BACK TO SCHOOL MINI SESSIONS IN LONDON & SURREY

Document each school year with gorgeous school photographs that you’re proud to share and display at home

Time flies! Another school year is just around the corner, and your child is another year older...

You’re so proud to see them grow. But part of you wants to press pause and freeze this moment in time before they get too big.

The trouble is that traditional school photographs often don’t capture the moment the way you’d like them to…from wonky ties and scruffy hair to expressions you’ve never seen before!

Book a back to school mini session and I’ll capture natural, relaxed portraits of your child in their school uniform. Photographs that capture their true personality without any awkward expressions, cheesy grins or stuffy, old fashioned backdrops.

Wouldn’t it be great to start the school year with the peace of mind that you’ll have a set of school photographs that you love…..

 
  • With no mad dash on the first day of term to try and take photographs before school starts?
  • No worrying about whether your child will have scruffy hair or lunch down their top by the time they see the school photographer?
  • And being excited to share the photographs with grandparents, family and friends?

Meet Your Photographer

Hello, I’m Clare.

I’ve been photographing children and babies for the last 8 years and am based close to Hampton Court, on the Surrey / London border.

I’m known for natural, relaxed photography without any cheesy props or awkward posing.

Over the years I’ve photographed hundreds of families and know just how to get the best from little people in a short amount of time.

I’m also a mum of two (my youngest is starting reception this year – big milestone!) so I know just how important it is to celebrate special moments like the start of the school year.

HOW DO BACK TO SCHOOL MINI SESSIONS WORK?

  • Each back to school mini session lasts ten minutes and is suitable for one school-aged child. Extra school-aged siblings can be added for a small fee.
  • The sessions are in an outdoor setting close to Hampton Court (KT8 postcode) and run on selected dates in late August and early September.
  • You’ll bring your child(ren) to the shoot dressed in their school uniform and I’ll capture a variety of natural, relaxed school portraits.
  • After the shoot you’ll be able to choose which images to include in your package. I’ll send these to you by digital download.
  • You also have the option to order extra digital images and prints at this stage should you wish.

7 days after your session you’ll be able to view the final, edited images in a private, online gallery.

The gallery will be live for three full days whilst you choose which photographs to include in your package.

Once you’ve chosen your images, I’ll send them to you as high resolution digital files.

At this point you also have the option to order extra digital images and prints.

The mini sessions will take place outdoors in the Hampton Court area. I’ll send you a map with the meeting point around a week before your session.

If it rains your session will be rescheduled to exactly the same time on the following day – please make sure that you are free to attend on both days before you book.

Unfortunately I’m not able to accommodate reschedules for back to school mini sessions.

Your school aged children will be the focus of these sessions, but parents are welcome to jump into one of the photographs too. 

I take your privacy very seriously, and will only publish pictures from your shoot in my online portfolios with your permission. If you do give permission the pictures are always shared anonymously (I would never share your or your children’s names.)

I will ask you about this when you book your session, and if you don’t want me to share the pictures from your session you can let me know then.
