Booking a Relaxed Family Photo Session, West Sussex
How many photos do you have where you’re all in them? That aren’t selfies?
By booking an hour session it’s completely tailor made to you!
You can have it with just immediate family, grandparents and cousins etc, even your pets. It’s completely up to you. And you can have the session where you like.
These are your memories.
This family wanted some lovely photos indoors, before heading out for some family fun time, with a short walk.
By being in the clients home the boys were able to relax and show me their toys, which we included in the session. We could also do a mixture of photos to include a plain backdrop plus some just relaxing on the sofa having fun.
Once the children were getting bored we then wrapped up warm and head outside for a walk with their dog.
As you can see my sessions are designed to be fun and capture some wonderful family memories… where everyone is included.
Feel free to get in touch to book your relaxed family photo session. We can then decide where you’d like to have your session. Do you have a favourite walk, place to visit or even at my home studio.. the choice is yours.
There are so many beautiful areas in Sussex! Mine has always been Tilgate or the beach but recently a client introduced me to Leechpool Woods, in the Autumn, which was stunning!
Or, if you have a favourite area to walk your dog, let me know as we may be able to head there for your photo session.
Being outside is ideal for families because it enables your children to be free. They are able to be themselves and play, ensuring natural images.
Its your session, so it’s up to you. I love it when I get to meet, aunts, uncles, grandparents, nephews etc..
If you decide to book with me, I will send you a questionnaire to gather information about your family and what you would like to out of your session. This enables me to ensure I meet you needs and that you get the most out of the session.
I also ask for information such as children’s names, ages, hobbies etc, as it’s allows me to chat with them, when we meet and put them at ease.
I have my own children, so I am not expecting yours to be little angels. Don’t worry if it takes them a while to get used to me. The more relaxed you are, the easier it is for the children.
As well as photography, I also work in a school for children with special needs, so please do let me know if your child has any additional needs. I will ensure that the session is adapted to their needs.
How does the session work?
Prior to the session, we arrange a date to meet up, which will only be cancelled if the session is heavily raining. A little bit of rain just makes for a fun session!
The session will last an hour but you can book a double session if you prefer a bit longer. I also offer indoor/outdoor sessions where you can have a studio style session and then head out for a walk. Click HERE for more details.
We will discuss who is attending your session because you can bring pets or other family members. The more the merrier.
I will also email over some clothing ideas. This includes information about ideal colours and using as few patterns as possible, to ensure you have timeless photos. Ultimately though, as long as you are comfortable, anything goes.
These sessions are about you and your family, so it’s important that you wear something that represents who you are.
Once we meet for the session, we will head off for your walk, allowing the children to have fun. I will take a mixture of photos, some natural, photographing the children as they play and interact with you. Plus, some more formal ones by stopping along the way, making the most of the stunning backdrop.
Dogs are an important part of any family, so they are always welcome to come along for the session.
