FAQs

Where will the photo shoot take place?

Family photo shoots take place at a location of your or our choosing. I have lots of ideas that we can talk through and decide what will be the right setting to suit your family, be that a woodland, the park or at the beach. Some of the popular locations I have used are Hylands Park, Danbury Lakes and Hyde Hall Gardens to name but a few. However I have lots of lesser known locations that I like to use to make sure your family photos are special and bespoke just for you.

Is there a good time of day for the shoot to take place?

Yes! I recommend family photo shoots to start no later than 9am, the earlier we start the better the light. I also don’t recommend photographing babies and very young children in the afternoon, as they tend to run out of energy as the day wears on. Depending on the time of year and if you have children of an age for which it is suitable, a golden hour evening shoot is also a wonderful time of day to capture your family moments.

How many people can we have in our photo shoot?

An on location family photography portrait session is for a family of up to 5 people. There will be an additional charge for extra family members and more time will need to be allocated to your shoot.

What should we wear?

First and most importantly you should wear what you feel comfortable in, if you feel comfortable you will look comfortable and happy in your photos. But fear not, I will send you my tips on ‘what to wear’ prior to your shoot.

Can we bring props/toys?

Yes, you are very welcome to suggest props for your photo shoot or to bring your child’s favourite toy that they may enjoy to be photographed with. For an on location family photo shoot with particularly young children, it is good to be armed with toys, snacks and drinks.

What happens if it’s raining?

If the weather is truly terrible then we reschedule.

When will we see the photos from our session?

You will receive details of how to access your private online gallery within 7 days of your photo shoot taking place.

How long do we have to decide what we would like to order?

Your gallery will be left online for 1 week. There is a £20 charge per extra day.
