family Photography

in Hampshire & surrounding areas.

Capturing you as a Family is so important. So often we are hidden behind our phones documenting your child and partner that we forget to step into the frame ourselves. Its so vauable to pass down images to your children where you are present!

At Home



1 hour shoot at your home or on location

All final edited images are in an online gallery

A selection of 5 4×6 prints to choose from


to Expect

If you’re booking a location shoot I will work with you and offer up ideas on locations I think will suit for the shoot.

If shooting at your home I will be searching for the best possible light and space so don’t be alarmed if I come into your home and move things around a little! I like to use all aspects of the house but mainly the living room, master bedroom, and child’s bedroom. That being said please make sure rooms are tidy and clutter-free, this is less distracting in the photos.

I’ll be with you for around 1 hour making sure it runs as smoothly as possible and documenting those precious moments.

I’m not just there to take photos, though – I’ll be there to support you in any way I can. Entertain any children or even make you a cup of tea if you need a sit down to feed your new little one!

My style is very natural and authentic. I blend in as much as possible so that you and your family are relaxed and I get to capture those candid moments of you all.

My posing is very minimal so there’s no awkwardness I’ll give light prompts on how to pose but I really do just snap away and capture the beauty of you as a complete family.


optional Extras

Prints start from £6 an image

post Shoot

My turnaround time for a gallery is 2-3 weeks, but usually before.

If you order an album or prints they can take up to 4 weeks from design to delivery.

The Coote Family

We’ve had two photoshoots with Melissa and the photos are all absolutely stunning! Both the newborn and the cake smash shoots left us struggling to decide which photos to choose, in the end we bought all of them!

Melissa is easy to work with, professional and has the patience of a saint! I have no hesitation in recommending Melissa and we’re already talking about booking another shoot in with her next year.

your Questions

How many Images do we get?

I don’t cap the amount of images I deliver but in general 50+

When is the best time to book a shoot?

For bump photos I say around 8/9 months pregnant so we can capture your bump in all its glory!

Newborn within the first 10 days is usually best. They are still in that tiny squishy phase and also means you’ve had time to settle in as a family a little. But anytime that you want to document your family really!

Family Photography can be anytime!

How do we book?!

Please use the contact form below to enquire when I’m available!

How much is the deposit?

£100 on booking and then full payment due a week before the shoot

How far do you travel?

All over! Locations outside of the Hampshire border will incur a small travel fee

Can we add on extras after the shoot?

Absolutely! Your gallery will stay online and you can download and use those images as you wish. If you want to buy an album, prints or usb this can be done after receiving your final gallery.


Are you insured?

Yes! I have full admenity and liabilty insurance.

What if my house is dark?

Not to worry! Each shoot really does vary so I’m used to adapting to my surroundings. I do also have studio lights as a back up if I were to need them but I generally like to use natural light as much as possible.

I don't want the shoot at home

Not to worry! I can help you find a lcaotion that suits you
