For around 13 years of my life, I didn’t exist. When my eldest daughter was born, I was elated! Documenting each month as she grew; the times she fell asleep in her dinner, favourite bedtime toys, and cuddles with family members – using roll-after-roll of film. I remember all of it, but I wasn’t in the photos with her. With post-baby lack of self confidence, I made excuses – ‘the baby weight’, ‘I look tired’, ‘I’ll ruin the photo’, ‘I’ll take the photo and you can all be in it….’
Those door slamming, ‘I hate you’ teenage years came and she started forming her own identity. I didn’t realise that photos of her life with me would help; providing security along with more loving conversations of ‘do you remember when?’
She needed to look at photos of us together. Now, I long to have those photos of us together, but there’s not even a handful.
Do you feel the same?
Let’s take your photos from

Very few to Look-at-you!
At the end of our planning chat, you’ll decide where you want to shoot, what style photos you’re after, and what you’ll all wear – along with any other preparations.
I love it when a plan comes together (and you will too). Yes, I’ve totally stolen that line.
Your private online gallery link will arrive within 7 days, while it’s still fresh in your minds. Make your selections, then your edited images will be with you within 5 working days*.
This feeling has been compared to Christmas morning.
*VIP Upgrade takes a little longer due to the personalised box.
hopefully that means we’ll get to meet, so you’ll wanna know what I look like.
I’m Marie – on the far right, struggling to hold my youngest. If you listen closely, you’ll hear me saying ‘hurry up and take the photo!’ through that teethy-smile. My eldest is on the left. Looking at her it’s like a younger, taller, me.
We’re on the beach, sweltering like true Brits who go crazy for those 2 days of real ‘summer’. The sea spray from passing hovercraft is so refreshing, and we’re content with the taste of barbecue in our mouths (teeth checked for black bits). Tunes of happiness and laughter fill the warm air. For me, it’s a perfect day.
What’s a perfect day for you with your children? How about we make it into a photo session?
