Outdoor Family Photography
Relaxed Photoshoots in Nature With a Professional Family Photographer
The core of my photographic training has always involved outdoor photography. Every time I get an excuse to use it, I will.
As much as I enjoy taking photographs of baby’s in the studio, I also enjoy taking the studio outside, and literally working outside the box! And I think kids prefer it too.
Some children are naturals in front of the camera, to be sure. But after shooting hundreds of babies and their families, I can promise that most will start a little shy, then become a little bit cheeky, before they become their natural self. As both a parent and a photographer, I’ve seen it all!
The number one thing I enjoy about running family documentary-style photography sessions outdoors is that children warm up to the camera faster when they are outside.
Kids need to feel comfortable, be allowed time to get used to having their photograph taken, and start to enjoy being the star of the show – which happens much faster when we’re out taking photographs out and about.
And I get to capture beautiful moments between you and your children, occasionally asking you to hold a pose, but mostly allowing all of you to just be yourselves.
The £100 photoshoot session booking fee is payable when you book and secures your date & time in my diary. It does not include any product or digital files.
As a rough guide, most of my families typically invest between £400-£1,500 on their family photography.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT &
HOW IT ALL WORKS
During your Outdoor Photoshoot
Capturing beautiful moments between you and your children, your family together, occasionally asking you to hold a more formal pose, but mostly allowing all of you to just be yourselves.
You get one hour of relaxed, natural photography in the private grounds of my Harlow-based photography studio at Parndon Mill.
Then in the luxury of a private viewing session, you can browse the carefully prepared images, and select any additional products you wish to purchase.
You’ll have a product and price list to take away and look through before your viewing to give you time to look at the options.

Hey I understand, and hear that a lot. As a parent myself I remember how I felt.
It’s great if you can be in one of two. I like to take a snugly family portrait at my sessions. Although it’s your baby that’s the focus, they like to see you in the photos too as they get older.
