What are Low Tide Minis?

Low Tide Minis are 40minute documentary photo sessions with your family at a beach of your choice*. You’ll receive 10 high-res photos as a download via your own online photo gallery.

These mini sessions are the most affordable way to work with me and get some beautiful, honest and authentic family photos that will capture the unique connections you have with each other.

The times below have been chosen to catch the lowest tide of the day. Since it usually takes a couple of hours for the tide to fully come or go, there is some wiggle room if necessary. Please speak to me if you’d like to adjust the timing to suit your schedule.

*Sessions take place on a beach between Brighton and Worthing. You can choose which beach is most convenient for you or let me make a suggestion.

To book your session, just choose the date and time that suits you best and follow the instructions.

Please be aware that the tides are higher during the first few sessions and drop to a very low point towards the end of the week.
The low tides are the highest at 1.9m on Sunday 25/10 and drop down to 0.4m on Sunday 01/11.

Wait, I've got some questions...

What if it rains?

Well, the weather isn’t particularly predictable in England, is it? That’s ok. As we all know, there’s no bad weather, just bad clothing. If it gets a bit wet, make sure you put on your wellies and wear appropriate clothing. Since the session is happening on the beach, water splashes are inevitable anyway so we should be fine with a bit of rain.

If it however happens to properly chuck down and there’s no chance of us to work with it, we will find an alternative date that suits both sides. I will be in touch 24hours before your session to check in with you should the weather look to be horrendous.

What if one of us gets sick?

Yes, that’s always a worry with kids, isn’t it? If any of you has any sign of sickness, please let me know asap so we can arrange an alternative date. During times of a pandemic, we will not risk the chance of exposing anybody to a nasty virus.
Same goes for me – should I show any symptoms of Covid or a cold, I will let you know as soon as possible to arrange a new session date.

Whats’ going to happen during the session? What kind of photos are we getting?

Your mini photo session will be a documentary session where I’ll capture you and your family having fun on the beach during low tide. That’s why the times for those session has been set to what they are. The times for the individual session is timed to catch the lowest possible tide at that day.

You can bring toys to play at the beach or just l;et your kids run around the sand and the shallow water and I’ll document you having fun together. The aim of the session is to get some natural shots of you hanging out during low tide which I think is the most amazing time on the beach.

Can we get a couple of posed family portraits too?

While my style is usually purely documentary, I can of course grab a few photos for you all together looking at the camera. That can happen during the first 10mins of your session and after that, you’ll be able to let the kids go wild and enjoy the low tide.

Where exactly will the sessions happen?

Your session will happen on a beach somewhere between Brighton and Goring, depending on what’s most convenient to you. I can suggest a beach but am happy to go with your preference.

What’s included in the price?

The price includes your 40min session and 10 high-res photos to download from an online gallery. You will be able to purchase more images from your gallery as well as products like prints, wall art or albums if you wish.

How much will the additional images cost if I want more than 10 photos?

Additional digital downloads will be available for £20 per image.

Small prints start as low as £1.50.
Framed prints start form £52.

Can we bring our grandparents, cousins and pets along?

You can bring as many people as you want. And their dogs too. But please be aware that the session will only last about 40mins and you’ll receive 10 high-res photos to download from an online gallery. If you want more than 10 photos, you’ll have the opportunity to buy them individually after you’ve seen them.
