The Folletts

Last week Jack came into my Cheltenham photo studio; his Mummy had been given the shoot as a gift for Christmas. 

He was a little nervous of all the bright lights but settled down as soon as Mum and Dad got in on a picture. We pulled out lots of toys from my prop cupboard to try and help him relax. After about ten minutes, I suggested we go outside. If often helps to relax little ones if they are feeling overwhelmed by the studio setting. It worked too, he was soon laughing and giggling away!

If you would like to book something similar then I'd love to hear from you. All my studio shoots are relaxed and informal. All high resolution digital files are also included, so no hidden extras. To book simply drop me a line using my contact page or give me a call on 07983 465414. Thanks!

Serana

Last Thursday I had the pleasure of photographing adorable Serana for a 7 month old sitting. She was a bundle of smiles and practically giggled herself silly throughout the relaxed and informal 30 minute photo shoot! 

If you would like to book something similar then I'd love to hear from you. All digital files are included in the cost of the photo shoot. Either send me a message using my contact page or give me a call on 07983 465414. Thanks!

Lacie

This morning I welcomed little Lacie into my Cheltenham photography studio for a vintage themed photo shoot! Her Mum, Charlotte, has a passion for all things retro and had some cutesy outfits for Lacie to wear. The majority of my props are vintage and retro anyway but I had fun rummaging through my children's room, (which is like a cavern of treasures!) to find a few extra gems!

Lacie had lots of fun and she christened a few of my new props that I'd only just picked up from a flee market at the weekend! The bright, colourful rocking horse and little red trike were both hits! She also loved sitting on the little wagon and playing with her shoes!

I hope you like the photos. If you would like to book a studio shoot then I'd love to hear from you. All sessions are carried out in a relaxed and informal way. There's no pressure on your little ones to perform in front of the camera, it's more about letting them lead and seeing what works. The results are often far better than trying to get them to carry out specific tasks. It's all about play and having fun!

George & Finlay

George and Finlay were a couple of great little characters. Despite being twins they didn't seem to have twin intuition, with neither of them interested in looking in the same direction at the same time i.e. at me!! We all found it hilarious. I kept reassuring Mum and Dad that they didn't necessarily need to be looking at me to get a great shot, as the pictures below demonstrate!

Millie

A beautiful little girl with bounds of energy whose character bounced off the walls! If you would like to book something similar for your little one then I'd love to hear from you! Give me a call on 07983 465414 or drop me a message using my contact page. All digital files are included in the price of your studio shoot, so no hidden extras.

Many thanks for those lovely photos. I’ve just put through our Christmas photo orders and have plenty of time for postal delivery so huge thanks too for doing then so speedily! With best wishes for a lovely family Christmas.

Harry, Josie & Hugo

Heidi, aka Mum (!) wanted lots of fun snaps of the kids. I can understand where she's coming from - although I'm a photographer it always feels like mission impossible trying to get photos of my two young children, Jenson and Wren, who are 2 and 4 years old! 

This shoot was great fun. With 3 children the mayhem was quick to start and it was non stop craziness right till the end! It was great to see some of my new props get a run out, in particular the hula hoops, which all kids seem fascinated by! Parents aren't so impressed when the children ask them to demonstrate! The dinosaur outfit is something I'm going to have to buy for the studio as this is the second little boy who's brought one along! 

If you would like to book a studio shoot with me, I'd love to hear from you. Feel free to give me a call on 07983 465414, or drop me an email using my contact page. Thanks!

Carly & Elliot

This was such a fun shoot. Carly's kids love balloons and so she brought along some giant ones to add to the chaos that usually unfolds at a Mouse About Town photo studio shoot!

The children also loved hiding in bags, the drum, which is always popular, and the hula hoops, which were new props I'd only just acquired! 

It definitely inspired me to introduce a balloon bashing photo session!
