About my portrait photography

I specialise in spontaneous and fun family portraits. I love capturing unique personalities and emotions for my customers, whilst making sure you feel comfortable and at ease at all times.

My portraits are captured outdoors in the lakeside gardens at my Chesham manor house premises, or at a destination of your choice within 35 miles of Chesham.

A typical portrait shoot with me will just feel like a great fun family excursion, with lots of laughter and giggles as we wonder through your chosen landscape. I would hope that any nerves or shyness quickly disappear as I informally interact with your family before and during the session.

My aim is to capture everyone’s personalities, without forcing anyone to be anything other than themselves throughout the photo-shoot.

Many of my portraits are taken at local beauty spots in the Chilterns, with rolling hills and beautiful rural backdrops.

How it works

Eighty+ images are taken per hour of unlimited poses, and the session can include any number of people – the maximum so far is 50!  The sessions usually take place either at my manor house premises or each week I attend a local beauty spot for the day to offer an alternative option. Alternatively you can request a home visit or select a favourite location; an additional charge of £35 applies.

Within 10 days of your session, the online gallery will be live. Payment is due at this point, but there is a money-back guarantee if your are not happy with the results once you’ve viewed the gallery.

You select your favourites through the online portrait proof gallery. I optimise them and supply the high resolution images to you via WeTransfer or Dropbox. Typically 15 images from a portrait session includes about two hours worth of computer processing to ensure perfect results and amazing colours.

I will provide the details of a professional laboratory who offer trade prices, high quality and next day delivery.  The printing lab also offer canvas wraps and a framing service; all orders are placed online via their easy to use website.
