Sometimes portraiture can be a planned and staged affair - I'm not going to use the word formal as that's not really my thing but definitely there is a strong element of posing and control involved in creating the images. Then sometimes you are doing a portrait between two livewire kids and their parents and that means that you have to be realistic about how much control exactly you're going to get. I mean, have you ever tried to choreograph an 18 month old? Well, you know what I mean then...
So I just set up a broad scenario and we all find out what's going to happen and capture that instead - this relaxed style of family photography is great for parents ad young children. So what if everyone is looking at the camera - these images are natural and can capture the spirit of the general fun, craziness and love that knits a family together.
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.
