Mother’s day 2015 charity event – Pop up portrait studio in Gidea Park

Mar 3, 2015 | Other work

So ever since my first Mother’s day two years ago, and the overwhelming response to my Mother’s day blog post and my call to all mums to ‘put themselves in the picture’ I decided that I would make Mother’s Day weekend the time for my annual charity event.

This year’s event will be raising funds for NSPCC.

Last year I hosted a sell out Mother’s Day event in Zürich. We had a lot of fun and created some beautiful portraits. This year will be my first year in Gidea Park. I’ve joined forces with, Mark Belda at The Picture Frame Gallery, to host a pop up studio in his shop.

When: Saturday, 14 March 2015 |15 minute time slots available from 10:30-16:00

Where: The Picture Frame Gallery | 142 Main Road, Gidea Park, RM2 5EU (map)

Cost: £10 minimum donation to NSPCC

What’s Included: I will have a shooting area set up and will pose you with your children.  Following the photoshoot, a photographer’s choice printed and matted photo will be sent via post to your home address.

Who is welcome: Any mum with her children of any age. (Please note the photography space is limited and so large/extended family images are not possible)

How to book: Email me at to agree your timeslot. I will then send you a link to the event’s just giving page to make your donation.

Where does my money go: All the costs of the event are being covered by the sponsoring businesses. I am giving my time for free and covering the costs of the photographic prints and postage. The Picture Frame Gallery is kindly letting us use the space for free. Just Giving is being used to ensure absolute transparency about where your donation is going. It also gives NSPCC the added benefit of collecting your hard earned cash back from the tax man- BONUS!

We hope you feel this is a great opportunity to raise money for a great charity, as well as get a portrait at a HUGE reduction on my usual prices.

Cancellation Policy: Given this is a charity event and donations are being made via just giving, should you not be able to attend, refunds will not be available. You may privately arrange to pass  your time slot to another mum. In this scenario, please email me with their details to
