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
Sessions take place in the comfort of our lovely studio in Market Weighton and last no more than an hour. During that time, we aim to obtain around 15-20 images for you to treasure, including family groups and some individual portraits.
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 prominently!)
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 few days of the shoot (or I can email it to you if you don't use Facebook).
After all of the images have been individually edited, we will invite you back to the studio for your viewing session, where you can see our sample products and choose how you would like your favourite images to be presented. I offer a selection of lovely products including mounted portraits and keepsake boxes, framed prints, bamboo panels and albums.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY APPOINTMENT?
Family portrait sessions usually take place on a Saturday and appointment slots do fill fast, so I recommend reserving your appointment around a month in advance.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The session fee is £100 for a Family Portrait Session, which includes a 1 hour photoshoot.
Following the photoshoot, we will arrange your viewing session so you can choose how to display your final images from our beautiful product options including framed prints, bamboo panels, mounted prints and albums. For a copy of my full price list, please email me or text 'Family' followed by your email address to 0779 598 1540.
DO YOU OFFER GIFT VOUCHERS?
A family portrait session makes the perfect gift for an anniversary, Christmas, birthdays, Mothers Day or Fathers Day. We can also add gift vouchers in any amount over £20 to be put towards any of our products. Please drop me an email with your individual request.
