To me, family photography is about capturing that time in your families life, starting at maternity and newborns, through to toddlers and school age. Attention is given to feeding, playing, doing a fun activity together, and capturing you all authentically; the idea is to capture some natural shots of you having family time with some natural, relaxed and importantly, fun portraits mixed in.

I capture these moments in personal, natural and relaxed surroundings; my mini shoots take place at a beautiful outdoor location and full shoots can take place at your home or outside (or both!).

Philippa was brilliant on the day, going with the flow, in a super calm manner that meant it didn’t matter whether our baby was awake, sleeping, crying or feeding. Her incredible eye means that she can direct you and capture the most priceless moments

Full Shoot Information & Process


After the shoot, the best photographs from the shoot (approximately 80-90) are loaded to a private proofing gallery, ready for you to make your selections for digital files and prints.


The day of the shoot arrives! The flexible shoot will last from 60-90 minutes, to allow time for 'children to be children'.

Once you have received your proofing gallery, you have up to 6 months to select your photography package and any extras like prints, albums and framed wall art.

*Digital files are not included with the session fee and are purchased seperately after you receive your selection gallery

NB: If you have booked directly through the website via the online calendar, a follow up email will be sent to you with booking forms to complete. Only then, along with a paid session fee, will your reserved shoot date become official. 

the cost of a full family session is a little too much of a squeeze right now (with childcare costs and eeeeverything else - I get it, trust me!)

Someone feels apprehensive about having a photoshoot' this is a great taster session to show them it's a LOT more fun than they're expecting

Family Mini Shoots



Philippa was the official photographer at my 70th party. We had a full briefing before the event. On the night, she was discreet, professional and happy to take both posed and those spontaneous shots, she judged would provide a sense of the atmosphere and fun of the evening. I was delighted with the result; which was extensive across the evening, and the guests. She was creative curator and captured the joy and celebration we experienced.
