Why use Titch for your Nursery & School Portraits

I am a professional photographer who loves to take relaxed, natural and outdoor photographs of children and their families. I treasure my own children’s school portraits but I always wished they had been a little less staged and little more joyful! … So I decided to offer exactly that to schools and nurseries.

Instead of the cloudy and blue sky backgrounds, I use the playgrounds and school fields as my sets and backdrops. This allows me to capture relaxed, natural and fun photos of the children outside throughout their time at school.

It's a personal service and I will be taking the photographs! I have extensive experience as an established family photographer. I know how to get those natural and genuine smiles and to make children feel relaxed in a short space of time!


  • The nursery / school will book me for a day or two (depending on the number of children involved).

  • There is no booking fee.

  • I will visit the setting in advance of the shoot to answer queries and assess the location.

  • I can bring an assistant with me or arrange for a member of the Friends / PTA to help in advance therefore taking the strain off the admin staff, teachers and TAs who are already really busy.

  • All information and photographs are password protected and GDPR compliant through specialist software.

  • Within 14 days following the shoot, the parents will be given a special code to access a private online gallery where they can make any orders directly. It allows parents to buy high resolution and digital prints at affordable prices. There are no set packages.

  • I can offer the school / PTA a commission or I can give the school my time as a photographer for any marketing shots they might need.

  • The parents have LOVELY HAPPY OUTDOOR portraits of their children during their precious school years.

How it Works

What Happens on the Day

  • I will come to the school or nursery on the arranged date and get to work quickly and efficiently.

  • I will have someone with me (as approved by the setting prior to the shoot) to assist with the constant flow of children who are being photographed.

  • I will spend time with each child, taking a selection of photographs and ensuring they are happy and comfortable with the process.​​



  • The children will be given a code on the day of the shoot.   This code allows the parent / caregiver to access a private gallery.   (If the code gets lost I can provide a replacement straight away)

  • Once the gallery is accessed then parents can choose which image to buy and in what format they would like to purchase the image.  

  • Parents will be able to buy prints in different sizes and digital images.

  • The prints and digital images will be available for 14 days from placing the order.



'When Titch came to COG to photograph our children she was a pleasure to work with. The children she photographed ranged from to 2 to 5 years, some of whom have complex needs such as Autism or may lack confidence to be photographed, especially by somebody they don’t know. Titch was outstanding at working with both parents and children alike. She was sensitive to everybody’s needs, ensuring parents felt comfortable with what she was doing and that the children felt happy and reassured. She didn’t push anything that any child showed the slightest hint of being unhappy with and was pleased to take the time to ensure the children were relaxed in order to get the best out of the children and therefore the best shots. Titch was careful to choose the right area of our setting in which to photograph, assessing the light and the areas the children knew best and enjoyed to play. She experimented with taking photographs of them sitting on one of our wooden sculptures and also moving shots of them running through the Autumn leaves. The results were absolutely beautiful. We had many very happy parents who were thrilled with the photographs and our Team here at COG were moved by the beauty of Titch’s work. It can be challenging to capture such moments with a child who doesn’t always understand what you’re asking of them or feels uncomfortable in the situation. Titch was able to do this brilliantly while making the whole experience fun for the children."
