Family Photography Shoots are a wonderful way to capture natural interactions and emotions in a location that suits you. Natural, full of happiness, and timeless.
Natural emotions in natural environments.
Time for you to ask any questions you might have to ensure you feel ready for a fun and rewarding photo shoot.
A 2-hour photo shoot at our pre-arranged location. Session fee applies.
A complementary digital image is part of the session fee but now is time for you to decide on your image and product packages.
I love working outside in natural light.
Children running freely and interacting with nature.
Home and studio shoots also available for families.
I recommend a number of outdoor locations across London that I have used and I know that work beautifully for family photo shoots. The home or studio setting is a wonderful alternative for newborns.
Paid at time of booking and includes the 2-hour photo shoot and one free digital image. Digital & print packages, plus optional extras, available in addition.
This is something we can discuss as it really depends on what you want from your photo shoot, and sometimes a combination of both outdoor and indoor locations can work. Being outdoors provides natural light, space for the children/family/couples to feel relaxed, and free to roam around interacting with nature; perfect for most photo shoots.
If you would like a photo shoot in the home then we can discuss your requirements and the best time of day depending on when and where your house gets the best natural light.
Do have a look at the locations page for my favourite outdoor locations across London.
I photograph children, couples, families, and weddings throughout the year. Each season has something very special to offer with the different natural light and flora. Studio photo shoots can be booked for any time of year, no matter the weather. I have written a blog to give you an insight into the unique experiences and photographic results a photo shoot in each season can provide.
Keeping it simple and comfortable are key. I have written a blog that will help guide you, and a Pinterest Board for ideas.
Above all, these six top tips will help:
1. Avoid logos and cartoon characters
2. Add layers and textures
3. Think classic
4. Be inspired by your surroundings
5. Create flowing movement with dresses and scarves
6. Match to anyone else in the photo shoot
What you bring on the day does depend on the location, type of photo shoot, and time of year/day. I will send you a list of things to bring in our pre-photo shoot call, but for outside sessions the fundamentals include blankets, snacks and water (more than you think you need if children are involved), a change of clothes, favourite toys (if for children), and items for adverse weather (brolly, wellies, and raincoat). Oh, and more snacks. So important to keep children energised and involved for the 2-hour session.
We must always plan for adverse weather, and not to worry if it does rain on the day of your photo shoot. We can stay inside or head into the outdoors as planned as rainy photos can be just as beautiful. And think of the additional colour and accessories we can use, from hats and brollies to gloves and wellies.
I will send you an email with a free high resolution digital image a week after the photo shoot has taken place. The email will have a link to a secure, online photo gallery and the password for you to access this gallery. The email will also include instructions on how to select your preferred images in this gallery and how to purchase them.
1. First, just complete the contact form. The first steps are often the ones that hold us back, but don’t worry, it will be worth it.
2. I’ll then get back to you to arrange a chat about the photo shoot and to answer any of your questions. It is important you have a chance to chat to me as I want you to feel comfortable with me as your photographer.
3. If you’re super happy, then we will book the date and location in the diary, and I’ll send you a booking form.
4. Completion of the booking form and payment of the session fee will confirm your booking.
My calendar does get filled up, so do see if you can arrange your date with me as soon as you feel a photo shoot is for you.
