What clients say about Meadow Lullabies


Elizabeth Wilke

James was friendly and easy to work with from the first enquiry to the delivery of the finished photos. He captured really lovely photos of my family in his signature outdoor portrait style which emphasizes natural interpersonal interactions against gorgeous natural light and backdrops. He came prepared especially to engage my 6 month old baby for the photos and was very patient when the baby needed to pause. The way his package is structured is different from other studios and made a lot of sense for us – no prints but loads of retouched soft copies. As a result we have more saved photos from his session than from any other studio we’ve engaged in the past and can print at our own time and for our own purpose. We will treasure his photos as family keepsakes for years to come.

James is highly professional and genuinely cares about the high-quality output as well as the comfort of his clients. We had a great experience with him while doing 1-year old photo shoot for our baby. He never rushed it during the session and allowed us to be ourselves which really helped the baby as well. We had an issue with our transport arrangements and he was so kind enough to help us to figure it out and stayed with us very late until we have a way back home.

We always like his rustic style of photographs and the output was beyond our expectations. We got our photos quite fast too!

We will definitely get his service for any upcoming photo shoot and would recommend him to anyone who is looking for the best without a doubt.

We had a wonderful experience of a family outdoor photoshoot with James. He is very skilled, captures natural and genuine moments of us with our 4-year-old. Highly recommended!


Where do you recommend our family photography session to take place?

Any nature park such as Botanical gardens or even that nice patch of grass field surrounded by tall trees near your home works. Kids are also more likely to have fun as they freely roam about in a non-restrictive environment and I am sure you will want those moments captured in your photos.

What will my outdoor session be like?

I usually suggest my clients to plan some activities so that they can have fun and interact with their kids in an authentic way during the session. For me to produce quality images, it will be great if you are spontaneous and go with the flow.
I prefer keeping things real, while I will direct a few poses for portraits oriented shots, the session centers around the interactions between family members with me adopting a photojournalistic approach snapping to my heart’s content without precise direction. During the session, I may talk and play with your kid(s) a bit. They will prance around, throw a fit or just be nonchalant, but you can be sure that moments of such will all be captured and you’ll never know they might just become your favorite photos.

Is my kid too young to be photographed outdoor?

The youngest kid I have photographed is around 10 months old in an outdoor setting. As you would expect, your child will likely to be all over the place while they curiously explore their surroundings and these are exactly what we want to document. After all, at this age, they aren’t supposed to sit still and face the camera all day long!

What type of outfit should I put on?

Simple and casual clothing that you’re comfortable in. ‘Earthy’ colors such as brown, khaki, beige, white, light pink works best against nature settings. Plain white top and denim jeans are a popular choice too. Try to avoid apparels with heavy patterns or design prints; lesser distracting elements means more focus on just you and your family.

Why take it outdoors?

You can have the most elaborate indoor lighting setup but in my opinion, nothing really quite beat a backdrop of lush greeneries embraced by natural light. Your kid(s) will more likely enjoy being in outdoors too. Ultimately, what you can’t replicate in an indoor environment are the interactions you have with them in an outdoor setting.

What should I prepare for the shoot?

Here are some items to consider:

  1. some toys (preferably one that moves and generates sound/ music) to serve as ‘baits’ for your kid(s)
  2. extra clothing helps too in the event of humid or rainy
  3. some snacks and lots of fluids
  4. not an item but nevertheless, the most important thing in the list – A happy, light-hearted and playful mood. 🙂

A brown fabric mat, wet wipes and portable fans will be provided.

Can I bring my pets along?

Yes! Pets are certainly welcome, although you may want to limit to 2 pets for larger breeds.

Is there a prime age for kids to be photographed in your lifestyle session?

Having photographed children of various ages from toddlers to teenagers,  I find that kids below 12 years old don’t hold back when it comes to enjoying themselves making them great subjects for lifestyle family photography due to their active and playful demeanor!

Are multiple families suited for your lifestyle shoot?

Designed for individual families, the lifestyle photo shoot works best when the focus is placed on a single household. Multiple families require a significantly more amount of session time and inevitably a slight change of approach.

What is the best timing for the shoot?

The preferred timings should either be in the morning ending before 9:30 am where you’ll be embraced by the beautiful sunrays while avoiding the harsh sunlight or in the evening around 5 pm for the gorgeous golden sunset hour.

Other studios require purchasing of hi-res digital copies separately, why does your package include that many retouched hi-res digital soft copies?

By consistently seeking ways to streamline our work process and resources without compromising on quality, we are able to fork up more time for each assignment.  It’s not just about saving our clients some cost but more importantly to avoid good photos going to waste if they weren’t being selected for cost reasons.

What is the plan for bad weather?

For outdoor sessions, the shoot shall be rescheduled unless both parties are fine with shifting it to another timing within the same day. If it rains in the middle of the session, we will cease the shoot and seek shelter then wait for the rain to stop before continuing.
