ABOUT THESE SESSIONS
ABOUT CHILD & FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY
Your family photo shoot with us will be a relaxed and natural affair, resulting in photos which will authentically capture your family int their natural state. I don't do traditional posing as i find it too awkward for family photographs, rather I give some direction to ensure you are in the most flattering light and position. I offer two types of Child & Family sessions, traditional studio sessions and mini family sessions.
My family sessions are a little unique in that we will take some traditional portraits in the studio and then venture to the parkland across the road and photograph you and your family being just that, a family. Captured life as it happens. So come rain or shine you will have a lovely gallery to cherish! If its raining bring wellies and prepare for your little ones to have lots of puddle fun, Umbrellas will be provided. If its glorious weather, there is plenty of shade to get stunning portraits
Studio dresses and outfits from babies (unisex) and girls up to 7 years can be provided.
Men and boys 1 year plus will need to bring something.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER A SESSION
After your session you are invited to book in a view and order session up in the client area on the website. I ask that you leave at least a week between your sessions and no more than a month.
WHAT HAPPENS AT A VIEW AND ORDER SESSION
You are welcomed into the studio office to enjoy watching up to 30-75 images of your beautiful little one. I will help you decide your final images based upon your budget and what you would like as an outcome i.e. what sort of people are you, are you simplistic lovers and want a piece of wall art and the rest of your chosen images as little keepsakes on a USB / USB Print box or are you the Album for every member of the family type. There is no right or wrong and I pride myself on helping my clients get the most out of their gallery for your budget be it a small one to a no expenses spared.
WHEN SHOULD YOU BOOK
For studio sessions all year round! For location sessions, all year round is fine but completely dependant upon the type of imagery your would like. If you are outdoorsy people you may well want to capture that element of your family and winter coat, boots and red cheeks may be exactly what you would like, if it snows even better! Autumn is a stunning colour for your photographs and can still be warm enough early on toot need to be fully wrapped up, Spring obviously runs the risk of rain, but I absolute love making the most of a rainy day, the moody skies are beautiful and actually make for really nice lighting as it softens the light. Summertime is all about beautiful sunsets and beautiful flourishing backdrops. So is best to have little think and chose your month accordingly.
WHY CHOOSE ME
I love family sessions, taking time to bring out the different dimensions of a family and capturing the love you have for each other, even if it takes a while to show up :) I keep my setup to a minimum for family sessions as its all about you all and not about props, for location sessions I will take you on a woodland walk, a meander around local castle grounds or some other local beauty spots.
