About

Hi! Welcome to my page. My name is Kasia and I am a newborn, children & family portrait photographer based in Cheltenham and available to travel.

In 2009 I began my journey within photography and never looked back. From a young age I've always had a passion for art & painting and this has had a major influence on my photography style. I also love nature, this is why my photoshoots are done outdoors as I feel a strong connection with photography and nature. 

I really enjoy and take pride in capturing magical moments that will be cherished forever. Always putting in the most heart & effort possible within photoshoot hours to be able to get the best shots. My goal is to create unqiue, art like photographs and capture the best possible version of you & your family. 

Please feel free to browse around my portfolio so you can see examples of my work. If you think this is what you're looking for don't hesitate to contact me via the contact form on my website.

Sessions information

NEWBORN SESSION

The newborn session takes place at the comfort of your own home.

The best time to photograph a newborns is while they're under two weeks of age. After two weeks babies are a little harder to settle and things like colic and baby acne can start to flare up. You can contact me at any time during your pregnancy to give me an estimated due date, I will then make a  booking and when you arrive home from hospital with your brand new baby you can contact me as soon as possible to arrange the session date. I supply high quality props: e.g. blankets, hats, headbands, outfits, baskets, etc. I am a natural light photographer therefore my sessions start between 10.00am - 11.00am and lasts 2 - 4 hours with plenty of time for feeding and comforting. I have over eight years of experience working with newborns so you can be assured that your baby will be in safe hands. Safety is always my priority during each session!

About 2 - 4 weeks after your photoshoot, I will email you with a password for your private online proofing gallery. The online gallery will remain active for 14 days.

MATERNITY SESSION

Pregnancy is the most special and unique time in your life and my goal is to create stunning images that you will treasure forever. Every pregnency is different so there is no "perfect" time for your maternity photo shoot. I generally recommend scheduling your session between 29 - 36 weeks, when your bump is looking gorgeous.

Maternity sessions are taken outdoors. I have a few favourite locations in the area which I use depending on what season it is. I'm open to your ideas as well. Strong light is destructive for the photos so best time for a photoshoot is about 2 hours before the sunset on the sunny days. Earlier times are available on cloudy days only.

Photoshoot can be rescheduled if the weather isn't as planned.

What to wear?

All kind of long dresses are suitable.

I also strongly recommend to have a makeup and your hair styled.

FAMILY SESSION

One of the most important things I do in my approach to family photography is letting you and your children be yourself. The goal for your family's session is to make it enjoyable, fun & stress free!

My work captures your best moments, the joy and love that you share.

If you have a small children please make sure they had a nap and are in good mood before the session. Please bring their snacks and toys, it will help to get their attention.

What to wear?

The clothing you wear on the day of your photoshoot is very important and should be carefully planned ahead of the session. I will require everyone to have matching casual outfits. The outfits need to match, but can't be all the same. I do not recommend any clothing with logos or distracting prints.
