The Photos of Us – Prices & FAQ’s

Streatham family photographer - documentary session with Anna and family.

Congratulations for following your gut and choosing to find out how we can tell the story of your family’s life together. Your kids, relatives, and your future self will be smiling back at you as they turn the pages of their photobook. This is where you can find out answers to all of your questions about how it works.

1. I’m interested but how long will it take?

Lots of other types of photography services will have you in and out of a session faster than an episode of Numberblocks. And that’s often the case when you hire a service. It’s always about getting back to your life, and not putting you out too much or for too long.

We do things a little bit different. Because when you hire me, the one thing you will not do is leave your life. You can carry on with the cooking and you can extend the football match way into extra time. And I will not hold anything up at all.

Whatever your session, I’ll enjoy being there, and I’m damn sure you and your kids will feel the same. We’ll chat throughout the session(s), share stories, I’ll join in with games, and we’ll share quiet moments where no-one needs to talk, or do anything at all.

3. Is there anything you need us to do?

This question I hear a lot when people are worried that they might be too boring and won’t be able to take interesting pictures with.

And I get it. We are all used to seeing a clamber of images, each one trying to reach the top of the social media feed by being the most ‘spectacular’.

So then you might, or might not, be surprised when I tell you: that there isn’t anything else you need to do  – apart from booking your session.

Let me ask you this: 

Do you know that bit in films that often comes up just before the climactic ending? We cut to a quiet domestic scene: a flashback perhaps, of our hero with their mum. And in this brief pause to all the explosions and chases, we’re offered a human connection to what’s driving this otherwise crazy plot.

Well, that brief moment in the film is your photo album. Not the aliens, or the giant holograms. Not anything that needs social media wows. Just the images of your own meaningful, shared, happiness in its real everyday setting.

And why? Well, I’m pretty sure you’re all over the answer to this. And I’m thinking it’s something along the lines of: because you love each other exactly as you are, doing the things that you tell yourselves to do, not what other people tell you to do. And this is how you’d bloody well love to see yourself.

For me, I believe that these everyday moments in your life are timeless, and worthy of the finest album. End of story.

Well, is ‘now’ the right now?

This is a simple and important question. And I can’t tell you when the exact right moment is for your session. But if you’re feeling like this is connecting with you – after seeing enough images and reading enough about the why’s and the how’s, then this is the very best moment to do it.

Booking your session is easy. Just fill out a short booking form, together with a small payment of £55, and your session is secured. The remaining session fee is paid two weeks before your session.

Call me on +44 (0) 7752 674652 to go over anything you’re wondering about – I’m always on the other end of the phone and I’d love to hear your thoughts and answer whatever questions you might have. Message me at: and I’ll take you through the booking process.
