Family portraits are a very usual thing in the studio but Luke and Katie are quite unusual clients in that they have been coming to visit at the end of November every year since, well since ever pretty much. I think this is their eleventh year actually and it is always lovely to see them and how much they have grown and changed over the last twelve months.

Their mum and dad buy prints from their photo shoot to fill in their Christmas present shopping list (much nicer than fighting through the crowds on the high street!). Each year, family members get prints (of the same size) to update their frames with.  It’s a gift that they say is always looked forward to and received with excitement as they change the year’s photo to the newest version.  It’s a great way to keep all of the family in touch with Luke and Katie’s progress – especially for those folk who don’t get to see them as often as they would like.

Photos in general make great gifts for any occasion as they are so personal – the recipient will know that you have set aside time to create something special just for them and they can admire the results all the year round.  Plus, like I say, you don’t need to park, queue or carry heavy bags!  Family portraits in the studio (in Crawley Down) cost £95 which includes your session and your five favourite digital images so you can create different gifts for different family members or friends.  Those digital images are yours to print and share as you would like to and there are some great gift options available online, from prints to mousemats, mugs to laser etched glass blocks – so you know you can always find something to suit.

If you would like to give this gift to someone else, then you can always choose to buy a gift certificate.

Family Photography

A family photo shoot in my warm and welcoming studio in Crawley Down is suitable for groups of up to two adults and three children (please call me to discuss before booking if your group is larger than this).  The session fee includes three digital images and costs £95.   As with all of my photography, there’s no sales or viewing meeting to attend – you simply view and order what you would like from your private online gallery. Here’s a link to my digital and print pricing.
