FAMILY PORTRAITS

One minute they are in nappies, the next they are asking for the keys to your car; kids grow up so quickly.

Relax and Have Fun

I love photographing families. The best photos are those where you are relaxed and having a great time. My style is very natural and involves lots of silly noises, games and fun.

Family Portrait Photo Sessions

My family portrait sessions take place at a local studio in Howden and usually last around an hour. For sessions featuring younger children, I work as quickly as possible to keep their interest. 

Can I bring grandparents, my sister's family, ...?

Absolutely! The more the merrier. 

A family portrait session is a great opportunity to get everyone together. I love it when my clients bring along their siblings and their families and the grandparents. We can get a great shot of the whole family and then a selection of different groups and individuals. Grandparents always love a picture of all the grandchildren!

When booking your family portrait session, we will discuss who will be coming along and your preferences for group photos so I can plan the session.

What should we wear?

The single most important thing when choosing your outfit for your photo session is to select clothes that you feel great in - if you feel great, you look great! 

Here are a few tips:

  • Smart casual is a good choice - my style is relaxed and natural and for some of the photos you may be seated on the floor

  • Choose a colour scheme - co-ordinating colours across the family group helps the final images to pop, this does NOT mean all dressing identically!

  • Avoid mixing bright colours with pastel shades as this will make some people look washed out compared with those in brights.

  • Avoid big logos that will age the photos (when I look back at my old school photos it's quite distracting to see the 'A-Team' or 'ET' featuring promintently!)

FOLLOWING YOUR SESSION

I know you will be eager to see the images from your session, so I usually post a sneak peek on our Facebook page within a week of the shoot (or I can email it to you if you don't use Facebook).

We will arrange your viewing appointment for approximately two weeks after your session, and I will bring along some of our stunning sample products with me. I work with the some of the world’s best suppliers to offer a selection of beautiful, hand-crafted options for displaying your favourite images, including frames, bamboo panels, mounted prints and albums.

Of course, if there is something that you would like that is not listed, please do ask.
