Your guide to your family session

Because time flies…

Your story starts here

I’d like you to get hold of your story and hold it tight. Because those kids of yours, they grow fast. One day they’re tiny and fragile, barely fitting in their car seat and the next, they just want to hang out with their friends and you’ve turned into a ‘taxi mum’. And for every stage of their life, there is a story to tell. That story will evolve but it will still be yours and only yours. Each family has its own way of sharing and loving and that’s what I’d love to capture for you. So you always keep a sweet memory of the rollercoaster that is childhood.

Before your session

We will always plan a pre-session consultation over the phone ahead of your photoshoot to discuss the details but it’s also a great opportunity for me to know more about your family, the things you like doing with your children so we all feel confortable on the day.

The session

Whether we’re doing family, newborn or maternity photos, we’ll gently ease into your photoshoot and I’ll follow the flow of your family: the giggles, the messing around, the chitchat and of course, the cuddles. For a newborn session, we’ll follow your baby’s pace for a calm and gentle session. For a maternity session, we will get lovely portraits of you and your bump.

Session fee
A session fee is required to secure your booking:


The photo session will last approximately 1.5-2 hours (2-3 hours for a newborn photoshoot). That should be plenty of time for me to get lots of gorgeous photos of your family.

This only include the time I will spend with you and your family as well as my talent.
The session fee does not include any digital files or products.

In order to secure your session date, book now to avoid disappointment.

What happens after the session?

Within 3 weeks after your session, I will select the best photos of your family session and enhance and apply some light retouching of the selected images. I will then send you a link to your gallery to view your very own photos. This will be your opportunity to decide the photos you want and the products that will make you happy to have in your home. You’ll have the choice between digital images, photo albums and fine-art prints.


You will first discover your personal photos in the password-protected online gallery I will share with you. If you want to keep high resolution digital images you will have the choice to purchase one of the following options:

  • All digital images* (minimum 40 photos) = £665** 
    [**When purchasing the ‘All digitals’ option, you’ll receive 5 fine-art prints 6x4 with a ‘a la carte’ value of £58.00 as a complimentary offer.]

  • 20 digital images = £430

  • 10 digital images = £260

Note: *If you purchase the ‘All digital images’ option at the time of booking your session, I offer a 50% discount off the session fee.


Don't let your family photos stay hidden... they are precious memories that deserve to be enjoyed as a family now and for years to come, when your children have all grown up. There is no better feeling than touching and flicking through your own photo album or individual fine art prints. I will be in charge of the artistic lay-out (with your collaboration for the choice of the photos) so you don't have to worry about it.

What mums said….

The photos are so lovely –
some of them actually made me cry.
— Jess (maternity & newborn sessions)
I loved how when Marion walked in the girls warmed to her immediately.
She bent down to their level to say hi and she made them feel so comfortable in her presence before the camera came out.
— Aisling (family session)
I’m so gobsmacked at what a good eye you have and the poetry in what you see.
— Emma (family session)

A little bit about me

Family photographer Marion Pelletant of Marion & You Photography

I’m Marion, photographer and mum of a 4-year-old boy. I’m originally from France but I made London my home 13 years ago. I still miss French lovely bread and cheese (and cakes!) but I got used to the British food habits, swapping for sliced bread and Cheddar cheese ;-).
My previous career was in advertising, managing clients of big car brands. Now I’m managing family and work but I always try to fit in some quality time with my husband and son. You’ll often find us in a National Trust place somewhere in Kent.
