“Experience and create a family heirloom to be cherished forever”
I get so excited when I book a family portrait shoot as the experience is easy going, fun photography that truly captures your individual characters as well as your bond and relationship. You don’t need to take your family to a studio, all my shoots begin where you are all most comfortable, your home. Photographing around your home and in your garden adds a personal feel to images and also helps everyone relax into the art of being photographed.
We will then travel to an outdoor location such as your favourite park, a beauty spot or some place that holds a special meaning. Here we get to spend some quality and creative time together and I will add props, some direction and lots of silliness to bring out the smiles and laughter. What I seek to capture is the essence of what makes your family unique and your love for one another and with posed and candid photographs I am able to create a story of your family as they are now.
THE COST & WHAT HAPPENS AFTER
The session fee for a family portrait session is £95 and will take up to 3 hours. A collection of beautifully retouched images will be presented to you on a slideshow to music and you can create display products and albums. You will receive an online gallery with a unique password where you can view and share your image collection with friends and family and you can order individual fine art prints through an online store from the gallery. The experience is about you and I will listen to your ideas and together we will create something unique and to be treasured.
I have a variety of wall display products and a handcrafted fine art folio within my sample collection. There is a choice of frames and sizes and I will help you to design and create your own masterpiece. The final product price will vary according to style, frame and size but as a guide here are the products within my sample collection;Fine Art Double or Triple Folio from £100
The perfect size to stand on display or tidied away as a keepsake, the fine art folio is a delight and one of my signature products within the collection. The large triple folio can showcase three 8″ x 10″ images or there are a number of mount options to include multiple images. The fine art folio has a choice of 15 cover colour options and I have a swatch sample so you can see and feel the textures.
Sophisticated, elegant and contemporary, the Quartz is a stunning addition to my collection. The Quartz is a single print encapsulated with total optical clarity between two clear sheets of acrylic (2mm front and 12mm back), giving an overall thickness of 14mm. The metallic print gives a distinctive look to portraits, with its glossy finish and metallic appearance, it represents another dimension for creating images with exceptional interest and depth. Metalised paper adds stunning visual impact and a contemporary flair to my photography.7″ x 7″ Multi box trio £155 Simple, elegant and extremely versatile this string of connected box frames are very popular. This unique product is truly effective in appearance and lends itself particularly well to newborn photography but works brilliantly with family portraits and pets also. There are five natural frame mouldings to choose from, Dark Brown, Black Wash, White Wash, Bare Ash Wood and Pine. 40″ x 30″ Box frame £395 Simple yet elegant best describes this box frame. It has become an alternative to the canvas and provides the ‘off the wall’ look and keeps the image tucked neatly into the frame moulding. There are five natural frame mouldings to choose from, Dark Brown, Black Wash, White Wash, Bare Ash Wood and Pine. 20″ x 24″ Multi Frame in Wood Whitewash £300 I wanted to create a product that showcases the purity of newborn portraiture and by using a whitewashed wood I believe I have done so with this beautiful timeless piece. You want to see those tiny hands and feet and this multi image product wonderfully captures all your babies features. My framed products are created by a British company that have been framing for over 35 years. Their experience in the field of framing is unrivaled and the quality in their workmanship is unquestionable. 30″ x 30″ Square Multi Frame in Petina Thick black frame £480 With a true WOW factor this magnificent multi frame is a showstopper. The perfect setting for a 9 image story board style collection and the frame is a contemporary, wire brushed moulding giving an aged effect. 36″ x 24″ Canvas £400 This modern and stylish product is the perfect way to display your photographs and one of the most popular products. Your image is printed and enlarged before applying a canvas effect seal to the surface. The print is then wrapped over a 2″ block to produce a three dimensional finish.
These are the prices of my product samples and I would love to bring my sample collection to your home for viewing. Colours, frames and sizes can be customised and will be quoted for prior to production. Full payment is required before products are ordered and due to the nature of the product no refunds can be given once development of the product has commenced.
WHERE I SHOOT
I am based in the Buckinghamshire town of Milton Keynes, which is situated in the South East and within a 45 minute commute to several cities, towns and villages. To ensure that I am able to dedicate the maximum time to every shoot I will travel within 30 miles of Milton Keynes, however if you live further afar and interested in booking then I’d still love to hear from you.
I grew up by the seaside…..It is my personal pleasure to photograph families having fun at the beach near to my home town of Plymouth and so I offer a limited number of seaside experiences in Devon and Cornwall for £150. If you’d like to chat about booking one of my family portrait experiences please contact me
I love photographing children, they are brimming with life and personality and with them they bring an abundance of spontanaeity and creativity
