Portrait Photoshoot

Portrait photoshoot for all ages over 4months old

Do you need to update you or your childs modelling portfolio?

Want to mark a special milestone or birthday without all the decorations?

Want the perfect portrait of you or your child to go up on the wall at home?


Cate was amazing with our 8m old daughter, I couldn't believe how comfortable she seemed with this complete stranger!
Absolute professional! The session was fun but also relaxed, It was exactly what we needed

-John and Sarah

I will treasure these pictures of our son forever and ever!
I honestly can't thank Cate enough for her endless patience and understanding with our (often difficult) 9 mo son. She's an angel!


How does it work?
First you pay the booking cost (50% of total cost) to hold your chosen time slot
Then you pay the remaining 50% the day before your booked session

The session will last about an hour and allow time for little play and snack breaks
We will take a variety of images of you baby in different outfits, on different 
I'd also like to take a family portrait or two if you'll allow it 

I will then see you again a week or so later so you can choose your favourite 5 or choose to upgrade your package
You will view a fully edited gallery of 15-20 images for you to choose from


I will then give you your chosen digital files and order your beautiful prints for you
You're then free to show your perfect new portraits off to everyone you know!

We had a great session with Cate and our little boy. She was very creative with her direction and captured some really great moments for us.
I’ve since bought another session as a gift for my sister and her little one and
we will be seeing Cate again to capture another years growth ourselves soon! Highly recommended

What if my baby isn't playing ball?
Sometimes it takes babies and children 10 minutes or so to get used to being in a new place but
I've never had a situation where the baby hasn't liked the studio/me or having they picture taken by me.

Why is this session only available over 4 months?
Because babies younger than this aren't quite in a decent enough routine for us
to know when is the time time of day to photograph them 

What about Parent and sibling shots?
I definitely want to include a few parent shots but if you have more children
then please book a family portrait session instead.
Do please bring along family pets!

How safe is the studio for babies and toddlers?
Although many precautions have been taken to keep the studio as accident free as possible,
it's still a photography studio with light leads etc so babies will need to have eyes kept on them when wandering

How and when do we pay?
First i'll invoice you 50% of the bronze package to hold the session time for you. Your chosen session time will not be secure until this is paid.
Then i'll invoice you the remaining 50% of the bronze package the day before your session. This needs to be paid before the session can commence.
You will have then payed for the full Bronze package and are in no way obliged to pay anything else unless you choose to upgrade your package.
You'll have your gallery viewing session 1 or 2 weeks after your session.
At this meeting you'll view a slideshow of your images and be able to observe the variety and quality of your images.
You'll choose which 5 images you'd like to keep or upgrade your package to include more digital images and prints.
You will also be able to see samples of wall art, frames, print boxes and books.
You will only have one gallery viewing meeting so you should make sure that all decision makers are present.
Payments for package upgrades, wall art and products are made via the card machine in the studio.

Are you insured?
Of course. I am fully insured with 'Photoguard Insurance' for professional photographers.
Certificates are on display in my studio and available to view upon booking on request.

Are you Qualified?
Yes, 4 years of official photography qualifications as well as additional specialist posing and safety training.
