I am an emotive family photographer and my goal isn’t to get a stiff shot with everyone looking at the camera, but to make it easy for you to enjoy each other, embrace, laugh and enjoy your time together. I use games and prompts to help you relax and make you look beautiful. You can view the family portfolio HERE.
Before the shoot
Together, we will decide on the best location for your photos. Maybe there is place that is special for your family, or maybe you would like to visit a new location. We can photograph you in your home as long as there is enough natural light. Many families like staying at home because of the intimate and personal feel it provides. There are many wonderful locations that I love to shoot at, but I am always open to your ideas as well. You should choose a location that fits your family and age of your children. We are blessed with being close to the beach, lovely hills, forests and fields and I am happy to introduce you to my favourite places.
If we are shooting in your home, I prefer late morning, because that is when the light is best. If we are shooting outdoors we will shoot either in the morning or in the evening. The light is typically too harsh mid day. If your children are up for it, shooting one to two hours before sunset provides gorgeous light and atmosphere. The images in my portfolio look the way they do largely because of my use of light and the time of day your session takes place has a huge impact. Many families tell me that they simply have the kids take a late nap or have some down time prior to their evening session. You can also bring pyjamas and change your children before heading back home. I am available to book both on weekends and weekdays.
Your family portrait session will typically last around an hour to 90 minutes.
Soon after your photo session you will receive a link to your online secure gallery (typically after only 3 days, because I know how excited you are to see them!). You will be able to view your secure online gallery in the comfort of your home and share it with your family and friends.
Booking fee of £45 reserves your preferred date and includes my travel within 15 miles from Dalgety Bay.
