Why Invest in Custom Photography?
I have watched my children grow so quickly and feel a sense of urgency to record and capture as many memories as possible. When my second son was just a few months old, I was reminded of how quickly that newborn stage goes by. It can be hard to enjoy it like we want to with all the sleepless nights and days devoted completely to a tiny little person, but I found myself thinking that you will only get to experience it for yourself a few months out of your entire lifetime...and the same really goes for any part of your kids’ childhood. You will never regret making the investment to capture those precious moments and intricate details that will no doubt bring all of the memories and emotions you got to experience with that stage of life flooding back.

Most of Lost Adventurers Photography clients invest between £700-1500 on their portrait experience.
Financing is EASY! Simply put 30% down on any collection and we automatically bill your VISA, MASTERCARD, or account each month for a minimum of £100 on your choice of the 1st or 15th of each month. Once your collection is paid in full we will deliver your final product!
Due to the custom nature of our products, there are no refunds or exchanges on any purchases.
My goal is to provide you with the most beautiful portraits you have ever seen of yourself. Again, you ONLY buy what you LOVE. There is no obligation to purchase photographs and no minimum purchase amount. Lost Adventurers Photography also offers interest free financing on all collection purchases; with just 30% down and a minimum payment of £100 automatically withdrawn each month, your options for purchase are limitless.
For every photograph you purchase, Lost Adventurers Photography provide you with the corresponding digital file for your own personal use and to re-print as gift prints.

All sessions require a non-refundable session fee. To secure a spot on the Lost Adventurers Photography calendar, this fee is due in full at the time of the pre-session consultation, whether by phone, email or in person.

Where is your studio located?
MY IN-HOME STUDIO
I am based in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, UK and I shoot all of my newborn and baby sessions in the studio as well as have client consultations and ordering sessions. I capture every element of Family life from pregnancy, older babies, and children and family life beyond. My Studio is also a playroom so there is lots of toys for children to play with and to become relaxed in the environment.
How do I decide between a newborn portrait and lifestyle session?
For newborn portraits: If you love the look of the peaceful sleeping newborn against a plain backdrop … If you want “just one shot” of the three of you together … If you want a sibling image to hang on your wall … this is the session for you! Newborn portraits are baby as art, and family portraits are wall worthy. Newborn portraits take place in my home studio, where parents can relax while I am working with their little one. View the newborn portrait gallery
For a lifestyle session: If you want your home to feature in your images … If you want relaxed, casual images of you snuggling with your new baby … If you want your baby to wear his own clothes for his photos and don’t care for him to be posed … this is the session for you! A lifestyle session is focused on connections and home, featuring baby’s everyday environment for you to remember. Lifestyle sessions do work best in homes with lots of natural light, but beautiful images can be made in almost any setting. View the lifestyle newborn gallery
Do you offer newborn portraits in my home?
A studio setting allows me to have complete control over the light so that I can deliver the best quality images to you. Newborn portraits, particularly parent and family portraits, are best accomplished in a studio setting. While it requires more time commitment on your part to travel to me, the results are worth it!
I do offer one option for posed newborn portraits in the home: the Newborn Session, a luxury package that provides the complete newborn photography experience — posed newborn portraits of baby and lifestyle images of baby with parents and siblings.
How do you accept payment?
Payments may be made using cash, or major credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express), paypal or online payment. Payment plans are available.
When is payment due/when do I place my order?
The session balance based on your selected package will be invoiced and is due the day prior to your session. To purchase an album, orders may either be placed at the conclusion of your session (if you already know what products you would like to order — I will have samples available for you to look at) or at an in-person viewing and ordering session approximately 2 weeks after your session. You will have the opportunity to upgrade to the complete set of digital images through your proofing gallery, as well as order prints and canvas.
Do you select my included number of digital images or do I?
I select the images from your session that meet my artistic standards and edit those images for you to review. You will then select your digital images (the number varies based on which session or package you book) from your proof gallery. Typically there will be about twice the number of images promised for you to choose from. There will also be an option to upgrade to the full gallery for an additional fee if you decide that you’d like to have all the images in the proof gallery.
What is an album credit? Do I have to purchase an album?
An album credit is my gift to you — an incentive to purchase a beautiful, top-quality heirloom album to display your newborn images. It is entirely up to you whether or not to use the credit. You will be able to see and touch sample albums at your session to help you decide. If you elect not to use the credit, please note that it has no cash value and cannot be applied to your digital image purchase.
Do you sell gift prints?
I do offer gift prints (7×10 and smaller) and mounted prints suitable for framing. Your purchased digital images will be uploaded into an online gallery that is serviced by my professional print lab. This way I can make professional quality gift prints available to you at consumer prices. Your online gallery will allow you to share your purchased digital images with family and friends, who can also place print orders on their own. All prints ordered through the online gallery will be shipped directly to the buyer’s door. It’s fast and easy!
