Outdoor Family Photo Sessions, West Sussex
I’m so glad that you have visited my website because this means that you’re thinking about an outdoor family photo session. So, you have come to the right place!
I love outdoor family photo sessions because they allow children to relax and be in a place that they feel comfortable. There is no pressure to “perform” and you’ll be surprised how quickly they start to pose for me, because they’re having fun.
Outdoor session venues
Do you have a favourite place to go? If so, let me know and we can discuss whether it is possible for me to travel to your favourite area, or I can choose a suitable place for you.
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.
