Summer Fun Family Photoshoot
Fabulous family photos are some of the best parts of any family’s collection of memories – you can never have too many, and that’s what my Summer Fun Shoots are all about. I know as a mum that capturing those magic moments of fun in the sun; the bare feet, the giggles, the sunkissed faces, the surprising imagination of children, all the family together, means almost none of you in the picture!
Let me do this for you!
My shoots can take place in a number of magical and stunning locations. Places where you can all relax as a family so we will have plenty of time to capture all the fun. I love spending time scouting spots where the backgrounds and lighting conditions will enhance your portraits so you all look fantastic. We can play games and capture job.... unfold in a relaxed way - this is how I achieve some of my best and most natural and compelling shots.
As Charlotte (aged 8) said when asked what she liked about last year’s summer fun shoot said,
If, however, you have a favourite location, perhaps your garden or a favourite walk then let me know so we can chat about how we can capture you all in a setting that is special to you and your family in a place that you and your family love. In the same way, if you see a composition or pose that you really like, then this can be woven into the fabric of the shoot.
So why should you book a Summer Fun Photoshoot with me?
I work hard to be as flexible as possible, to fit in around your family’s commitments and make your experience easy, relaxed and enjoyably memorable from your first contact to the receiving of your photographs and artwork.
I pride myself on being creative and producing stunning images that capture your family in a wonderful moment in time. These moments can make wonderful gifts – especially for doting grandparents and they can be made into beautiful pieces of artwork for your home, something you'll treasure for years and a legacy for your children.
Capturing loving memories like this is an art and it is an art that I love.
It is not just me saying this though, here are some kind words from one of my clients,
Many people worry about fixing a date and then having terrible weather or another family commitment comes up. Well, I pride myself on being as flexible and easy to work with as possible. Shoots can be rearranged, even at short notice and, though I'm happy to work on overcast days, if the heavens open or if we have strong winds we will postpone and reschedule the shoot. I'll keep an eye on the forecast on the days leading up to your session and speak with you the day before to agree if we're going ahead.
Another common concern is a small person having a meltdown: Ha!!! I know the feeling:) Kids will be kids....... I'm a parent myself and know just how challenging our little ones can be at times! I've been photographing children for years and find I can coax even the shyest/most energetic child into a place where I can capture some stunning portraits. In certain circles I'm known as The Toddler Whisperer!!!!
So many families miss out on professional portraits as they worry that they just aren't photogenic!!! I would be a wealthy lady if I had a pound for every time I’ve heard a friend or client say this... and it’s just not true. Yes, you might not have looked your best under the horrible yellow light at last year’s family Christmas get together... with the most unflattering angle you were shot you from. I don’t know about you but, I swear my other half always manages to shoot me from an angle that makes me look the size of a hippo!!!!
It’s my job to capture you looking your best. And I do this by looking for the most flattering light, working out your best angles, advising on styling and what colours would work well for you. And if you’re at all worried about your weight, good posing can drop 10lb instantly! You just need to be your beautiful self and let me worry about the rest....
