My aim is that every photo shoot will be a fun day out for you.

When your day is full of genuinely fun, happy moments, my job of capturing lots of smiles and memories is an easy one.  This is the kind of experience I like to create for my clients and why we’re called “Smiley Day Photography.” 

I love photographing children, couples and families outdoors in beautiful natural locations in and around Surrey, where there is space for exploring and playing.  (I also enjoy the occasional site-seeing/city shoot too.)

Quite a popular option is gifting someone special with a Smiley Day voucher.  They’re particularly popular as Christmas gifts, anniversary gifts and as gifts for grandparents for a significant birthday.  Some families like to have the photo shoot as a surprise then gift their loved one with a photo gallery of the images from which they can choose their favourites.  Others gift a voucher for a future photo shoot where the recipients will be in the photo shoot.  Large group photo shoots are always great fun.

I look forward to hearing from you! 



Maternity photo shoot for a mum-to-be:

£150 for 1 hour of photography in an outdoor location

These are shorter photo shoots as I don’t want to keep a mum-to-be on her feet for too long.  Ideally I like to photograph mums around 34 weeks into the pregnancy (when your belly is beautifully round and while it’s still comfortable to move about or get up and down.)

Newborn photo shoot with the family:

£150 for 4 hours contiguous shooting in the home

The ideal time for photographing newborns is within the first 12 days as little ones are still quite sleepy and curled up so posing is easier. However saying that, I’m happy to photograph older babies too.  I offer a combination of styled and unstyled/lifestyle newborn photography and family photography, in the home.

“Smiley Day”

A family of 3-4:

£150 for 1 hour of photography in an outdoor location

I know some great spots for seasonal favourites like bluebell woods and fields of daffodils in and around Surrey.  you can also choose your own location that’s special to you.

Family photo shoot in Bluebells, Guildford

A “Smiley Day” family of 5-6:

£175 for 1-2 hours of photography outdoors on location

In all photo shoots I try to capture photos of each individual, a few of the whole family, a couple photo for the mum and dad and different combinations of family like brothers together/sisters together, brothers and sisters, mum and the girls, dad and the boys etc.  For this reason, the larger the family the more time we need as I take more photos than I would for a smaller family.

A Smiley Day family or group of 7-9:

£200 for a 2 hour+ photo shoot outdoors on location

This is a popular gift idea for a parent’s significant birthday or  grandparents’ significant anniversary where the cousins are photographed together. (I have vouchers available and am happy to photograph before or after the big day.)

Smiley Day Photography

A “Big Smiley Day” for extended families:

£250 for a 2 hour+ photo shoot outdoors on location for 10 or more

Extended family photo shoots for family groups of 10 or more are popular as photo gifts for grandparents for special anniversaries or significant birthdays. Often siblings and their families all get together and have a photo shoot together.

    Professional photographic prints, canvases, frames and full resolution digital files are available for purchase after your shoot.

    All photo shoots include 3 digital images, a 7″x5″ photograph and an 8″x10″ photograph printed on high quality photographic paper.

    There is no expectation to buy any extras but I hope that you’ll love your images so much you’ll want lots of options!

    I aim to make your photo shoot a fun “smiley day”  filled with happy memories! The more relaxed you are the better the photos will be so preparation is key…

    I want you to feel prepared, ready and relaxed for your “Smiley Day.” Fill in the inquiry form and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. We’ll put a date in our diaries for a meet-up where we can get to know one another and run through any ideas you may have.  I can give you location suggestions and would love to hear yours!  We can chat through what to wear and colour combinations that work well together.

    This is your photo shoot and these will be your photos so,  as far as possible, I try to plan for what you are hoping for while keeping within Smiley Day Photography’s style, photographing outdoors on location.
