Family Portrait Photography2019-03-22T15:26:13+01:00

Family photography probably has something of an outdated reputation as it tends to conjure memories of studios where you posed rictus-grinned in front of a backdrop featuring a picture of bookshelves (next time I’m at my parent’s house, I will no doubt pause on the stairs to admire a picture of all of us doing exactly that).  But things have moved on a bit since then, and now portrait photography is a much more relaxed and fun affair.    Not a library backdrop in sight. I promise.

You can use your portrait session for whatever you like – to get pictures of  you as a couple, as a family, of just the kids, literally whatever (within the limits of my studio size – it’s suitable for groups of three adults and three small children – if your group is larger than that, just get in touch so we can talk over your options).  You can mix and match groups in your session so, for example if you come as a couple with two kids, you can use your photo shoot to get pictures of you as a family, as a couple, of the kids together and separately.  In terms of style, my studio is very versatile so we can work with most styles but if you have really specific ideas then it’s a good idea to chat them over with me ahead of time to make sure I have everything ready (you can point me to a Pinterest board if you’d like to).

What does a Portrait Photo Shoot Cost?

Every portrait session includes your three favourite digital images to download, print and share as much as you would like to.  Sessions also access to my props and accessories and, most importantly, include up to an hour of studio time to allow us plenty of time to relax, have fun and keep the session completely stress free.  A photo shoot costs £95.

How Does a Session Work?

When you book a session, you have the studio for an hour so we have plenty of time to get to know each other and try some different ideas at a relaxed pace.  It also gives us time to experiment with styles so I’d recommend you bring along a few different outfits plus of course any props and accessories that you would like to include in your session to personalise it further.

At the start of the session, we take some time to chat so I can understand what you would like to get out of your time in the studio.  Then I gently direct you through the session – you don’t need to have had any experience in a photo studio before.  We work through different ideas, props and backdrops (not library) until we are done.  Then you go home, relax and wait for a bit.

How Do we View and Order Images?

About two weeks after your session, you will receive a password and link to your private online gallery.  All you need to do is enter this password into the page at the link and you will be able to see all of your shiny new photos.

Yes of course, you can order more digital images, prints and canvases directly from your gallery. There’s no viewing meeting or sales session to attend.   You can see how much they all cost by clicking on this link.

No Sales Appointments 

As with all of my photography, there’s no sales or viewing session to attend.  You have enough on your hands with your new arrival so you simply view and order your images from the comfort of your private online gallery where you are welcome to purchase additional prints, digital images or canvases if you would like to.
