Your Family Photography Session

Thanks for looking at my family photography session page. I love to include older siblings and parents in my newborn, baby or child portrait sessions. Often there are many photos of dad with the kids, but not mum as she is more often than not the one behind the camera! And very rarely are there family photos of both of you with your children. That's why it's so lovely that I can include you in the photo experience :-)

You may think that your older child won't sit still especially with their newborn brother or sister. Don't worry, I have lots of tricks to get toddlers to cooperate! It's mostly about getting them to see the photoshoot as a game or getting them to interact, as most toddlers will go into full on tantrum mode if you try and force them to sit and smile if they don't want to!!

The family photography session is held at your home (in London or Surrey), which is much more relaxing for you than taking your children to a studio, as they are in familiar surroundings and you have all the things you need to hand! Sessions take up to 2 hours (except newborn sessions), but are not timed - I won't leave until I know I have captured all of the images you want!

I will normally set up in your bedroom or spare room. Hopefully there is enough natural light but if not I have a flash so no need to worry if your room is dark. And provided there is enough space for me to walk around the bed, no room is too small! I either throw blankets over the bed to make a background or I pose you against a blank wall. You can also have your family photography session in a local park if the weather is nice, as long as your baby is already sitting up.

I love to make each session totally unique so that your family has a memorable experience as well as beautiful photos for your home. I will show you 20-30 images after the session in a mix of colour and black and white for you to make your product selection from. I generally do this within a week of the shoot as I know you will be dying to see them!
