Fathers Day Mini Session

Fathers Day Mini Session

Fathers Day Mini Sessions, Horsham, West Sussex.

Fathers Day is coming and we can all agree that 2020 has been a crazy year.  When we celebrated the New Year, none of us could’ve imagined that a couple months down the line we’d all be shut indoors, trying to keep our families safe.

Fathers Day Mini Sessions are for that special man in your life.  I want to help you remember Lockdown of 2020 and the special times that you had as a family.

This session can be purchased for Fathers Day and used at a later date.   I can provide you with a gift voucher to be given on the day and redeemed when lockdown is relaxed even more.

OUTDOORS

These sessions will be run outside, to ensure you are safe and to maintain a social distance.

If you have a large garden I can run the session from there, or alternatively it will be in a local beauty spot, such as Southwater Country Park.  Backdrops can either be natural or I can provide a plain one.

Who can be in the photos?

A  maximum of 6 people can be in the session.  This can be parents, children, grandparents, cousins, the choice is yours.  If you wish to have more people included, please get in touch so that we can discuss the options.

How does the session work?

Prior to your session we will discuss the best place to meet, normally in the Horsham area.  The great thing about outdoor sessions are that children tend to be more relaxed. Allowing us to get fun, smiley images.

Clothing plays a large part of the photos, therefore, I will give you some guidance on what to wear.  Although, ultimately, as long as you are all comfortable, it really doesn’t matter.

Being relaxed and having fun is definitely a main part of the session, as we really want to capture the love and happiness within your family.

 

PLEASE NOTE: These sessions are only valid until August 31 20120, unless lockdown is extended further.

What happens afterwards?

 

After the session I will edit your photos and provide you will an online gallery.  You will be able to choose your photos from the comfort of your own home, at your own leisure.

I do sell wall art and additional prints if you wish to purchase and photos for gifts.

Family Photography after lockdown… back open and taking bookings

Family Photography after lockdown… back open and taking bookings

Family photography after lockdown.. sessions now available as lockdown eases in Southwater, Sussex

Family photography after lockdown is more important than ever. Having been through such a tough few weeks as a family, why not celebrate and book a photo session?  We have all come to realise our families are extremely important and sadly during Covid 19 many people lost family members and wished they’d booked that last photo session.

 

Now that lockdown has eased slightly, I am available for outdoor family photo sessions around Horsham, West Sussex.

 

My studio space is not suitable for adhering to social distancing safely.  So, unless you have a large enough indoor space any session will need to be done outside.

 

It is still possible however to use backdrop.  The headshots below were all taken outside, on the same day, using various backdrops.  

Outdoor session venues

There are so many beautiful areas in Sussex!  I am happy to travel to your favourite area or can choose a suitable place for you.

Being outside is ideal for families because it enables your children to be free.  They are able to be themselves and play during the photo sessions.

Having a long lens means I am able to stay further back from your family.  Keeping you safe, at all times.  Also allowing you to interact with your children without me getting in the way.

 

If you would like to know more about a family session please click HERE to be taken to my family photo page.  If you would like to know more about head shots and personal branding please email me at clairewildersphotography@gmail.com

Can I book for later in the year?

Yes, I am taking bookings for later in the year, including Christmas and Autumn sessions.  I believe Claire Wilders Photography will get extremely busy as families update their photos, so it is important to book sessions as soon as possible.  If you are pregnant and wish to book your newborn session, we can discuss the options, so please do get in touch.  You will find more information on my newborn photography page HERE

How do we keep safe and are you following guidelines?

 

I will take all the necessary precautions when taking bookings and during sessions.  At the moment only 6 people from different families are allowed to meet so I will adhere to these rules too.  You as clients are extremely important to me and I intend to keep you safe.  As the numbers ease and we can meet in larger groups, I too will work to this.

Autumn Photography Sessions in Horsham

Can you believe the summer is over and its only 11 weeks today until Christmas!

BUT… between now and then is my favourite time.. Autumn.   Autumn photography sessions are one of my favourite family sessions because this season is just gorgeous. The light at this time of year is just stunning and it is the perfect backdrop for your family.

Autumn Photography sessions Horsham

Around Horsham and Crawley there are some lovely places to spend a glorious autumn day with your family or dog. I thought I would share a few of my favourites, plus a few of my dedicated followers have given me their ideas too.

For more information on Family Sessions please click here

My favourite places to visit:

Tilgate Park, Crawley, is my absolute favourite park! No matter where I have lived no park has ever been as good as Tilgate.
Autumn Photography sessions Horsham

Not only is it absolutely stunning but there is so much to do.  Whether it is building dens and climbing the trees in the woods, walking round the lake and having a picnic or visiting the nature reserve. Other things to do here include Go Ape, play park, rowing boats, Smith and Western. It is so easy to spend the day here and is a wonderful place to tire out the children without spending a fortune. Parking is £1 per hour but all proceeds do go back into the park and for the nature centre it is only £4 for an adult and £3 for age 3-16yr olds.

Buchan Park is a place where I spend many days during my childhood climbing trees and having picnics.
Autumn Photography sessions Horsham

This is definitely a back to nature kind of place. There is ample free parking and its only a short walk to a beautiful lake and the perfect paths for kicking leaves or walking the dog.

Autumn Photography sessions Horsham
Sheffield Park this National Park is absolutely stunning in the autumn.

Family Photography Sheffield ParkThe colours around the lake are like no other. There is no tree climbing in the actual gardens but they do put on events for children to do throughout the year. However, there is a natural play area a short walk away and this includes a den area and soon to be replaced huge swing!

Southwater Country Park is another great park in the area.

The lake provides a great place for swimming and water sports during the summer and then year round is the Dinosaur Park. A great place to spend the afternoon with lots to entertain the children. In the summer it gets extremely busy with families picnicking either around the lake or in the dinosaur park but as the nights close in and days get cooler it definitely gets much quieter.Autumn Photography sessions Southwater Country Park

Petworth Park is another National Trust place which is home to hundreds of deer.

There is a paying car park (free for NT) which provides easy access to the park. It’s a beautiful place to sit and watch the deer or wander along the many paths around the park.

Wey and Arun Canal is not a park but it is a beautiful place to go for a walk

It’s lovely to see the canal boats and at Christmas you can even go one to meet Father Christmas. Canal boat River Arun

All of the above places are dog friendly, although most of them do require your dog to be on the lead.

I hope you like my list and feel free to message me with your favourite place

I will be running autumn mini sessions in various locations over the next few weeks so feel free to get in touch or like my Facebook page Claire Wilders Photography

Newborn baby photography sessions in Horsham..

Newborn baby photography sessions in Horsham..

Newborn baby photography sessions in Horsham.

Why have a newborn baby photography session for a new baby, isn’t life crazy enough without having to schedule in a photo shoot as soon as they arrive?

You are quite right, the first weeks are crazy and therefore go past in a blur.

However, by planning ahead, while you are pregnant, you will appreciate being having had a newborn baby photo session booked in. t They will last a couple of hours but the memories will be there forever. Babies grow so fast in the first couple of weeks and you very quickly forget how tiny they looked when they first arrived home.

This session allows you to capture those gorgeous features forever while having a few hours to sit back and relax!  Some parents have even been known to fall asleep because the studio is warm, they know their baby is in safe hands and finally they are able to relax for a few minutes.

How to book?

We are know due dates change so we book your newborn baby photography session for your due date.  When your new baby arrives we can then confirm a suitable date, ideally within the first 14 days.  We aim for that because this is when your baby still loves to be curled up, which makes posing easier.  You can still book a session after this date, some poses may just take a little longer.

Your baby is MY priority so the session is completely baby led!  If they need feeding or cuddles, we stop for a break until they are ready.  The session normally takes around 3 hours because your little one normally needs a few rests in between.  I also love to capture a few photos of you as a family so feel free to bring siblings along too.  

If you would like more information on booking a newborn baby photography session do not hesitate to get in touch or visit my Newborn baby page HERE

MOTHERS DAY is coming… are you ready?  Let’s celebrate them all!

MOTHERS DAY is coming… are you ready? Let’s celebrate them all!

Mothers Day Photography sessions

 

Why are mothers day photography sessions important?  Let me ask you a question?  Are you one of the organised people that can think of awesome presents months in advance or are you the person that leaves it to the last moment?

Whichever you are, I can help…. because I am running photo sessions to celebrate Mothers Day.  We are all getting older and know that our parents won’t be around forever.  But do you have any recent photos of you and your mum? Or of you and your children? We all have the excuses, I want to lose weight, I hate having my photo taken but what if you didn’t have the photo to look back on? How would you feel?

You today are who your children will look back on and your mum today is looking her best.  Lets capture those beautiful memories with a Mothers Day Photography Session.   

 

Whether it is for:

Your own mum (or dad, if from a single parent family.. it’s a celebration remember), wife, girlfriend, nanny or grandma.  Daughter and her family or even just your children.  The choice is yours.

How does the session work?

This day is about celebrating all mums, regardless of the age of their children, and all the amazing thing they do for us.

Whether you would like a voucher to be given on the day so that you can come at a later date as a family… or booking it prior to Mothers Day so that you can give the gift on the actual day.  The choice is yours.  This is a celebration of mums so feel free to bring three generations of families.  I want your Mothers Day Photo Session to be memorable day providing wonderful pieces of art that you can proudly show on your wall for many years to come.
