So - what actually IS a Lifestyle and Location Session?

Well - the 'Location' bit is easy : - it means we are somewhere else other than in my studio!!

The 'Lifestyle' bit is a little more complicated because it depends quite a lot on YOU and your lifestyle. But, in a nutshell, this is a "story- telling" session. Every little moment captured from this little bit of 'NOW' in your lives.

But that 'NOW' is different for everyone.

'Now' you might be expecting your first baby! Or you may have just brought that first baby home - the nursery all newly painted and the house brimming over with flowers and cards.          

Or 'now' you might be the Mama of three - tearing your hair out!  Or the Great-Grandma of twenty....wondering where the years went!

Your 'now' might be you with your dogs. Or the horses. Or your 'Besties'.Or whatever else makes you 'YOU'.

Every one of these sessions is different. Because every one of you is different!

So simply choose which suits you the best for where you are now - at this moment - in life.  A 'Location' Portrait session or a full 'Story Telling' session .....The Stories of Us. 

You will never get this time back.

THE STORY OF US SESSIONS


From £699

Untitled photo


The "Story of Us"  Sessions - complete with your very own story book in a beautiful matching - and totally bespoke - Legacy Box!

These sessions are longer than a standard location session to give time for you all to relax and chill and for me to then be able to get the very real images of the story that is your life. They also come with ALL of your images as high resolution, digital files as standard because these are 'story telling' sessions rather than 'portrait sittings' - so we are aiming to capture moments as well as those more 'formal' portraits! And because we are capturing moments these sessions come with a LOT more images!  And you will never be able to choose!  So you get them all!

So just imagine something for one moment...... One of these sessions each and every year! What a way to record your family story as it grows!!


*2020 COVID-19 UPDATE*

2020 has seen the dreadful, incredibly sad but hopefully temporary demise of the Big Wedding.

In it's place have arrived the 'Minimonies', the small and bijou weddings and the elopements!

If you are currently organising an event with less than 20 guests then The Annie Bee 'Story of Us' Sessions are now available for you to book for your Wedding Day.

Will also happily come to Gretna with you if that is what's happening!!

Two hours of life captured for all time.

The perfect 'Children's Birthday Party' session! Jelly. Ice-Cream. Cakes and Mayhem.

A family walk on a Sunday afternoon. A visit to Grandma (How I WISH I had photos of my Grandma's house! I remember it SO well from those hazy days of childhood and I LOVED being there!)

A long lazy afternoon with the paddling pool in the garden (and a hose! Give them a hose.....and, trust me on this, the magic will happen!)

Or, for New Mama's, a beautiful session to record their first days a home with baby - the new nursery. Changing. Feeding. Cuddling. Sleeping. All of those little precious moments.

Or how about an amazing 'Birthday' present for someone special? You never know what to get Granddad..... How about the story of HIM, sitting by the river doing what he loves most - fishing - captured in a book for his 80th birthday? Or for your Mum - out with her dogs. Or with the Grandchildren. Or with YOU!

The possibilities are limited only by your imagination!

After your session choose your favourite 30 for your beautiful, handmade Italian 'Story of Us' album.

Perfect for when you have all the family there - perhaps a party or just those Sunday afternoons when everyone is at home for a change and having a BBQ in the garden.

Perfect for coming with you for that family picnic. Or a day out somewhere lovely! Or even joining you on holiday - camping, in the caravan, on the beach! You tell me where!

Perfect for coming with you to that dog show. Or Pony Club. Or the opening meet. And for capturing the very essence of YOU and what makes you tick.

Perfect for shooting parties. And Christmas parties. And works parties. And hen parties. (And stag parties....if you dare!!!)

And perfect for Mama's with stories to tell of a life juggling ballet lessons, and music lessons, and football practice and Little People and New Puppies!

After your session we will design your beautiful 'Story of Us' album with your 50 favourite images. 

You will receive all* of the  images from your session as full size, high resolution digital files.

THE 'DAY IN THE LIFE' SESSION - £1299


A whole DAY of your life. Captured!

Mama's - this is a beautiful session for YOU. To capture the very essence of life as a Mama. The good moments. The less than good moments. The downright 'I am tearing my hair out' moments!!

We can do this at home. Or on holiday. Or wherever you would love. I will be with you from when they get up until you put them to bed - sorting out breakfast to reading that bedtime story!

Because - in a heartbeat - they will be grown and gone. And only your story books will be there to remind you what it was REALLY like!

This is the session for the 'event'. For travelling with you to those horse trials that you eventually qualified for!  That marathon that you FINALLY entered. The dog show that you never thought you'd do. Or just the village fete - getting the ponies ready, the first clear round they EVER did, the celebration ice-cream  and then going home, bedding down, rugging up. And finally bedtime stories with that clear round rosette pinned to the headboard.

Or for the season - the stories of Harvest. Or Christmas.

The stories of us.


These are the moments you will want to treasure 40 years down the line. These are the moments you wish you had of YOUR great-grandma's life..... to know what it was like. The clothes she wore. The kitchen in which she made your Grannys meals. Your Granny....sitting playing with the toys she had then. The vegetables growing in the garden as they 'Dug For Victory'.  The trinkets on the mantelpiece. The minuscule details. The tiny little moments of lives well lived and people well loved. This will be YOUR legacy for the generations to come.

I will be with you ALL DAY - capturing every little moment.

Afterwards you will receive:-

Your choice images in a  60 page Story Book Album

A collection of FIVE  Fine Art Prints for your gallery wall.

A digital collection of every** beautifully edited image taken on the day.


*All and **Every Image - an exact number of images is super difficult to tell you in advance - because it all depends on what you get up to!

From a two hour Story of Us Session you can expect to receive approximately 50 beautifully edited images

From the four hour session approximately 100 .

And from the 'Day in The Life' Sessions approximately 250
