"Thanks to Helen, I now have some exquisite photographs to remember my daughter's precious time as a newborn. She conducted a wonderful, stress-free photoshoot, and yet somehow gained the co-operation of a 4 year old and a tiny baby in a professional and efficient manner. I wholeheartedly recommend Helen and I will certainly be booking her again in the future."

"We spent a wonderful and memorable time with Helen in one of our very favourite places.  She was a joy to be with – my daughter and my dog loved her – and she easily got the best out of us all!  The whole process felt very natural; there was lots of laughter and we truly enjoyed the whole experience.  The photos speak for themselves – they are just stunning.  Helen captured a precious time in our lives that we can now treasure forever.  Thank you so much!"

"I feel very fortunate to have found Helen. She helped us choose a location that was very special to us all.  We find taking photos of the children very difficult and often stressful. However Helen's very natural, relaxed way with children worked its magic and the children responded, played and had great fun!  The two hours flew by and we couldn't be happier with our collection of photos to treasure forever.    

What a great experience and one we will be repeating with Helen in the near future. 

Thank you so much for your time, patience and energy."

"Helen managed to capture my daughters personality in one shot; her expertise allowed me to relax and enjoy the experience and I now have a beautiful album of pictures which I love and treasure."

My Approach:

I simply love to capture the innocence of childhood.

My images are rooted in reality and show a simplicity, that lead to an authenticity, that time can’t dim. Beautiful photographs that go on to become defining images of your children at that point in their lives.

Some of my family photographs will have an emotional content and therefore show that special connection between siblings, parents and pets.

Finding shoot locations, that resonate with my clients, is very important so that my shoots are great experiences, and above all, are a meaningful one.

As a photographer, I shoot outdoors with natural light. The outdoor environment seduces your child into forgetting about my camera and so I am free to enter your child’s world.  This allows me to capture honest and memorable images that you will love.



It is important to clarify exactly what you are getting for your money. I am very aware that you are investing in both your time, and money, on a product that will become part of your family history. You are paying for my bespoke service, unique to you; telling your story and using my expertise. You are putting your trust and investment, in my time and talent.

My 2 hour childhood and family photo shoots are £145 and include four of your favourite images as mounted 10x8 prints. Gift Vouchers are also available.
