Hello!

 

I'm Amy! A passionate family, maternity and newborn photographer based in Sussex.


Capturing the true magic, natural love and connection between a family brings me so much joy and it is an incredible honour to spend time with each family and get to know what makes their own gang uniquely wonderful.


I am a dreamer, overly optimistic and passionate about love. I have high expectations of my photography and aim to capture only the most magical moments of you and your beautiful family...and trust me, there will be so many moments.


If you are looking for authentic, relaxed photographs of your family that are bursting with feeling and emotion, then you've come to the right place!

FAQ

WHAT IS LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY?

During a Family Photo Shoot, after capturing the all important traditional portrait poses, the majority of images will be more of a 'lifestyle and documentary' vibe.

This style of photography is more informal and leaves space to capture the pure essence of a family and the connections between them.

These are real moments and document every day life.

The raw emotions, smiles and giggles are all real and the word 'cheese!' isn't uttered once. There is usually little interaction with the camera (although I will give you some direction) letting even the personalities of the most shy members of the family shine through. ✨

WHAT IF MY CHILD DOESN'T WANT TO HAVE THEIR PHOTO TAKEN?

Sometimes it takes children (and grown ups!) a little time of warm up to having their photo taken.

As an experienced photographer and fellow mum, I have a few tricks up my sleeve to get a little giggle from them.

Having said that, I am a true believer that once they see the rest of the family joining in and having fun, they usually do the same out of fear of missing out!

Plus, many of the most cherished photographs are those of pure love and the natural connection between a child and those that they trust, rather than the cheesy smiley posed portraits.

WHAT IF IT IS RAINING ON THE DAY OF MY PHOTOSHOOT?

If your photoshoot is planned to be outdoors and the photoshoot is likely to be a complete wash out, we will rearrange your session to an alternative date.

We will make a final decision a few hours before your photoshoot as the weather can change quickly.

Can my dog be in the photos too?

That is a definite yes from me! If you have a dog and they are part of the family, then absolutely we will include them in many of the photos too.

If you have young children and a dog attending the photoshoot, (as they both tend to want to do their own thing!) I cannot guarantee that I will get a photo of the whole family plus the dog.

I will absolutely try my best but you may need to decide beforehand which is the focus of the photoshoot, the children or your dog.

CAN WE CHOOSE THE LOCATION FOR OUR PHOTO SHOOT?

Absolutely! If you have a location in mind that means something to you and your family, we will certainly do our best to have your photoshoot at this location.

Depending on the time of your photoshoot, your location may require some sort of 'open shade', but I will be giving you advice on this when we book your photoshoot.

I also have a location catalogue of all my favourite places to take family photoshoots which I can send you for you to choose from if you haven't a particular place in mind already.

When is the best time for me to book?

You can book a family photoshoot at any time however I would recommend booking around 4-6 months beforehand to guarantee the time of year you would like, especially in the Summer months.

How Do I Book?

A 50% deposit & signed contract is required in order to get a provisional date booked and secured on my calendar. The remainder of your balance is due two weeks prior to your photoshoot date.

Are you willing to travel?

Yes! Definitely! Travel fees are applied if I'm travelling more than 20 miles from the area BN14, which is charged both ways.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE THE FINAL EDITED PHOTOS?

I totally understand the anticipation of seeing your final photos. My editing process typically takes 3-4 weeks, depending on the volume of images and the complexity of editing required.

I prioritise quality and attention to detail to deliver exceptional images that exceed your expectations.

Do I have to order prints through you?

I highly recommend ordering prints through the professional printing lab that I work with, but it isn't required. The difference in quality is huge when it comes to ordering through a professional lab, so I always love to help with prints!

I have an online ordering store right within your gallery to purchase prints or albums which I am happy to help create for you with a selection of your favourite photos.

Can I order prints?

Yes, absolutely! Once you have received the link to your final edited photo gallery, you can choose any digital images and prints that are included in your package.

If you would like to purchase upgrade packages, additional prints, wall art or albums, you can also do this straight from your online photo gallery.

If you would like any help choosing or creating an album, please let me know as I love to help.

O'Reilly Family

We would highly recommend using Amy for any family photoshoot, especially with little ones!

We had our shoot at the weekend with our chaotic 4 Yr old and 18 month old - Amy was calming and fun which put us all at ease and caught natural shots of us all.
She gave great advice and direction throughout. She was flexible with dates, times and location to suit the kids (and weather!) which was much appreciated!!

Thank you so much Amy 💕 We'll treasure the photos forever!
