Answers to Your Questions About Capturing Your Memories

Photography FAQ's:

Booking a session with me easy! Simply visit our website and fill out the contact form, and I’ll get back to you to schedule your session.

My sessions can take place either in our studio or at an outdoor location of your choice. I also offer in-home sessions for added convenience.

Yes, I offer gift vouchers for all our photography services. It’s the perfect gift for expecting parents, families, or anyone looking to capture special moments.

The best time for a newborn session is within the first two weeks after birth when babies are sleepier and more flexible for posing.

I recommend bringing any special blankets, outfits, or props you’d like to include in the photos. I also have a selection of props available in our studio.

Newborn sessions typically last between 2-3 hours to allow plenty of time for feeding, soothing, and capturing those precious moments.

I recommend coordinating but not matching outfits, and choosing clothing that reflects your family’s style and personality.

Family sessions typically last around 1-2 hours, depending on the size of the family and the location of the shoot.

The best time for a maternity session is usually around 28-32 weeks, when your bump is nicely rounded but you’re still feeling comfortable.

Absolutely! I encourage partners and siblings to join the session to capture the excitement and anticipation of welcoming a new addition to the family.

I have a selection of beautiful outdoor locations to choose from, or I can also do the session in our studio for a more intimate setting.

My biggest tip is to find something you feel amazing in.
Pair together complementary colours, use muted tones.
Anything with movement looks amazing, so think dresses, flowing tops etc.
You will receive my Style Guide once your session has been scheduled.

It usually takes up to 3 weeks from your session however I always endeavour to have them to you as soon as possible. If for some reason this timeframe will be longer, I will advise you of the circumstances.

I keep a close eye on the radar the day before your session and also the day of your session. If it looks like the weather has set it, I will suggest we reschedule. I will keep contact along the way so you will never feel unsure of what is happening.

If you or your babies are sick I am more than happy to postpone the session to another day. Same goes for me. Just please give me 24 hours notice if you can. There is no fee to reschedule your session.

Currently my packages are priced for immediate family only. However, If you would like to have an extended family session, please shoot me through an enquiry and we can chat further.

I understand that some of my packages can be a big outlay at one time. With this in mind, I am happy to offer payment plans. Just get in touch and I will work something out.

    When I chose to elope I knew I still wanted wedding photo keepsakes, I searched Instagram for weeks and Mel’s page was exactly what I was looking for, so I booked! Our shoot was so relaxing she was so easy to work with. We just got our photos back and I’m genuinely shocked they’re better than I could ever imagine! So grateful for these photos forever 🤍

    Mel was able to capture some beautiful and precious moments of our family despite windy conditions and the unpredictable nature of young ones! I'm so glad I decided to get our family photos with Mel. She was fantastic.

    Mel is absolutely incredible! I am completely over the moon with the photos she took of me (pregnant at the time) and my partner and our little girl. Mel made us all feel at ease straight away. My daughter was under 2 at the time and is usually very shy, I was worried that she wouldn't participate. By the end of the shoot my daughter was smitten with Mel! We got the sweetest photos as a result. If you're on the fence of getting photos, get off it ASAP and contact Mel. I promise you, you will NOT regret it.

    Mel is the best. From our first email through to receiving the gallery, the process was fantastic. We dont normally feel comfortable in front of a lens. However, with Mel behind it, we relaxed and she gave us space to be ourselves. We bought the whole gallery because i couldn't pick a top 20 or 40, they were all so beautiful. Thanks again, Mel, for capturing our family so beautifully x

    I had newborn photos taken of my last little babe. Mel was so understanding when I had to change the date due to being admitted into hospital, she offered me three different dates and was so kind about the whole situation. She was also so calm and great with my older three children. I don’t know how she did it as we are a family of six and had a five, four, two and newborn to work with. The photos turned out beyond my expectations and I couldn’t have asked for better newborn photos.

    Mel is amazing! She has captured our first family shoot followed by our wedding, maternity and newborn. I wouldn’t trust anyone else to capture our special moments. ❤️

    Mel was a dream to work with! Communication was great the whole way through the process. Whilst we played around and had a great afternoon with the kids, Mel captured it perfectly. A snapshot of our family that we will treasure forever!
