 Child & family portraits



 45 minute photo shoot in the studio including 3 edited images of your choice - for up to 8 people

I take great pride in being able to capture close relationships within a family. The eye contact between you and your new baby, the special bond between siblings and those fun family moments. I like to keep things very natural and encourage all the aspects of your personalities that make your family unique. The private jokes, the tickles, the silly games you play together, capturing these moments for a lifetime.

Baby mini sessions

A 30 minute photo shoot including 3 edited images of your choice (1 child only, suited for ages 5-9 months)


The smiles, the cheekiness, the rolls on the legs, the funny faces, when they first sit up unaided... mini sessions are a great opportunity to capture these precious moments that pass by in a blink of an eye.


Cake Smash



1 hour photo shoot including 3 edited images of your choice

I will spend the time before hand discussing with you what kind of colour scheme you'd like and any particular theme you have in mind so we can work together to create your perfect images. I'll then show you some examples of what I think will work well until you're happy with the design.Within the photo shoot I offer a mini portrait session first, the cake smash and the tin bath shots after. However, you're welcome to split the session however you wish. 
Let’s get cakey!


Newborn shoots



 2 hour photo shoot including 3 edited images of your choice (4 days-3 weeks old)

The best time to book your newborn session is during your pregnancy, I will make a tentative booking for you based on your due date and then we can always alter nearer the time if need be. I photograph newborns from 4 days to 3 weeks old allowing me to capture a selection of those most cherished moment. From precious curled up sleepy shots, to when your baby is awake and in awe of their new world.. I won’t be placing your baby into any unnatural poses during your shoot, I like to keep things quite organic and natural using mainly light and neutral colours to create timeless images for you.


Fine art portraits



45 minute photo shoot including 3 edited images of your choice (2+ years)

My fine art portraits will be capturing the beauty, the innocence, expression and character of your child. These emotive images are perfect for gifts or if you’re simply looking for some striking and classic images of your children. 


Portfolio updates

From £70-

Whether you’re an actor, model, dancer or fresh out of training looking to make your mark on the industry, great professional headshots are a necessity. At my professional headshot photo sessions in Essex, I’ll work with you to find the perfect range of images to promote yourself at your best.


Dance shoots



45 minute shoot in the studio including 3 edited images of your choice (4+ years, up to 5 outfit changes, up to 2 people)

When I was younger I lived and breathed dancing. I loved how expressive you could be through movement and how incredible it felt to be on stage and perform to so many people. After choosing to pursue photography as a career I couldn’t think of anything better than combining the two of these passions together.
My Dance shoots are diverse and tailored to each individual style and age. So whether you’ve just bought your first pair of ballet shoes, you're in dance college wanting to create some visionary shapes and movement or if you want some shots of you in your show/festival outfits I’d love to capture this for you.

*For larger group dance shoots please contact me for prices*


Maternity photo shoots

1 hour shoot in the studio including 3 edited images of your choice


What an incredible and beautiful experience we are blessed with for a short time in our lives. Such a beautiful gift nature has given. I absolutely love documenting these precious moments. I like to keep my maternity sessions very simplistic and natural so the focus is all about the bond between you and your bump. I also like to discuss any ideas you have before the shoot so that your session is personal to you and exactly how you'd like it.

Laura is a brilliantly attentive and skilled photographer. I have used Laura for a newborn shoot and a christmas shoot, and have just booked in a cake smash shoot for my daughters 1st birthday too which I can’t wait for! Laura is great with babies and kids, her props and backdrops look brilliant
