Oliver & Jacob

I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since my last photo shoot at Hatherley Park and how bizarre that my last shoot here also involved children in Christmas hats!

Oliver and Jacob’s Mum, Juliet, won her photo shoot in a school raffle. I’m contacted quite frequently asking for donations, and being a Mum myself on my own children’s PTA, I know how welcomed these donations are. I like to do my bit to help where I can.

The boys were good fun. To warm everyone up a bit to the camera, I suggested a bit of messing around on the swings in silly hats. This had the desire effect. Soon enough they relaxed into the shoot and were happily posing and having a giggle with Mum and Dad. As with all my shoots, it was very informal, which is great as it means the children are more at ease and I can capture people’s true personalities.

Below is just a small selection of photos. As with all my 40 minute plus shoots, all pictures are included in the price. I think this particular family received over twenty images, all of which they were very pleased with.

If you would like to book something similar then please get in touch using my contact page or send an email to info@mouseabouttown.co.uk. All pictures are included in the price of the shoot. Alternatively, give me a call on 07983 465414.  I'd love to hear from you. Thanks.

Meghan won her 30 minute mini park shoot at a raffle at her local school. I like to support local schools and charities where I can so I'm always happy to give a free photo shoot as a raffle prize.

Meghan told me how excited she had been all week ahead of the shoot and couldn't wait to show all her friends the photos! Her Mum and Dad joined us and together we took a stroll around Hatherley Park, Meghan picking a few of her favourite places to stop and pose!

Lizzie, Lottie & Zara

This photo shoot is one I did back in October but I'm only able to share it with you all now as the photos were Christmas gifts for family.

The girls were incredible fun. They enjoyed throwing leaves over poor old Dad and also pushing each other in the giant swing. Climbing trees and zooming down the fireman's pole in the playground was also a favourite!

Jack & Charlie

It's been a while since I've been to Hatherley Park but last Sunday I was pleased to meet up with Claire, Josh, Jack and Charlie again. I last photographed this family when Jack was just one. Two years later he was looking more grown up than ever and had a little brother too. As with all my photo shoots, we had lots of fun. Mum and Dad were keen to keep the photos to within the playground so the children had a lovely play while being snapped rather inconspiculously by me!

If you would like to book something similar then I'd love to hear from you. Please get in touch using the form on my contact page or give me a call on 07983 465414. All images are included in the price of the photo shoot. Thanks!

Alex & Leo

Last Thursday evening I was in Hatherley Park, Cheltenham, to photograph Alex and his younger brother Leo. Their Mum, Helen, had booked one of my popular mini park shoots. We had lots of fun playing hide and seek in the tall grass, blowing bubbles and Mum and Dad gave the boys a few swings too! 

If you would like to book something similar then give me a call on 07983 465414 or drop me an email using my contact page. Thanks!

Oh wow, we love them, thank you so much. Can’t believe you managed to get such good ones of the boys when they were on the move all the time! Can’t wait to show them when they get up in the morning! Thanks again.

I've photographed Elsie a few times now, the last time being in October 2015 at Pittville Park. Click here to view the photos from that shoot.

This time around it was to celebrate Elsie's 2nd Birthday! Mum opted for an extended 45 minute park shoot session that cost £85 and included all digital files, (normal sessions are 30 minutes and cost £50.) We had heaps of fun playing peep-o from behind a bench, exploring the trees, blossom and daisies before wrapping things up with a quick change of clothes and moving into the playground, which Elsie loved!


Last Saturday I headed over to Hatherley Park for what was probably my wettest park shoot to date! I shoot in any weather and it seemed my subject - the ever so gorgeous Minnie - didn't seem the slightest bit fazed by the rain either! The photo shoot was primarily to get lots of lovely photos of Minnie with her Dad, (who like me is normally the one behind the lens!) Like all of my park shoots, it was great fun and Minnie had a blast!

Gorgeous photos, thank you so much!

Sunny & Jaya

On Saturday I whisked myself off to Hatherley Park to meet gorgeous Sunny and Jaya for some fun, family photos! 

It's been a while since I've done a photo shoot at Hatherley Park so it was great to get back there. Like most 4 and 2 year olds, (I've two of my own!) Sunny and Jaya had bags of energy to burn! Sunny had great fun showing me how good he was on the fire man's pole and Jaya loved the swings!

After 10 minutes or so in the playground I suggested we take a walk through the park. Sunny loved playing hide and seek with me. This is always a good game to play as I use the time counting to secretly see where they are  hiding and adjust the camera settings to correctly expose for the light levels. When I creep up on them and shout BOO! my camera is ready to go to get the perfect picture!

Stunning. Love upside down Sonny and Jaya on the swing. Really love them. Thank you so much.

My park photo shoots are really popular. They are very informal, relaxed and fun. For just £50 you get a 30 minute photo shoot in one of Cheltenham's many beautiful parks - you choose which one. Also included is the editing and post production, 10 high resolution jpeg images, (digitally released) and no copyright restrictions, so you are free to print and make copies as you wish. 

For more information or to book please send me an email to info@mouseabouttown.co.uk or call 07983 465414. 

Gill, thank you so much for our photo shoot at The Mousehole yesterday. The kids had great fun with all your brilliant props and the photos are absolutely fabulous, as always. You have such a wonderful way of putting everyone at ease. Wishing you every success!
