How do I book my session?

A booking fee (£100) is taken to secure your chosen experience (unless you are one of my VIP’s. Then its free!). This includes your shoot, viewing appointment, and a few other goodies! Following your booking, we will send you a questionnaire to fill in, arrage a date and time, then, post you your complimentary welcome pack. This is full of helpful information on what to bring, what to wear and much more.


I shoot on Monday mornings, Wednesday and Friday mornings. Saturdays are very busy with weddings and family so if you can do a weekday, that would be preferable.




Where are sessions held?

Your home, my Pure studio in High Halden, your local footpath, the woods, one of my many private venues. The choice is yours! We will discuss the options with you. Look HERE for inspiration.

What is the film and how is this done at the same time?

Your film is created using the same hand held DSLR cameras as I use to photograph you at your session. I am trained in both! Have a look at my Vimeo account The film is available for The Documentary Experience, Branding and Weddings.

What do I bring/wear to my shoot?

Wear what you feel comfortable in. Don’t go too smart as you will find it hard to relax. I will have you sitting on the floor at times! No big logos, bold patterns or florescent colours as these will distract from you, and give you awful skin tones! Try and choose rich, bold, earthy tones (mustard yellow, rich reds, cobalt blues). Bring a few snacks and a drink for the children. A spare pare of clothes potentially! In your complimentary welcome pack that is sent out to you following booking you will receive a what to bring guide.

How do I view my final gallery and film?

Around 2-4 weeks following your experience you will be invited back to my studio for your in person viewing! You will see your film & imagery on the big screen. I can help you design wall arts and choose your favourite images!

A La Carte Menu & Collections available for all Experiences 


How far in advance should I book?

We book up to a year in advance and are often full three to four months ahead. So please do not wait!

What about the RAW files?

My RAW files are not available to purchase under any circumstances. These are copyright to me

Can I purchase the film or digital files separately?

Yes, following your shoot you will be invited back for your in person viewing. My film (please not the film is only created on The Documentary Experience), can be purchased alone for £399. Digital files can only be obtained at high resolution through my collections. Low resolution files come with all wall arts (the correlating images).

Can I purchase a wall art on its own?

Yes, you are welcome to purchase a wall art only if you wish. See our A La Carte Menu here

What happens to any un-purchased images/film?

Un-purchased images and film will be destroyed as per contract.

When and how do I pay?

We will email you your booking fee invoice with an online payment option. Or, BACS/cash can be arranged. No Cheques. Any products and collections purchased at your in person viewing following of your experience are payable in full at viewing. 

Questions are the root of all answers.
