Taking your child for a photography session can be quite a stressful experience. Shilo, a mum of two children herself, knows this from personal experience and set up her fun photography sessions where children can dress up and play with some wonderful props, whilst she captures beautiful photographs to treasure. Her sessions are relaxed and encourage your child to explore through sensory play, taking the stress away from both you and your child, giving natural fun filled photographs.
“I started my photography business after having my two beautiful children. I became passionate about photography through capturing my children growing up and achieving important milestones. These pictures have become special keepsakes that I cherish and i’m able to look back on them as I watch my children grow up. Photos are an important part of my life as they remind me of people, places, feelings and stories. They are memories that we want to remember.
I decided to turn this passion into a business. I currently have a home studio that I work from in Doncaster, as well as offering outdoor shoots locally at places like Cusworth Hall, which is a perfect setting for family photos.
I strongly believe that childhood should be a magical time and for this reason I decided to focus my business on fairy tales. I want my sessions to be an enjoyable and fun experience for both child and parents. This means the child can dress up, play in their setting with all the props and become a princess, a mermaid, a pirate, superhero etc. While the child is having fun and using their imagination, I can capture natural smiles and laughter, and it is a memorable experience for them. There is also no reason why the parent cannot be a part of the play as well and dress up if they want to. It takes the stress away from both parent and child when they can play and just enjoy their time in my home studio.
I offer newborn, family, prom, fairy tale inspired sessions, as well as outdoor photo shoots. I like the experience to be a personal one, so if you have anything particular in mind, I will do my best to accommodate and make it happen for you. I want you to come away with photos that you and your family can cherish. I also offer themed sessions throughout the year such as Christmas, Easter, Halloween and Back to School photo sessions. These are always great fun and such lovely ideas for gifts and cards. It is also a fantastic way of celebrating big events throughout the year. School photos in particular can be so boring. Whilst I do take the traditional ones you’d expect, I also encourage them to have fun and take some silly ones too.
I feel very lucky that people trust me to capture the most special people in their life. Children grow up in the blink of an eye and it is amazing to have these sweet reminders of when they wanted to be a princess or a pirate, or to mark their first year in school, or the Halloween costume they had chosen for that year. Please if you have the chance, check out my page and follow my work and I hope to hear from you in the future.”
With prices starting from just £30, photography sessions with Shilo are affordable too.
