DO YOUR FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHS ALWAYS HAVE ONE MEMBER OF THE FAMILY MISSING? DO YOU FIND IT DIFFICULT TO STRETCH YOUR ARM LONG ENOUGH TO INCLUDE EVERYONE IN A FAMILY ‘SELFIE’? If the answer to either of these questions is 'Yes' - it's time to book a family photo shoot!
What can you expect on your day? From past experience I am confident that you will enjoy your photo-shoot as I photograph you and all of the family in a natural setting. Children (and adults) can be a bit nervous in front of the camera so we take time to ensure that everyone is relaxed and happy that makes it easier for me to capture the perfect shot. The family photography experiences can involve all generations of the family so do bring Grandparents or Aunts and Uncles along as well if you like. I do not use a studio and usually photograph families outdoors taking advantage of the natural light. Experience has taught me that younger children can have a short attention span so I need to work fast to keep the session fun and the children interested (bubbles and ‘Pooh sticks’ are just a few methods deployed!). The session normally takes between 1-2 hours and during this time I can take several hundred images which I then edit down to the very best of the images captured on the day.
What do you get? After your photo-shoot I take a week or so to edit and post process the photographs. You will receive at least 30 images from which I will select the ‘Top 10’ to also reproduce as black and white versions. I create either a personalised DVD disc or memory stick (whichever you prefer) with these full-size JPEG images which you can then either print, make photo books with or email to friends to keep as a record of your day. Obviously I can also produce prints of any of the images you may want in a variety of sizes at competitive prices but I find that clients often want a little time to enjoy the images before choosing what to print at a later date.
The all inclusive price of my photo shoot is £195 (no hidden extras). I do not charge cancellation fees if you have to change the date due to a last minute crisis or family illness.
If you are stuck for present ideas for birthdays or Christmas - how about giving a voucher for a family photo-shoot as a gift? They are valid for a year and I create a personalised A5 sized gift voucher with envelope.
Click on the PDF link at the bottom right of this page to download my book containing examples of just some of my work, along with more information about the day itself. Please be patient (this can take a few minutes) as the images are displayed at high resolution to give you a true representation of my work - it's worth the wait!!
My grateful thanks to all the families featured in the book who kindly gave their permission for me to reproduce their photographs.
