Toddler & Family
Little ones tend to be happier after a night's rest, so I typically suggest morning sessions, or after their nap in the afternoon.
I have a variety of blankets, backdrops, and accessories that we can choose from when you arrive. Please feel free to bring your own accessories as well. If you have any special items that mean something to you e.g. an old wood rocking horse, a stuffed toy, a special blanket - please bring it and we can try and incorporate it into the photos.
Don't forget changes of clothes and think ahead to what you would like to see your little ones wearing in photos on the wall, Try and refrain from harsh colours, clothing with motifs or characters. If you are having a family photo wear colours that compliment each other, DON'T match. But DO coordinate, most of all be comfortable. Please also consider hair, makeup and nails as I won't be responsible for editing hair styles, adding eyeshadow or painting in chipped nail varnish.
We will need the medium backdrops for a toddler session, this is more often than not done at my home, however if you are blessed with a large living area I will be happy to come to you. "At Home" sessions will have more of a "lifestyle" or natural (less posing and props etc) feel to them.
If you would like a studio style family photograph, we will need the large backdrop. The backdrop will accommodate two adults and two/three children. For larger families I would recommend a location photoshoot.
Location shoots are ideal for families to capture a more natural feel, especially if there are many of you and there is a family member with fur and paws! I have various locations I can take you to that aren't too far away. I've been invited to use the most stunning location for all year round family photoshoots, secret gardens, a lake, woods, giant lawn games, pic-nics, the list goes on.. 95 acres of beautiful landscaped gardens for little old me to use..... if you would like a LOCATION SHOOT in prestigious surroundings, capturing beautiful memories of your family ... even catching the stunning warm light of the golden hour before the sun sets.... you won't be disappointed!! contact me for session availability.
