As a mother to two children I know first hand how important it is to capture the everyday in addition to those grand special occasions. Every day my boys grow and change before my very eyes; my baby's golden curls will be gone in a year, my little boy's freckles will fade, and some day the hundreds of children's books that fill every corner of our house will be packed away, and I want to hold on to it all, I don't want to forget a moment.
There is so much beauty and magic in creating and raising a family, and I believe it is important for families to regularly invest in professional photography sessions to capture that.
My style of Family and Children's portraiture is not like that that you would find from a standard photographic studio. There are no paper backdrops, and no hot lights. Instead we will have fun, play games, laugh, and feel special! You will spend time interacting as your family normally would, but with a little positioning from me so that I can take photographs of you in the best spots for light and colour. As an on-location specialist I know of all the gorgeous spots in Derby and the surrounding areas, or maybe there is somewhere particularly meaningful to you!
I will meet you for your session with all the necessary equipment we will need to make beautiful pieces of art, and I will have arrived early and found the perfect areas for us to shoot in. That way you and your children can just relax and enjoy the experience! You are invited to bring any toys, teddies or snacks that might make your child feel happy and comfortable, and we will completely work at their pace.
The Family Portrait session is a 1 hour outdoor location session and is £80. An hour also gives us opportunity for some outfit or location changes during your session so that you receive a wide variety of beautiful photographs to choose from. To keep it simple session fees do not include products, such as your professional prints. These start at £23.
