Family Photography Suffolk
A portrait session in Suffolk normally lasts between 1 to 2 hours and we can shoot indoors and/or outdoors, at a location of your choice or I can provide a location for you. It’s completely up to you and what works for your family. Being a mum to 3 young children means I know how to quickly create a rapport with even the shyest of little ones. I also know how quickly they can move and I’ve had plenty of practice at keeping up!
Before your shoot, we can either chat online or on the telephone to discuss what you ideally want from your session. I can give guidance on what to wear and the colours that work with the season – as well as what time of day suits you best. Your session can take place in your home and garden or maybe you have something else in mind, depending on time of year; blossom, lavender or autumnal leaves. You might not have a specific location in mind but we can discuss all of this and make a plan that suits you all.
During the shoot if snacks or snoozes are needed, that’s absolutely fine. The session is yours and what works for your family is one of the most important aspects to stunning and natural portraits that you’ll love. Posing is kept to a minimum, we naturally all look at a camera when it’s pointing at us but it’s my job to capture the in-between bits along with the genuine laughter and giggles. My main aim is for you all to enjoy your session and feel relaxed and comfortable.
After your family session, you’ll receive a link to an online gallery to choose your favourite portraits and I can be on hand to guide you through this and also help decide on how any of your favourites can be displayed in your home with frames, canvasses or albums to be enjoyed by you now and also generations to come.
I also offer mini sessions seasonally throughout the year and this may suit your needs more than a bespoke lifestyle session – especially if you’re still growing your family. For more information send me a message and I’ll keep you updated on my upcoming sessions.
