Time flies and before you know it your babies will have grown up and moved on to pastures new. Before that happens I would like to help you to capture photographs of your family with personality and connection that you will treasure forever. What better way to do this than to get outside into nature and have some family fun! Why bother booking a Professional Photographer when you can take your own family photos? Because it is so important for you to be included in your family images. Your children will appreciate photos of you when they are older as much you appreciate photos of them when they are younger. As your family portrait photographer I will provide you with a gallery of images that are a true reflection of your family as it is now.
If you are an active family or you feel your children would be more comfortable with a relaxed candid outdoor family photo shoot there are plenty of beautiful locations in the countryside surrounding the studio which are included in your session fee. Alternatively you may have a location that has a particular family tie or memory. In which case please give me a call to discuss. Please note there is a location fee for shoots over 3 miles away from the studio, determined by distance and any entrance fees or permits required.
I also offer studio family photo shoots, please click here for details.
Family location photography shoots are £75 which includes your pre-session consultation, (either in studio or over the phone) exclusive shooting time; use of outfits and/or styling advice; full editing of images and a private studio viewing/ordering session. Payment is required to confirm your booking.
Product prices start at £245 for Wall Art and £425 for USB/Print Boxes. Most Clients choose one of my discounted Wall Art & USB collections and spend between £500 to £1,500.
As part of my booking process I will ask some questions about your family and your requirements. Would you like a particular focus on images of the whole family as you are the one always behind the camera? Would you prefer a session just for the children? Do you want a mixture of both? Do you have a dog/s or other pets you would like to include in the shoot? If your children are school age I do offer late afternoon sessions on a Thursday (daylight dependant!) and occasional Saturday afternoon sessions. These sessions are in high demand so please book early if you require your photographs for a particular date.
My family location photography shoots are very relaxed and last about 1 hour, although this is a little flexible if we are on a roll! I will take a few minutes at the beginning of the session to get to know everyone and get a feeling of how the session is going to flow. Golden hour provides the most beautiful light for outdoor photo shoots and if possible I will try to arrange your photo shoot for this time of day. However this isn’t always possible (especially for toddlers in the height of summer when golden hour is 9pm!) and so I will then offer you a morning or afternoon photo shoot. Midday is usually the worst time of day for an outdoor photography shoot but if we can find a shady location I can still capture some great images if that is the only time of day available to us!
What shall I wear?…
Once you have booked I will send you a style guide and I will be on hand to provide guidance on outfit choices if required. I offer guidance throughout the entire process from beginnning to end.
