About my babies, children & family sessions
I’m delighted to be able to invite you for your family session.
We will have already spoken on the phone or by email and considered the location options available to you.
I will welcome you to my bright white home studio where my lights live amongst a selection of backdrops and props to choose from. Here I can offer you a coffee or a green tea maybe and spend a little time getting to know you and your little ones before we embark upon shooting. One of the best bits about photographing a family unit is the process of meeting with my subjects, breaking down barriers and coaxing genuine expressions. There are no rules, I love a great smile but I equally love a good serious face that speaks volumes about your kids’ personality and mood on the day. I’ll set up poses and compositions but freedom of movement is of paramount importance to me as your photographer…I like to follow whatever interactions and expressions are unfolding in front of the lens be they ‘pile-ons’ or peeking through fingers. Some pictures may not even contain any faces. My aim is for you to have enjoyed our time together and for you to leave a session thinking “that was great fun and more relaxing than I thought it was going to be!”
For a natural light lifestyle shoot I can meet you at a brilliant location…sand dunes, forest, urban alleyways for us to explore? There are so many amazing local landscapes to pick from. You may already have an artistic vision that we can collaborate on through the exchange of ideas and moods. We can arrive with outfits and props that add a narrative to your session, perhaps your little ones want to be super heroes, cowboys and Indians or ballet dancers. Or maybe something a little more bespoke with a swimsuit and wellies combo? The more original, the better the shoot. Outdoor location shoots are always going to be subject to weather and so book well in advance in case we need a contingency date in the diary.
Two weeks after the photo session your private on line gallery will be ready with a link and password emailed to you. From here you can select your FREE 12 ” x 8″ print and order further prints and products like canvasses and acrylics.
If you wish to purchase 15 Hi-Res digital images from your session you can ‘favourite’ your choices from the gallery and receive your images with a print license certificate on a Two Cats In The Yard memory stick. You will also receive a 5″ x 7 ” print of each chosen image. For this option please add £200.
*For all purchases over £100 you will receive a complimentary smart phone app with your favourite 15 images This is a great way to browse your images with friends or share to Facebook or Twitter.
