Children’s and Family Photography Session

Children’s and Family Photography – It is scary how quickly life goes by and how quickly your children go through each stage of their life.

My approach to Children’s and Family Photography sessions is relaxed and fun, adapting to each clients personality. Getting to know my clients and understanding their requirements results in natural looking photographs, that you can relate too.

The Sessions are photographed outdoors, on location around Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud and other parts of Gloucestershire.  I am happy to travel to surrounding counties and a small travel fee would apply.

Searching for a photographer can be daunting.  So, please get in touch if you have any questions or concerns about booking a session – 07900 433058

I am fully insured and have public liability insurance.

What if my my child………..?

Many of my customers love the idea of a session, but are worried about how their child/children will behave, after all it wasn’t their idea.

Having two boys of my own with two very different personalities, I know that in some situations they are not going to play ball, and I need to think of a new strategy.

On my outdoor children/family photography sessions there is no pressure to perform.  Your child needs to feel relaxed and happy where they are and not restrict.  They can bring toys to the session to give them security, they can even be used in the shoot.

I take time to get to know the child/children, let them see the back of the camera so they feel involved and a little in control.  It becomes a fun experience for them.

Should they decide to have an 'I’m not happy’ moment we take a break, give them space, before we continue. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.


We had a great family photo session with Zoe, she was so good with our children that by the end of it she was our two year old's new best friend! The photos are perfect, she clearly put a lot of work into the editing and we've got some photos that will stay on our walls forever. Thanks Zoe.  The Larkin Family
