Family photographer Essex and Suffolk, offering natural photos in a relaxed atmosphere. Photography that focuses on the love and connection you share as a family.
You have the choice of going outdoors or staying in. Outdoor family shoots take place in beautiful surroundings and allow your child to run free and show off their personality. Indoor family photo shoots focus on your cosy home life. Read on to find out what to expect during a family photo session.
“She is so easy and helpful to work with. She understands what you are going through as she is a Mum herself and I could tell she genuinely cared about getting the shots we wanted.”- Sarah, Mum to Nolan
The early years are unbelievably precious. You want some beautiful quality photographs to look back on, and to remember exactly how they were at this time in your life. When your child grows up, they will get to see just how much you loved them.
Outdoor Family Photography Essex, Suffolk and beyond
Non-traditional, outdoor family photo-shoots take place in a quiet, relaxed environment to achieve genuinely happy and natural images. We can take a walk in your favourite park, build sandcastles at the beach or explore your local woods. If you would like a really stunning backdrop for your family photos and to create a fun, new family experience, you may like to go further afield. If you are unsure about what location to choose, I can offer some fantastic suggestions. I’m also happy to hear your suggestions and I’m available to travel anywhere in the UK.
What to expect during your family shoot
In between playing and chatting I will be taking informal photographs of your child, as well as shots of you together and as a family. This is mostly in a documentary style with minimal interference from me, but also includes some gently posed family photos. I know from experience that someone is always missing from the family photos.
Would you like your child to have fun and explore? That’s great, because we will never have a photo session with you standing in front of a white background.
Do you feel a bit nervous about having your photo taken? That’s completely normal, and it will disappear after a few minutes. The best photos are always where you are actually doing something or are in the moment. The reason for feeling nervous is partly not knowing where to look or where to put your hands. I can help with all of this!
Also, working outside helps to get genuinely happy and relaxed photos and I take my time to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. All of this enables me to create beautiful art to put on your walls or to keep as prints.
At-home family photography sessions
A nice alternative to an outdoor session is to have your family photos taken at home in a relaxed style. Picture you and your family snuggled up on the sofa or in your bedroom, finding out who’s the most ticklish, or simply reading a book together. Informal, indoor family photo-shoots also allow you to do something that you all enjoy, like baking a cake or playing your child’s favourite game.
Prices for digital photo packages range from £150- £350 depending on how many photos you would like.
Family sessions make my heart sing! It’s such a joy to capture that precious family bond. So many of the families I’ve photographed tell me that they have their photos proudly displayed on their walls.
