Home-Start is one of the leading family support charities in the UK. They train volunteers who visit families with young children in their homes, offering parent-to-parent support when it is needed the most, because childhood won’t wait. Their volunteers are non-judgemental, giving families compassionate and confidential support. The earliest years make the biggest impact and Home-Start makes sure those years count, so that no child’s future is limited.
I have volunteered for Home-Start in various parts of the country for the last eight years and been placed with 3 different families. I have seen first hand the difference that volunteers make to families and their children.
‘My parents haven’t been involved in the way my volunteer was. I wasn’t used to people being interested in what I was doing or bearing problems with me. I could be really honest about bad days and worries. I always felt better after I had seen her.’ (Supported mum)
‘If it wasn't for Home-Start, I would not have the confidence to go for a job, which will be a big life changer for me and my children.’ (Supported mum)
This is a completely bespoke portraiture experience at a location in The Cotswold Region that is personal and unique to you, be that a local park, place of interest or even just at your house.
These shoots are tailored just for you and your family, with either a call or online consultation beforehand to discuss any specific requirements you might need from the shoot.
The shoot lasts for an hour, is great fun and a lovely experience for all of the family. A week later you will be invited back to Saraya's studio in Charlton Kings to view a selection of images from your shoot and to choose some of your favourite images to display in your home.
Prices for additional prints start at £95 for a 10x8 archival print, and framed images start at £195.
Digital and print packages are also available starting at £350.
Please note that your entire donation to Homestart Cotswolds will be received by them to continue the important work that they do in your community.
On receipt of your application Saraya will be in touch to discuss your shoot and arrange a suitable time and venue and you will be given a Home-Start Cotswolds donation link.
Saraya knows how to work with babies! She was brilliant! I would highly recommend her! It was a very nice experience for us. Thanks Saraya x
Fantastic photographer! My children loved her & she got amazing shots that everyone comments on. Would use time & time again! X
What can I say other than what stunningly beautiful photos Saraya took of my little girl. Very talented photographer and a lovely lady.
Saraya has taken pictures of my daughter at different ages. She captures her spirit and her style every time, she is a great photographer and she is great with the people she takes pictures of. The hardest part is what pictures to choose after!
Saraya is brilliant- kids love her!
