LIFESTYLE SESSIONS

THE PHOTOGRAPHY SESSIONS

I specialise in timeless and natural family photography that will evoke memories for years to come. I offer a bespoke, “on location” service and each commission is unique. Sessions which can last from 1.5 – 2 hours depending on how many members of the family are involved and how young the children are. Please do feel free to call me if you would like a tailored quote to suit your family photography requirements. 

The images that I capture of your family are a combination of individual portraits, family groups, photojournalistic shots of children at play, your family having fun and also those little details that are part of your life. I’m happiest where you are happiest – whether that be at home or at your local park.

LIFESTYLE AT HOME

For the Family Lifestyle at Home photo shoot I usually visit you before the shoot to discuss your requirements and show you examples of my family photography.  I will also discuss with you what to wear, which rooms have the best light etc and what you want from the photography session.  I always find this helpful to meet the children (daddy’s needn’t be present) so that I am not a stranger on the day.

On the day of the shoot itself for the Family Lifestyle photo shoot I will have some type of plan whether we go out on location first or stay at home to start with and capture life at home.  It is a very organic plan!  Really, it is all dependant on the children on the day and I work around accordingly. Click here to see an example of a Family Lifestyle at Home shoot. This shoot takes place on either a weekday or Saturday morning.

The session fee includes:

  • Pre-shoot visit to meet the family
  • A guide on how to prepare for your photography shoot
  • 1.5-2 hour fun filled photography session at your home or on location
  • Getting approx. 120 images ready for you to view and choose
  • Personal delivery of your order

The session fee is payable on booking and does not include digital files or products. Please see below examples of the wonderful products I can supply with the memory making images that I will create from your photo shoot. All prices include VAT.

Monday – Friday – £350
Saturday – £450

PORTRAITS IN THE PARK

I am blessed with where I live in Kingston-upon-Thames to have several open spaces, parks around me and so for this type of session I designate a a location.  The photography session isn’t as detailed as my lifestyle shoots so only portraits and family groups will be covered in this time, even so, I still produce wonderful images in an idyllic setting.

Shooting in the park is one of my favourite and popular shoots. Here we can truly get lost in the moment. We will try some informal family poses but we’ll also enjoy simply playing and capturing those relaxed candid moments. Dogs are particularly welcome at these sessions as they are an important part of your family. To see an example of a Portraits in the Park shoot click here. This shoot takes place on either a weekday or Saturday morning or on a Saturday afternoon once a month.

The session fee includes:

  • A telephone consultation to discuss the finer details of your session
  • A guide on how to prepare for your photography shoot
  • 1.5 hour fun filled photography session
  • Getting approx. 90 images ready for you to view and choose
  • Personal delivery of your order

The session fee is payable on booking and does not include digital files or products. Please see below examples of the wonderful products I can supply with the memory making images that I will create from your photo shoot.

This takes place the comfort of your own home approximately a week after the photography session and takes around 1.5 hours. The viewing starts with a slideshow of the images put to music and then we go through them individually to decide on wall art or for contemporary book which tells the story of the photography shoot. I suggest to all my clients that they come with an idea of what they want from the session.  For more details of the bespoke aspirational items I can produce for you please scroll further down the page for more information about my products.
