picture taken but Daniel was very patient and had lots of props and distraction to keep him looking at the camera. I am very impressed with the photo’s that were taken and they far exceeded my expectations. As I wanted, some lovely memories to treasure.
