What is the difference between a standard family portrait session and a stylised Children's portrait session?
A family session is for the whole family and does not include make-up and styling. We guide you on what to wear and how to prepare. During the session we will photograph you together as well as poses of the children together and a couple of portraits of each child on their own. Family sessions are for families with babies older than 4 weeks old (although we recommend 12 weeks). For babies under 4 weeks old you will need to book a newborn session.
Stylised Children's Portraits are much more involved when it comes to styling and artistically creating a timeless portrait of your child. These sessions are for children aged six years and older. Hair and makeup is included with this session and we have a wardrobe of beautiful garments to choose from. These sessions are priced and designed for one child at a time but sessions can be booked back to back for siblings so we can include a few poses of them together. Mum is welcome to join in for one or two poses too.
Do you work on weekends?
We do open on Saturday's from time to time for our stylised children's portrait sessions. These are by appointment only and need to be arranged with us. Contact us to arrange a date but these do need to be booked well in advance. Alternatively sessions can be booked Monday to Friday in the afternoon for after school pickup.
How much does it cost?
There is a session fee of £150 for Family Portrait Sessions and Stylised Children's Sessions are priced at £200. Stylised Children's Portrait sessions include a professional hair stylist. Prints and other products are extra, please refer to the investment page for more details or contact us and request a pricing guide.
How many family members can be included in a family session?
Our studio is nice and cosy, unfortunately we have to limit family sessions to 6 people.
When will I see the images that are taken?
We will schedule an ordering session roughly 1 week after your session. This is when you will choose and order your photographs. You will be taking your photographs and digital copies (on a usb) home with you on the day of your ordering session.
Can I buy just the digital Files?
All of our collections include both the printed photographs and digital files of images you choose in your collection. The digital files cannot be bought separately. We believe that the professional photographs that we are going to create for you deserve to be displayed on only the best quality professional products. Printed photographs are the only sure way to archive our beautiful memories.
How many pictures do you take?
On the day of your session we will photograph your child or family in different outfits and poses. You will then see 20 beautifully edited and printed photographs at your ordering session.
Where is your studio based?
Our studio is based in Finchley, North London, N3 3QE. It is conveniently located for public transport with Finchley Central tube station located just a 10 minutes walk away. There is parking available for those who are driving.

Is there a minimum spend requirement when it comes to ordering my photos?
