FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS – I am a professional photographer who specialises in creating beautiful photos. I care deeply that my clients love their photos – but don’t just take my word for it, take a look at the gallery below for samples of my child and family photography shoots as well as some of what my clients have had to say.

INCLUSIVE PRICES – With packages designed for all budgets and needs you are bound to get the photos you want at a great clear price.

FOR EVEN THE MOST CAMERA SHY  – I take pride on making even the most camera shy of mums, and often dads, look fantastic, I’ll give you tips before the session on things to do whilst I’m shooting to bring out the best in you and make you and your family look great; and of course during the shoot I will chat with you throughout, to bring out the natural essence of your family, always done in the most flattering light available.

NATURAL & AUTHENTIC –  My No.1 aim is to provide you beautiful images that you’ll love forever, and to build that love for the images in the first place, they need to be a true representation of you and your  family, so I always make sure the images produced from your shoot are Natural & Authentic to your family.

LOCATION – The most important thing when we are deciding on your shoot location is to go somewhere thats familiar with your family where you all feel comfortable, happy and relaxed, this could be in the comfort of your home or a local park or somewhere along those lines, I will suggest locations but also open to hear where you would like to shoot.  For baby sessions it is best to stay at home as this is where baby will be most content. If you would prefer a studio session my studio in Surrey is private and relaxed, however I feel families prefer the result out on location.

QUICK TURNAROUND ON PHOTOS – You’ll get the photos via a password protected image gallery within 3 days of your shoot.

You being here tells me you are probably looking for a photographer, well if you need a photographer that captures the uniqueness of your family in a beautiful and natural way, then you are at the right place.

One of my main priorities is providing a bespoke service to each one of  my customers from start to finish. I want the whole experience to be enjoyable for all, so I’ll give you everything you need to prepare for your shoot, so you can just relax have fun and enjoy your photoshoot.

I don’t want you to be ‘happy’, with the final results, I want you to be over the moon about them and tell all of your friends! My aim is for you to come back to me year after year as your family photographer.

 Frequently Asked Question’s

What happens at a family shoot?

We will meet at our chosen location and have a quick chat whilst looking for the best lighting for the shoot. If will be a very fun and relaxed photoshoot where I take picture of your family interacting naturally, so that I can capture images that are natural & authentic to your family.

 

When should I book my family session?

Most people book their shoots about 4 -6 weeks before the shoot date, however I do also get some people booking 6 months to a year in advance ( some people like to book their next years shoot to guarantee wanted dates. It all depend on my availability, so of course the more in advance you book the more likely you are to get you requested date and time.

 

Do I need a makeup artist?

All packages that include hair & makeup will be done by yours truly, I am a fully qualified hair and makeup artist so you are in great hands, you can see my hair and makeup work HERE

For these types of shoot, I like to keep the makeup as natural as possible, of course I will take into account how you normally wear your makeup, after all this is going to be a true representation of you in your day to day life.

 

What is retouching?

Professional retouching aka airbrushing, photoshop amongst other terms, is when software os used to edit a photo to enhance and perfect as much as possible.

It is very rare that you will see a photo in a magazine or advertising campaign that hasn’t been edited in some way.

It’s the norm and a very important stage for any professionally produced image, especially when they are to be used professionally. It subtly removes skin blemishes and lines and can even slim body parts etc. This is what gives photos a polished look, whilst still looking natural.

The key is to have it done in a way that it doesn’t look edited at all, almost all the images on my website have been edited to some extent and as you will have seen most are done in a very natural looking way.

 

What should I wear?

Once you are booked you will receive A guide to your photo session! This will have tips on what you should wear, don’t worry you wont have to go shopping specifically for your shoot, unless you want to of course!.

 

I am nervous about the kids behaving, I am very camera shy, I don’t like having my pictures taken.

Ok these are all major concerns for a lot if people when it comes to booking a bump, newborn  and family session soo to ease these concerns and put your in the best place to be prepared for your shoot, I have created guides for each type of shoot, these will include preparing the kids, preparing yourself, what to wear and more.

 

Can we shoot studio or location?

My pregnancy & Baby shoots take place in the comfort of your own home, using natural window light or a pre-agreed location, sometimes both. They can include partners and other children.

Families sessions are great on location but of course you can have these at home as well, some families have requested I come to theirs to capture them getting ready for the shoot, as well as on location,

My Studio in Surrey is also available as an option .

 

Where is your studio? 

My home studio is located in Whyteleafe Surrey, it only 30 mins by train from London Victoria or London Bridge by train. With the choice of 2 stations within a 5 mins walk.

 

Can I show you samples of what I like?

Of course, I love to see your ideas and the direction you want to go, we can use these samples as inspiration or as part of the mood board for your shoot.

 

How do I book a session?

Please fill in a booking enquiry form or send me an email with your requirements, I will then contact you to discuss your needs, what you want from your images, your availability, etc.   I will then send you an email confirming the provisional booking date, time and location as well as cost of your chosen package on a contract for both of us to sign, so you have a full written quote and the terms and conditions reconfirmed before you make your deposit payment.

 

How do I pay?

All deposit payments can be made online via Paypal, which I find a great safe option for both parties. Balances can also be made by Paypal, alternatively you can pay by Cash or Card on the day of your shoot, please note there is a 2% charge for card payments not made via Paypal.

 

What happens after the shoot?

After the shoot you will receive your images via a Password protected image gallery within 3 days.

Then you will need to let me know which of the images you would like me to use for your Announcement & Thank you card and prints. (what and how many depends on your chosen package)

It will be easy for you to let me know which ones you have chosen right from the gallery. I will also give you my advice on the ones I think would work best for you.

If you have Prints as part of your package or have ordered some extra, you will need to allow 10 days for prints & cards.

 

Do you offer student discounts?

No unfortunately not at the moment, my prices are already very competitive and as such there isn’t any room for discounts without me making a loss

 

Colour or Black & White?

Personally I like to shoot a variety of both coloured and black and white, this make the images more interesting and varied, however if you have a preference please let me know.

 

Natural light or flash?

I like to shoot with natural light where possible, but of course depending on the type of finale images you would like to achieve I can also work with my variety of  flash lights where needed.

 

What type of printer do you use?

All my prints and products are done via an award-winning, industry-leading professional printing lab. With a huge range of products and prices you are bound to find something perfect for you.
