Family and Child Photography_Olney_Milton Keynes

I offer full length photo sessions of around 2 hours in the Olney, Milton Keynes, Northampton area.  However I have also started to offer mini-session days where a shorter session is available at a bargain price.  These are 20 minute sessions that take place at Castle Ashby in Northamptonshire.  The Castle Ashby Gardens are beautiful – and its no problem if it rains as there is a wonderful Orangery and other undercover areas.  You can relax after the session with tea and cakes or lunch at the lovely teashop.

If you are thinking of booking a mini-session get in touch – the slots go fast as they are very popular.   Here are some examples from the last session in September.

The next two dates for mini sessions will be Sunday 21st October and Sunday 4th November.  Contact me for details



Portraits of 3 month old Babies Milton Keynes

As a newborn photographer in Olney, Milton Keynes, I photograph a lot of babies that are just a few days old.  However, it is not always possible for people to get pictures when the baby is tiny – perhaps the baby is colicky and unhappy, perhaps you are busy adjusting to your new life as parents and the weeks have just flown – perhaps you are sitting in your PJs in a state of sleep deprivation trying to keep up with the housework and you haven’t even thought about it …  whatever the reason getting pictures while your baby is still young but not brand new is a great thing to do – you can still get someone to capture your precious tiny bundle however old they are.  I get lots of requests to photograph babies around 3 months – this is a fabulous age – they are still tiny and squiggey and baby-like, OK not as tiny as they were at the start but still tiny.  They can still curl up and look gorgeous asleep but they also have one great advantage over newborns – their personality is starting to develop and they smile and giggle and react beautifully.   So if you are wishing you’d had a newborn shoot and are thinking you’ll wait for the baby to crawl or walk – DON’T WAIT – your baby is still tiny and will never be this small again – seize the day !!  Here are some pictures of babies this age to show you the sort of images you can expect.

Model Shoot Hitchen Lavender Fields Hertfordshire

Several weeks ago I took a cute couple of models to the Hitchen Lavender Fields to try out a few ideas and I’ve finally found time to edit the images – the girls were such fun and the Lavender was so beautiful that I took tons of pictures – here are just a small selection to give a feel of the shoot.  Hope you like them – thanks to my lovely models for helping me try out a stunning new location.  For obvious reasons most of these are in colour but you know I love my black and white so a couple are thrown in for good measure.  Hope you enjoy them.

We had a great time – this is my favourite pictures as I think it sums up the cheekiness of the girls.

And finally – on the way back to the cars – we passed a horse which fascinated the girls …. I almost missed this as I was putting stuff in the car but Mum spotted it was a great picture so whilst she took a picture on her  phone I took one too 🙂
