Heart-bursting photos for families looking for something a bit different!

This spring I have a special treat for you!

We are doing themed spring minis with a vintage 1950s VW camper van called Penny!

This is a spring mini with a difference and wow is it going to be fun!

The actual shoot, which I was kind of nervous about because I’m not fond of photos, was such a blast!! She is amazing with children. It was so easy and fun. And the best part? The photos are so, so gorgeous. I’m having trouble picking which ones to get!

Meet Penny, the beautiful vintage VW campervan! She’ll be in a gorgeous location and we’ll be doing a themed photoshoot with Penny as a backdrop. If you want some beautiful photos of your kids, you and your family with a fun twist then this is the shoot for you!

A mini session could be perfect for your family if:

You want something a bit different. Meet Penny the campervan - you can't get this shoot anywhere else!

You don't want the time or financial investment of a full shoot at the moment and just want a quick update between shoots

You've never had family photos before and you want to have a taster of a shoot

This minishoot session with me isn’t a good fit for your family if:

You want extended family in your session - you'll need more time for that so let's chat about a full session

You think that selfies are "good enough" because loads of people use them - I believe every family deserves better

You want photos in a specific location or at your home. You need a more bespoke experience which I'm delighted to provide!

Wouldn’t it be great if you could get amazing photos of your family and actually have fun while taking them?

You can! I’m here to help – just drop your email and I’ll send you all the info.

Just to make it super clear, you have zero obligation to buy anything – you’re just receiving the info about the shoots!

Usually I am behind the cameraphone, so it was lovely to get some proper photos of the whole family together that I actually want to hang on the wall, and now our extended family also want copies for their walls!

St albans spring photoshoots in the park

Do you ever feel like?

You worry that the kids (or hubby?!) won’t behave on a photo shoot?

The great news is these shoots are short and sweet! They’re super fun so you won’t need to persuade the reluctant family members – anyone can manage 20 minutes (and they’ll be surprised when they actually enjoy themselves!!)

Does money hold you back from booking photos?

Booking with someone new means that you are stepping into the unknown so this is a great way to have a taster session. It’s similarly brilliant if you only want a few photos to update your family frames or gift to grandparents.

Always critical of yourself in photos?

A lot of us shy away from cameras because we tend to pick ourselves apart in the photos. I implore you to be brave and step in front of the lens. It’s so important that you are in the photo for your family and for your children’s futures. Be brave!

So how does it work?

In only 20 minutes you will do both of these things:

– have an awesome time with your family in a fun and unique setting while ticking long overdue family photos off your to do list!

– get the grandparents off your back about those photos they want for that empty frame on the mantlepiece (plus get photos you’ll adore for yourself)

Not bad for a morning’s work eh?!

And what about the details?

The experience includes:

– All the information you’ll need in advance of your shoot

– A brilliantly fun experience on the day followed by a beautiful gallery of stunning photos

– Three digital downloads of your choice from a gallery of 10 with the option to upload to purchase additional images or custom wall art

I’m Tori and I’m here to help you freeze time!

Like you, I’m a parent so I know the eternal struggle between the days feeling long and the years feeling short. It was just yesterday I was holding my son for the first time and now he’s planning his sixth birthday party! I want all my memories in photo form as well so I can remember how they felt. 

I’m a moth-hating, travel loving, metaphorical plate-spinning Mum who laughs at inappropriate things (but often doesn’t get jokes that others find funny).

When I’m not taking photos of amazing families like yours, you’ll often find me eating my family’s chocolate while wearing a Comfy (which can only be described as a hoodie for a giant!).

You can see some pics of me and my boys below 🙂

What to do now…

If you think you’d love your own gorgeous photos of your family, drop your email below and I’ll send you the full details shortly when you can decide if you want to book a slot.
