Mini Shoots

Are they suitable for me?

Mini shoots are the perfect photo opportunity if you want to refresh the photos on your wall, only have time to have a quicker shoot or have a limited budget for professional photos. They also make the most thoughtful gift for a family member or friend.

Mini shoots run differently to family shoots. The location and dates are specified  and you have a half hour slot that needs to be booked in advance. The prices are only sustainable for me because I stay put in one place and have people come to me.

I offer 4 seasonal mini shoots throughout the year:

Spring Mini Shoots

In the Spring I run bluebell mini shoots which take place in the stunning bluebell blanket that erupts in Micheldever Woods (just outside Winchester).

We go for walks, take a blanket and chill out, pick bluebells and climb on logs. They are great fun and incredibly popular. People come from far and wide to visit these bluebells so it is important to book in advance.

As a general rule, the bluebells tend to be at their best around the last week of April and the first week of July, although this is obviously very dependent on the weather.

Summer Mini Shoots

These shoots take place at a lavender farm called The Lavender Fields just outside of Alton. This is a beautiful family-run lavender farm that sells all manner of goodies as well! It needs to be booked in advance and I have always been fortunate enough to have the lavender and the wildflower patches to myself during shoots.

As with the Bluebells, the lavender relies very heavily on the weather, but generally is at its best in mid-July.

Autumn Mini Shoots

In the Autumn I offer autumnal colour shoots which inevitably involve embracing all the spectacular colours of the autumn leaves.

The location is dependent on the weather and where the best colours are. I make a final decision the week before depending on the best colours and the most variety of images I can offer at one location.

We go for walks, climb trees throw leaves and generally have a lot of fun!

Christmas Mini Shoots

In Winter I offer a specific Christmas scene which includes decorations, cuddly toys and fake snow! The fake snow is an absolute winner with children of all ages and is a lot of fun!

This mini shoot is ideal if you want beautiful festive photos for Christmas cards or Christmas presents.

I offer it as early as November so that there is enough for processing and you to turn the images into beautiful cards or presents all in time for Christmas.


The Christmas mini shoot is currently available for £75 which includes the session fee as well as 5 images to download at high resolution. The entire album can be purchased for £50.


Mini shoots cost £100, which is inclusive of the session fee as well as 3 images to download at high resolution. If you are interested in purchasing more images, the entire album can be purchased for £75.

All images will be presented in an online gallery. Once you have made your choices, I  will provide you with a download PIN and removed the watermarks. They will then be yours to enjoy!

Everyone loves the photos that you have taken of our little girl in playing amongst the bluebells. They capture her sense of fun and her spirit which would not be seen in a traditional style photo. She loved her morning out playing in the woods and it never felt like a chore or staged. Wonderfully enjoyable and natural. Thank you. We loved our bluebell minshoot. Nic and Glen Barber

What a fantastic experience! Caroline helped us all to feel relaxed and just have fun. The children loved every second of it.

Thank you Caroline. we loved the Autumn shoot in the leaves. Sophie Pennington

I was lucky enough to win a photo shoot competition on Caroline’s Facebook page earlier in the year.

We had never had any family photos done professionally before. I needed purple and green pictures to fit in with the colour theme in our lounge, hence waiting for the lavender photo shoot season.

Caroline made us feel at ease and made the shoot fun for our daughter. The photos were edited and emailed to us very quickly and they look fantastic. I bought the whole selection of digital photos, as I wouldn’t have been able to choose just 3. Our friends and family were very impressed with the photos, too. Thank you, Caroline! Rosie Matthews

Thank you so much for the absolutely amazing pictures that you took of me and my daughters. They were perfect – natural and fresh, just what I was looking for!! We all enjoyed both the summer photo shoot and the lavender shoots immensely and I was particularly impressed by your relentless ability to encourage the children to be themselves and have fun allowing the wonderfully natural shots to be taken. I cannot recommend you enough. Suzanne Nicolson

Thank you so much for the photos – there are so many really lovely ones! It was lovely to meet you Sophie really enjoyed her morning too. She’ll be very excited to see the photos. Emily Green

Caroline took absolutely beautiful photos of our family during a completely relaxed and stress free shoot. She was fantastic with both our children and allowed them to do their own thing without barking endless instructions at them. I can’t recommend her enough. Emma and Mark Sadler

Caroline is fantastic – we had so much fun with her in the bluebells that my twin daughters didn’t want to go home!

Our shoot with Caroline was very relaxed and done at my girls’ pace; she let them explore the woodland and bluebells, getting used to their surroundings all while capturing some fantastically natural photographs.

We also had a selection of more posed photographs, once my girls had got used to the camera (which didn’t take long with Caroline making everything fun – she has a fantastic energy and way with children).

During discussions with Caroline, she learned that my girls loved climbing trees so even tried to incorporate that into our shoot. They never felt under pressure to perform and thoroughly enjoyed playing amongst the flowers.

When we got home, one of my girls found their camera and they role-played having a photoshoot with Caroline for quite some time which meant that I could enjoy a hot cuppa! I didn’t have to wait too long to be able to see the finished photographs and it was impossible to choose a favourite so I ended up buying them all because they were all so wonderful.

We will definitely be going to Caroline for future shoots – and encouraging our friends to do the same! Becky Morris

Really great photo shoot. Caroline was amazing and took photos of a 4 year old and mad Labrador in her stride and got some amazing pictures. They are so wonderful! Thank you is simply not enough!

Would definitely recommended and we will definitely be booking in the future. Abbie and Rick Longworth
