I treat every photo session like a day out. We have fun, we laugh, we get grubby, we talk about all the love in your family, occasionally we get deep. Your session tells a story of a precious moment in time with your children. That’s why I’m passionate about giving you every single one of those memories we create.
My package includes the photography session at an outdoor location we all love, hand editing by me of all your best images and delivery of an online gallery of all your final images for you to download and share to your hearts content. In addition you will receive a box of high quality 5x7 prints of all your images.
Am I the right photographer for you?
When I think about the images I create, I think about my own family moments I want to cherish and even more importantly, the images I think my boys will cherish when I’m long gone. They’re not of us all looking perfect in our Sunday best. They’re of us in our most beautifully presented raw and emotional state, our personalities shining through.
I don’t always want everyone to be looking at the camera, sometimes I want everyone to be looking at each other, the people they love most in the entire world.
My editing has been described as gritty and raw - they’re not polished and pristine.
If that sounds like you and your family, I’m the photographer for you!
It’s not a prerequisite, but I also adore children and families who love the great outdoors, where the wild is their playground. Whether it’s the beach, the woods, the mountains or the fields - we can explore together and make your photo session an adventure you’ll want to remember forever.
I like to keep things simple, I offer one package for families of up to six people. We choose an outdoor location together where you’ll all feel at your most happy and free.
The Adventurer package
£320 weekdays, £345 weekends and bank holidays
Sessions are either booked as a morning or afternoon slot - I never book more than one session in any slot because I want to give you my undivided attention. I also want to make sure we can take our time. If a child is a little shy, a dad is a bit awkward or if a newborn needs a break you’ll be safe in the knowledge that I’m not rushing to get off anywhere. It’s really important to me that you enjoy the session because I know that if you’re happy and relaxed, everyone else will be too!
Morning sessions start around 9.30 am, afternoon sessions should start two hours before sunset.
Each session includes:
A phone call at least one week prior to your photo shoot so I can find out everything about you and you can ask any questions you may have. I’ll then be able to tailor your session accordingly.
Delivery of my style guide to help you look and feel your best ahead of the day.
A two hour photo shoot outside at an agreed location we all love.
A mixture of family and individual portrait photos taken throughout the session as well as many moments of love and connection between everyone.
A password protected online gallery delivered within two weeks of the session. The gallery will include all of your images (a minimum of thirty) hand edited in my signature style. All images are then yours to keep and can be shared and downloaded directly from the gallery in high resolution with full print release.
A beautifully presented box of all your edited images, size 5x7 professionally printed at my specialist photo lab.
Travel is included up to a 45 minute drive from Arundel, West Sussex. For further afield, travel is charged at 45p per mile up to 1hr 30 minutes from Arundel. Prices on request for further afield.
Additional family members (more than six) are charged at £20 per person. Dogs and cats, more than welcome!
Following your session
After you’ve had a chance to view your images, you can of course order any prints and albums you wish, these include my bespoke Deckled Edge Fine Art Prints.
what happens next?
If this sounds like you, then let’s book! You pay a 50% booking fee to get a date in the diary. I then arrange a time to chat with you over the phone and get to know you a bit better, ask you questions about your family their loves and their likes, favourite toys and silly ways.
I will also share with you my session guide that gives you all the details of what will happen on the day and my recommendations on what will make a really wonderful session. If there’s anything else, I’ve probably covered it in the common questions section on my website!
