Mini Sessions

Spring is on its way and so are the beautiful blossom and colours that come along with it.

It’s the perfect time to take advantage of my much anticipated mini sessions, with bluebells, dandelions, and buttercups providing a beautiful setting for your family memories.

My Spring photoshoots in Wallingford are perfect for capturing your family year on year and watching them grow. They are fun, snappy sessions that celebrate the beauty of the seasons.

“We can’t stop looking at our amazing images. We love them!”

captured their personalities beautifully.

The photos Rachel has taken of my family are just stunning, even with a grumpy toddler. Rachel is so natural with the kids who adored her instantly and she captured their personalities beautifully.

We had an amazing photo shoot with Hazelnut Photography. Beautiful pictures of a woodland walk that really captured the whole family.

We were all at ease and loved the experience.


She has such a wonderful manner with the children and everyone is so relaxed and happy when around her. The photos are beautiful and will be up in our home for years to come.

What to expect

Spring mini sessions are so much fun! Capture your family in the beauty of the Oxfordshire countryside, surrounded by beautiful blossoms which create stunning whimsical family portraits.



Choose your favorite spring bloom!


Arrive for your shoot 5-10 minutes before your assigned slot.


Enjoy 30 minutes of family fun, while I capture the memories!

What can I expect from my mini shoot?

I will spend 30 minutes taking pictures of you and your family having fun together.  I will guide you to the right spots for the best light and give you tips on how to pose, sit, etc.  I will take pictures of you all together and individually to give you a good range of images to choose from.

Once we have said our goodbyes, I will be in touch with you to show you your completed gallery within 1-2 weeks of your session.

Please be prompt for your mini session as each family is assigned only 30 minutes and it would be a shame to have to shorten your session.

What should I wear to my spring mini session?

Always dress so you feel comfortable and yourself!  But to really make your images look as special as possible, I recommend taking time to plan your family’s clothing for your spring mini session.

Avoid any obvious labels on clothes or bold patterns.  These can be distracting in the images when all eyes should be on you!

At spring time, I like to opt for subtle neutral colours.  This includes whites and pastel shades such as creams, pinks and blues.

What happens if the weather is bad?

If it is forecast to rain, I will reschedule your photoshoot to the following week.  If it rails again and we are forced to cancel, I can refund you in full or you can transfer your deposit to another mini session later in the year or put it towards a full session, tailored to you.

Is a mini session right for me?

Mini sessions are perfect if:

– You only need a few additional photos for your family album.

– You are short of time but still want beautiful family photos.

-If you want to buy the session as a present (gift vouchers available!)

How do I book?
