Outdoor and Studio Mini Sessions

“Give Me the Wild Children with their bare feet and sparkling eyes. the restless, churning climbers. the wild ones using their outside voices, singing all the way home. give me the wonder-filled, glorious mess makers dreaming of mountains and mud, aching to run through a field of stars.”

Nicolette Sowder, Wilder Child

Mini Sessions

I offer Mini Sessions throughout the year.

Sometimes they’re seasonal, and on fixed weekends, in a fixed location. Bluebells, Sunflowers, and Christmas Mini Sessions.

At other times I’m more than happy to fit Mini Sessions into my diary for you, when it’s best for you. This especailly applies to summer evening shoots, where I only book a maximum of 1-2 per evening.

“Pure, beautiful simplicity.”

Seasonal Outdoor Mini Sessions

There are a few reasons why a Mini Session might be a better option than a full Family Session for you.

It might be that you’d absolutely love to have a small set of high quality images in a Sunflower Field, or maybe you’d love the kids to be photographed at sunset during the summer holidays.

Maybe you’ve had a Family Shoot with me before, and you’d like a yearly update.

Whatever the reason, as long as I can fit it in, I’m happy.

Your kind words

We have just got our images back from the Autumn mini sessions and they are just beautiful!

Helen was great with the kids and got some really stunning natural shots. We have been trying to arrange a shoot all year due to Covid & Helen has been really understanding and helpful in getting this booked. A really special treat for my mum in Australia getting some amazing photos of her grandkids. We will definitely be back for more photos soon thank you!

We had a fantastic Mini Session with Helen on a summery evening in Chesterfield.

Helen was so patient, calming and really made us all feel at ease. She captured beautiful shots of my girls and my family, nothing too posed, just gorgeous natural pictures. We will treasure these photos always. Thank you, Helen x

Helen is an absolute talent

I’m so grateful for the beautiful moments she captured with my daughter. These pictures are something we will treasure forever.
From the moment we arrived, Helens warm friendly personality made us feel totally comfortable and at ease.
I can safely say that all our future needs, will be done by Helen.

Outfit and Styling Guide for Spring Sessions

I’ve put together a quick guide to help with choosing outfits for you and your family.


Are you doing Bluebell Mini Sessions this year?

Yes but not many. They will be between 30th April and 7th May. Please get in touch for availible times and to book.

Are you doing Sunflower Mini Sessions again?

Most definitely! As soon as I have date details from the farm they’llve be availible to book. Please let me know if you’d like me to put you on my contact list.

How about Poppies

Poppies are tricky! They don’t always pop up in locations where we can go. If you’d like me to let you know if the’yre availible close to the time, let me know.

Can I book a spring and summer evening session now/

Yes definitely, please get in touch any time and we can make a plan. I love these sessions so much, they’re always amazing!

Have you got anything new?

I’ve been gived exclusive access to a wildflower field this summer. I can’t wait! If you’d like to see a few photos and to book, please get in touch.

How far in advance should I book a studio Mini Session

Where possible I like to do these shoots during the week. I don’t usually do more than one a day. Book as soon as you can, we can always confirm the exact time nearer to the date.
