Family photoshoot

Experience a Family photoshoot Hertfordshire.

When it comes to family portraits, we like getting outdoors for a fun, low-pressure session, however, we also take family portraits in the studio.

In the studio, images tend to be posed and you can come whatever the weather and at any time of the day. Outdoor sessions can have a mix of spontaneous images as well as posed ones and can feel less overwhelming for younger children as they tend to love being outside where they can run around and let off steam.

The Studio Experience.

Upon arrival we will serve some refreshments and spend some time just chatting and getting to know you and your family – we won’t put a camera straight in your faces. This gives everyone a chance to feel more at ease and comfortable. We will photograph a variety of poses/setups and allow for an outfit change if desired.

The session typically lasts 1 – 1.5 hours.

We work at a pace that you and your family are comfortable with opportunities to have a break in between set ups. We try to avoid booking more than one session per day so that we can dedicate the time to you and your family.

The Location Experience.

We will meet you and your family at an agreed location. We will spend some time chatting and getting to know you and talking through what to expect for your session.  When everyone is ready, we will begin taking photos with a mixture of posed and unposed moments. Being outside means there are opportunities for the little ones to have a break and run around.


What to expect from your Family photoshoot

Preparing for a stress-free photoshoot.

We will send a full preparation guide that will give you tips on how to prepare for the session. We will give some advice on the types of outfits to wear so you can coordinate as a family.  Our style for studio sessions is neutral and on location, we suggest suitable colours that enable you to stand out from natural backdrops.

Artwork Consultation.

We invite families back to the studio to enjoy a slideshow of their images. This enables you to see the beautiful options we have available to keep these special images and we can advise and help with the designing process. This session usually lasts up to 1 hour.
