Thanks for stopping by to find out more information about my photography sessions! I recommend different sessions depending on the time of year, how many photos you would like and the age of your children if for a family session. For portrait sessions either for individuals or companies, please send me an email to find out more information and pricing.


Being pregnant is one of the most incredible times and one of the most amazing things the human body can do! Photographing your pregnant bump is very special, whether or not you have had a good pregnancy. When you look back at the photographs you'll think "how did my body do that?!" and they provide beautiful memories for the future. I usually have the session when you are 30-36 weeks pregnant. I recommend either a 1 hour or 2-3 hour session for a maternity shoot.


If you would like a few photographs in one or two outfits and you don't have any other children/family members that you would like in the session, I recommend the 1 hour session.


 If you would like some more variety/outfit changes or have other children/family members that you would like to be part of the shoot, I recommend the 2-3hr session.

The Maternity session will be held in the third trimester, between weeks 30 and 36 of your pregnancy. We want your bump to look as big as possible, but we don't want to risk having the session too close to your due date in case baby comes early. Your energy levels might also drop further on in your pregnancy, so we want to make sure that we have the photo session early enough for you to be able to enjoy it to the fullest!

My style is very natural and candid, although I will guide you throughout and have a few more posed photos. I don't have dresses or props for this type of session, however if you would like to bring your own, you are more than welcome to!



I recommend a minimum of 2-3 hour session for a newborn shoot. Find out more about newborn photography with me here!

I also work as a volunteer photographer for families with babies in NICU or stillborn babies. This is a service I provide free of charge. For more information about this, please read more here.


I recommend a 30 minute, 1 hour or 2-3 hour session for a family session.

30 MINUTE SESSION - not currently available

This is suitable for a studio style family portrait at my home studio, where we take a formal family portrait. We will have time for one or two individual portraits of the children as well.


If you would like a few photographs in one or two outfits and you have young children who might not be able last a full two-three hours, then this is the session for you!


 If you would like more photos to choose from, a variety of locations and outfit changes, a larger family (5 or more) or have older children, then I recommend the 2-3hr session.

My style of photography is natural and candid. The family photography sessions are held either outdoors or at your home, where your children can play and feel at ease. I photograph them doing what they do best, having fun! I will always do some posed family shots and as always, guide you through the photo session, however the majority of the session will be spent with me capturing you interacting with your children. I will take individual photos of your children, some of the parents and then the whole family together.


I have gift vouchers available for photography sessions between 30 minutes and 3 hours.

  • 30 minute vouchers can be used for a family, headshot/portrait or Christmas mini-shoot.

  • 1 hour or 2-3 hour vouchers can be used for an engagement, newborn, family or couple shoot. 

Email Helen on to buy a voucher or for any enquiries. You can also use the Contact form here.


You have two options to choose from when deciding to book a photography session with me. Find out which one is right for you.

Bespoke options

This is a good choice if you are not sure how many photos you would like to have. You pay for the time of the photo session in advance. After the session, I send you the edited watermarked versions of all the images and then you select the ones you would like to keep! This is the more expensive option as I edit all the photographs from the session for you to choose from.

Package options

I recommend the package for the 2-3 hour session as you keep all the final edited photos from the photo session (a minimum of 25 images). With the package for the 30 minute and 1 hour sessions, I will send you what I think are the best 2 and 15 images respectively. If you would like to select your own images from the shorter sessions then it is best to choose the bespoke option.
