Outdoor Family Photo Sessions

Outdoor Family Photo Sessions

Outdoor Family Photo sessions Horsham

I have known this family for a long time and we talked often about booking an outdoor family photo session.  They knew it their beautiful daughters were growing up fast and these would make lovely gifts for the grandparents. However, life got in the way and time passed.

But then lockdown happened and we all suddenly had lots of time on our hands, to reflect and decide what is important in our lives.

As the rules of Lockdown were relaxed we decided it was finally time to have that session.

Why book a session?

Lockdown has made us realise that life is short.  We continue everyday thinking “I’m going to do that” but then time passes and we don’t get things done.

My dad passed away with me never having photos of my family with him.  Back then I dabbled with photography but I never even thought about booking a photo session. I would love to have some photos of us all, with him messing around and making my children laugh. 

It’s so easy to capture some of our phones but the quality will never be good enough to put on the wall and most often it doesn’t include the whole family.

 

I was so pleased to be able capture some photos for the family because it’s about creating memories to look back on. 

 

the session

 

Outdoor family photo sessions are great because they give children more freedom to run around and be themselves.  Being older girls though, this is no longer what you do so for these were happy to sit.

Mum was nervous about the session so it was very important to make her feel comfortable.  Like most of us mums, she wasn’t used to having her photo taken and “posing”, so it was all about making her relaxed and offering a couple of tips.

Being a super smiley family it was easy for them all to relax and interact well with each.  I absolutely love the end result and it really does show the true relationship that this family has.  

The area we used was a gorgeous little space in Southwater and made the perfect backdrop.  Outdoor sessions can even be set up in your garden so if this the kind of session you would like please do not hesitate to get in touch. You can do this by cicking HERE and contacting me via my contact form.  The page will also provide you with prices and more information about the session.

Can you imagine having this collection of wall art taking pride of place on your wall for years to.  It will also be a beautiful pice of art for your children to treasure for years to come.

I can offer gift vouchers in full or towards a session.

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.

Things to do with children in Sussex, Sussex Photography,

First of all, it’s no secret that I LOVE Autumn and that I love the idea of moving away from Sussex and back to the mountains and the sea.

Nan and Grandaughter in the Autumn, family photo sessions in sussexLast weekend I decided to drag my two children and mum out for some lovely Autumn photos and to enjoy a beautiful walk around the gardens. This only happened because I promised them a go on the big swing and a play in the den building area afterwards. Family Photo Sessions, Sussex photo sessions, Autumn family Photo SessionsLast year I made the mistake of going there first and NEVER actually making it into the gardens because the swing is absolutely awesome!  The children also spend hours building dens too.

Sometimes, however children don’t want to play and decide they don’t want their photo taken… children of photographers included.

Enjoying the beauty of spring in Sussex

I love the spring and after living away from Sussex for the last 20 years it doesn’t stop surprising me with its beauty!

Whilst driving home from another of the children’s clubs last night we drove past this field.  A quick U turn and a screeching halt in a lay by I bundled the children out of the car to enjoy the moment.

This was at the edge of the lay by with the sun setting in the background, while my daughter was in the field watching it set.

They then decided they wanted to hide along the path before we jumped back in the car and headed home.Children amongst the rape seed, sussex

 

I think writing this blog and technology going wrong actually took longer to do than capturing a lovely moment with my children…

So, put down your tablet, grab a camera and go capture a moment.. happy snapping this spring x
