Mini Beach Shoots 2020


After the success of my mini beach shoots 2019, they are back in 2020 but with a few tweaks! The perfect gift for Mother's Day!

I very quickly realised that I can't do a shoot at the beach in 30 mins, so I've extended the time to an hour. I also discovered that to get the best combination of tide, weather and sunset times I can only do one shoot per day. This is all good news for my clients as sessions are now longer and more flexible. Hooray!

So, what's included in the Mini Beach Shoot package? Well, you have an hour long photo shoot at the beach, plus 5 prints and matching digital images for only £199! If you fall in love with the rest of the images (I will warn you that EVERYONE that had a shoot last year bought extra images, with most clients upgrading to the full digital package), there are upgrade packages available.

I'm only offering 10 slots (I ended up doing many more last year), as I need to make sure I've got time and weekend availability for all my family shoots too.

So, if you want one, be quick! You can book directly through the website.

See below for a small snippet of my beach fun from 2019. There's a real mixture of shoots, from a baking hot day to a crisp windy day. There was also a grandparents session, a maternity session and loads of gorgeous sunsets. If you want to see more, visit the blog, or check out my Instagram account.

Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day all you gorgeous Mums out there! I hope you're having a good old rest (what more can we ask for!?!)

I absolutely love it when Mums get in front of the camera. It's often a bit tricky to persuade Mums that they should be in the photos with their kids.  But when they get involved it's pure magic. Now the kids have a record of them with their Mum (who is usually the one behind the camera taking the photo)!

I've picked out a few of my favourite images of Mums with their kids. Mums giving their kids a good squeeze and the love is shining out of them. There's photos from all over South Wales including Spring shoots at Dunraven Gardens, Summer shoots in local meadows and farmland, Autumn shoots in Castell Coch and Winter shoots on Southerndown beach.

Find out more about booking your South Wales family photo shoot on my pricing page. See more of my work in my family portfolio.
