When you get in touch, we’ll arrange a consultation call, this is your chance to decide if I’m the right photographer for you.
We’ll talk about your hopes for the session and make a plan based on what you say. A 30% deposit books your two-hour session. Please email to see which package suits your budget. Most people spend £399.
You can choose whether we have the shoot at your home or somewhere else you love – and then we’ll look forward to the next step.
I always gather the children together for a storytelling session, before I even take their photos. During working hours I’m a dedicated educator, passionate about young children’s education and development.
It’s this love for and natural affinity with children that lets me capture young ones looking relaxed and playful, while also reflecting the warmth in relationships between family members. Quickly gaining children’s trust is my first goal. You can’t fool little ones; they have an instinctive understanding when an adult isn’t genuine.
… including a teddy bear that needs to be woken up with cries of ‘wake up sleepy bones’.
I focus on enjoyment during the actual shoot. Anyone who remembers those stuffy school photos with the rather questionable pastel backdrops may be surprised to learn that my portrait sessions are more about fun and less about the pictures. Children need the freedom to roam around.
Together we go for a ‘bear hunt’. I’ll point out the silvery dragon in the sky. And when I want those glorious gazes that work so well as framed gifts for grandma? Well then, we’ll try to spot the fairy hiding in my camera.
“This was a birthday present which Mandy helped organise and made sure everything was right on the day. We felt Mandy was very patient and great with the children. Very friendly and Nothing was a problem and there was no rush. She was great at capturing the perfect shot.”
“”Amanda was absolutely fantastic. We loved our photo session. She really took time and care to ensure she was taking different and creative shots that would enable us to have lifelong memories from our photos. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for professional, natural, and beautifully taken photographs.”
“Mandy is lovely to work with and so talented. She was extremely organised and had arranged the perfect parts of the park to use with the best natural lighting and setting. She has a real eye for what works well and I would say they are probably some of my favourite family images ever! Her style strongly shines through and we felt extremely relaxed and at ease in her company and we had a lot of fun!”
