A massive thanks to everyone for being so patient and supportive during the last few months. If you have an outstanding Gift Certificate, or have paid for a shoot, please do get in touch now to reserve your slot. Sessions are available on a first come first served basis.
The world keeps on turning, our families keep on growing and our businesses still need the best kind of promoting. All shoots are strictly sticking to guidelines, and rest assured that alternative dates will be offered if, for any reason, shoots can't go ahead.
Please do get in touch with inquires - I'm excited to get going again and can now offer:
Studio shoots - For family groups no larger than three people
Outdoor location shoots - Groups of six, or, a group from two households that can be more than six.  Family groups will still need to social distance.
From 17 May - All going well, I can book groups of no more than thirty (social distancing rules may still apply).
