What to Expect
I make sure that you know exactly what to expect from me at your photo session. Once your date is confirmed, we will have a phone consultation one week prior to agree on the perfect location for your shoot, to give you tips on what to wear & how to pose, and to find out all about your family.
My aim is to capture your style, your personalities and your family story. Every family is different so every session is specifically planned around you and your family, whether that be capturing your blooming bump, little ones, bigger ones, or extended family special occasions.
The photography session is all about fun! Most tend to last for about 1-2 hours, at a time of day that best suits your family. I work on location using natural light. I absolutely love the English countryside; we live in a beautiful part of the world so combining people and nature makes for a far more interesting composition than a plain white backdrop. It’s nice to use somewhere special to you – perhaps a park, play area, your garden or local woods. Or alternatively I am happy to suggest a suitable location depending on the time of year. Whenever that time is, it’s all about capturing your family having fun and doing what you enjoy together.
I try not to direct or pose you too much. My style is natural and contemporary, capturing you through play and allowing you to be yourselves. I find that the best shot isn’t when I ask a child to sit still on a park bench and smile at me, it’s usually a few minutes later when they are giggling at Daddy pulling a silly face!
After the shoot, I’ll head back to the computer to review your images. I then select the very best portraits to edit and retouch where necessary, and produce a stunning collection of photographs that you will be able to review via a secure gallery hosted on my website.
