Short outdoor family photoshoots in East London

What is a mini shoot I hear you say? Well, it is just what the name implies - a shorter shoot experience but you can still expect all the joy and a gallery full of beautiful images of you and your family! I need just twenty minutes to make some motherhood magic with you - and yes, whilst that isn't *much* time, it is enough time to capture some great shots and give you updated family imagery for your walls and family photo albums.

If you're unsure about investing in a full shoot, or worried about how you or your children will feel in front of the camera, mini shoots are an affordable way to dip your toe in and try out some professional photography. I make sure you are fully prepped for the experience with a shoot guide and styling advice, and with two tiny tearaways of my own, I know how things can go sometimes - it is totally fine, I just keep chasing you all around with my camera and capture you just as you are! Do not worry about anyone 'behaving', just come prepared to have a good time. As you will see in the photos below, when sessions are focussed on fun and not posing, personalities come out to play!

Back in autumn, I ran some outdoor mini shoots in East London. I had all different clients - newborns, toddlers, older children - all accompanied by a parent or two. We played, we laughed, some of us had a few strops (mostly my own boys whilst they helped with the set up!), we had hugs, games, and even some tree climbing! Soft moments, silly moments, sloppy moments - your moments. Family chaos and cuddles documented for you with love and care.

We booked a mini shoot with Amy in October and she picked the most beautiful setting and captured our child perfectly. We loved the props and Amy was really fantastic with our child. I'm not very comfortable in front of the camera but Amy made us all feel at ease and we love the images. Would book every year and highly recommend!

Thank you to all my autumn mini clients for just being you, and letting me capture you all just as you are.


I have opened up ten spring mini shoot sessions in London and Northamptonshire for March and April 2024. These sessions can be gifted for Mother's Day - just let me know you want to gift a session, and I will send you a beautiful card that you can give to a wonderful mama in your life on Mother's Day!
