For full price list please contact me.
These prices refer to shoots in London zone 1-3 or 15 miles from SE9. I shoot on location either in my client's home or at a mutually agreed venue, such as a local park or studio. I am happy to travel anywhere in the UK although an extra charge will apply to cover my expenses and also the extra time involved in travelling to and from the destination.
Family Portrait Session - When to book?
If you like planning like me, chances are you have spent some time dreaming up your family’s portrait session…or dreading it. Anything from the season, the location to the sweet moments your family will share together! Of course, as professional portrait photographer, I always aim to photograph as naturally as possible and advise my clients to ‘go with the flow’ for the most beautiful and heartfelt experience and photographs. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t get the feel, colours or scenery you’d like in your photographs and I am happy to help you plan your session in this way. That is why I always recommend planning at least 2 months in advance, and more if you are booking maternity or newborn portraits. There is nothing more heart-breaking to me when a client is hoping for a specific season, or setting that goes with it, and I can’t accommodate them because I am booked! As a portrait photographer I only book a limited number of clients per month to ensure that I can provide for my clients the experience and photographs that they’d booked for.
Family Portrait Session - How long do they last?
It pretty much depends on the ages of the children . I always tell clients that it will be clear when the session time is up. Most child or family photo sessions last between 45-80 minutes. That’s my standard time quote. But cold weather may wear out the kids sooner. If I need more, I’ll suggest a break, or try to trick the kids into cooperating a bit longer; but if I am happy with what we’ve got, the kids can call the shots.
Family Portrait Session - Where are they held?
It is a personal preference of the client if they wish to have their portrait taken outdoors or in studio. There are many beautiful parks, forests or even urban locations in London to have a portrait session. These depend on the weather but are real fun and typically convert into a nice family day out after the session. Greenwich park is a favourite location of mine.
Studio is a classic option and always dry and warm inside. The Studio is based in Kennington, 5-10 min walk from the station.
Family Portrait Session - When will I get my images?
Your Family Photography gallery will be available for viewing in 14 days after the shoot, and will last for 2 weeks. During this time you can order your prints, wall art and albums through our online shop. The products you order are usually delivered within 2 weeks directly to your door. For specific print requirements, you don’t see in the shop, please contact me.
