This family came to visit my studio in East Grinstead for some family portrait photos recently. Actually they had been bought the session by a very proud grandmother who was keen to capture some pictures of them together with their new baby and little Chloe certainly didn’t disappoint. She was full of smiles for the camera both for the photos on her own and when she was getting cuddles from her mum and dad.
I try to ensure that you get the maximum value from your photo session so we always mix and match different groupings. For example, in this session Chloe on her own, with her mum, with her dad and everyone together. There’s even time for an outfit change if you would like to include one.
Family portrait photos make a great gift, and are definitely something to bear in mind when you are planning your Christmas shopping. Mums, dads, nans and granddads are sure to be delighted with pictures and they are such a lovely and personal gift to give. They also offer the added advantage of being able to tick a number of Christmas presents off your list without once heading near to the festive high street hassle!
Alternatively, if you know someone who would love a family portrait photo shoot, you can always choose to give them one in the form of a gift certificate. You can choose from the standard family portrait package which includes their five favourite images from their session that they can download, print and share as much as they would like (these cost £95) or you can tailor-make your own package to include various digital, print or canvas options.
