Photography of children and family

Nursery & School

The wonderful thing about working with children at their nursery/school is that they are in an environment where they feel comfortable and expressive. As a photographer, this allows me to be creative, unstructured and informal. I usually spend a lot of time with the children, talking, playing, reading or even joining in group activities so that, they can become used to me. Whatever the age group, children need to accept you before they will become natural in front of the camera.


I offer a choice of 2 options: a classic option to only take the individual formal portrait and the class photos or a more informal option where I will spend few days in the school/nursery taking formal and informal/natural portraits of the children as well as the class photos.


Parents can choose a mix and match of their preferred photos, choosing between colour and black & white, formal or informal (depending on option chosen). Photographs are available for viewing 1-2 weeks after the photo shoot. Finished photographs can be viewed and ordered via my website. The parents are given a unique, secured password.


I am CRB checked and I will be happy to provide you with a list of references.


If you are interested in finding out more, or would like to book a photographer for the year coming, please contact me to discuss availability.
