At our beautiful Pontypool studio, we specialise in ‘Bump to Babies’, with sessions from 35 weeks pregnant, to your little ones first birthday celebration.
We also have a variety of location and home based experiences for children and families with babies over the age of one. We know that as soon as your toddler gets toddling, the adventure begins, and lifestyle images in natural environments, are the absolute best way to capture them.

Family Studio Experience
During the winter months we are delighted to offer 'studio family sessions'.
We understand that the weather isn't always on our side and maybe you have little ones that are too small to don the wellies and jump in puddles.
We also know that from October to December we see an increase in full family sessions in time for Christmas so we are delighted to open the studio up to larger family groups for this period.
These family sessions will be £65 for up to an hour and include a complimentary 10x8 mounted print for families of 6 or less. If you have a larger group we can of course still accommodate you, but there will be an additional £5 per person to pay.
Bump & Me Experience
It feels like a lifetime while you're waiting for your precious miracle to arrive, but 40 weeks goes by in a flash and before you know it, you are completely smitten, and you forget all about the magic of carrying your baby inside you.
We know it's not always glamorous being pregnant, but we want to change that.
Come and celebrate ‘you’ with a Bump & Me Experience Session at our Pontypool studio, where we can treat you like a queen.
Relax, take some time out for yourself, and we can capture a range of beautiful, natural and elegant images, using a collection of outfits, backgrounds and lighting effects in our studio or on location.
Treat yourself during this wonderful time as you deserve it.
Partners and siblings are more than welcome.
Investment from: £54, 10x8 mounted print included.
(£30 fee payable at booking - £24 on the day)
It’s hard to believe that there was ever a life before becoming a parent. Suddenly you can’t ever imagine being without your beautiful new baby.
We want to help you hold onto those amazing first few days, by inviting you to the studio for our best selling Newborn Experience Session, within the first 2-10 days.
Babies of this age are preferred so that we can get you a collection of sleepy, squishy, cosy images using a variety of wraps, blankets and props.
We will do all of the work for you, all you have to do is sit and relax, or even have a little nap if you like.
Your baby is in safe hands with us.
Investment from: £70, 10x8 mounted print included.
(£30 booking fee payable at booking - £40 on the day)
Sitter Sessions are my absolute FAVOURITE type of shoot, and a time that is very much over looked.
We encourage our customers to make the most of this age, as the difference between Newborn and One year old is vast and fleeting.
It's the perfect opportunity to capture their personality as it is really starting to show. They are usually happy to laugh at the silly noises we make, and they are great at lying on their backs and eating their toes!
This experience is all about them before they out grow their 'Babygrows'.
We use simple props, neutral tones and outfits. If you visited us for a Newborn Session we will endeavour to use one or two of the same blankets and wraps so that you can really see the growth from your teeny baby.
Investment: £54, 10x8 mounted print included.
(£30 booking fee payable at booking, £24 on the day).
First Birthday Experience
One year old!
It’s an emotional time for parents, and a messy one for the babies.
This is the time that we get to have some fun. Using neutral tones and complimentary colours we will set up the studio complete with cake and simple understated decorations, and we will be ready for a mini party.
One year olds tend to either love it or hate it, but whichever way it goes, we will be there to capture it all.
Don’t fancy a cake? No problem at all. Just let us know and we are happy to discuss alternative celebration options.
Investment from: £65, 10x8 mounted print included.
(£30 booking fee payable at booking, £35 on the day)
Our Location Experience sessions are perfect for all the family.
We can visit a place of your choice or we can suggest some of our favourite destinations.
Maybe you have a special family spot that you love to go to? Perhaps you’re off on holiday to the seaside and wish to have a few of those magical memories captured. It could even be as simple as going for a walk and scouting out muddy puddles!
We shoot natural lifestyle images during our location sessions, as we don’t do over the top posing. You will have all of those simple natural moments captured so you can treasure them forever, as they are often the moments that can get taken for granted.
Investment from: £65, 10x8 mounted print included.
Milage may be charged depending on location.
(£30 booking fee payable at booking - £35 on the day)
There’s no place like home.
Sometimes the best place to capture your family is in your home. Your children feel comfortable, you don’t have to travel anywhere, you get to have an experience that you can treasure for the rest of your life, even when your children are all grown up, and have long since left the house.
Home is where the heart is, and I truly believe that using your house as your canvas for a shoot, is a unique way to treasure memories.
You don’t have to deep clean, or hire a skip in preparation for our arrival, we only need a few key rooms, and even then a tidy corner could suffice.
Not sure if your home would suit? Send us a few photos of your living spaces, or pop in for a cuppa and a chat, and we can have a look what we are working with, and advise you of the best places to shoot in your home.
Investment from: £75, 10x8 mounted print included.
Milage may be charged depending on your location

Fine Art Photography Experience
Our Fine Art Experience Sessions are like something from another world and time.
We will offer up a few ideas for locations, and explain the style of images we can create there.
These sessions are creative, magical, mysterious and the finished results will take your breath away.
As an artist I love to come up with new ideas and challenge myself creatively. These sessions do just that and I love getting you, my customer, on board with my vision.
Together we will create a range of unique images complete with bespoke fine art styling and post production.
These sessions are aimed at children aged 2 and a half and up. This experience is best suited for individual children, however if you wish to have more than one child attend, let us know and we can discuss it.
Investment starting from: £495. Exclusive packages available.
