PORTRAITS

My family portrait sessions have been created to capture precious moments you’ll want to hold on to forever. 

From baby bump to the newborn nestled safely in your arms and throughout the joyful years that follow, photographs that capture these memories will only increase in value, giving you something to look back on when your children are grown. 

My style is clean, simple and honest. I work in a relaxed, gentle manner and I always allow your child to lead the session. I want to document their true personalities in a natural way, so I’ll never suggest anything posed or contrived. 

I am only able to accept a limited number of portrait sessions throughout the year and I’m often fully booked up to three months in advance, so please enquire early to avoid disappointment. 

‘Although we have lots of photos of our children, the majority of them are quick snaps taken on our phones, so it’s lovely to have some of the four of us as a family and to have such high quality photos to display in our home. I would encourage anyone to use Katy, she was brilliant to work with. From her quick response after my initial enquiry to receiving a preview of our photos shortly after the shoot, she made the whole experience a relaxed and enjoyable one, which isn’t an easy task when photographing two children under the age of three!’

Investment

BUMP SHOOT | £275

For expectant mothers at around 33 weeks of pregnancy

As you prepare to enter a wonderful new phase of life, a portrait session is the perfect way to celebrate the beauty, anticipation and excitement of pregnancy. Photographing you and your baby bump amid soft, flattering natural light, I’ll capture timeless shots that will always be a joy to look back on. 

You’re welcome to include your partner in the session, along with any other children you may have. Depending on your preference, the session can take place in the comfort of your own home or at one of my favourite outdoor locations. For the latter, I always recommend shooting at sunset to ensure the most flattering lighting conditions

As a mother myself, I know how important it is to make sure you feel completely at ease and deeply relaxed throughout the session. Guiding you gently through the shoot, I’ll document your sweet smiles of anticipation, the tenderness between you and your partner and all the precious details of your baby bump.  

Please allow one hour for your photoshoot.

Please note, if you would like to include your other children in the shoot it will be classed
as a family portrait session and would therefore cost £450.

NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY | £450

From six days to three weeks old

The first few weeks with your newborn baby are precious and fleeting. The days pass so quickly, there’s hardly enough time to take in all their tiny features. Using natural light, I’ll capture your baby’s newness, documenting everything from their tiny fingers and toes to their delicate, long eyelashes. 

Newborn sessions are completely baby-led and I always allow extra time for feeding and changing, so please don’t worry about holding things up. The session will take place at your home, usually in your main bedroom. If there’s enough space, we’ll take a few shots in your baby’s nursery too.  

The ideal time for a newborn photography session is within the first two weeks after your little one’s arrival. Babies older than two weeks sleep a lot less and are much more aware of their surroundings, making it harder to achieve those sweet, sleepy newborn shots. To avoid disappointment, please contact me well in advance of your due date. 

Please allow two hours for your photoshoot.

‘Katy’s photography is simply beautiful… As a mum herself, she intrinsically knows how to get the best shots of babies and children, how to put everyone at ease and capture those all important smiles and giggles. She won’t bat an eyelid if the baby suddenly needs a nappy change while the toddler throws a tantrum! Katy is more of a magician than a photographer. She made our manic, noisy, boisterous, messy family look like the serene, sunny, smiley image of perfection we would all wish to be!’

BABY PHOTOGRAPHY | £450

From six months old

At six months old, your baby’s personality is starting to develop. They might be sitting up unaided and finally beginning to explore their surroundings for the very first time. The world is an exciting place for them and their days are filled with the joy of discovery and learning.   

To capture your baby’s sweet smiles and excitement for all things new, I’ll visit you at home, photographing them in a simple, natural style. With older babies, I prefer to blend into the background, so they can be themselves and interact with you as they normally would. 

For babies who can sit up unaided and have older siblings, I highly recommend an outdoor shoot at my favourite location in rural Northumberland. For obvious reasons, these sessions are best suited to spring, summer and early autumn.

Please allow one hour for your photoshoot.

CHILDREN & FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY | £450

For children aged between one and ten years old.

Childhood races by at an alarming rate, so it’s essential to capture the happiness, energy and innocence that defines these years in photographs you’ll love now and forever.  

These sessions work best outdoors where your children are free to run around and explore. My preferred location in rural Northumberland provides plenty of space, long grass and a beautiful backdrop of trees and greenery. Roaming free among nature, you and your children will be able to relax and have fun while I create a series of stunning, natural images. 

Please allow one hour for your photoshoot.

‘I instantly loved the style of Katy’s photos. They were so natural and captured such precious moments. On the day of our shoot, Katy was incredibly friendly and approachable. She immediately put us at ease and we all felt comfortable having our pictures taken. We love our photos! The images of our son and daughter are beautiful and we will cherish them forever.’
– Sarah, Chris, Isobella and Oscar
