Family & children photography

It is quite scary how quickly time passes. Suddenly you look at your babies and realise they aren't babies anymore!

Now it's time for that family portrait. The portrait will probably remain in the family forever. These sessions are all about having fun and my aim is to create beautiful photographs that you will love and treasure for years to come. I do everything possible to make the whole experience enjoyable for you from start to finish. Included in the session are portraits of the children on their own, as well as the “whole family” image.

My studio is on the small side, so for families of over 6 people I recommend an Outdoor Session.

FAQ

Here are the questions I get asked most often before booking. If you need more details or have a question I have not covered, then either email me here or ping me a private Facebook message here.

In my experience, as a family photographer, it's best for all not to wear the same type of clothes but to coordinate them. Having similar tones works best. Please try to avoid logos, numbers, cartoon characters, busy patterns, bright coloured clothes.

We are aiming for a coordinated pallet not the same, matching outfits.

Yes. Please feel free to bring along a second outfit with you. I recommend only one outfit change, especially with younger children.

Don't worry about that, I will guide you through the whole thing so you can relax and just have fun. If you have any suggestions of your own then let me know.

I do outdoor portraits for family groups larger than 5. I can do an outdoor session if you would prefer that to the studio.

There’s no perfect time for a family photoshoot, but I suggest you don’t put it off! It is very common for parents to miss out on capturing special moments with their family because they’ve waited too long for the perfect time, age, weight, etc.

No need for lots of notice for family portraits, just give me a call whenever you’re ready!

A non-refundable SESSION FEE of £25 is due on booking to secure your appointment. This DOES NOT include any prints nor digital images, which are charged individually.

The session fee is a creative one, which covers my time and talent to shoot and create professional images that you will treasure forever, and guarantees your appointment. It also covers acquisition, full use, and maintenance of quality studio props and my time to select and perfect your images for viewing.

Yes, one digital package needs to be purchased.

After your photoshoot, your photographs will be edited to my highest standards before being presented to you. This process typically takes two weeks, however it may take a little longer during busy periods. As soon as your photographs are ready, you’ll be invited back for your personal view and order session, where you’ll be able to view your photographs and choose the packages and products that you would like to purchase.

Please note that some mini sessions and event photography packages may not include a personal view and order session; in these cases you will be provided with an online gallery from which to download your photographs.

The first thing to do is get in touch! Send me a message via my contact form and I’ll get back to you at a time that suits you. We’ll have a quick chat so that I can find out a bit more about you and the style of photographs that you’re drawn to, then I can tailor your session accordingly. This consultation is also a great opportunity for you to get a feel for who I am and hopefully relax a little about what’s to come.

Providing you’re happy to go forwards, I’ll follow up our call with details of how to pay your £25 deposit, as well as a standard contract that explains all the relevant terms and conditions. Please note that your booking will not be confirmed until your deposit has been paid and the contract signed. After booking, you will receive a confirmation email and a reminder closer to your appointment time.

I require 48 hours’ notice when cancelling or re-scheduling. No guarantee can be given that a specific new slot will be available nor provided.
