Hi, I'm Jo, the photographer 

I’ve been photographing Surrey families for nearly a decade now and absolutely LOVE my job.

I'm an outdoor girl, who loves nature, which is why all my family photoshoots take place outdoors, in amazing Surrey locations.

It’s really important for me to deliver you professional, colourful & emotive images that you will keep in your family for generations to come.

 

From initial enquiry to receiving your images, my main aim is to make the whole process super easy for you, and for you to leave the experience a satisfied customer with a set of images you love.

This page is all about my forthcoming bluebell sessions at the end of April 2022. If you would prefer to have your family photos in another stunning Surrey location check out my locations page for more information, or just give me a call on 07967112607 and we can have a chat.

LET’S TALK ABOUT BLUEBELL FAMILY PHOTO SESSIONS

Bluebells are a protected and by law we are not allowed to pick them or stand on them. Whist my images on this page may look like families and individuals are stepping on them, they are not. The families are on little pathways in among the bluebells, you can not see them because of the angles in which I take the shots, plus a little Photoshop magic to hide the pathways.

I offer two types of Bluebell Sessions

What to expect from a Bluebell Family Photoshoot from start to finish

 

Before the shoot

Once you are booked in I will send you a what to wear guide, which is full of ideas and examples of what your family could wear to the bluebell shoot. A lot of my clients even send me WhatsApp snaps of the clothes they’ve picked to get my opinion, I’ll always be on the end of the phone if you need help or advice before your shoot.

Behind the scenes and before your shoot I will be creating a mood board, unique to your family so I have a clear vision of what I’m doing on the day

Day of the shoot

We’ll meet in Guildford, at what I consider, one of the best bluebell scenes in Surrey. It’s utterly magical and the colour of the bluebells along with the green trees is awesome!

Once we’ve said our hellos I will guide you and talk to you throughout the shoot, giving you instructions on where to stand/sit so we can get the most perfect, natural light on you and your family. Natural interaction between you and your family produces the best, un-posed images and I will guide you through this.

After the shoot

Expect to wait three weeks whilst your images are individually edited.

 

Once your images have been edited you will receive a link to your slideshow so you can take a look at your images in the comfort of your own home. After you have seen your slideshow you will have the option to choose from three digital collections.  

 

Each collection comes with bonus online store creditwhere you can choose framed galleries, canvasses and more

How much does a Mini Bluebell session cost?


The Mini Bluebell Session costs £149 and includes 3 digital images of your choice, plus £10 credit to use in your gallery store.




Where will the Bluebell Mini Session take place?


In a stunning woodland in Guildford. Don't worry, I will email you details and directions before your shoot.




What if it rains?


I will keep an eye on the forecast from two days before your shoot. If we do need to reschedule due to heavy rain or strong winds, you will have plenty of notice. I do ask you to be flexible on the day of your shoot as sometimes we may have to adjust the time we had planned to avoid a shower or two!




How do I get on the bluebell waitlist for 2022?


It's a good idea to get on the wait list as the sessions sell quickly. If you are on the wait list you will be the first to know when the dates are released. Click here to add your name and email address to the 2022 waitlist




What if we go into another lockdown?


I have everything crossed we don't, but if we do you can either be fully refunded or you can move your mini session to another date when we are out of lockdown.




What if my kids play up?


Sometimes kids do, but let me give you these tips. Follow these and it will reduce the likelihood of anyone playing up. 1. Make sure your children get a good nights sleep the night before (can't emphasise this enough) 2. Make sure they've eaten a good meal before the shoot. 3. If they're little, make sure you bring a snack and drink with you. and last but not least 4. If you stress out, your kids will naturally follow suit. The same goes for me, if I'm hyper, they will mimic my energy. My only instruction to you on the shoot is to be calm and relaxed. They don't need any instructions or guidence from you before the shoot. Calm photographer & calm parents = calm kids & beautiful photographs They don't need to be told to smile or to behave. If you're worried or stressed, your kids will pick up on it and behave in the same way. If you expect the shoot to go well and talk in front of them like it will, you will see the difference in your childrens behaviour. Leave it to me, if your child/ren are anything like my boy, they'll perform better for a stranger then they will their own parents anyway :D




What should we wear?


Don't worry, I will send you a guide before your shoot!




Why are Mini Sessions for children over 4?


I love working with babies and toddlers, but they need longer than 30 minutes. Nappy changes, snacks, drinks etc plus they need an environment where there are no time restrictions, so they can just be their happy little selves. Full sessions are great, not only for the relaxed time, but because the bluebell session doesn't have to take place in Guildford. There are other beautiful bluebell woodlands all over Surrey, so you could choose one closer to your home. Also, you choose the time and the date, what ever suits you and your family.




How much is a Full Family Bluebell Session?


The session Fee is £179 up front. This pays for your shoot and my time editing your images. Once you have seen your images you can choose from three digital collections starting from £399. For more information please take a look at my pricing page here




What if all your Bluebell Mini Sessions have sold out this year?


Add yourself to the Bluebell Waitlist here I often set up additional sessions if there is high demand, but this is not guaranteed. Once you're on the waitlist, I will email you as soon as more become available.
