Babies and Toddlers

Please make your appointment at a time to suit your child – just after a regularly taken nap is a good choice.

It’s a good idea to bring your child’s own drink or a bottle of milk to help them settle.

We do find the odd treat can work wonders too!

We will take the sitting at your child’s pace, working with them and taking breaks where necessary, for nappy changes and snacks.

Be relaxed about your child’s behaviour; big cheesy grins are not always the best look!

Laura has endless patience with children and will naturally bring out the best in them if left to her own devices.

Individuals, Family Groups and Older Children

If possible, wear something timeless – Laura’s images last forever, high fashion does not! We like to encourage teenagers to bring a selection of their own choice of clothes  so they can express themselves and feel at ease.

Try to allow children to wear something they are comfortable in; although jeans and a t-shirt photograph well, bright primary colours also look fabulous on finished images.

Laura often takes shots of children without parents or other family members present. Teenagers in particular are often less self-conscious, revealing a relaxed and sometimes surprising side to their personality.

Depending where we are, some images can be taken in the fields or woods so do bring a change of outdoor clothes and footwear – it can get muddy!!!

A Word on Maternity

When it comes to what to wear for maternity, comfort level is important for you to feel at ease. You can choose anything from fully clothed to tasteful nudity.

It is a good idea to bring several choices of maternity wraps, but you are welcome to bring out a couple of different ideas yourself – whether it’s an open loose man’s shirt or a kaftan. Some choose objects such as a sheer material or special vintage scarf to drape across the belly.

I do have several options available.


After your sitting with Laura, you will be emailed a selection of photographs and sent all the images on a CD.

You then get to choose your 3 images that you want printed and order any extras. You will have plenty of opportunity to discuss your preferences and specific requirements after the session.
