summer portrait days 2023


Over the last (almost) 20 years, I have been lucky to be able to photograph in so many beautiful locations with so many wonderful families. But there is a special spot that I’d really love to share with you.

There is something special about the light at Merthyr Mawr sand dunes on a summer evening. It could be the reflection from the white sand or the way the sun peeps through the trees and flowers.

I love holding shoots here and the kids love it too. They can run freely with the sand between their toes as I capture natural images with my signature dusting of just a little bit of magic.

What a perfect location for Summer Portrait Days. What do you think? I hear cries of ‘YESSSS!!!’.

This is the first time I have every done discounted summer sessions. I expect these to be super popular and strongly suggest advanced booking.

Summer Portrait Day Sessions will be held on weekday evenings only over the summer holidays. There will be a 30-minute slot at 6.30pm and another at 7.30pm. 

I will only be accepting 4 sessions per week. When these slots are full, I will close down booking for that period. The calendar below will be updated regularly to reflect current availability.

You can secure your session today with a deposit of £99. The balance of £100 will be due no later than 14 days before your session date. This balance payment can also be split into smaller instalments if you wish.

your session includes:

• A 30-minute evening mini photo session at Merthyr Mawr Sand Dunes (near Bridgend). Start times from 6.30pm onwards throughout the summer holidays.

• Pre-session advice including my comprehensive ‘What to Wear Guide’

• Fully hand edited gallery of around 15/20 images to choose from

• Your favourite 3 images as high-resolution digital files, suitable for printing and sharing

Price: £199 (deposit £99)

That’s no problem at all.

Regular Mini Sessions can be booked at any time. You can choose the date to suit you (subject to availability) and also the location.

You’d love a family shoot but you think you’d like a longer session.

I got you. That’s what Adventure Sessions are all about. A 1 – 2 hour session is great for bigger families, for children that perhaps would benefit from a bit more time and those people who want a bigger and more diverse set of images to choose from.
