What’s your photography style?
I generally just love to catch people being themselves and the relationships between your family members. It’s a very relaxed experience as you just carry on as normal. I love families of all shapes and sizes because the thing that unites them all is their love of each other. Of course we’ll get some nice portraits for you to give to the grandparents too! There are a tonne of examples of recent shoots on my blog if you want to see more.
I hate having my photo taken, what can I do about this?
Don’t even worry about it, so do I! Sure, the first few minutes you might feel a bit awkward, but believe me everyone relaxes into it… Because I’m usually in your home, you’re in a familiar environment just hanging out with the people you love most. There’s no awkward posing or anything like that. Read some of the testimonials to get a feel for what it’s like having me around! And also, give this blog post a read 🙂
How many photos do I get?
After our time together, I edit down your photo time into the absolute best of the best shots. You’ll receive a minimum of 30 photos per hour of photos, but depending on what we get up to this may be higher. These will all be fully edited and in JPEG format. Some photos will be colour, some black and white depending on the shot. I do not provide unedited photos or RAW files.
When will I see the photos?
You’ll have your full gallery within four weeks at the latest… I’m sure they’ll be worth the wait! They’ll be uploaded into a password protected area of the site so you can grab a glass of wine and watch them at your leisure marvelling at how amazing your family is!
How will I get my photos?
Like the families I photograph, no two homes are the same. As such I offer a la carte options or packages to let you get your photos the way you want them. If that’s digital images, frames or albums, I can help you with all this and more. I am really passionate about the products I have sourced. I use some amazing UK-based companies and do all the design in-house so you have a completely unique, one-of-a-kind heirloom album or frame to enjoy for years to come.
Do you have insurance?
Of course. I have full public liability and professional indemnity insurance.
Where are you based?
I’m based in St Albans, Hertfordshire but I travel all over the UK and further afield to photograph families. I usually photograph people in their own homes and neighbourhoods so I’m happy to go anywhere and it will only add on a minimal travel cost to your shoot. Otherwise, take me with you! I go on holiday with my families to capture the true relaxation of family holiday time. Similarly, if you’re coming to the UK on holiday and want a record of the trip, I’d be delighted to take your photo. I find visiting new places hugely inspiring when it comes to taking your photo! I’m happy to travel to wherever you are, just let me know where and when and I can give you a more detailed quote.
I’m sold! Can you photograph my family?
Great, give me a call or drop me a line to tell me! I’ll then ask for a retainer and completed questionnaire about your family and the date is all yours.
