FAMILY PORTRAITS: What to Expect
Creating beautiful, timeless photographs relies on children being in a place that is both familiar and relaxed for them - together we will choose a location that is special to your family and provides a great backdrop for your country portraits. I love to be inspired by nature and so your garden, a park or woodland or by a river or beach all offer places for great family photographs. Each season also brings its own colour palette to the images providing endless options and guaranteeing that your images will be unique to your family.
As a mum myself I enjoy working with children of all ages and find each child a joy to photograph. I love to capture the spirit and character of each individual and during a session will see several sides to a child's personality - joy & laughter, love and happiness, energy and independence as well as a more reflective and thoughtful moods.
I keep my sessions informal and relaxed focusing on having fun and working at your pace - so important with small children. Your children will never feel under pressure to "perform" but can be themselves making this an enjoyable experience for the whole family.
My session fees include the shoot time and my expertise & skill in capturing your images plus editing and processing of each image and a viewing session. Together these images are presented as a story from the day and allow you to see the children you know and love in your photographs.
I work hard to create the natural images parents crave of their children and each image is carefully edited to produce a high quality photograph suitable to hang on your walls or to be part of a family album. Each session lasts a minim of 2 hours and may utilise up to two locations.
Session Fee: £120

(As an overall guide most clients choose to spend £400-£1200 on their shoot with me).
