My Approach to Your Family Session
Hello there! On this page you’ll find my general approach to children and family photography. I love to photograph families in their own familiar surroundings so I will come to your home or we could meet at a park, local gardens, the woods or the seaside. I will take some posed shots and will give gentle direction if necessary but most of the photos would be of you and your children interacting and hopefully having fun! Take a look at what generally happens once you’ve booked your session.
Before Your Session
Your session fee (paid at the time of booking) typically covers 1 hour of photography for up to 5 individuals either in your own home or at an agreed location in Hampshire or the New Forest. It includes travel within a 20 mile radius of my base in Winchester.
During the session:
I will have my camera out almost immediately even if I do not photograph your child or children straight away, in order for them to get used to seeing it. I may ask to look around your home or garden to find where the best light is. I will give some instruction for posing but I will try to minimise these as I like to capture more natural expressions and images. Do let me know your ideas and if you have specific shots in mind. I will typically spend up to an hour with you, although newborn photography may take longer in order to build in as many breaks for feeding, settling and nappy changing, as possible.
After the Session:
I will choose the best images and have your on-line private gallery ready for you within 2 weeks. I aim to provide at least 40 edited images in the gallery. I aim to deliver your products to you within 3 weeks of ordering.
