                    Toddler 1 – 4 years

                    sisters

                    A mind of their own

                    Your little angel is now just beginning to walk and say their first words. Once they start to walk the fun begins; they start to develop a unique personality of their own.

                    A fabulous time when each day brings a new surprise as they grow. 

                    This is an important point in their lives and before you know it they'll be off to school.  Make sure you capture those moments forever with a Hoss portrait.

                    The School Years

                    Dreams can come true

                    So they're off to school already. From Nursery to University, these formative years are a huge part of your child's life, where they'll meet new people, make lifelong friends, find their first love, or even meet their future husband or wife.

                    Each stage is different as they discover who they are; what they want to do in life; and where they will eventually settle.

                    Our School Years portrait sessions give you the opportunity of an annual portrait session to capture those vital stages of their changing lives.


                    Pre-School or Nursery

                    Away from Mum and Dad

                    The first time you leave them at pre-school or nursery is a scary experience.  It's the first time they'll be interacting with other children and adults without you there to guide them - or even see how they're getting on. 

                    They'll learn how to share and fit in with others; they'll discover dinosaurs and fairies; they'll write their name for the first time; and bring home their first painting.  It's a wonderful age of discovery.

                    Primary School

                    Their first big school

                    Big school seems to come so quickly.  It's probably the first time they've been away all day, every day. They'll probably be in their first school uniform, looking so grown up. 

                    Going to school is both scary and exciting; a challenge for both the children and the parents.

                    They will find new friends, and new interests; every day is thrilling as they discover new and wondrous things.

                    Junior School

                    Getting independant

                    Onwards and upwards.  By now they will have established themselves amongst their peers, beginning to understand their own strengths and weaknesses.  Their rate of progress is astounding and it will soon be time to prepare for moving up to a new school.

                    Senior School

                    Mini Adults

                    They've arrived at senior school; a whole new experience for them with many more children and teachers; timetables to negotiate; and learning to operate with less supervision.  This new found independence means that they will begin to cut themselves loose from you, taking on new activities and interests - sport, ballet, riding, music - the possibilities are endless.

                    College or University

                    The world beckons

                    They've made it through school and the exams are over. They're now heading off to college or university, probably living away from home for the first time.  Their lives are moving towards the great unknown, with boundless exciting opportunities to be explored.   Your life will change beyond all recognition as you realise that your baby has grown into a strong, independent  young adult.

                    University – Graduations

                    Study can be fun

                    Three or more years of study.  Three or more years of beans on toast, pot noodle and peanut butter sandwiches.  Three or more years of juggling their overdraft with loans from the bank of Mum and Dad.

                    But they made it.  And this is probably one of your proudest moments, as you watch all their hard work pay dividends.  They've graduated!
