Family Photo shoot options

We have two options to capture your family depending on your requirements. Our private shoots are booked at a time and date that suits you and viewing of your images takes place at our home studio. Our mini shoot sessions are on a set date and a shorter time session is scheduled. Viewing and ordering from our mini shoot sessions are online. Please call us to discuss which option would best suit your families needs.

Our Approach

Emphasis is on capturing beautiful, natural images of you and your family, new born or bump. Photo sessions are relaxed and informal so please don’t worry about having your photographs taken.

This is about getting the right surroundings for you and your family. You choose the venue and we’ll take the photographs! It might be at home or in your garden, at a park of in the woods climbing a favourite tree! We want your shoot to be as enjoyable as it can be so that we capture the images that you want and will be delighted with. During a shoot of approximately 90minutes we would aim to photograph the children individually and in whichever combination you choose. That way you have the photographs that you really want for your home.

Clothing

We suggest you choose clothes that you are most comfortable in, and that reflect your lifestyle. Feel free to bring a change of clothes for children if you wish. We suggest avoiding stripes and any large text print as this can be distracting.

Babies and toddlers

Make sure that your shoot time is planned for a time of day to suit your child. We are more than happy to break for feeding and changing whenever it may be needed. We do not stick to rigid session times and can be flexible around your family’s needs. Please feel free to pick up the phone, we would love to chat and answer any questions you have. 

Toys

If your child has a favourite toy, you may like to include this in the pictures. As we are intending to capture their childhood, their favourite toy will have a lot of sentimental value in the future – no matter how grubby and chewed it may seem now! Any toys or props you think will help our child to relax and have fun then feel free to bring along.

Viewing your images

You will be able to see your photographs approximately two weeks after the shoot. If you have had a mini shoot the images are viewed via an online gallery.  If you’ve had a private shoot the pictures will be presented in the form of a digital slide show to music at our studio near Harpenden. During the viewing you will be able to choose from a selection of quality handmade frames, canvases, and other exciting display options. An online preview gallery can be emailed to you prior to your viewing if you wish.

The viewing experience was exceptionally organised, fun and helpful. We would have floundered around for a long time if we had just been left to review them!

    Newborn photo shoot Harpenden
    April 11, 2019 by
    First time mum Jade brought her beautiful daughter Olivia to the studio recently.  They were such a joy to photograph.  Newborn photo shoots can’t be rushed and we pride ourselves on making parents as comfortable as possible.  You are still getting used to your new role as parents and we are honoured to capture these early magical moments shared between parents and their newborn. Having been recommended by The Verulam Clinic in St.Albans we chatted through the shoot prior to meeting.  This may be your first trip out since having your baby so it’s important that you feel as relaxed as possible and know what to expect. There’s no pressure to find parking, we have a purpose built studio at our home with...

    Cake Smash photo shoot
    September 6, 2018 by
    Cake smash photo shoots have become increasingly popular.  Having started in the US, the tradition has come across the water and many photographers are now offering these as a new way of celebrating a child’s first birthday. It was one of our wedding couples who introduced us to the concept as they wanted us to photograph their son’s first birthday.  How could we refuse! We provided the location, backdrop, flooring and professional images (oh, and the cleaning up of course!) and they provided the rest!  The photo shoot starts with a few shots of the birthday boy or girl.  And of course some of the cake untouched and any family photos requested. The birthday cake is then introduced and we capture what happens...
