Mother’s Day Mini Sessions

Come and celebrate you and the wonder that is motherhood with some amazing pictures and memories!

Hi I’m so glad you’re here! Life is full-on busy and you rarely have time to yourself, so here’s a massive high five for taking a minute to think about doing something nice for you!

You do SO much and love your kids with literally everything you have so you deserve to be CELEBRATED! I mean, how often do you get to be in your family photos? If you are like me, it’s almost never so we need to do something about that!

20 minute mini session in The Vines Park, Rochester 

Your favourite 3 digital images (15 to choose from*)

*more can be purchased if you wish


What to expect

Let’s take some time out for a fun activity for you where you will not only have a great time, but will have pictures to bring out that warm fuzzy feeling (even when you’re knackered and just wanting to just lay on the sofa for a week) and show those gorgeous, hilarious, wonderful kids just how much they mean to you too.

I want you to walk into your home and see you in that frame with your kids. I want you to feel uncontainable joy and love when you look at these pictures and see your AMAZING family. To stop and think ‘I did that!’ 

These are fun 20 minutes sessions at The Vines park in Rochester, where you get to cuddle/kiss/spin/mess around for a bit. I’ll gently guide you through various natural looking poses to get you started so no need to worry about feeling awkward.

After the shoot I will edit your pictures and send you a gallery of 15 images where you can select your 3 included images. If you feel you can’t possibly live without more of them because you all look so fab and joyful then you are more than welcome to purchase more – but there’s totally no obligation.

My sessions are very relaxed and fun and this is a safe space for you to be yourself and feel good! This is about YOU, I got you Mama x

There are limited slots, so please book before they go!

“Vickie captured special moments with my son and the pictures were beyond my expectations. I felt relaxed and she was very understanding whenever he just wanted to play or take a little break. I’m looking forward to my next shoot!”

Hi Lovely!


I’m Vickie, a family photographer for big-hearted families based in Rochester, Kent. I totally live for connections and the realness of the everyday.

As a mum of 2 (Nia 9 and Eli 5) not much phases me and I wholeheartedly welcome you all to be yourself when working with me. Silly faces, laughter, mess, toilet humour and cuddles are all welcomed and encouraged by me! Oh, and I’m pretty sure I have the Spiderman hands nailed and know nearly all Disney songs (and no I don’t listen to the Wish soundtrack when I’m by myself. Much.)


What if I'm uncomfortable in front of a camera?

Almost everyone I photograph feels this way or at least to some degree. I feel the same way! My shoots are relaxed, and I encourage you to do whatever feels comfortable to you. And I’m here to guide you and make sure you have fun!

I'm not sure 20 mins is long enough, will the pictures all look similar?

It’s amazing how much we can do in 20 minutes!  We will work through different natural poses and I’ll take candid ones too, so you will end up with a good variety to choose from.

What if my child won't co-operate?

I’m a mum myself and understand that some days kids just don’t want to do the things! So please don’t worry, we’ll figure it out. I suggest talking to them about it beforehand (if old enough to understand) to get them excited about it, and maybe let hem help pick out an outfit for it. I encourage families to be themselves because that’s whats unique and wondeful about you. So if your child will only have their picture taken in their superhero outfit – why not embrace that? I will also have some bubbles on hand, but perhaps bring a favourite toy you can keep out of sight unless needed?

Can I purchase other pictures from my gallery at a later date?

I created these mini sessions so that people with a variety of budgets can access them. Your gallery will be up for 7 days for you to choose your images. If it’s not in your budget right now to purchase extra images or you don’t want to, that’s okay (you are welcome to club together with other family members who may enjoy them too). This is why I include 3 images in the price so that everyone is guaranteed 3 gorgeous images from their experience!
