Every family home should be adorned with timeless imagery of you and your team....So let me invite you on a family adventure to one of my lovely locations, to spend some quality time together with your loved ones.
Much like nature our families are all imperfectly perfect and to capture that in all its glory the great outdoors is the best playground of all. Show off your love, connection and personality while breathing in the fresh air and taking in the stunning scenery. I find the prettiest (mostly secluded) spots to take you on an adventure you won’t forget with wall worthy images to transport you back to the hugs, kisses and tickles.
Fun and frolics will be had while I snap away capturing those candid moments as you play and interact.
The concept behind my approach to family shoots is driven by research by Richard Louv, author and journalist, who is passionate about connecting children and nature. He explained the positive impact on their lives by getting outside and adventuring..…let’s get out into the wild!
PERFECT depiction of loving connection
In every captured image and moment, EXCELLENCE is the core. You'll feel embraced, valued, and cared for throughout the experience.
An environment of TRUST to create a relationship that lasts for life with results you adore
STORYTELLING in an AUTHENTIC beautiful manner that is true you and your love story
However if you are keen to also escape the at home baby bubble then let me invite you to my at home lifestyle studio in Halse, just outside Brackley (Northamptonshire) where my home from home setting in a light, airy neutral space makes for a gorgeous setting to capture all the newborn goodness and you cuddling your new bundle (I make a cracking coffee and you are welcome to nap on the sofa...while older siblings can play with all the toys on offer!)
So drop me a message telling me all about how your pregnancy is or how your first few days/weeks with a newborn has been. Having done it myself with two little Mini Macs I know it all too well! I look forward to meeting your littles!
I am a strong believer that the first few weeks post baby should be enjoyed at a slow pace at home, surrounded by familiar things to make this transition easier. That is why I can come to you and photograph you in the place you know best.
Each month I have a different seasonal venue to photograph families, couples and individuals at. This includes the likes of snowdrops, bluebells, oil seed, barley, lavender the list goes on. Where I have availability I can also look to accommodate a shoot at a venue close to your heart.
My newborn shoots are held within your own home or my at home studio space. I feel it is super important that those first few weeks with your baby are calm and stress free, so don't wish to drag you out of your home!
My Maternity shoots are held at an outdoor location close to me in Brackley, Northants and then back to my at home studio space.
Please use the contact form on this website to make a booking. A non refundable deposit of £100 is required to secure your booking. The remaining fee is then required 1 week prior to your shoot day. Payment can be made via BACS and details to do this will be provided within your booking confirmation email.
HAHAHAHA I am sorry but I have to laugh at this....what child does behave perfectly all the time?! Certainly not mine! In fact trust me when I say that if i can get shots of my own two fire crackers I will be able to chase yours round and create images that are wall worthy! Through years of experience with kids I have plenty of tips, tricks and games up my sleeves to ensure an enjoyable experience with a gallery of banging images!
I will try to be as flexible as possible to rearrange shoots for genuine reasons. As a mum myself I know how often children fall ill, so in this instance we will always find an alternative date. Also if the weather is being particularly unkind, where possible we will look to rebook, however rain and umbrellas can make for fun photos!
All of the images are shared within an online gallery which can be viewed on your laptop or phone. You will receive access to the gallery via an email which contains your personal password to enter the gallery. Your gallery will be live for 2 weeks post shoot.
If you have selected a package to keep all images you will easily be able to download the entire gallery or specific images to your phone or computer.
However if you purchased a package with a specific number of images to keep, you will need to click the heart icon on each photo you wish to select (the number of photos depends on which package you have selected) You can then notify me that you have selected your images via the gallery itself or drop me an email. From here I send you an email which will contain all of your selected images to download and keep.
Having had two pregnancies of my own, I know all too well the feelings associated with an ever changing body and let's be honest we don't always feel our best. However I promise you won't regret having some momentos showing quite how incredible your body is and the special job it had of growing your gorgeous little one. With specific natural lighting, flattering candid posing and no awkward ugly backdrops in sight I promise you will be made to feel like the beautiful woman you truly are.
You never want to forget these special times from bump through to baby, so let me invite you to spend some time switching off from the outside world and focusing on bump in one of my beautiful Brackley countryside locations followed by more shots in my home lifestyle studio, capturing those final few weeks with a bump.

"We had a fantastic evening on our Mini Mac shoot with lovely Ellie. Our daughter warmed to Ellie really quickly and she had so many tricks and tips to capture wonderful pictures and moments between the three of us. All of our gallery photos are gorgeous. Thank you so much!"
"We had an amazing family photo shoot with Ellie. She made us all feel completely relaxed with our baby and it made the experience so lovely. We loved every picture so much that we purchased the whole lot. Highly recommend Ellie for all your photo needs."
"Well…..WOW. I’ve shed tears looking through all these beautiful images. We wanted this shoot to capture the magic of our boys at this amazing age, but these have really delivered so much more. What a worthwhile investment and such an amazing keepsake for us all to look back on. The whole experience was excellent – the day of the shoot felt like a day out for us and a little woodland adventure for the boys."
Ellie is so so so AMAZING! I wish I found her beautiful work sooner. We are so grateful we have found her to photograph my family. She is just so fun to work with and made us feel so comfortable and was great with our 16month old. Her studio is STUNNING. Let’s just say her photos will be framed all over our house. She made MAGIC
