A family lifestyle photography session is all about capturing your family as you are, in places that you are comfortable with and has some meaning to you. I offer two type of sessions in the category they are 'Family Lifestyle' and 'A day in the Life'.
The difference between the two is that a Family Lifestyle session takes place at one location of your choice and lasts up to 1 hour. The aim is to capture a mixture of candid and naturally posed portraits. A day in the life session will typically last between 1-2 hours and again will take place at a location of your choice be it at home, a local park or if you're feeling really adventurous how about Chessington Zoo for an idea.
The more creative the location the more diverse the end result will be. But it’s really down to personal taste and what kind of atmosphere you want to set, personal and intimate or fun and energetic. We can even combine both locations in the same session where possible. The aim here again will be to capture both candid and naturally posed photos, with emphasis more on the candid. The title of the collection really speaks for itself but if you're interested to see photos of what a typical session looks like take a look at a real A day in the Life photo session.
I also offer seasonal mini photo shoot sessions throughout the year which are ideal if you are trying a lifestyle photo shoot session for the first time, or are wanting a family portrait to mark a special occasion, or maybe you would like more regular but affordable professional sessions? Then these could be right for you.
My style is very relaxed and I like to make our sessions fun. I truly believe that a photo shoot at home or on a location of your choice becomes unique to you and your family. My sole aim is to capture candid images that reflect genuine emotion and highlight your individual personalities as well as your dynamic as a family.
What kind of activities can we do to make the photos more interactive?
Enjoy all the fun at the fair (when in town)
Take a relaxing stroll in the park
Become a big kid with your little kids and have a play around on the swings
Enjoy a picnic or maybe even fly a kite
Play time = bed jumping (where permitted) or play with favourite toys
Bubbles are always a big hit!
Hide & Seek
Read a book with your little one/s
Relax in a group cuddle whilst having a chat
What should we wear?
It's best to be mindful of any colours that clash and anything that is too dark you won’t be able to distinguish from one person to the next. Just be sure to wear something you feel completely comfortable in. I can provide more personalised telephone assistance with this once your photo shoot has been booked. Or I can send you a copy of out expectations guide, simply drop me an email.
What happens after the photo shoot session?
All images from your session will be edited and artistically enhanced. They will then be re-sized to two formats, high resolution for print and low resolution (with logo) for web use.
You will be given access to an online password protected gallery in which you can share your photos with friends/family/social media and/or order additional products such as prints and albums etc. The gallery will be live for 1 month.
If you're ready to book or would like to schedule an informal chat about your photography session drop me an email.
