Your Shoot

Family photography

Before the shoot:

It is always wonderful to capture the essence of your family in your own home where you are all relaxed and children will be as natural as ever whilst the connections between you and your special family can shine. This is particularly lovely when there is a new arrival in the family! Equally, there is nothing like taking the shoot outside and letting your children let off some steam! Working with the ever changing seasons is fabulous. I love working with natural light in both the home and outside which can bring natural charm to your family. I will chat to you about what to expect from the shoot and once you have secured your booking with me, I'll email you some helpful hints, such as what to wear and how we can make the most of our time together so that we get some wonderful natural shots of your family.

On the day:

I will arrive at the time we've agreed and give you the time you need so that we capture the best moments with your family. No one likes to feel pressured by time and I want the whole family to feel relaxed and at ease during the session.

During your shoot, to keep it as natural as possible, I will give you some direction to make sure we get the best light and surroundings for you and then let you enjoy your time together to allow the unique relationships in your family shine. I will probably shoot for about 90 minutes, but this is flexible depending on the needs of your family.

After the shoot:

I know that everyone is very excited about seeing the photos! To make sure that I give you the best possible shots from the session, I will carefully select and edit about 40 of the shots that I feel show your families unique spirit and charm. I aim to get the final shots ready for you to view in 2 weeks when they will be available via a secure online gallery for 7 days for you and your family to enjoy and decide which shots are your favourites to include in your order.

Once you've had a chance to see your beautiful photos, you and your family may decide that you would like to order further products other than those included in your package, then this is the time to let me know. Once payment has been received, I will go ahead and place the order for you and within five weeks you'll be enjoying some wonderful photos.

Just to let you know.....

If you are unable to make the shoot due to illness then I am happy to reschedule however if this happens a second time there will be a 50% rebooking fee.

The rain doesn't stop play! Normally a bit of rain doesn't mean we can't go ahead with a great shoot. However, if the weather is just too bad then we can reschedule at no extra cost. Not only are children unpredictable but also our weather!

If one of your little ones is finding it all too much don't worry. We can pause the session until calm has resumed. There's nothing worse than trying to fight the will of a little one and it makes for a happier session if we just take our time.
