Your Family Photoshoot
I promise not to make you pose!
You hate having your picture taken and you have very few photos of you with your family. It is playing on your mind that special moments with your children are not being captured.
You want someone to photograph your family beautifully and naturally, right now, before your kids lose their baby teeth, chubby cheeks and their inhibitions.
I have listed the different Family Shoot options below or if you would like to meet up and chat further before booking, please contact me.
Photoshoot Options & FAQs
STUDIO – The most popular choice for family portraits! The studio offers flattering lighting in all weather with music to put you at ease. There is also a green room where kids can recharge, costume change, or you can have a cuppa. If weather permits, I usually suggest the kids run around in the garden and I keep snapping.
LOCATION – I am very happy to come to your home and photograph you in your own environment. Or if you love walking in a specific area as a family or are real beach lovers, I am happy to travel (within reason).
– 2-3 hour session either in my studio or on location.
– A private online gallery for you to view and purchase if you like what you see.

STUDIO – You can either have your session in my studio which has gorgeous flattering lighting and a party atmosphere with your favourite music.

I really love to hang out with your family for a chunk of the day to capture your life together in a natural and beautiful way for you to cherish forever. This shoot is a little longer than the family shoot and covers which ever part of the day you choose; getting ready for the day, breakfast, football practice, ballet class, a walk in the woods etc.

A family shoot is a few hours concentrating on family portraits, maximising on flattering my subjects and capturing the natural expressions.
A Day in the Life documents every detail of your lives together over a chunk of the day of your choice e.g. getting ready for the day, breakfast, football practice, ballet class, a walk in the woods etc.
The session is whatever you want but I usually try and capture you as a whole family, as a couple, individual portraits of the kids, and kids together; formally and informally. And anything gorgeous that I happen to notice on the way!
I will edit all the images and after a few weeks will upload the high resolution images onto a private gallery which you can browse and purchase. You are free to use the images as you like (apart from advertising). I offer all sorts of other services if you would like to see more, please visit my online Shop.
I charge for petrol if further than 40km radius from Haslemere.
Please just have a look through my shots and see which look you prefer. It is entirely up to your taste and how you see your family in a frame.
Would you like to be formal or informal? I would always lean towards classic so that the images don’t date too quickly. Some people like to coordinate by choosing a few colours. Have a look on Pinterest or online and see what inspires you and please share that info with me!
Teddies / onesies / costumes / favourite clothes / and your pets of course!
I have many tricks and usually win them round very quickly as the session is more like a party atmosphere and they usually have a good time and want to come back. However, if your child really isn’t on great form on the day, I am very happy to postpone the session at no extra cost.
I always shoot everything in colour but during the editing process I choose which I think brings out the image in the best way. If however you have a preference, please let me know and we can discuss.
