Family Portraits

I specialise in lifestyle portraiture, using natural light to capture your family in your favourite outdoor setting.  The sessions last about an hour to an hour-and-a-half (depending on the attention span of your children!) and are fun and relaxed.  Who you include in the photos is up to you, but I'll typically take a selection of photos of the whole family, just the children, plus individual portraits - and always happy to include grandparents and pets too!

For younger children, I encourage you to bring toys and activities for natural, happy expressions as they play.  Or, for beach portraits, why not put on some beach shoes or wellies, and splash about on the shoreline?  I'll begin with some naturally posed family shots, then, when the little ones' attention starts to wander, I'll stand back with a long lens for unobtrusive, candid portraiture.   And if the kids are having a temper tantrum and won't play ball? Don't worry, I've got two of my own, so I understand.  I'm always flexible, and if needs be, we'll simply reschedule.  


What's Included?

The sessions cost £95 and include one 7"x5" print of your choice, and a private viewing gallery on my website through which you can place orders for additional prints, canvas wraps, gorgeous acrylic wall hangings and more.  

I have sample products available to help you visualise what your wall hanging could look like.  But rest assured you will not be 'sold to' - I simply give you a password for your image gallery with the option to purchase directly via my website from the comfort of your own home, should you so wish.  

Photo books and portrait albums are also available (pricing on request).
