Children and Family Photo shoot in Chesterfield

Sessions in your home or outdoors at a beautiful location in Chesterfield

I offer sessions both in your home and outdoors, both are equally beautiful. During home sessions I’ll encourage you to engage in an activity together, like reading a story or playing ball in the garden.

Outdoor sessions are perfect for children who have a lot of energy. We can let them run free and be themselves all the while creating images that show their personalities beautifully.


Many parents worry that their children will misbehave during the photo shoot.

I want to reassure you at all times I take the session at your child’s lead, and I’ll never ask them to do something they feel uncomfortable with. Because my sessions are more about having fun than sitting and smiling nicely for the camera, most of the time they won’t even know they are having their photographs taken which always results in the best portraits.

We had a wonderful experience with Helen!

The photo shoot with our three very young children was relaxed and fun. The photos were better than anything we could have imagined! They really captured the relationship between our boys and their new baby sister and the family bonds.

The photos reflected how much we all enjoyed ourselves and how comfortable Helen made us all feel! We have already booked a shoot in with the grandparents! Can’t wait to have some more wonderful memories captured! Thanks so much Helen! Helen took my third sons newborn pictures and since then has captured some precious moments such as our first Christmas as a family of five and Olivers christening day.

We wouldn’t go anywhere else. The children loved her and their time with her which made for some pure natural shots and she even managed to get some photos with me on that I actually like (a big achievement). If you want a great experience and some piccies to cherish forever Helen’s the one!! We won’t go anywhere else now!!! Thanks Helen

We had a really lovely photoshoot with Helen.

Was a little worried how the children would be having their photos taken but Helen made the whole experience very casual which showed in the beautiful pictures she took.

The only problem we found was trying to choose from all the photographs as there were so many great pictures! We would highly recommend Helen not only for her excellent photography skills but also for her child friendly personality, such a lovely lady.

I wanted some pictures of my little family, however not in a studio environment, sometimes these pictures are a little false and unnatural.

I wanted someone to capture us as we played and had fun. Then I found Helen, and so glad I did.

We had a chat about what I wanted and arranged a visit to Linacre. Spring colours, coats wellies and muddy puddles.
Helen captured us being relaxed and having fun, as a family together.
The finished results are fantastic. And will be using Helen again. I would highly recommend.
