Family and Children ‘Your Story’ Shoots

My family and children shoots are laid back, no pressure, documentary lifestyle sessions – you and your loved ones in your own environment or somewhere where you’re happy to relax, have fun and be yourselves.

Your kitchen, a playroom, a bedroom (pillow fights can be fun and always result in lots of giggles!), or if you prefer to get out into the great outdoors, a garden, the local park, or fields and woods where there’s plenty of room to run around, piggy back race, cartwheel, climb trees, jump in puddles or go for a relaxed stroll – whatever comes naturally. Or leave it to me and I can suggest some fab locations ideal for these no pressure shoots.

Think of it as me creating a gallery to show ‘an hour in the life of you and your family’.

You’ll get a range of shots, from fly-on-the-wall moments to natural ‘team’ shots.  I’m not a big fan of awkward, super-posed photos, I prefer to keep it simple, BUT I’m always on the lookout for great light and lovely compositions, so you can expect me to point out good spots – and then I’ll stand back and let the action unfold. I also know it’s important to get shots of you all together, so expect a little gentle direction for this.

You can wear your favourite outfits or no fuss jeans and t-shirts – whatever suits you and your family.

I try and allow enough time for children (and grown-ups too) to get used to me being around with the camera, as genuine warm smiles and belly laughs are sooo much better than awkward grimaces… Though of course, we all know that kids can have their serious days and that’s all good – I’m a mummy to a fiesty, independent little lady so have a few tricks up my sleeve for those awkward moments when the kids just aren’t feeling it! And I’ve always got a back-up stash of bubbles. Just in case ;)

Sessions usually last approximately 1-1.5 hours, though allow up to 2 hours for a nice relaxed session.

You’ll receive

  • Pre-consultation – a chat or email to find out more about you and your family, as well as for you to find out about me and my shooting style and for me to answer any questions you may have.
  • A fun photoshoot (allow approximately 90mins) – personalised to you and your family.
  • A gallery of images bursting with memories. I don’t limit the number of images you receive (you can expect 60+), so it’s a hassle free way of making sure you get all the images you love, without the need to try and pick out your favourites. Besides, lifestyle shoots are all about conveying a snap-shot ‘hour in the life of {you and your family}’ and there’s no way this can be achieved in a half dozen images.
  • Images are professionally edited and delivered in high resolution digital format via an online, password protected gallery with full licence to download, print and share to your heart’s content.
  • Your online gallery includes the option to order premium grade prints and canvas prints direct from the pro lab that I use and trust.

£250  ** 10% discount for term-time midweek shoots (£225)**

Price covers photo shoots of up to 6 family members (including pets). Please let me know if you’d like to chat about bigger group shoots.

The Your Story album and print package is for anyone who loves family photos, but doesn’t love the organisation involved in ordering prints and albums. For anyone with a PC, laptop or phone crammed with memories bursting to escape, but without the time to make it happen.  Or for anyone who’s been disappointed with the quality of prints or albums from high street shops and online suppliers.

Nothing quite beats having prints that you can touch and feel. Afterall, we all love to look at photos on our phones and computers, but how often do we actually get round to printing them off, or creating an album?

Whether it’s prints for frames, or prints for walls, timeless albums for coffee table reminiscing, or a statement canvas for that space above the fireplace, prints have a unique way of bringing back memories and feelings of treasured and cherished times, of making us smile, cheering us up and filling our hearts with love on days when the memory of family moments is all that matters.

Let me do the hard work for you. Simply choose your favourite images from your gallery (super easy using the ♥ icon within the gallery) and I’ll design a beautiful heirloom album to tell the unique story of your family and favourite people in a creative and timeless way.

Using a professional print lab that I know and trust, your boxed, hardback and heavyweight album will feature layflat pages for full-width printing, high quality professional grade ink and paper and your family name printed on the front cover. And of course, all your favourite moments inside.
